Don't know about the tab but you should buy the movie if its not going to airing on you local pbs station any time soon. You may also want to check a local video\dvd rental store to see if they have it . Here in NYC they have it in the Linclon Center public library. It a great film. In my opinion it's the best film in the 'Martain Sorcese Present The Blues" series. The film is narrated by Lawrence Fishburne in the person of Blind Willie Johnson. Chris Thomas King from "O'Brother Where Art Thou" Plays Bind Willie Johnson The scenes of Blind Willie and a young Skip James is shot with a early hand crank camera. Looks like it was shot back in the 1920's and 30's The film is narrated from space because blind willie Johnson song "Dark Was The Night" was sent up in space on the Voyager space craft by Nasa in !977. It's really a kind of spacey down home film. My wife brought it for me for a gift because I rented it from tower about 6 times. Lots of great performaces by contempoary artis covering the songs of Blind Wllie, Skip James and J.B. Lenoir
