This is my first time posting to videolib. For a couple months now, I've
been watching quietly on the sidelines, and as a new librarian responsible
for a media collection, it has been quite helpful.

Anyway, now is my chance to speak up: I have a question. A faculty here
requested the "Relative Value" series distributed by BBC Learning Studies.
Titles included in the series are, "The Agony and The Ecstasy," "The
Last Picture Show," "Altered States," "The Sweet Smell of Success," "Keeping up
with the Medicis," and "The Colour of Money." Because many of these
titles (along with the title of series) are the same as feature films,
they can be difficult to track down. I did find on OCLC that one library owns
the series, the University of Hong Kong Library. Does anyone know any place
closer than Hong Kong from which I might rent or borrow a copy of this series?
The faculty would like to preview it before we purchase it. I have already
checked with BBC Learning Studies, and the won't let the videos go out
for preview.
