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. Midwest 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 they are doing that for Eyes on the Prize - a search on their =
website turned up the 7 disc set only.

Amazon to alter plastic packaging

November 4, 2008

To reduce battles with hard plastic that encase a new gadget or toy,
Amazon.com Inc.
=
<http://www.chicagotribune.com/topic/economy-business-finance/amazon.com
-inc.-ORCRP000672.topic> said Monday that it is working with
manufacturers to make the products it sells easier to open and more
environmentally friendly.

Initially, the online retailer is altering the packaging in the U.S. =
on
19 top-selling products from a variety of manufacturers, including
toymaker Mattel Inc.
=
<http://www.chicagotribune.com/topic/economy-business-finance/mattel-inc
.-ORCRP009532.topic> , softwaremaker Microsoft Corp.
=
<http://www.chicagotribune.com/topic/economy-business-finance/microsoft-
corp.-ORCRP009947.topic> and flash memory card-maker Transcend
Information Inc. Starting in 2009, Amazon's effort will include its
international sites as well.

Amazon said it is looking first at plastic "clamshell" cases and items
that are held in place with plastic-covered wire ties, which are often
used with toys.
