I am very jealous of all you peeps who live in the UK: BBC Two is starting this series, Last Chance to See tomorrow! Alas, I cannot see it.

    I’m hoping that the series will be available for purchase on the UK iTunes store, and that there’s a way for those of us Last Chance to See fans in America to then make purchases in the UK store!
