The actor who spoke the commentary for Universe, and voiced HAL, is
Douglas Rain.  The other common element is Wally Gentleman, who is
credited on Universe and who was one of the principal special effects
folk on 2001.  I don't have the reference immediately to hand, but
Gentleman was interviewed about 2001 in an early issue of Take One.
