    I've been looking and can't find it yet on my local PBS - KQED,KRCB, KTEH. It may come on as On Demand, I certainly hope so. I contacted the film's website and they at first said they don't sell the DVD to individuals (very odd) but then in another email offered to sell it to me for $29.95. They did also tell me that the show would be re-broadcast today, the 17th but like I said, I haven't found it yet. I will eventually find it. Lot's of memories. Geez the things I saw and did, ah youth. :-)

    I don't have tv. I did find 2 separate versions of this on torrent available to download, and started them the other day. One is at 90% and the other at 50%. It stops and starts while I'm online as it finds and loses seeders. I've got both going to see which finishes first.

    When this thread first appeared I was sort of annoyed because I am currently quite frustrated with the limitations of the ADA.

    I watched the documentary last night anyway and it actually took me back to 1990. Then I was one year post SCI, just heading back to school and it kind of reminded me of the extra confidence it gave me at that time to actually take more risks to be the best I could be. It is interesting how we sometimes forget how far things have come.

    That said, I'm still frustrated with many of the obstacles our community stills faces though!

    That is my concern. The commitment, work together ethic, and willingness to make sacrifices my generation had seems to be dying with us. We got the ADA put in place. It is up to the current generation to put the enforcement piece in place. There are many complainers but few, if any leaders. Lone voices crying out in the dark are not going to do it.

    Thanks, but one of the torrents finally finished today So for anyone that uses torrents, its out there and possible to get the entire thing. If anyone wants to know which torrent I used you can pm me. I'll keep seeding the file when I'm online.

    It was interesting to watch, but I was hoping that they'd also show how far we have yet to go...
