The Director at my library has asked me to research if there are any
film series available to be broadcast on our city's cable TV network,
especially those that would enhance the library's mission statement: "A
literate populace and the freedom to read are essential to democracy.
The Virginia Beach Public Library provides free access to accurate and
current information and materials to all individuals and promotes
reading as a critical life skill."

I understand that broadcast rights are different from public performance
rights, but I do have questions about how to proceed.

Are broadcast rights negotiated individually? What kinds of costs might
we expect?

Are there programs available that are appropriate for a municipal cable
TV network? We are interested in a wide range of topics from children's
programming to family history.

Any wisdom you can share would be greatly appreciated.

If you reply to the list, please also copy me personally.

Thanks for your help.
