BLEAK HOUSE Episode1
This is the 2005 adaptation of Charles Dickens' Bleak House. The series was originally broadcast in 15 parts on BBC1 in late 2005. The 1st episode is ~50 minutes, the others are ~25 minutes.
For more info on this excellent series see: http://imdb.com/title/tt0442632/
Source is a DVB rip from a Swedish TV channel, SVT-HD (720p50). The audio is English, and there are no subs. The original audio was a 640kbps AC3 stream, however only the left & right front channels were being used. Which is why I chose to compress the audio with AAC.
My encode was made using mencoder(X264) and Nero's command line AAC tool; it has been tested with mplayer(smplayer), CoreAVC, and ffdshow.
I have included a short sample so that you can make sure this works on your PC/device (yes there are a few hardware players that support mkv/h.264).

This is my first up on thebox, so please be gentle if I messed something up.
I have the next 6 episodes, 3 hours, (so far), so if this proves to be reasonably popular I'll seed what I have.
