How to watch Janine Jansen Stradivari documentary in US?

September 28, 2021, 9:41 PM · I would pay for view on a US cable channel or even purchase the documentary if I had a link to a vendor.
Does anybody know how to watch

Edited: September 28, 2021, 11:51 PM · Hi, I was curious and after lots of clicks I found that it premieres in the UK tomorrow on a channel called sky arts.

After more clicks, found that you can stream sky arts from and they have a 7day trial for 1 euro.

That's where I stopped. Hope it helps! :)

However, with the right VPN, you'll be able to sign in and stream content from anywhere in the world." So in the morning, when I'm more alert, I'll find out what 'the right VPN' means. I appreciate your help, Carlos!

Well, the documentary will probably get to The Colonies some day. I'd love to watch the analysis of a dozen Strads by Janine Jansen.

September 29, 2021, 10:42 AM · Is this the CD "12 Stradivari" that is due to be released in the US on Nov. 5?

Edited: September 29, 2021, 2:56 PM · Andrew, what I understand from my reading of THE STRAD is that I'm wanting to watch a full-length video that documents the making of the CD. I've had recordings before comparing famous violins, but this seemed to me to add much more information. There are links to a "trailer" of the video and audio excerpts from the CD, but the video film -- an hour + in length -- at this point seems limited to UK distribution.
September 29, 2021, 3:09 PM · It seems to havre a link to the IMDB streaming service but is not available yet in the US.

In my search for it earlier today I found the 2010 film "JANINE" on youtube and watched that. It waas new to me.

Edited: September 30, 2021, 10:26 AM · Just got back from a chamber orchestra rehearsal so haven't had a chance to watch the documentary live, but my wife recorded it. I'll watch it tomorrow.

To go on with, here is a review of the documentary from The Guardian. I have little doubt the documentary will eventually turn up in the US and elsewhere (YouTube perhaps?). The review includes a 2 min video of extracts from the documentary - to whet one's appetite for the complete thing!

October 1, 2021, 11:02 AM · The Janine Jansen Stradivari documentary is being repeated on the Sky Arts channel, in the UK, next Wednesday, October 6 at 9 pm.
