I can speak to this Mike. I have two shows I am working on. Here’s the way PBS works. I write the show, I tape the show & I edit the show. The local PBS station provides logistical and facility support. They own the air rights to my show. I own the show. (I have the copyright). The local PBS station sells the show to other PBS stations. They keep the money. With the loss of federal support they are after every penny they can find to stay alive. In return I get the tape & DVD sells witch is were the real money is. I can buy DVDs for around a buck each including the package. 1000 cost $1500 after added up front cost. I sell those DVDs for $15 each plus shipping cost and I’ve made $15000. That’s the reason these folks keep making shows and why there’s ads at the end of shows offering tapes & DVDs.
