There was a VHS version of this sold by the Nigerian TV authority about 15
or 20 years ago...we scored a copy and half the tapes were so badly
mastered as to be unwatchable. We tried to get replacements but never
heard back. Think you're pretty much outta luck.

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.
