Eunuchs: India's Third Gender was sold in the US by BBC Lionheart back in
1991 when we bought a copy. At the time I remember expending a fair amount
of effort finding it and then actually obtaining it. Unfortunately it
appears that we are one of only two libraries in the country that have a
copy and given its rarity and the fact it is used on a regular basis here I
can't loan it.

I found this address for BBC Lionheart on the web. Don't know if they're
still there.

As an alternative, Third World Newsreel may still carry Jareena: Portrait
of a Hidja

Hello everyone,
I wonder if anyone can provide information on obtaining these
titles, preferably on VHS video:

"Eunuchs- India's Third Gender" by Michael
Yorke, 1991,
apparently through BBC-Under the Sun

"The Salt Mines" by Susanna Aikin
and Carlos
Aparicio, 1990

"Two Spirit People: The Berdache Tradition in Native American
Culture" by Levy, Beauchemin and Vogel, 1991, apparently
through Gender on a Stick

Productions (sorry, I don't know them)

Thank you, I'm very grateful for any information you can
provide.
