I've always wanted to see the 1978 miniseries THE AWAKENING LAND, a pioneer tale starring Elizabeth Montgomery, Hal Holbrook, and Jane Seymour.
The miniseries has just been released on DVD-R by the Warner Archive. The price is $24.95.
(Here are other recently released titles.)
I'm delighted this miniseries is now available, but a word of caution regarding the Warner Archive DVDs. My father and I split an order prior to Christmas when the Archive was having a sale. Although the DVDs I ordered play fine on my equipment, three out of four of his Archive DVDs would not play in his DVD player. He tested them on an aquaintance's equipment and they would not play on most of those DVD players either -- the exception being an inexpensive Wal-Mart DVD player.
It might be that if he exchanged them the new copies would play fine...or maybe not. I'm going to be trying them on my DVD players soon.
This erratic DVD performance -- which has never been an issue with a "burned" DVD -- cannot be accepted by the Archive going forward, or those of us who would like to support the Archive will be extremely reluctant consumers.
The Archive needs to sell DVDs which will play reliably on any DVD players. Period.
Update: All 3 DVDs play fine on my DVD player. Very strange that their performance is so erratic.
