Nah, I have a feeling the dvds do not have AD.
In any case there are issues over how to find the right menu option if it
did.

Do any DVDs have AD? If they do it must be with a separate track that
includes the original sound, as AFAIK DVD players don't have the ability to
superimpose one sound track on another.

On the other hand it might have been written by the bloke who sets their

This type of quiz in general was criticized for being pretty much a lottery
as the questions are so simple, winning depends more than anything on your
entry being drawn out of the hat.

The charge (in addition to network rate) for texting the answer was heavily
criticized - but some allow postal entries, so how does that work?!

I remember a CH5 weather forecast going on about what a lovely warm
sunny day it was while it was ****ing with rain - doesn't their studio
have any windows?!


Maybe it was nice where they were.


or where the forecast was made.


Probably subcontracted to some obscure weather bureau somewhere in the
Southern hemisphere!

DVDs quite often come with things like the director's commentary, but
maybe that's a completely different audio track, containing both the
sound from the film and the commentary.

I think that's the case. The original film soundtrack is either missing or
much attenuated so you can't really hear it - which doesn't matter as I
would only use it after watching the film with the regular soundtrack first.

Not long ago, I noticed that Ch5 were following some programmes with
competitions that had no quiz element at all, just requiring details to
put in a hat.

Nevertheless, there are usually several soundtracks, sometimes quite a
lot. There seems no technical reason why one of them couldn't be a
mixed AD track with the dialogue dipped at suitable points, perhaps
with a lower level of FX and music for good measure.

I suppose the question is whether a blind person would want to pay for (or
rent) a DVD with video he can't appreciate.

It's too bad that there aren't anything like as many radio plays made as
films.

(In the 30s they broadcast plays live on US radio based on popular films -
often with the same actors as in the original films.)
