Advisory notice:
Many of Bootworks’ performances have adult themes which are reflected in the documentation materials we sell in the online shop. Please bear this in mind when buying our products, especially if they are to be used for educational purposes.

DVD format
Our DVDs are encoded for Region 2 (UK, Europe, Japan, South Africa and Middle East). Bootworks cannot guarantee that Region 2 DVDs will work on DVD players in other countries, however, in many instances they can also be played on compatible “multi-region” DVD players (also known as “chipped” or “region-free” players).
