I just received a request from a faculty member for a this product:

Robbe-Grillet on DVD
A double DVD, released jointly by Les Impressions Nouvelles and IMEC,
provides a much fuller version of these important interviews, with a total
running time of about 6 hrs 15 mins. It will be of particular value to
schools, colleges and universities, resource centres, international
cultural centres and lovers of literature in general. This interactive DVD
will enable viewers to explore Alain Robbe-Grillet's life and work
according to their individual interests. The accompanying booklet contains
details of all the topics available for search.

The format is only described as Digital Betacam DVD

Since this is produced in France, does anyone know if standard DVD players
and workstations with DVD drives can be used, or is DVDs produced in Europe
different (such as video cassettes and PAL or Secam formats).

Since my primary function is selection of videos and DVds I'm pretty
ignorant regarding technical aspects. Thanks so much for any information.
