Just got R2 UK check discs through for this yesterday and just finished watching the film now and i can confirm that the DVD features both scores.

The standard option is the Goodwin score which is in 5.1 and DTS.

You can also watch the film with the Walton score inserted back into it in 5.1. This option has to be turned on through the special features menu.

If anyone wants to know anything else just ask, i've not started on the other extra features yet.

Unfortunatly when you get checkdiscs through they never come with packaging, they just come as silver discs with the just the title printed on them, so i can't help with what the finished package will look like im affaid.

Picture looked great to me, very sharp, though i've not seen the R1 version so i can't compaire it. Sound was very good, very detailed, lots of diretional stuff as well. Sorry if that's a bit vague, im not the best person at reviewing the technical stuff on discs.

If anyone else wants to know anything just ask.

johntchance, great news. an you confirm if the Goodwin score version uses the correct cue at the end of the film (as Olivier goes outiside and the camera pans up for the Churchill quote), instead of the one from the Walton score? Also the quote is different on the R1, replacing "Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few" with "This is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning." Can you confirm which one is on the R2?

You can read our full review of this release here.

Summary:
Simply a superb SE. A huge improvement over the region 1 release and probably the best presentation of a 35 year old film that we could expect. The only other extras missing are deleted scenes. The extras are all valuable additions to the understanding and appreciation of the film; there are no ‘fillers’ here.

This is a great epic of a film and this DVD is a great testament to the efforts of the film crew, cast and original combatants in the battle itself.

Many thanks. The correct quote suggests that they used the 'right' print so that's a good sign.

Looking forward to this, I enjoy a good dose of putting it up the Hun

There is two choices in english subtitles. One where everything is subtitled and other where only foreign languages is subtitled.

Both are player generated.

Yes, but not quite as poor as 633 Squadron, and the aerial sequences using the 'Luftwaffe' aircraft of the Spanish Air Force and worlds remaining useable Hurricanes and Spitfires are very good indeed.

So many films, so little time...
