LET ITE BE - 35MM WIDESCREEN STEREO EDITION
This is THE BEST!
This new transfer has been made from an original, undamaged vhs recording of the BBC2 repeat from 1982.
Unusually, the Beeb screened the widescreen 35mm theatrical print with black bars at the top and bottom.
When released on vhs and laserdisc, this widescreen version was cropped severely at the sides to produce a
full-frame image. Here it is presented unaltered.
Although the film was shot at 24 frames per second, BBC2 aired it in PAL format at 25 fps. For this disc it has
been slowed down to 23.976 fps and presented in a compatible NTSC format, thus preserving the correct speed
and pitch of the original. The actual picture area has been scaled up to 480 pixels and encoded in anamorphic
format so as not to lose any resolution.
In addition to the original mono film soundtrack, this disc also features a hifi soundtrack assembled from the
original mono Nagra tapes and the variously available stereo mixes. These have been synched to the picture to
produce an entirely new listening experience. Dialogue that was previously inaudible is now crystal clear, and the
music shines forth like never before. Allied with the new high quality pictures and comprehensive menus, this
makes for the definitive Let It Be dvd.
