There is a surprisingly moving documentary on the two-disc special edition of "Blood Diamond" (Warner, $35), Edward Zwick's drama set during the civil war and chaos that ensued in Sierra Leone in the 1990s over the conflict diamond trade. In "Blood on the Stone," the film's advisor -- journalist and filmmaker Sorious Samura -- returns to his native Sierra Leone. At one point, he interviews two young men who were child soldiers about eight years ago.

" For the several millions who have waited months for its return, it is a day that has not come too soon; I am not unhappy to see it myself. With its castle and costumes and superior production values - the show is never less than lovely to look at, and most every second of it is deliciously acted, in a way you are meant to notice - it is comfort food packaged as a gourmet meal, old soap in a Tiffany container.
