Dependable Video Discus
Is this how the Dependable Video Discus might look one day?

LOOK AROUND YOU 'DVD' - OUT ON 13th OCTOBER 2003

The makers of Look Around You have been commissioned by the BBC to produce a Dependable Video Discus ('DVD') of the series.

This is the first time this process has been applied to the market place and the technology is somewhat in its infancy, hence each 'DVD' measures approximately 70 inches in diameter and weighs around 600 kilogrammes. However it is hoped that, within time, each discus will be small enough and light enough to be carried by two men.

The 'DVD' player is often limited by regional settings. The unit pictured above will work only in Lincolnshire.


Each 'DVD', manufactured from reinforced lead, contains all the experimental data, both aural and visual, from the popular science series, Look Around You.

dvdFurthermore, each discus contains a number of additional features - a double length 20 minute module, Calcium; the programme makers' commentary; the full length pop video to the smash hit pop song 'Little Mouse' and educational and informative pages from Ceefax.

In short, it's everything the modern science student could hope for.
