How our DVDs and DVD-Rs Differ
Customers who purchase programs in the NG DVD-R Library will receive a non-interactive, play only disc. There is no chaptering information on these DVDs, but there are chapter marks approximately every five minutes, which make it easy to fast forward through a program. The DVD-R format provides the digital video and audio quality you expect from all of our DVDs.
NOTE: The NG DVD-R titles are not closed-captioned. We apologize for any inconvenience this limitation may cause.
Charlie Andrews is THE KNIGHT and there are still "black knights" out there to vanquish! This sport is demolition derby on horseback fun to watch and the hits are hard.Makes "Full Metal Jousting" look like a bunch of nancy boys!
