Although this series had only 26 episodes that ran from 1952 to 1953, the score by Richard Rodgers (with Robert Russell Bennett conducting the NBC Symphony Orchestra) was such a hit that recordings of it have been almost continually available. Over a half century after the original broadcast, the score is available in a modern stereo recording digitally remastered on compact discs. However, on the album the orchestra is the RCA Victor Symphony Orchestra. See more »
Victory At Sea is a great television series about World War 2 produced by NBC in conjunction with the U.S. Navy. Most of the footage was shot by Navy cameramen. NBC edited the footage, added a host and the musical score by Richard Rogers. That was reality TV in the early days of television production. While this a comprehensive and educational series and should be watched, viewers should be aware the version released by A&E on DVD is substandard as the sound level constantly fluctuates. The version released by Studio 1 has much better sound but the episodes are abridged and the distributor does not warn consumers. But, for the price buy the Studio 1 release. It is much more satisfying than the A&E version. Buyer beware.
