    It is very frustrating that,as a Canadian, we have no access to the online streaming from PBS yet can watch the programmes. Due to a power cut last week we did not get the last 20 mind of last week’s Finding your Roots as the video is not available. Yet conversely you will take our money in subscriptions. This seems very unfair?
    How could this be rectified? Yours Liz Simpson
