Podcast #87 – Film Preservation

This week we discuss the current state of Film Restoration, and some of the “improvments” that are being done to films when they are being restored.  We go into some of the changes that we have seen so far in DVD/Blu-Ray re-mastering of films/shows; including Star Wars, Star Trek, James Bond, and of course Doctor Who.

Some of the articles we reference can be found here:

He also recommends Her Universe for those of you looking to buy a geeky gift for your significant other.
