hey everyone,
really really want to watch the BBC doc film 'nightmare in the city that never sleeps' about 77' and the blackout.
it was apparently on youtube but BBC must have had it removed at some point for bs 'copyright infringement' which seems to make zero sense if they don't have it for sale anywhere.
i have searched and searched and searched, not available directly from BBC or PBS, not anywhere for sale even, and not on the couple of rip sites that i occasionally check for stuff like this.
anyone have a link to watch this online or possibly even a copy they want to sell?

thanks in advance everyone

I can't quite tell from your post - have you actually contacted the BBC? You could also ask at the Museum of Television and Radio, or whatever they all themselves now. However, unfortunately you've fallen into the trap of thinking that everything should always be available, preferably for free, and that's not necessarily how it works. Copyright infringement is an issue, and just because it's not freely available now doesn't mean they should give up future rights.
