Very few (if any) of the older things. Fortunately, the redoubtable Dan
Bickley has started his own company which is distributing the newer best
sellers: http://www.berkeleymedia.com/

From http://ucmedia.berkeley.edu/default.html:

Dear Patrons,

UC Berkeley Extension is permanently closing its Media Distribution unit as of June 30, 2005.

As the film and video titles distributed by the Center for Media and Independent Learning find new distributors, we hope to provide contact information for the new distributors here on this Web site. Please check the title you are looking for by clicking on it in our Catalog Index. New distribution information, if available, will be listed immediately before the title information on the page you are taken to.

Thanks to everyone for all your support over the many years since our founding in 1915.

Sincerely,
CMIL Staff

 

 

Sodoes anyone have any guesses as to the percentage of titles that will find other distribution? 

 

Thanks,
