Quality : This is not my recording (thanks to MikeD) it was a VHS rip authored to DVD when I got it. All in all it is pretty OK VHS rip which I was happy to watch. Being a bit more critical, this episode is a little washed-out and there is a video glitch about 25 mins in. There are embedded interlace artifacts (combing on horizontal movement) but when watching, I didn't find it particularly bothersome. Audio is generally OK, though there are a couple of points at which the sound 'distorts' somewhat, but nothing so serious as to prevent you enjoying the programme.
