Actually I think this was called "Fires of Kuwait" and was originally
produced as an IMAX film.
It was available on vhs and laserdisc after its initial release in '92 but
I don't see it listed in any of the current print or on-line soures.
Facets does list it on their on-line catalog, but Ken Crane does not.
