I believe that the Dickens Project tried to acquire a copy a few years
back without success. To my knowledge, it has never been released on
video, and since it appeared just before most people owned VCRs,
off-the-air copies are unlikely to turn up. But if that's wrong, I'd love
a copy too. It was wonderful.
