VHS series

( This is a spin-off from the earlier thread:
https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/video-vhs-magazines )

I came across with a 6-part series that was originally (and officially) released on VHS in 1991. Two VHS-volumes (tapes) with 3 episodes each. I believe it was mainly aimed at schools/students/libraries/etc.

The series was then released on national TV in 1995, and on DVD in 2004.

Obviously the ideal way would be to add this like a TV series (it has one "season", every episode has its own title/credits etc), but I guess that's not currently possible since it wasn't originally shown on TV. "Video series" is not one of the options (there are "TV series" and "web series")? Any way to get around this?

Will gave me the following info on the earlier thread, but this would mean that I would have to add very long titles (the basic title of the series is quite long and then there are long episode titles with "Part 1", "Part 2", etc):

 Thanks for your message. We would require each volume to be added as a separate video title then you could add a movie connection to link them. Please see this guide for more information about movie connections - https://contribute.imdb.com/updates/guide/movie_links
Thanks again.

Hi Eboy -

This is an interesting query, I believe that the information Will previously provided to you still applies, however, I will check with our title editors to confirm.  Once I get a confirmation on the listing process from them for this scenario, I will update you here.

Hi Eboy -

Apologies for the long delay in replying here, I have confirmed with our editors that the information Will  previously provided still stands - we will list the individual video titles for the volumes. Note that we will not list titles for each episode though, just the 2 volumes.

Also, if you wish to distinguish the individual filmography items related to each episode on the video title,  then you could add this info to the credit attribute field.
