American Date Set For DVD And Blu-ray

BBC Home Entertainment and Warner Home Video have revealed the date that American fans will finally be able to grab themselves a copy of the smash-hit Back to Earth saga - on DVD and Blu-ray.

Alongside the news of a UK Blu-ray release, this is great news for the inhabitants of Region 1. Both DVD and Blu-Ray will be identical to the UK releases - meaning the same trilogy viewable in either episode-trilogy or Director's Cut versions, a stack of stonking bonus material, and a full-on 5.1 audio mix that really seems to put a sea monster in your living room.

The 1.78:1, 1080i picture of the HD Blu-ray release is, of course, pretty damn gorgeous, coming direct from the digitally-shot-cut-and-graded source. Though the standard-def DVD doesn't pale, either. We recommend buying both versions. But then we would.

The date for both releases is October 6th, with artwork - which traditionally differs in the States from the UK original, so should be pretty interesting - to follow soon.
