NBC News vids in works

NEW YORK — NBC News is planning a homevid line featuring segments from its newsmags and archival documentary libraries.

In a venture with New Video, NBC this fall will begin selling individual tapes and boxed sets based on “Dateline NBC,” “Today” and “Meet the Press,” along with MSNBC cable web programs like the computer-oriented “The Site” and “Time and Again,” a time-capsule series hosted by Jane Pauley.

The tapes will be sold at retail, by direct response and through schools and libraries, despite the risk that most news programming by definition is a perishable commodity.

“Certainly some of the news is perishable, but we have series that take an in-depth look at societal issues, and that certainly in many instances is evergreen,” said Claire Tully, the news division’s director of business development.

Tully refused to say how many tapes would be released, how they’ll be priced or which topics have been selected, although she said informational, how-to titles would be among them.
