Please let us know if the difference between the DVD version and the free YouTube version make it worthwhile to buy the DVD.

I guess I'd have to go back and see the Canadian versions to see exactly where they differ, but the obvious difference was that it has a lot more scenes with Bill Pullman and his efforts to establish a community orchard. He's a really likable guy and he makes the movie a whole lot better.

I liked this version a little bit more than the CBC version even though this version had 30 seconds less of me. ;D

The reason there are two versions is that the film was funded by the Canadian government and they required the more educational version as well.

This version is much different and definitely worth buying a copy.

The Canadian TV program version has very little of Bill Pullman in it and no mention of his orchard in Hollywood, California.

Just noticed that the movie is 96 minutes long. The 2 clips on youtube were a total of 90 minutes, and of those 90 probably 10 minutes were introductions by narrator, so the movie is about 16 minutes longer than the Canadian TV show.

Believe it or not, I haven't watched it yet. My wife wanted to make it a family affair once our newly renovated living room was up and running.  Unfortunately, it is neither up nor running.......and so we wait.  Hopefully this week.

I thought it was very good and thoroughly enjoyed it, I will confess to my fruit tree geek status plus I was in bed under the influence of Vicodin after my minor surgery! Seriously I thought it was excellent. Mike

How does it compare to the FREE Youtube version?
