What are the clip properties and what are your Sequence settings? Post a screen shot of both.

Of course there is always the possiblity that these people have never looked at themselves in a mirror so if the video makes them ' look like a group of dwarves.... small and fat' - it is only a truthful rendering of the situation.

We also need the Sequence Properties that this Nested Sequence is working in.
Right click the Sequence Icon in the Browser and select Item Properties.
Post a screen shot.

Clips or Nested Sequences must match the Master Sequence that they go into otherwise problems occur.
In your case if an Anamorpic Sequence or clip are mis-matched then this distortion of the Aspect Ratio occurs and people can look like dwarfs or visa versa.
It's a matter of determining where the mis-match is and then correcting it.
That's why we need to know the specifics of clips and Sequence.
From what has been posted there does not seem to be a problem.
You may have to look further back to the clips that went into the Nested Sequence.
Unless the people are dwarfs then there will be a mis-match somewhere.

The mothers bride has returned my email. It would appear her TV settings were set to widescreen, and after changing these to 4:3 aspect ratio everything is fine.
I have learned something new though in talking to you, so I will keep an eye out for the stuff you are mentioning.

Thanks for the info on the final outcome.
It's so simple it's easily overlooked.
I've found it wise to check the DVD player settings as well as many can be set to display 4:3 or 16:9.
