    At one time there were rumblings of some of t.v. specials that were done by these ladies years ago, being released on DVD. But it has been a long time...and i have heard nothing mentioned lately.
    Does anyone have any news??

    The best source for news regarding Barbra Streisand is:

    I haven't heard anything about Midler's or Minnelli's specials, although I would definitely purchase LIZA WITH A 'Z'.

    Hardly any TV variety specials are available on home video, and they don't ever seem to show up on television. I imagine that the music rights must be a stumbling block. Also, in her autobiography, Mary Tyler Moore mentions that a variety special she did back in the 1970s would never be rerun because it would not be economically feasible (due to union regulations) to do so. Does anyone out there know what sort of union regulations she is referring to?
