Greetings, Vidlibbers--

I'm looking for info on a 1979 NBC miniseries, 'Backstairs at the White
House.' I know it's not available on video, according to the
internet movie database. One of our patrons knows someone who knows an
NBC exec, tho, and says that it's difficult to
get any release information plans out of NBC. "Stonewalled" was the term
used. Does anyone know any scuttlebut about
this? Is someone holding out for royalties? Or is the movie just as racist
and classist as it sounds and NBC is just avoiding
negative press?
