    The Blues on PBS

    Being this series is going to run on PBS this week , and the DVD Set (7 discs) comes out next week, I'm wondering if anyone has more info?

    The specs are hard to come by. The series will be broadcast in widescreen (unfortunately no HD although originally planned), and I have no idea what format the sound will be.

    This is a must have for me, since I'm such a big Blues fan. I am tempted to save it off PBS-HD, but my local PBS station multicasts so the quality is iffy.

    If the DVD can offer me something more I'd surely spring for it.

    Other than PBS's store, this is the only info I've been able to find:

    Probably best to watch it on TV first and then if it's good/great - which is highly likely - then get the DVD set at as low a price as possible, those PBS boxed sets can be pretty costly.

    Sure to be a helluva series, though.

    I'm really looking forward to Scorsese's documentary on Bob Dylan's career up until 1968, featuring new interview with the Big D himself. That's gonna be a real piece oh work.

    Are any of the other PBS DVDs Widescreen if the original broadcast was?

    There's nothing from stoping me from making my own DVD as I can save the ATSC stream. I'm just wondering if they'll offer me something more. (Or do a better job). The quality of PBS' 480p broadcasts vary widely.

    I saw the CD box set at Best Buy but didn't check the price.
