This is a compilation of a series of short films about glass production. There are 3 versions which were perhaps preliminary tapes for the video finally selected for showing in the galleries of the Corning Museum of Glass, which opened in 1980. Each of the preliminary versions has the tape number included in the record. Tape 1 has no credits and is in a different arrangement than this.
DVD.
Some of these films are included on a 12 inch optical laser disc, "The Corning Museum of Glass, video disc no. 1" (Bib no. 103530) which Sax Communications has indicated is the better quality. The optical laser disc has been digitized.
