I'm seeking any of you folks who might have a videotape copy (in any
system) of an Australian episode of the "60 minutes" TV show of 1988
that dealt with the Great Carlos Caper. That was the hoax by Jose
Alvarez (I was involved, too) and it had Richard Carleton as the host.
I'm looking for a GOOD copy, since the one I have is rather poor.
Alvarez appeared as a "chaneller" who manifested himself as "Carlos"
and fooled the Australian media, but good.

If you have and information on this matter, please contact me at
