2 Comments:

  1. This series was released on DVD’s that accompanied several issues of Australian Geographic magazine. Although it was presented in WS it is questionable if it was filmed in HD as well.

  2. If 9 is serious about HD, then this is the type of show that should be presented in this format.

    Unless of course, it is bits of other shows cobbled together.
