In my summary I referred to PBS, and have since had it pointed out to
me that this acronym is opaque to many non-Americans.
PBS is the US public broadcasting system, and can be reached via a
toll free phone number (known as an 800 number, since the toll free
area code is 800). This number can be obtained by anyone in the
United States by calling the 800 operator. If you don't live in the
States, your best bet is to get someone at a US academic
institution to make the call for you and have the brochure sent to
them and then have them forward it to you. I'm not sure how or if
you can order directly from overseas, or if you will need to get
someone to do it for you.
