Hi Michael

Almost completely certain that the Robeson Othello isn't available. The PBS
(American Masters) bio of Robeson (Paul Robeson: Here I Stand) has a very short
sequence of Robeson talking about the role, along with a short spoken word
portion of the play over theatrical stills.

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.
