Yes I have, my son got hold of a copy — I’m not sure it was legal so I didn’t ask, and being an ex computer pro I was fascinated by what I was seeing and spend more time working out how they’d done it than paying attention to the content. Matching the sounds to the pictures wouldn’t be too difficult (I could do that at home,) and the colour conversion would be time consuming but not technically very difficult, but resampling the old, low quality film to get modern video quality clarity, and compensating for the speed variation of hand cranked cameras must have been a nightmare. But I’m coming over all nerdy again.
It gives an important insight into what live and the constant presence of death was like for them though, the humour they used to cope with that threat, and the conditions they endured. It deserves to become a part of the history curriculum in schools.
