Why is it unavailable for purchase???
26 October 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I saw this telemovie some years ago on Australian TV and thought it was excellent - it is well acted, beautifully produced and quite fascinating in its content. The passion and determination of the researchers to find a treatment for Type 1 diabetes was very moving, and the story of the little girl who was literally at death's door brings home powerfully just what a serious disease Type 1 diabetes is, and what a miracle the discovery of insulin was for all diabetics.

It is also a powerful example of the good that animal experimentation did in this particular case, although I accept that much animal experimentation is totally unnecessary.

I have Type 1 diabetes myself, and in my opinion this movie is an extremely important one - in fact, I think it should be compulsory viewing for all newly-diagnosed Type 1 (insulin-dependent) diabetics.

Why, oh why is this film not available on DVD??? Please, CBC, please re-release it! There must be a demand for it, and you could promote it through national and state diabetic associations world-wide.
