I received a call about this title from a fellow video-libber. Since there
seems to be a renewed interest in WAYS OF SEEING I'm forwarding this thread
originally sent by Peter Delin with the ordering info ( I couldn't believe I
still had this in my e-mail archive!)

As I indicated previously, I ordered it through our jobber, Ambassador
(http://www.absbook.com/). We purchased it for $500 at the time (2/03)

Hope this helps!

P.S. Once again, THANKS, PETER!

As I see in the HERMES-Database (we are interested in this title too)
price in 1996 was 160 British Pounds for the whole series. You might
contact the BBC in London to verify if this title is really so expensive
(perhaps because of the conversion from PAL to NTSC?).
