Macca at the Roundhouse

I recently spent a day in Copenhagen, Denmark and came across a DVD from McCartney's 2007 concert at the Roundhouse in a high street music store. It was rather cheap, so I bought a copy. After all, I was at the concert. Back home in Oslo, Norway, I discovered the same DVD in a high street shop there. Today, I came across the same DVD at Amazon in the UK.

Product Description:

Disc format: DVD-5
Sound: Dolby Digital 2.0
Signal: NTSC
Picture ratio: 16:9
Regioncode: ALL
Total Running Time: 1:29:55

Recorded live at Roundhouse, Camden, London, UK, October 25, 2007.

The quality is okay, I guess, but I remember that the images I saw on TV after the concert were great. Conversion from PAL to NTSC probably is to blame. The company responsible for this release seem to have superimposed a logo in the upper corner on the entire concert.

The annoying logo

I suspect that the "BBC Films + DVD" logo is what has has mislead shop owners into thinking this is a legitimate release. The abscence of the artist's name and title of the film on the spine should clue them on to the fact that this is illegitimate, though.
