Rick: I've just been on a project, looking at multicultural issues,
so I've just looked at Crosstalk. it was re-done in 1991, using
some of the 1970's footage, and a more recent panel discussion.
What this had was examples of voice pattern/intonation - I
thought that this was unusual, and discussed E. Indian and Asian
ethnic vocal patterns. The length was a bit long, and the 70's
footage really is dated - color is reddish, image is fuzzy, but
the content is unique. The narrator does mention they are using
footage from an earlier production.

There is a companion series, called Crosstalk at Work, Part 1 -
Recruitment Interviewing across Cultures is 25 min. and Part 2-
Performance Appraising across Cultures, is 28 min. Both are
1991.
This series has culture-specific behaviors related to the business
world esp. job-seekers and job-interviewers. Racial groups are
mainly Asian - the British reality. This series uses some of
the same footage and summaries as the 50 min. one.

All are BBC productions.
Hope this helps,

Susan
