What's next for PBS - Mick Jagger tote bags?

The Rolling Stones, old hands at making money from their extravagant concert tours, have decided to help public television make money, too.

The broadcast-television premiere of their 1997-98 "Bridges to Babylon" tour will be seen exclusively on the Public Broadcasting Service next month, as a highlight of its March pledge drives.The band gave PBS exclusive rights to sell videotapes of the program for seven months.

The 90-minute program is being presented by KCET, the Los Angeles PBS station - now known as KCET/Hollywood. "We're still in Los Angeles," said KCET's spokeswoman, Laurel Lambert. "It's just to make clear, nationally, that we're the West Coast, entertainment-world PBS station."
