    Dear James, Thank you for your interest in The Most Secret Place on Earth.
    Unfortunately the only legal copy of the film at present is in German. The 52 minute version ripped from ABC television in Australia is currently up on youtube and you can find it here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i8cIki7awN8
    I am sorry not to be able to point you in the direction of the full length feature version at this point though you might get lucky with some torrent sites like piratebay.org.

    Hope this helps, Tom
