We all know the NTSC last discs, but does anyone know the UK's last discs?

I saw a eBay listing for a copy of small solders that said it was the last pal disc issued? Not sure if that's true or not though

It is listed as the highest catalogue number in the PLFEB 37 series
http://www.lddb.com/search.php?referenc ... c&start=25

So it probably is the last 'PAL UK movie' release however it certainly isn't the last PAL worldwide release or last PAL non movie release. PAL titles were released throughout Europe, Australia and even occasionally parts of Asia (Malaysia, Singapore etc).

The last PAL French movie may be this one released in 2000 : Ennemi d'état (1998) [96-0606/22]

Sliding Doors was one of the last releases. June(or was it May?) 1999 was the last time Pioneer released an LD in the UK. They had releases due for the whole of 1999 but everything after June got cancelled. This is off the top of my head.

Armageddon, Deep Impact, Halloween: H20, Small Soldiers and Sliding Doors released in 1999. These were probably the last releases by Pioneer LDCE. According to the database there was a Laser Juke: Music Compilation Series (2001) 8" released in 2001 in NTSC which is weird since the UK was PAL.

I'm not sure there were ever any PAL laserdisc jukeboxes, think the ones sold in the UK were still NTSC. But I'm sure someone else will actually know, I'm just guessing.

Pioneer & Diamond Time LaserJuke 8inch are all NTSC [released until 2002] and majority were rented not sold, due to extreme high selling price of £150 a disc [only for sale if you owned a registered LaserJuke machine].
In France there were 12inch comparable discs released made by MPO in PAL format until 2001, these discs were not for sale.
