I'd meant to add to the discussion a few days ago...

I think all of us subscribers should push really hard on PBS to get the
video materials moved to DVD. This would vastly simplify and speed up
jumping to each and any video segment in a program.

I'm aware there may be copyright issues in the way of PBS doing this, but I
feel they should resolve those issues and get on with moving the videos to

Streaming format(s) could be useful as well...
