And don't confuse broadcast standards with DVD "region" restrictions. While this DVD is "region-free," it still may not play on any given dvd player due to PAL/NTSC formatting conflicts, but again it will likely play on most computers.

The "D&RS" DVDs are about to ship and if you pre-ordered be advised that you purchased the PAL version. PAL is the broadcast standard for Europe and elsewhere while NTSC is used in the US and Canada. Most computers and many DVD players can convert PAL to an NTSC output, but many cannot. If you live in the US or Canada and pre-ordered, you can contact the filmmakers at:

mail at coffeefilms.com

with your order info and they will "try to sort it", i.e. substitute the NTSC version once it is available.
