I just have a scrap of information which may be of help to you on your
search for rights for the first item.

Robert Saudek was the producer of the classic television series,
Omnibus, hosted by Alistair Cooke. I am assuming that your Robert
Saudek is the same Robert Saudek, who was involved in interpreting the
arts visually in the Omnibus series. He later went on to head the
former Museum of Broadcasting in NYC where I worked in the late 1970's.
The last I heard was that he was the head of the Division of Motion
Pictures and Film at the Library of Congress (LC). They may be able to
give you a lead.

Good luck!

My library is weeding out all of our 3/4inch tapes and my job is to
track down the copyright owners and get permission to make 1/2inch
transfer for the titles we want to keep. There are a few titled I
haven't been able to find anything on. If anybody has any info it
help a lot. Thanks.

Symphony No. 6 in F Major, Op. 68
dir: Robert Saudek (1970)

American Peoples Historical Society (1979)

Lighting and Staging Techniques
Imero Fiorentino Associates, Inc (1980)

Also- We have a film called Future Shock(1972) which Metromedia
Producers Corp. was responsible for. I believe FOX took over
but when I contacted them I was told they do not hold the rights to
film. Any ideas where else to look. Thanks again.
