This wildly popular television miniseries, based on Colleen McCullough's best selling novel of enduring, but forbidden, love, has been given a solid presentation for its release on DVD. The Thorn Birds has been transferred to disc in its original full-frame aspect ratio of 1.33:1. The audio has been mastered in Dolby Digital Mono. The dialogue is in English, while optional subtitles in English, Spanish, and French have been included. As a bonus, this edition also features "The Thorn Birds: Old Friends, New Stories," a newly commissioned documentary on the making of the series.
