If I visit the PBS site I would be refused because my IP clearly identifies me as non-american ("Hey, hang on, that is a swiss IP, I can't let that bloke in !"). No access, no dice, for rights reasons only american IPs are allowed to enter.

It is legal to hide or change your IP for various reasons and there are several ways to skin that cat. Be very careful when googling this though and remember kids, at your own risk ! It is not that difficult, there are several good tutorials out there, but if you do not feel secure I advise you wait for the DVD release. Might include a few bonus interviews, featurettes, outtakes, who knows ? If that thing wins an Oscar you will see it on shelves in a few weeks anyway...

Thanks for that. I think I'll wait for the DVD to arrive in Australia.
