Subject: Re: [Videolib] INSIGHT MEDIA VIDEOS ON GEOGRAPHY
In a way this is like asking if the books Amazon sells are good.
My understanding is that Insight is not a producer, but a distributor of
selected titles. Or more acturately, a re-distributor, since many of
the titles Insight carries are also distributed by other companies.
It's hard to tell much more since Insight's mailings describe the videos
they distribute, but don't provide the name of the producer, date, and
other pertinent information.
While we have purchased from Insight in the past, generally we try to
find the content from the original producer, often at a lower price.
I'd be interested in hearing others' perceptions of the Insight product
