[Xmca-l] Re: Fwd: Butterflies of Zagorski

Thanks for the clarification Andy,

I like that video very much, and it is easily accessible on Youtube,
but only in Portuguese and with a very very bad quality. I showed it
in my classes at Brazil to discuss development and education, the
students always got shocked that a blind person can be a Psychologist
and have a fruitful life. But now I am in Japan and looked everywhere
to an English copy, even with BBC, and no chance.

Indeed most BBC documentaries are available online, but this is not.
