17279TV & Video: slightly OT
- Feb 28, 2003In my job I get listings of programming, intended for educators, that is
commercial free. For your possible interest and videotaping experience,
here are some titles vaguely related to our topic and/or hobby. Insert
smiley faces to my comments as your desires and biases necessitate.
The Crossing: Captain Crunch rides again as George Washington crossing the
Delaware. March 11, 8:00am Eastern and 2:00pm Eastern. Also March 23 at
1:00pm Eastern. Arts and Entertainment Channel (A&E).

Not commercial free -- Napoleon. An A&E original movie premiere. April
8th, 8pm Eastern. Don't know anything about it so can't comment whether
it's movie drivel or something of substance. Stars Christian Clavier,
Isabella Rosselline, Gerard Depardieu and John Malkovich. "He was a master
of war and peace. His struggle was with love." (Their words, not mine, but
probably indicative of drivel.)
Check local listings for variations, may not be available in all viewing
areas. Since it's for educator use, there are copyright limitations ranging
from "fair use" to two years. I leave it to you to determine.
"We must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it -- but we
must sail, and not drift, nor lie at anchor." -- Oliver Wendell Holmes
