    They filmed the show or shows over the 3 nights at the Frontier.

    I think most of the stuff that Berry still has in his private collection has passed that opportunity of being sought after. "TCB", "GIT", "Farewell" and Diana "Let's See" are really just desirable for some of the die hard fans. These are probably his treasures to keep for satisfaction. These are the type of questions that are never brought up in his interviews. Of course its not just the Supremes. There are other Motown artists specials that have never seen the light of day.

    TCB would move some noticeable units if ever released, judging by the amount of interest in it via Youtube. Reelblack, who uploads a ton of fantastically, often obscure, videos of African American movies, tv shows, interviews, tv specials, etc, recently uploaded the clip of Diana's African Vogue segment from TCB and there were a lot of comments from people wishing to see the whole show. The fact that Motown and whoever else is involved in the rights to the special hasn't capitalized on the potential success of releasing the special on dvd seems almost criminally dumb.

    I noticed that Reelblack had posted this as well! Mike's channel is a real Godsend.

    Right! There's so much stuff he posts that I had no idea about. How he finds all this stuff, I don't know, but I hope he keeps it up.

    Reelblack is one of the best channels on Youtube in my opinion. He's taken over from where Heyzekial left off a year or so ago.

    If TCB is ever going to do good DVD business, they'd better release it now. Those that really loved it and GIT have them on bootleg tapes and DVDs. Those that are curious about them may loose interest and those that want them for nostalgic reasons (watch them originally on television) and getting older and older now.

    He's out of Philadelphia and I believe has another channel geared more to social commentary.

    On Instagram there is an account called The_Supremes_fanpage that includes lots of great and RARE photos of the group, many that I've never seen before, and definitely worth checking out if you're a Supremes/Motown fan. Well they recently posted a concert photo of the Supremes on stage during a week long engagement at Leo's Casino in Cleveland, Ohio where they performed from July 14-19 , 1966 and while they were in Cleveland they performed on a local tv program there called the Upbeat Show. and the posted stated there might still be footage of their performance!

    I remember "Upbeat". It had a number of Motown artists appear on it. There were a lot of local shows across the country the Supremes and others appeared on where the footage has not surfaced, at least not publicly. Jean Terrell did a lot of television work with the Supremes that has not made it's way to the public domain. They did a lot of foreign programs and local shows in most major U.S. cities.

    who owns the rights now to TCB? It was a George Schlatter production (the guy that brought us Laugh In). any idea who might own it now? Looks like Laugh In is owned by Proven Entertainment

    Also since there are so many cover tunes (Eleanor Rigby, Do You Know the Way, Respect, etc) would it be a challenge to get it released due to royalties to those publishers and owners?

    I'm not sure who owns TCB. George Schlatter may have produced it, but I know Berry Gordy owned it at least originally. Probably still does.
