I'm impressed you were able to get a copy. VHS or overseas DVD?

VHS. The quality of the overseas DVD is apparently even worse than that of the VHS.

It's now out on DVD as part of a package with the Blue-Ray version. I liked it, despite Diana Wynyard emoting to the camera now and then. I was more impressed by Una O'Connor's supporting role. My three favorite scenes are the crowd scene at the sending of Robert and Alf off to the Boer War (presaging the later sending of Joe off to World War I), Edward and Edith on ship talking about the future of their romance, and Jane walking through the crowd of celebrants on November 11, 1918.
