Gale vs. Bowker video directory

Greetings:

Our library currently subscribes to Gale's "Video Source Book" and have been pretty satisfied with this resource. I have recently been reading more about "Bowker's Complete Video Directory" and have been wondering how this compares with the former and if they are redundant.

Does anyone have experience with either Bowker's product alone or both Bowker's and Gale's titles and have a sense of how they compare with each other? If I get a lot of responses to this query I would be happy to share the results on the listserv.

Thanks for any help anyone can offer.
