Looking For Old Dialite Video

About 20+ years ago, when I worked for GTE, we had a list of video
tapes we could request from GTE's main headquarters in Stamford,
Conneticut. Most of the tapes were educational or safety tapes, meant
to be shown for training and during employee meetings.

But I remeber one tape I requested that was a short tongue in cheek
video to "educate" the general public about where dial tone comes
from. The tape started out showing a rock quarry, mining type
operation. It went on to explain how "dialite" was extracted from the
rocks and refined into dial tone. I don't know if dialite is the word
used in the video, but it was something important sounding.

Has anyone ever seen this, or know how I might get a copy of it again?
