Judie:

We have been using this series as a distance education course in our
Sociology and Anthropology Department for over 5 years now. It's a very
popular course. Last year a number of episodes were revised including
LANGUAGE AND COMMUNICATION and RELIGION AND MAGIC. If you're a comparison
shopper the prices in Canada are as follows: $25CDN/episode(tape) for home
use only and $45CDN/episode(tape) for public performance rights which allow
us to screen them in classrooms. Broadcast rights are negotiated separately.

The U.S. distributor should be Coast Telecourses in Fountain Valley,
California. 800-547-4748 or 714-241-6109
