Haven't contacted that guy yet; but my wife kindly left
the cassette at a photo shop which plans to produce a copy and a
couple of DVDs over the weekend. If it can, of course; I warned
them about the format.

I have no television. Not over my dead body. Much less
anything that accepts tapes. That's why I need something that I
can view on my monitor.
I have no idea what equipment my local doctor has, either
in his office or at home. But it seems a reasonable bet he'll be
able to view either a tape or a DVD; and another friend, who
teaches veterinary pathology, wants to view it -- but he's out of
town at present.
Stay tuned; and many thanks to all for the help so far!

I am not either absent-minded! I'm single-minded.
There's a difference.
