World In Action: Volume 1

DVD Rating: *

Read Andrea Mullaney's film review of World In Action: Volume 1

The visual quality of the documentaries varies because they are from the archives, but by and large there's only a little graininess - the Mick Jagger piece comes off worst - and it's the same story with sound. But that's to be expected, given the age of the original tapes.

No extras, which is a shame, as a background leaflet, or perhaps the reminiscences of some of those involved in making the programmes, would have been interesting. Still, it's a budget-priced release, perhaps to test demand for future releases from ITV's current affairs back catalogue.
