“The Leap Back 2009: A 20th Anniversary Quantum Leap Convention” four-disc DVD was available through the Starlight Children’s Foundation donation page http://www.starlight.org/onlinestore/The suggested donation was $30.00 and all funds went directly to the Starlight Children’s Foundation.  On the donation page there was an option to donate even more to this wonderful charity, if you were able.


You may contact us at this email address or join our forum with additional questions. DVD sets are no longer available for purchase.  However, you can now watch all footage from the DVD set on our website, below on this page!


Your purchase of this DVD set was considered a donation to Starlight Children’s Foundation (Fed I.D. #95-3802159) and was tax-deductible. 100% of the donated amount went to the Starlight Children's foundation. Refunds or exchanges were not possible.  Below are some issues related to the set:


1.  Because the set contains nearly thirteen hours of material from the Convention, the discs are dual-layered (not double-sided).  Older DVD players and some computers may not be able to play dual-layered discs.  Please make sure you will be able to play dual-layered discs before you order.


2.  At some points throughout the DVD set you may experience a change in sound quality or picture.  This is due to original tapes being affected by the sound feed.  The faults include a break-up of the video along the right side of the screen or a green line along the bottom, but these problems do not exist on all panels.  These do not constitute a defect in the DVD set and should not affect your viewing enjoyment. 


3. ONLY Region 1 NTSC format, which is the North American Region, is available. Most European players are multi-regional, but please make sure you can play Region 1 before ordering.

Thanks to everyone who made this convention and DVD release possible! Without our committee, our special guests, our volunteers, and the wonderful fans like you, Quantum Leap would still be but a memory. Thank you - it has been a leap worth taking for all of us at The Leap Back 2009, Inc.

Due to potential copyright issues, we could not include scenes from Quantum Leap on the upcoming convention DVD release. Therefore, many videos shown at the convention that could not be included on the DVD set are being presented on our Video page instead. Be sure to visit the Video page after purchasing your DVD set!

This set is not produced with or by Universal Studios or anyone legally responsible for the Quantum Leap property. It is being produced in whole by The Leap Back 2009, Inc. for fans - by fans. All proceeds will be donated to the Starlight Children's Foundation.
