Dear Judy - I found 3 of your titles through PBS. The web site didn't
indicate if the titles came with public performance rights or not, but from
the prices listed, they probably don't.

Language of Life - 8 videos, 8 hours A1431-WWV7 - $149.95
Triumph of the Nerds - 3 videos, 2 1/2 hours - 49.95 - I also remember
someone mentioning a while back that Ambrose Video has this title with
public performance rights, but the cost is a couple hundred dollars, or so.
George Washington: The Man Who Wouldn't Be King - 1 video, 1 hour - $19.95

You might check with Baker and Taylor for these titles if you are not
concerned with public performance rights, although many videos do come with
these through B&T.

Hope this helps. Good luck.
