I wish I could see it to review it
9 May 2019 | by cristina_barcuSee all my reviews

I made a couple of calls and found out that the licencing rights have been sold to Channel 4 and they do not distribute CDs or DVDs with movies, including this one as well.,. Neither do they offer this on-catch up TV. The only real way to see this again would be to call Channel 4 UK, as I've done, and suggest to them that you want the scheduling team to insert this movie into the TV programme and hope for the best. I told the operator that I want to see this on TV,on their Chanel and she took my feedback.
