Tom Perry is checking with C4 on the questions of foreign access. Meanwhile he tells me that the producers have made the film available in the USA. If you are interested, check out the details on this address: http://www.truevisiontv.com/videos/index.htm

Chosen will be available over the net (worldwide)- no geographical limitations from midnight (GMT) tonight. Go to www.chosen.org.uk and look for the tab "Watch Film"

The film is free to see, but viewers are invited to make small contributions using the means provided.

Joel and others,

As I have said previously, just bear in mind that this is a very powerful film. Three guys will look out at you and say, "This is what they did", and there will be a lot of stills of the guys as boys, also shots of the abusers. It might be helpful if you have someone you trust there to watch the film with you.

But all that said, it's very uplifting. These three men refused to stay shut up and have done something incredibly courageous not only for themselves but for so many others. It shows that we really do have what it takes to see ourselves through to recovery, even if it doesn't feel like that now.

Much love,
Larry

When you get to the end of recovery, is there a sign post or marker that says :"Recovered, end of journey"? I am so sick and yes, pissed over being in recovery. I want this done, now.....I'm tired and I don't wanna play no more!!! Geez, that felt good smile

Maybe this film will give me some badly needed insights. And thanks for the warning, Larry.

By my calculation its 12:38 GMT Monday Dec. 15th, but I see no Tab to watch the film. Am I missing something? Can anyone else see the tab, or is there anyone currently watching the film?

I don't know what I'm not doing right, but on channel4.com when I select watch online and select Chosen I get this:

You need to be within the UK or the Republic of Ireland to watch Channel 4 programmes.

Larry:

You seem to know the people who made this film. Please convey to them that I think they have done a fantastic job. And the courage of those men! Omigod! They have indeed set an excellent example for us, and set a new standard for open dialogue of the issue of male sexual abuse and assault. I hope our CBC will pick it up. I shall write to them tomorrow and urge them to do so. In saying this it may also be prudent to ask if the show is aired, are our community resources ready to handle what will surely come? Probably not, but then, will we ever be, without those who stand up and shout End the Silence?

With my heartfelt thanks for any and all efforts you extended, and as well to those who you contacted, to get this documentary on the internet.

Jim
