    I’ve asked “Network ON AIR” to advise me whether the original episodes in the box set are in their true, original 4:3 format or have been “mangled” into 16:9.

    This process of stretching the image to fill the screen is presumably to satisfy those who wonder why the image doesn’t fill the whole screen on a modern TV yet cannot see that “short, fat” puppets (or people) are not how the shows were made.

    Sadly I’ve not had an answer from “Network ON AIR” concerning this question – so far. I’ll update this comment when (if) I do receive an answer….

    I’ve already pre-ordered my copy of this & I can’t wait to see Stingray in High Definition as well as Captain Scarlet. I’m also interested about the documentary being released as well because it features re-enactments of scenes from some of the shows and a more detailed account of those early years which hasn’t really been documented before.

    It’s nice that these programs are still well remembered 55 years or so later (Four Feather Falls was the first to use the lip-synch effect & started the Supermarionation era).
