On the subject of buying videotapes versus taping them from tv, I have
a question: A colleague of mine (who teaches our film course and is
very much into the video scene in general) claims that it's perfectly
legal to tape anything you want to from tv and show it to your classes.
I've argued that that doesn't make sense, at least with videos that are
sold -- e.g., "American Tongues." If it's legal to tape from tv, why
would people buy the tapes?
Another question about "American Tongues": Are there two slightly different
versions of it? I'm almost positive I've seen slightly different versions.
Btw, I agree with the people who have given "American Tongues" glowing
reports. I consider it the best educational videotape I've ever seen --
accurate, enlightening, and fun.
