Can anyone help, I need a copy of "The Suicide Tourist" for my RE class next week. (We are in the UK so we can not use the PBS website etc.)

You can watch the PBS site's video from the UK by using a proxy.

I'm in the UK and have just tested it using the Epic Privacy browser which uses an encrypyted proxy by default. See screenshot below. The video loads quickly and plays all the way through to the end.

Using a proxy server to circumvent blocks on access to broadcasting is a violation of US law.

Court rules that IP cloaking to access blocked sites violates law - CNET

It appears to be a violation of UK law too.

As pointed out, use of proxies to view blocked websites is illegal in the UK, but out of interest I downloaded and installed epicbrowser. I tried it on a site that I know is blocked by my ISP, but can be viewed with the Tor browser. In epicbrowser it still got blocked by my ISP,

It looks like using proxies and VPNs might be illegal in some cases, such as this one. MPR's link to Amazon is the only UK source I can find for the DVD, and they only have 1 copy left.

For reference though, and to answer JohnthePilot, to enable proxies in Epic Browser, the icon at the top right of the address bar needs to be set to green to be enabled. If it's red, then it's using a standard connection. If it still doesn't work, click it a couple of times until it changes to a proxy from a different country.

Thanks for the tip. I can now see the webpage previously blocked by my ISP.
