I just watched this BBC mini series, and I was really impressed with it. It is obviously more detailed than the movie and cinematography is really superb. Apparently, they shot it with Eclair NPR and Zeiss lenses. I am curious however, why didn't they shoot it on Arri SRs since it was shot in 1979?

Weren't NPR cameras for hobby/amateur use back then? A major BBC tv mini series being shot on NPRs is pretty cool however.

The BBC also used BLs for news and plenty of their 16mm. dramas were shot with them. An NPR with 12-120 cost about $15,000 in 1975, so no, it wasn't amateur kit. No reason to buy new kit- Arris last for years.
