Help me find a copy of "Between Time and Timbuktu"

A TV movie based on / inspired by Vonnegut's work of the similar name. I have found an archive in Boston (here) that appears to have a copy, but it can only be viewed in person, and they wont issue a copy of it.

I would love to find a place where I can purchase a licensed, legitimate copy, but if those options are exhausted without any leads, I will take just about any version possible. I just want to watch it.

The Sonoma State University Library has a copy on DVD. Maybe you can request it via ILL?

Thanks. I have no idea if I an eligible for the ILL (not a college student or associated with the university). If anyone has suggestions in that vein, that would help also.

I don't know where you're located, but The Paley Center for Media has a copy in their collection (part 1, part 2). Like the archive you found, they'll only allow you to view it in person. However, they do have two locations — one in Los Angeles and one in New York (the same collection is available in both locations).

As far as ILL is concerned, public libraries do it as well. Your profile says Seattle - Seattle Public doesn't borrow video materials, sadly, but maybe there's another public library near you that would.

I'll get it through USC and rip it for ya.

Thanks for the suggestions, I think getting someone who has access to the ILL to get it and figure it out from there.
