Alternate Versions

This documentary series was so popular that, several years later, in 1954, the footage from the 26 episodes was edited, and a 35mm negative was prepared, for a theatrical release in a 98 minute version. During the next decade this version was released in many foreign countries, including some of the former Axis powers. This gave audiences the chance to see the footage on a large screen and hear Richard Rodger's famous symphonic score in higher fidelity from the large theater speakers. See more »

Easily the finest TV documentary ever
22 August 2000 | by tomhullSee all my reviews

I have had the video of all 26 episodes for several years now. I have seen other WWII documentaries on television, but where Victory at Sea stands heads and shoulders above them is in Richard Rodgers' music and, most importantly, Leonard Graves' incomparable narration. I just cannot imagine anyone else narrating that documentary. My favorite part is the last half of the final episode, when the men come home. That's what it was all about in the first place.
