Subject: [Puptcrit] "The Art of Ventriloquism"

In 1979, I produced a single half-hour TV show for my senior project in Communications at NYU.  It was called "The Art of Ventriloquism" and I hosted.  I interviewed Stan Burns and Dan Ritchard, two working ventriloquists, and George Schindler, a working magician who was also a magic dealer.

The show was shown on WNYC-TV, Channel 31 in New York; it was later shown on WNET-TV, Channel 13.  I believe it was shown twice on each station in 1979.

Anyway, a vent dealer wants to know how much the rights to this show are so that he can sell DVD copies of it.

The master at WNYC-TV is long destroyed (a la Paul Winchell lawsuit) so I don't even possess a copy of it.

What should I charge this dealer, who does have a copy of it?
