This 2001 release on four discs by A&E is a notoriously poor transfer, especially disk 3. The 25th anniversary release is the same terrible transfer. Both A&E releases lack Closed Captioning ["CC"]. In the UK, a cleaner transfer was released for the 25th anniversary, but rumored licensing issues kept it from the US market. A new 2015 release in both the UK and US based on a BBC digital remaster includes CC. Look for the five disc version with "Masterpiece" in the title. May I suggest a purchase request for the library?

I was very disappointed that this was not the 25. Anniversary edition - which has had the sound & visuals enhanced. Also not CC.
The set I had was grainey & had poor sound.

Superb TV Drama series. One of the best ever along with I Claudius (UK), The Sopranos (USA),Traffik (UK), The O.C. (USA) and Anne of Green Gables (Canada)
