DiscoVision actually chapter encoded this educational program at sections of the program. They are not listed on the
jacket anywhere, but here they are:
While it wasn't entirely necessary to split Lion between two sides, to run it out full length would have taken
side 1 just shy of 30 minutes in length. This is well beyond the killer 29 minute mark which kills all CAV DiscoVision
discs. You'd think they learned their lesson after mastering the The World at War series they way they did.

The video transfer is very good from a very used 16mm print. Sharpness and contrast are well balanced and the program
is a joy to watch. There is no audio program of any kind, just the sounds of the animals in their natural
surroundings. Disc replication is very clean with very little speckling and only the occasional dropout.
Silent Safari was never reissued on LaserDisc.
