an incredible film. not everyone will be able to watch it because it's UK based. a story of survival, hope and regeneration.

It annoys me that I cannot watch this when I pay a licence fee to our cable provider to have BBC1,2,3,4 & Entertainment.  What is it with i-Player that we cannot see the programmes again here in Holland?  It seems bizarre. I've already paid to watch it. 

Surely the fee I pay is a kind of licence fee to watch BBC channels.

I have to go to bed at 11pm each evening when all the best programmes are on at 10am in the UK.  We are one hour ahead and we have to miss them all as we would be going to bed each evening at midnight.  My husband has to get up at 6.30am  for a 45 minute drive to work.

So sorry I missed this.

here is a link to the page where You can voice Your opinion, Lin.

than go to the "No, I want to comment......" link ( to long to post here).

have You thought to record the programmes which You receive yet cannot watch due to the inconvenience of the transmission times ? then view at you leisure later.

Good news MC :)

I belong to another forum and Ive just lost a friend on there (he battled with cancer for 8 months)......he was Jewish and lived in Holland. He told me once, that he'd lost upwards of a 100 relatives in the concentration camps and he hated all Germans.

My father in law was one of the soldiers who liberated Bergen Belsen....and he said he will never forget the sights he saw there...walking skeletons. They had to bull doze bodies into a mass grave.
My Dad in law is dead now..but Ill never forget what he told me :'(
