Watching Monty

I'm very happy to say that I have found a way to watch Monty Don's "Round the World in 80 Gardens". We don't have BBC America here--the cable company doesn't carry it--and even if we did, it probably wouldn't show really good BBC TV but rather what they think the USA audience might like. Benny Hill (why do the French like Benny Hill so much?... side note) and stuff about footballers' wives etc.

And there isn't a region 1 version of the DVD.

So... I bought the region 2 version from the Beeb (http://www.bbc.com) and connected my home PC up to the TV with and HDMI cable, then use the PC as my region 2 DVD player! Works fine!

Now for more BBC DVDs...
