Blackadder Back & Forth
Comparison between the disc from the RC1-Blackadder-Boxset and the english single DVD from VCI and Sky One.
The RC1 BBC fullframe-transfer, which is a PAL to NTSC conversion of the british BBC broadcast tape, cuts of lots of picture information and has also been horizontally compressed.
The RC2 anamorphic transfer from SkyOne and VCI shows much more on the sides, crops only very little from the top and bottom, has a slightly better color timing and is much sharper.
