I know someone who swears The Shining came out on Video 2000. They have found it on Video 8 from Germany though.
From what I can see, it seems that Video 8 was quite well supported by Warner Bros. It received every James Bond title from Dr No to Licence to Kill. Going beyond WB, I was surprised to discover that MGM released Goldeneye in widescreen for Video 8.
It may be worth asking this guy to see if he knows anything about it…
Nathan Butler does some pretty insightful youtube videos on Star Wars; From the Star Wars Home Video Library Timeline 3.2: Star Wars Films & TV Series on Home Video - among them.
^ Though he seems to mainly focus on US and Japan… he may well have some knowledge on European / UK releases too?
He also does some fairly thorough reviews on all things Star Wars too - https://www.youtube.com/user/ChronoRadio/videos
I’ve posed the question to Nathan via YouTube. Let’s see what information he has about it. 😃
