Hi Maryanne, |
The only way around getting the DVDS is to get someone in Canada to buy them and post them to you in the UK as the Canadian Film Board will charge you extra to send them to the UK as they do not have a licence to broadcast them in the UK.
I have a contact who is a writer and has written books on the Canadians in Hong Kong and he may be able to send the DVDs to me but at present he is in Mexico.
You can send UK Sterling via recorded delivery as money orders are so expensive.
I was amazed how reluctant the Canadian Film Board were to send me the DVDs as I really love History and the Valour and Horror is a very moving set of films.
Please get in touch if you need anymore info
