Subject: BS: Where to buy Ken Burns DVD in San Diego?

Having watched all 11? hours of Ken Burns Civil War series on PBS in the UK, I wanted to get his series 'Liberty' on DVD. It's not available in the UK; I could import it but that would incur taxes and handling charges (which have gone up a lot since I used to import CDs.) So, since my wife and I were planning a tour of California I thought it would be easy to nip into a store, Barnes and Noble maybe, and pick one up. Not so: spent yesterday walking around San Francisco without finding any such store. Probably you Americans buy from Amazon, just like we do.

Anyway, we're now in Yosemite and won't be in another city till San Diego in a fortnight. Anybody know where I might get it there?

Do you have the technology to play a DVD from American in the UK? I mean, does UK tech play US DVDs? Or is that a stupid question...
Can a us friend get it on amazon? Or do they not have it, I wasn't sure.

Hi, Dave -
What's the DVD about?
I see a Ken Burns Statue of Liberty DVD and a PBS series called Liberty! about the Revolutionary War, but no Ken Burns DVD titled "Liberty."
You should be able to order from Barnes & Noble or Best Buy and pick up your order in Fresno or San Diego.

Joe: it's the series about the Revolutionary War. I doubt if I could order using a UK credit card but I could try try ringing or emailing Barnes & Noble in San Diego and finding out if they have it or could get it.

Mrrzy: it'll be a 'US region' DVD, one reason why it's not sold in Europe. Needs some hacking of the DVD player to make it 'multi region'.

BTW, Shelby Foote, who appeared in the Civil War series, wrote some fiction set during that time. Anybody recommend any of it?
