Secrets of Selfridges
Step inside London's premier department store
Two words are synonymous with Selfridges: luxury and London. However, Selfridges was the brain child of an American - Mr. Harry Gordon Selfridge - whose life is depicted in the current MASTERPIECE miniseries Mr. Selfridge. The real, flamboyant Mr. Selfridge brought about a complete revolution in the way that Londoners shopped, introducing a new American retail model which made shopping less of a practical pursuit and more of a luxurious adventure. But there was another one side to the story - Harry's private life. When it began to seep into his business, the effect on him and his store was devastating.
VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
