I recently wrote to PBS, in hopes of finding some copies of the Mole television series, and their response follows:
Dear PBS Viewer:
Thank you for your request and inquiry of Adrian Mole.
Unfortunately, PBS does not currently offer this program for distribution.
Further research can be obtained from the Video Source Book published
by Gale Publishers. It is a great resource for searching for the availability
of video products and can be located in most of your major public libraries.
Also available is the VIDEOFINDERS service at (800) 343-4727.
We trust that this information has been helpful and again thank you.
