In addition to the entire game, which was televised nationally on HDNet and is anamorphically enhanced for widescreen (16x9) televisions, the DVD includes 19 "Monon Memories," The Ballad of the Monon Bell music video, an extensive photo gallery, and the halftime messages from both institutions. The platter was again a collaboration between the two schools, with DePauw's Ken Owen '82 mastering the disc and Matt Bowen providing the menus and photos. Wabash's Jim Amidon created art for the packaging and contributed additional images. [Download Video: "1932 Monon Memory" - 3518kb]
