    @doninvictoria - We have a vast collection of films available on this site for free streaming - many of them in the history/war category. However, we don't have the rights to stream all our films online for free. Some of these films can be seen by those subscribed to our educational offer, and this is one of those titles. The subscription fee to our educational offer covers the rights required to stream the films in the classroom.

    And another thing -- your interface is a disgrace.

    It is a disgrace that you want me to pay $25 to see a film that I was shown in elementary school and that has been paid for many times over by Canadians in the last 50 years. Have you no shame?
