I'm not Dr. Nelson but I'll add a bit of information that I do
I checked both our local PBS station and wrote to PBS about
"The Tree of Music" and have received replies from both stating
the tape is unavailable to the public. I did not ask about the
availability for educational institutions.
You may be able to find more information
the entry page into the Blackwook Conservation Project.
As a bit of trivia, the clarinet pictured at
of the pages within the African Blackwood Conservation Project
is a Buffet Greenline. I know - it's a "borrowed" copy of the
clarinet picture that I scanned and edited for my Clarinet Info
Pages. The accidental divot on the mouthpiece gives it away :)
