Subtitle this 1-A VARIETY PACK of steam. That's what's here, with clear sharp video and crystal clear audio-yes it's just 2 channels, but it can still test your speakers. Really the program provides the history of the SR/NS steam programs, with emphasis on the 21st CENTURY program. A quality, very well done production that belongs in every steam lover's collection.
