VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS

Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.

An Absolute MUST for Everyone!
Review by Bad G. on 07/30/20 review stating An Absolute MUST for Everyone!
In our current financial situation, this film is a must-see for everyone! It puts clarity on how consumers with perfect credit, responsible spending, and an uninterrupted on-time payment history can suddenly without warning be slapped with a 30% interest rate which is higher than default rates were just a few years ago! We have closed paid all credit accounts and gone all-cash since viewing it.
