    First off thanks to Diana for pointing out there were some cuts apart from
    the credits and titles in series 1 and 2. I'll have to compare them to the
    UK TV broadcasts to see where these are – I've not noticed them yet! 🙂

    Now to series 3 and 4. Basically they are 4 discs per series, 3 being 13
    episodes 30 to, 42, and series 4 is 10 episodes 43 to 52. Again these are
    Memphis Belle releases and I obtained them off eBay.

    Unlike the series 1 and 2 discs I have which appear to be region free, DVD
    Decrypter reports them as region 2 DVDs (so anyone outside UK, Ireland,
    France, Greece, Turkey, Egypt, Arabia, Japan and South Africa will have to
    check their player to see if it can play them)

    As far as I can tell there are no cuts in the episodes (although I'm sure
    someone will tell me if this is not so). The first thing I noticed is that
    the video quality is noticeably better than the releases of series 1 and 2 I
    have, I would say as good as the thirty five year old tapes will allow
    without major re-mastering work.

    Overall I'm pleased with the Memphis Belle releases – not perfect but
    acceptable for my needs (and considering I've managed to get all four series
    from eBay for about the same price of £39.99 for the new release of just
    series 1).

    Hope this will be of interest to anyone considering purchasing these DVDs.
