Pressing Notes

The transfer for this title is what you would expect from a typically well used 16mm print taken from the high school library. The video image is quite sharp and clear. Audio is typical, sounding overdriven and unremarkable.

Shipping records indicate that 68 copies had exited the warehouse by mid 1979. There are a handful of copies known to exist.

Disc labels do not indicate a side number - they simply have the name of the program on that side. The catalog number listed on the label is 64-002A and 64-002B respectively. While the packaging indicates that "The Solar System" is the first title, it is actually on the "B" side of the disc.

Release History

The Solar System / The Universe: Beyond the Solar System was never reissued on LaserDisc.
