That’s a lot of bits

I’ve just been analysing the new Blu-ray release of the 1958 musical Gigi. This gets Dolby TrueHD 5.1 channel sound for the English track, backed up with Dolby Digital 5.1 at 640kbps. Foreign language audio is provided in French, German, Italian and two varieties of Spanish (Castellano and Español). All of those are in mono, Dolby Digital 1.0, no less, with a bitrate of 192kbps. Except for Español, anyway. It, also, is in Dolby Digital 1.0, but its bitrate is a massive 640kbps! I suspect someone may have pressed the wrong button in the mastering suite.
