Are these Documentaries free?
Yes ! I really don’t see anything wrong with sharing these documentaries. Anyone in the UK already pays a licence to watch these programs, so what’s the difference on YouTube? And for those in the US – why should they not be able to view them? Education is very important and knowledge needs to be shared! As far as I now the BBC does not allow their programs in the US, not even by paying. So my morals are still intact + I think I should be sharing these! Thanks
Why does none of your documentaries play for me?
Please note some of the videos require DIVX and XVID Codecs.
For most of our documentaries, you will need to have Adobe Flash player installed. If you do not have this, please get it here: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

Can I play your documentaries on my iPod/iPhone/iPad?
Unfortunately, most of the documentaries on our website require you to support a Flash Player and flash video (Iphone and Ipad do not have Flash Player).
Documentaries hosted on YouTube should be visible without any problems on devices supporting HTML5 like Iphone, Ipad.
I get a message a certain documentary is not available, or the documentary does not load
There can be several reasons for this. Please check first if other documentaries at our website do play for you.
