A note for TV stations

This note is for TV stations only, who may wish to broadcast Novella's HIV/AIDS PSA spot, "Is My Momma Ever Coming Back?". If you are not a broadcast engineer, click here instead to read about the PSA, see the storyboard, and watch an iPod or Quicktime version. It's also on YouTube.

Engineers: click and read on...

The PSA was originally produced and edited at the studios of WMC-TV in Memphis. If the master tape still exists, it would probably be in their vaults -- but last time we checked, they were unable to locate it. Copies may also exist in the libraries of other stations and cable outlets who had broadcast it at the time.

Fortunately, the WMC engineers had made a courtesy dub on VHS for Novella. I have digitized that copy in DV Type II format using Adobe Premiere on a PC. I think it's reasonably close to broadcast quality, and I know that other stations have used it. If you email me, I can send you that file on a CDR or DVD+R, whichever you prefer. I'm sorry, but I do not have the equipment to give you a DVCPRO or BETA-SP.

If you are in too much of a hurry for postal mail, you can download the file at link below. It's well over 150 megabytes. To conserve this site's bandwidth, please download it only if you really need it for broadcast purposes.

To download the file to a PC, right-click on the link, and click "Save Target As..." (or similar wording, depending on what browser you use).
