I'm looking for a CED disc that was done by a group called, "The Genesis 
Project". The movie was titled, "The Story of Joseph Genesis 37-50". It 
was on CED but I would buy it in video or CED whatever anyone has. The 
movie was very professional and it looks as though it was filmed some 
where in the Middle East. Speaking I assume the Hebrew language, but 
narrated word for word from the Bible book of Genesis.
I thank you very much.

Subject: The Current State of LaserDisc

Hello All:

I recently purchased an import copy of "The Phantom Menace" on LaserDisc,
and it struck me that this may be the last newly-released LD I ever get.
Ken Cranes (the premier CED seller, and later liquidator), only has seven
LD titles listed for upcoming release, and it's possible some of these may
be canceled, which has become the case with the remastered Indiana Jones

it seems the LaserDisc situation mirrors the CED state in May 1986, when
only a few additional titles were scheduled for release. A sad situation
for LD fans, but also an opportunity to pick up titles at a discount. Ken
Cranes has quite a few titles for $9.99 each including letterboxed versions
of the original Star Wars trilogy (with the George Lucas interview, but
without the 1998 enhancements to the movies). Back in the early 90's it was
common practice to join the Columbia House LD Club simply as a cheap way to
get the trilogy, as they were about $40 each at that time. one source for the Phantom Menace LD
