Why can’t I watch this documentary over the internet?[edit]

It’s well past time for all serious broadcasters to rethink how they operate and expand their notions about who their audience is. I want to see this documentary and in a timely manner.

The BBC should be streaming it out to all of Terry’s fans, to Alzheimer’s suffers and their families, and all other interested parties across the globe. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs)

Alas the same thing applies in reverse for those of us in the UK who keep seeing adverts online saying "Watch all new XXXXXXXX now on" etc. We can't, as it threatens revenue for the broadcasters. Even the ones with advertising know that advertising US products to the UK doesn't make any money. Although the worse thing, for me, is how the BBC iPlayer in the UK also doesn't include foreign imports - so Family Guy means familyguyx for me... Redvers (talk) 19:34, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

According the article cited on the wikipedia article on posterior cortical atrophy,PCA isn't the same thing as Alzheimer's disease. — 19:11, 23 February 2009 (UTC)
