According to Amazon you can pre order in regular or blu ray now, with a release on October 4. It is scheduled to air for the first time October 2nd to 4th. Which means the video hits the streets the day part 3 airs.

Thanks for that Eric. Do you know what the running time of this production will be and if you have any 'inside' info on the 'episode themes'? Regards, Jud.

There are promo videos on the PBS site that will tell you that. As for running time, I heard 5 1/2 hours, though the listings for orders on the PBS page say 6. That makes sense 3 parts, 1 hour and 50 each (more likely than a full 2) IS 5 1/2. I preordered it here, as the PBS asking price is like 10 bucks more at least.

Ok Thanks again Eric. I'll check out the PBS site.
Regards, Jud.

Hi Eric- It's Jud again. Is the release date for 'Prohibition' still Oct.4? As for the Civil War- I prefer the 'old' way [ie., buying the DVD's rather than downloading] of watching his superlative documentaries. Just a thought- but it would be nice if he could make an entire series on: Gangs Of New York; Gangs Of Chicago etc. in the late 19th/early 20th Century- of which I have the books- fascinating reading. Anyway cheers, Jud.
