"EYES ON THE PRIZE" IS BACK!

20 years ago, PBS broadcast the 14 hour series "Eyes on the Prize", the
definitive documentary series covering the American civil rights
movement from 1954 to 1985. It was one of the most-watched series ever
aired on PBS. In subsequent years, the video series became one of the
best-selling products in the history of PBS.

For the last several years, "EYES ON THE PRIZE" has been
unavailable on vhs or dvd. And, it has not been shown on television for
more than ten years. Now, it is available to a new generation. It will
be broadcast, beginning in October, 2006.

And, I'm pleased to announce that "EYES ON THE PRIZE" is now available
for purchase, in either VHS or DVD.

Eyes on the Prize tells the definitive story of the Civil Rights era
from the point of view of the ordinary men and women whose extraordinary
actions launched a movement that changed the fabric of American life,
and embodied a struggle whose reverberations continue to be felt today.

SPECIAL PRE-SALE PRICE $350.

Shipping and Handling $17.00

Please place your order before September 29 to get the $25 discount. The
material will be shipped in mid-October.

You can order from me by mail,, email, phone or fax.

Thanks again, and thanks for being a PBS Video Customer

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
