PBS Program: Do You Speak American?

Any chance anyone out there video taped this program on PBS when it
aired January 5?  I got the last 2 hours, but missed the first one on
the Northeast and Black English.  I planned to use it for my upcoming
American Dialects college course and our PBS isn't rebroadcasting it any
time soon.  It was rebroadcast at 1 AM this morning, but our PBS was off
the air by then (small town stations!)  I checked ordering info for PBS'
tapes and they're all backordered by about 1 month.

If anyone did tape this, I'd be happy to pay for postage and a VHS
cassette if you'd send me a copy of hour 1.

Please e mail me off list if you can help.

Freeman - And what drives you on, fighting the monster?

Straker - I don't know, something inside me I guess.

Freeman - It's called dedication.

Straker - Pig-headedness would be nearer.
