Pride and Prejudice anniversary DVD features

Thanks to Meng from EhleNews for this. Amazon is allowing pre-orders for the 10th anniversary limited edition collector's set of Pride and Prejudice, due on September 26th. Unlike the UK anniversary DVD, it looks like this will actually feature different content from the old special edition version (the one with a making of feature sans Colin Firth or Jennifer Ehle). And yay, remastering!

DVD Features:

* Available Audio Tracks: English (Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo)
* 10th Anniversary Limited Edition Collector's Set
* Gold embossed green fabric slipcase
* Newly remastered widescreen print
* Bonus Disc Features:
* Jane Austen BIOGRAPHY episode
* An exclusive new retrospective documentary about the making of the classic series
* A 120 page deluxe companion book The Making Of Pride and Prejudice
* Interviews with cast and crew

Wouldn't get my hopes up about new content with Ms Ehle, cos the "new retrospective documentary" might be the same as the Drama Connections one which you can view online. Hopefully, they might include the extended cast interviews that were cut out on the old DVD. We've posted before a video of her being interviewed about Lizzy. If you have access to the Perspectives on Pride and Prejudice educational set (try your uni/state/school library), that has the full footage with her.

Oh look, turns out AustenBlog picked this up two months ago. Oopsies. Check out the first comment.
