That sounds like great stuff! How common are these films in 16mm?
I would be very interested in these as well, especially the IBM ones and those about science.

I've got 'A Computer Glossary' [400 ft] - mounted (you should pardon the expression!) on a nice red reel with Britannica etc on it (and only rewinds back on to itself). I bought it 'cos I'm a retired computer wallah and it is one of several data processing documentaries I have. I guess I'd sell it if the offer was right. You know - make me an offer (excluding p&p) and I'll either say yes or laugh!!
Cheers, David E

Hi Den,
I have been searching for a copy of "Powers of Ten" for some years now. Seems to be quite rare. I believe my first posting to the Forum was concerning availability of this particular title.

Yeah, I've always been on the lookout for POWERS. A super amazing film. A fair number from Den's list were issued for the educational market. I've had a few copies of TOCATTA pass through my hands, and it would be my second favorite Eames film. Stunning cinematography. I've also got copies of TOPS, PARADE, ATLAS, and COMPUTER GLOSSARY. I'd really love to add the SX-70 film...I saw that screened behind the scenes at the George Eastman House....
