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

I've read online that the Attenborough version inexplicably features higher quality 1080p video, as opposed to the 1080i video of the Orca version. Yes, most people won't be able to tell the difference but why there's a video quality difference is beyond my comprehension--it's not like Orca is taking up more space. Er, Orca's narration, that is.
Discovery broadcasts in 1080i so nearly all of its HD content delivers in this format. The Oprah-narrated masters for "Life" are 1080i so what's why the Blu-ray discs are in that format.
