The video-boom is here - sales of video-cassette recorders are rocketing. But three giant electronics companies are crossing their collective corporate fingers about a brand new video-player which they've risked millions in developing.
The videodisc player will soon be in the shops, with top feature films - and much else - available on shiny discs for much less than the current price of a video-cassette. But unlike the video-cassette recorder, you can't record on to a disc - so they're no good if you just want to watch Play for Today tomorrow.
Kieran Prendiville and Michael Rodd give us a taste of what the videodisc can do-and talk to the three companies who have spent fortunes in an attempt to win the lion's share of a market that just might not exist.
