"This DVD is advertised as being in NTSC format but the copy I received is in PAL (European) format. Fortunately It will play on a PC using Windows Media Player. Since this was for my wife and she was content to watch it on the computer I didn't return it. I like the Seekers very much and Judith Durham has one of the all time great voices in POP music. The DVD once we were able to watch it is a loose reenactment of the groups career and all of their top songs are there in either studio or live performances and sometimes both. Audio and video are good. Other than format issues this DVD is well worth owning.
I recently discovered that I can play PAL format DVDs on my new LG-BD570 Blue Ray Player. Works great. Yippee."
A look back (from the top)

"This one-hour DVD consists of performances of 17 familiar Seekers songs stitched together by a thumbnail sketch of the group's rise to fame. Filmed for Australian TV in January 1968, it is a lighthearted look back at how it all came to be, with amusing "re-enactments" of some of the key moments. It is neither a detailed autobiography nor a serious documentary.
The DVD is in PAL format, rather than the NTSC format used by TVs in the US. However, I had no problems playing the DVD on a 7-yr old WIndows computer using the equally ancient PowerDVD 3.0 software. Considering that the material was filmed in 1968, the sound and video quality are very good.
For any serious fan of the Seekers, this is well worth having. You'll get a fine collection of music videos of the group performing at their very peak, as well as intriguing glimpses of their individual personalities. And if you are a devoted Judith Durham fan, this is a must-buy."
