The DVD 's have to suit players in Australia just like VHS tapes need to be in PAL form. It makes purchasing these things difficult and/or expensive with exchange rates etc.

digital? video? disk? or ?????
and, incidentally and for future use, where, if one were wanting to seek an authoritative/official meaning for such a contemp. technical term and who didn't have knowledgable friends in powerful places such as balletalert, could one go to look this up?
