I thank all of you who suggested calling PBS to get a copy of the
tape of the "Tree of Life" that dealt with African blackwood and the
problems that the show asserted were arising to impact clarinet players.
I spent quite a time calling every PBS number in America, because each
number I called gave me instructions to call another.
The bottom line is this: that particular tape (which is part of the
"Nature" series, not the "Nova" series as I said earlier) has not
been made available for sale and no such intentions are expected in
the future. It was felt to have too small an audience.
Doesn't anyone out there in klarinet land have a copy of that program
on tape? Does anyone besides me remember it?
