Does anyone know if the ABC Special, "Being Black" is available?

Gwiz, its ironic that Richard Milner and Tariq Nasheed ultimately led me to remember these two 

This interview should be resurrected and shown repeatedly on national television with opportunities for a national dialogue in response! It's as if William Grier and Price Cobbs are describing the situation in 2015, not 1968--FORTY-SEVEN YEARS AGO!
