When this set was first released, PBS held it back from vendors so that all=
sales would go directly through them, but that appears to have expired. Mi=
dwest Tape lists it as having been available since last year.
Even though Midwest sometimes sells individual replacement volumes for sets=
like this if you bought the initial set from them, it doesn't look like th=
ey are doing that for Eyes on the Prize - a search on their website turned =
up the 7 disc set only.

Alas I don=92t think this goes through any vendors. I think you have to bu=
y it from them directly.

Hi All,
We purchased the Eyes on the Prize set on DVD last year but volume 1 is mis=

vendor who will? Our VHS v. 1 copy also disappeared.
