This is one of the early PDO pressed BBC Video laserdiscs. This though is like many of these early PDO BBC laserdiscs pressings & suffers from the dreaded "rot" with many now showing severe laser rot - many had the problem from "new" with as many as 50% of some PDO BBC titles being returned to retailers & dealers soon after purchase.
