The Swan orientation film as seen at Lost: The Auction

Several DHARMA Initiative films have been featured throughout the series.

Orientation films

The DHARMA Initiative created orientation films for the occupants of the various stations throughout the Island, most of them featuring Pierre Chang under various aliases.

Though the films were originally provided to DHARMA personnel on either film reels or Betamax, the films were later transferred to at least one set of DVDs, which was in the possession of Benjamin Linus.

It has been confirmed in Access: Granted that every DHARMA station had its own orientation film, though not all of the films were shown.
