But based on a true story, a lot of Commonwealth soldiers toiled in those conditions on the Burma Railway. That particular story is just universally identifiable so makes sense they would use it as a basis.I found the british-history a bit overdone considering that much of the film "A Bridge over River Kwai" was mostly fictional.
Most of us have computers with not alot of HD spaces.To all those with problems with the SD version....I have to ask, why are you even getting the SD version?! Don't you want to see all the beautiful scenery from Burma and Thailand in HD and not fuzzy, globby, smudgey, 1990's SD?! I don't get why you'd even get the SD version of a show like this at all.
