0000Vestron.jpg (85698 bytes) 1986 Vestron                                     Go Down To Video Ephemera

Movie titles had been produced for more than a decade for TV and educational use when the first titles were released for home or other use. These were for VCR players and done in conjunction with Vestron Video.  This title is one of the first in 1986.  The Vestron boxes (all but one that I have found) had the Collector's Edition circle on them.  Releases were both Beta and then VHS.  A concerted effort was made to sell direct, sell for rentals, and move a volume of these titles. (see posters below).

This title (and unique box presentation) celebrate the over 25 years that the National Geographic Society had done Television Specials. On the back, it lists the 19 titles covered.  The most popular television specials were the ones that made it into tapes for release to the retail market.  In fact, Jane Goodall's "Among the Wild Chimpanzees" was covered in this video, but was the second TV special announced with the "red stripe" on a magazine cover (Dec. 1965).  The first was "Everest" on the Sept. 1965 issue and is not mentioned on this video box.
