For the series, I recommend one of these offers:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listing/B008YUP0DU/ref=dp_olp_new?ie=UTF8&condition=new

ATTENTION!
The cover says "38 episodes". One of my german partners says, it contains all episodes. I will ask her, if it's true and tell you here ;) (my assumption is, that they forget to mention the christmas-special on the cover.)

For the movie, you can take this:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Watership-Down-DVD-John-Hurt/dp/B00EF44ALW/ref=sr_1_1?s=dvd&ie=UTF8&qid=1428767840&sr=1-1&keywords=watership+down

Edit: With extras: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Watership-Down-Deluxe-John-Hurt/dp/B0007LPLJ2/ref=sr_1_3?s=dvd&ie=UTF8&qid=1428767978&sr=1-3&keywords=watership+down
All discs are RC2

I will definitely buy the edition 14 disc looks great !. And the movie special edition. Since I'm also seeing multiregion DVD player.
I really would like to have it on Blue Ray, but not good idea.
Just to play a 1 movie.     :hawkbit
I'm from Mexico.
Darkling thank you very much, now I feel much safer!    :silverweed





It is so beautiful!  :hickory
I love Watership Down!

No problem! :fiver

Edit: And yes: The white 14-disc-boxset looks very nice (some covers are a bit pixeled).  :pipkin

Yes, the 2005 boxset is worth getting.  Just make sure you have the right player and software as you're in a region 1 area, and these are region 2 discs.  VLC media player should work (at least the older versions in portable mode ignored region codes).


 I reviewed the tv series boxset here a long time ago: http://fhc.soopergrape.com/index.php?topic=135.0

Just an information: This yellow box-set contains also the christmas-special. So don't let yourself fool by the wrong description on the cover  :kehaar

If you do not have to worry, I chose the best package with containment of the 39 episodes, so there is no mistake. All information is in the Descripsion. Now remove the accounts and not expensive, in fact I thought that the currency would be in Euros, but no !, payment is in dollar and films are more economical than I thought.

Very soon will be in my power   :darkling  and I will be able to see in HD. It is much better to see it on you tube or download it here:

That detail is well covered, and order a multiregion player breaks codes. And if that fails my computer has opsion to change the region on my DVD. Very soon I will have the series.  :dandelion









I'd really like to buy the film Watership Down Blue Ray, but that turned this more complicated and expensive. = (

I don't own any Criterion-Disk. But they should be the best you can find.

So buy this and be happy ;)

And for the soundtracks:

TV-Series: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listing/B000055XBX/ref=sr_1_2_twi_1_aud_olp?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1428853001&sr=1-2&keywords=watership+down+soundtrack

Movie: http://www.amazon.com/Watership-Down-Angela-Morley/dp/B0000061UG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1428852958&sr=8-1&keywords=watership+down+soundtrack
It's really cheap  :p
Very fine, Blu Ray looks great and is region 1. Ready !, this in my shopping cart.  :dandelion  It's better than DVD. The soundtrack of the series has a reasonable price so maybe it away.  :fiver
And the price of the Soundtrack of the movie is ...... WTF  :bigwig2  !!! 205 dollars ?, I'm not a millionaire = s
Why is it so expensive?
I love Watership Down!
 
Everything is fine =) (?)

I'm aiming for the movie soundtrack for years - and never found it for a reasonable price.

Why is it so expensive? Simply because it's out of print. It isn't produced anymore. Same goes for many other soundtracks. I was lucky to get the series soundtrack for ~26$ (same goes e.g. for the Balto soundtrack, which I get for ~21$).

Very rarely, you find the tv series soundtrack for ~10$
