I don't know about the McGraw Hill production of Waves, but I could
suggest a substitite.
There is a series called OCEANOGRAPHY. It has 9 parts, with one
specifically called "Waves" which cites the "Waves across the
Pacific" experiment of Walter Munk. length: 25 min, 1989.

The producer of the series is BBC and Open University, but U.S.
distributor should be through Coronet/MTI.
Since I buy those in Canada from a different source than you would,
try your Coronet distributor.

Good luck.
