WTB (maybe) Alan Peters, Makers's Maker DVD

Posted this in the Hand Tool Forum but thought it might get more exposure here>
I am interested in learning more about Alan Peters, the highly respected British furniture maker who died in 2009.
There is a documentary entitled Alan Peters - The Makers' Maker, made Jeremy Broun. On Broun's site there is a short introductory clip of the documentary. It doesn't make me want to buy the full film. It mostly shows other makers talking about how important Peters was to them and the whole British furniture making field. I know he is important. That's why I want to learn more about hime and his work. Testionials are nice, but not what I am looking for.
Has anyone seen the film? What do you think of it?
Do you have one you are finished with that you might want to sell?

A couple of replies in the Hand Tool Forum, but I am not sure how to interpret the lack of response to my post in SS.

Alan Peters is certainaly an important person in the history of contemporary woodworking. Is the video not a worthwhile representation of his work and ideas or is there some other reason that so few people have responded to my post here?  Has anyone seen it or bought the video?
