Unsurpassed in depth and scope, its 26 hour-long programs feature an extraordinary collection of newsreel, propaganda, and home-movie footage drawn from the archives of 18 nations, including color close-ups of Adolf Hitler taken by his mistress, that present an unvarnished perspective of the war's pivotal events. Penetrating interviews with eyewitness participants--from Hitler's secretary to Alger Hiss to ordinary citizens who stood outside the battle lines--add spine-tingling, first-hand accounts to an already unforgettable viewing experience.
Informative and unbiased, THE WORLD AT WAR is the recipient of numerous accolades, including an International Emmy Award, The National Television Critic's Award for Best Documentary, and knighthood for its creator, Sir Jeremy Isaacs.
The newsreels are great,it flows very well and the narration by Laurence Olivier is top notch.
The digitization of the pictures and sound on the blu ray set are in keeping with the high quality established during the original production.
The World at War is the greatest and most accurate documentary of the World War II period of history.
It was ok. Not as comprehensive as I thought it would be. Some of the footage was shown over and over again.Published 20 hours ago by Tom W

|Blu-Ray version coming September 2010||
If the original TV interview and war footages were in 4:3 format, make it to 16:9 is not a good thing.... I would rather wish they keep the original aspect ratio.

|Question about the history channel dvd||
The HBO version which precedes the A&E by three years is 1920 min long vs. the A&E which is about an hour or so longer (note specs as listed on Amazon are misleading: the timing quoted for the A&E is only for the core documentary, to which you have to add about 8 hours of supplementary material;...

|Difference between the 30th Anniversary edition and the original DVD...||
The difference is simple: The 30th Anniversary Edition (PBS calls it "The Collector's Edition" -- same thing) contains over 3 hours of bonus material. You want this one, not the earlier version.
