About Phoenix Learning Group
In 1973, Heinz Gelles and Barbara Bryant formed a company called Phoenix
Films & Video, committed to producing quality educational enrichment
films for libraries, universities, and special interest groups. After Phoenix
Films became established, BFA Educational Media was purchased from CBS.
In 1993, Phoenix moved its corporate headquarters from New York City to
St. Louis, Missouri, at which time all company divisions were organized as

In 1997, Phoenix acquired Coronet/MTI Films and its award-winning
collection of educational videos and multimedia programs from Simon &
Schuster, the publishing operation of Viacom, Inc.
