And it's "Region 2" for Europe, we need "Region 1" or region-free. If it was region-free then our DVD players here might have a chance at playing the European PAL format. I read online that modern players are most often shipped with the ability to read both to simplify production of players made in China.



Or you can get a Universal "All Region" DVD or Blu-Ray Player (I have an Oppo)
these are usually Players made for overseas markets that can play PAL & NTSC format disks.

On the subject of all region DVD players...

Apparently most ARE all region, but are programmed for the area they're being shipped to before leaving the factory. Google DVD hack. There are sites dedicated to finding out the hack codes for DVD players. Usually just 4 or 5 numbers you punch in once you know the "secret" (some button combination to bring up the programming menu). I got one years ago for 20 bucks, hacked it, and have enjoyed many a euro-trash flick not released in the U.S. Aloha

I came home from Paris with both the Tki Pop book and DVD. The DVD played perfectly on both my home PC and blu-ray player attached to my TV. On the back of the DVD case it does say: DVD 9 - Couleur - NTSC - Audio :Stereo

I really enjoyed this DVD. It has a casual, warm intimate feel to it, as it is mostly footage and interviews of long-time tiki people, mostly filmed in their homes, and little if any footage of the larger Hukilau / Tiki Oasis type events. Among those who appear are Bosko, Otto, Chris Garland, Martin Cate, Sven, The Fisherman, Leroy and Bob, Humuhumu, Bamboo Ben, and Notch. And also the granddaughter of Trader Vics, who showed off a drink recipe flip-file from a 1958 Cuba Trader Vics, which I was quite impressed with

It is not a document of the museum exhibit, but there is plenty of eye candy. Sylvain Bergere and Nathalie Levy-Lang did a good job in producing and making this film, which runs about 52 minutes (France Television was a partner with this) There is a bonus short film, Beachbum Berry's early 1991 short film 'The Secret of Easter Island' The DVD allows you to switch between the English/French language.

Definitely a welcome addition to your Tiki DVD collection.

So there IS an NTSC version. That's good to know. When you purchased it, you had a choice between NTSC and PAL?

This true, you may already have an all region DVD or Bluray player
you may just need to unlock it to play those disks
here is the website to find out those models & codes (note: not all these players can play PAL disks though)

There's some fantastic stuff in there. I wonder:
* How many of the items in the exhibit are covered in the book?
* Who owns those items? Sven? The museum? A lot of different people?

The book weighs over six pounds (2.8 kg) with 383 pages. It's all in there and more! And as far as who owns what, I guess you all know who you are many items listed as in private collection.

That must have been a monumental task organizing the collection and transportation of items from so many different people. I can only imagine how much work went into it. Thanks to Sven for putting it together, as well as everyone who was involved in loaning items it other capacities. I'm sad I won't get to see the exhibit, but I'll be happy when my book arrives.
