Additional comments DVD-Video featuring an interesting documentary from 1979, taken from German television. It tells the story of Dire Straits until 1979, spoken in German. There is a small error in the DVD menu as the show is actually titled Bavarian and not Babarian. Nice footage from the early days in Deptford and in the USA. Also some songs live from the Roxy in Los Angeles 1979 and interview with Mark Knopfler. The original documentary originally lasted a bit longer, on this DVD it ends pretty abrupt. The complete documentary can be found on the DVD TV report 1979 - 1993. Total playing is time is about 35 minutes. Pretty good picture and sound quality.
