Hello everyone,

We don't have that many tools to work with, so I'm hoping the list
members can help me.

I have a request from a professor for two different videos. The first
was a Walt Disney Company/Green Light Pictures production from the pages
of "Discover Magazine" in 1993. The executive producer was Les Guthman,
and it was produced by Performance Post, Inc. It is about Denise
Schmandt-Besserat, an archaeologist at U. of Texas, Austin, and her
discovery of the precursors of written script in Mesopotamian clay
tokens.

The second request is extremely sketchy. All I can tell you is that it
is a film made in France from the early camera footage of a French
consul around 1895.

Sorry I can't be more specific. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

With thanks,

Kevin Furniss
