WARNING for anyone buying BBC's "Life" on BluRay

Anyone in the US, that is. The original BBC version of the series Life (the sequel to Planet Earth) is coming to Blu-Ray in the U.S. It's the version narrated by David Attenborough (the US version is narrated by Oprah Winfrey ). Here's a link.

The problem is this: The UK version is encoded at 50Hz, which only a small fraction of US Blu-Ray players can handle.

So if you don't have one of these players, your only options are to 1) go without, or 2) put up with Oprah's narration. I'd rather go without, of course.
