This of course originated in the 50's. So don't expect HD. That given, the audio and video are both above expectations. I read the reviews of other Victory at Sea replications and was worried this might be of poor quality. But it isn't. If you are interested in having all the original uncut episodes, this is the set to buy.

Really good footage just as I remembered it from my youth. Some segments are better, quality wise than others, but the sound was suprisingly good. Often distortion accompanies these old film conversions. But--- the DVD creator really goofed. This series was narrated by Leonard Graves, not Peter Graves of Mission Impossible as the package states.

Poor Quality Transfer to DVD by Timeless Media Group

This is a 2 DVD video set in a rectangular metal container marketed by Timeless Media Group.

Ten or fifteen years ago I purchased the "Victory at Sea" documentary set in VHS and if my memory serves me correct that was a much better transfer from film to video. This set is the original "Victory at Sea" documentary by National Broadcasting Corporation produced in 1952 but it is a poor transfer in that it is very low contrast. Believe it or not it appears that the transfer was made by video copying a screen projection in a lighted room. Remember when you were a kid watching a lousy film in history class and the room wasn't dark enough, to see the film? That's what this DVD looks like. You keep wanting to yell "turn the damn lights off." Low contrast means that the black areas of a scene are not black but gray and the whites are not white but light gray which makes all the scenes look like they were filmed in fog. A blurry washed out effect is the result. Another thing is the company that markets this version did not clean up the dust specs, scratches and other film defects resulting from age and poor storage of the original film. Again, this transfer is bad.

The "DVD features" stating Full Screen Presentation" is misleading since this Documentary was produced for Television format in the early 50s and my copy is most definitely not a "Full Screen Presentation" by today's standards. It is old TV broadcast standard 1.33:1. Another thing is that Leonard Graves supposedly "introduces each episode with analysis of tactics and strategies." Well Leonard Graves is no where to be seen or heard, at lest not on the first DVD. I didn't bother to even look at the second DVD since the first was so poorly done.

This is a great documentary about the Navy in WWII, for those of the age that grew up watching the original series

I started watching the Victory At Sea series when I was young (9 or 10 years old) just shortly after WWII. I think this is the best series ever for showing what WWII was like and what the American Navy and Marines did in the war. I think every teenager should watch the series and know what the men and women had to endure during the war, TO GIVE US OUR FREEDOM that is being distroyed now.

The transfer from film to DVD leaves a lot to be desired. But having said that; it is still a great set to have and the tin box it comes in is a nice addition as well. We also need to take in consideration that the demand for this set is most likely not all that great. I wonder if the Timeless Media Group listed Peter (not Leonard) Graves as the narrator on the 2-disc case to see if someone would notice; I did.
I do really enjoy these because it reminds me of sitting with my dad in front of a black and white G.E television set and watching them, when they were 1st shown, back in the day. I spent 10 years in the U.S. Navy and I sometimes wonder if these awesome episodes influenced my decision to go into that branch of service.
ANCHORS AWEIGH!

Emmy winning VICTORY AT SEA originally aired Sunday afternoons on the NBC network. It was the creation of Harry Salomon, a former Navy man who had assisted in writing a 15 volume History of United States Naval Operations in World War II. Technical advice for the series was provided by Walter Karig, an ex-Navy captain who also authored WWII volumes, but is best remembered, especially by fans of producer/director William Castle, for his 1947 novel, ZOTZ!

Broadway's Richard Rodgers provided twelve themes for this series. In 1953, Rodgers and lyricist Oscar Hammerstein used his "Beneath the Southern Cross" theme (heard in three episodes) for their musical ME AND JULIET, as the song "No Other Love (Have I)." It was that show's most memorable tune.

Robert Russell Bennett fleshed out Rodgers piano compositions for the NBC Symphony orchestra. Much has been made of this program's score (the soundtrack LP was a favorite of Pres. Nixon, for example), but I think it's intrusively LOUD and gets lowered only when narrator Leonard Graves speaks.

The strongest element of VICTORY AT SEA is its newsreel and other actual war footage, gathered from Allied and former enemy sources around the world. The best episode visually may be #25, which shows several kamikaze pilots crashing into Navy vessels.
