Videos & DVDs featuring Charles Dance - Notes

Please check format compatibility with your system before ordering any item, or you may wind up with a video or DVD you can't view. Read the DVD and Video FAQ to find out more.

Please be aware that there can be editing differences between NTSC and PAL formats of the same video title. For example, the NTSC version of "Rebecca" is 15 minutes shorter than the PAL version.

Yes, PBS cut 15 rather illuminating minutes from their airing of "Rebecca", and the American video follows suit! See a list of what was cut here.

In such a case you might prefer to purchase the PAL video and have it converted; it costs more, but at least you'll see the entire programme as it was meant to be seen.

Format isn't the only difference...
