    Does anyone know how we could buy a copy of :

    Title: Black man's land <videorecording> : images of
    colonialism and independence in Kenya / written by David
    produced and directed by Anthony Howarth and David Koff.

    Published: <England> : Anthony David Productions ; Van Nuys, CA :
    Distributed by the Bellwether Group, <197-?>
    Description: 3 videocassettes (VHS) (52 min. ea.) : sd., col. with
    b&w sequences ; 1/2 in.
    Notes: Documentary.
    Cast: Musindo Mwinyipembe.
    Credits: Photography, Bruce Parsons, Mohinder Dhillon, Les
    Pace; music, Peter Frampton.

    It was broadcast on PBS in 1979.

    We've had an urgent request for the film for a class presentation.
    We called the PBS archives, and were told that it takes about 48
    hours to get a reply. Boston University has a copy (that's BU's record
    above), but it's non-circulating. Does anyone have any other

    Thanks very much!
