Copy of Wallenberg: A Hero's Story (1985) (TV)
28 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hello:

Like many others I was impressed and moved by this presentation. Though there are other productions about Wallenberg, I think this one is unmatched.

I too searched over the years in vain for a copy of the miniseries. I do not believe it is available commercially.

Nevertheless, after considerable and time consuming effort, I have been able to obtain a copy of the whole miniseries.

It was recorded on 4 CD-R disks and subsequently transferred to a single DVD disk.

The video an audio are good.

It is comparable to a good VHS recording.

Let me know if you are interested.
