The Ipcress File was released on Blu-ray here a few weeks ago by ITV - I got mine last week. It doesn't seem to have any region coding. It plays fine on my Region A Canadian PS3. I also have the Anchor Bay/Universal Region 1 DVD so I was able to compare the two. I was watching on a Sony HS10 projector (only 768 lines, not 1080) and a Naim/Yamaha/Proac sound system. The BD looks like it was done from a much cleaner print than the DVD. It says on the packaging that it has been restored, and I have no reason to doubt that. The DVD has a murky look and colours have a brownish tinge, which is absent on the BD, which has accurate looking colours. They are quite muted, but I'm sure that was the way the film looked originally. The main problem is that the BD hardly looks any more detailed than the DVD. Perhaps this is just down to the way the film was shot. It seems to have been filmed entirely on location in London during the winter, often in natural light, so they may have been using fast film and wide appertures, which may account for its soft look. I didn't notice any signs of edge enhancement. The BD has a 640kbps DD 5.1 soundtrack (as well as 2.0), whereas the DVD is DD 2.0 192kbps. The DVD sounds OK, but the music on the BD seems to sound better with better bass extension. The 5.1 soundtack seems to have minimal use of the surround channels, and although I haven't watched it all the way through yet, they don't seem to have added any unnaturally deep bass. The only extras are a trailer and some stills - no director's commentary. Anyway, the BD looks and sounds better than the Anchor Bay DVD, but it's only marginally more detailed - don't expect to be blown away. If there is a more recent DVD of the film, transferred from the restored print, it could potentially look very similar to the BD.
