My Boy Jack

We're so happy you enjoyed the program!

Unfortunately, we are not planning on airing it again and it is not yet available to watch online. You could visit the Masterpiece website at http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/masterpiece/myboyjack/index.html to check the online viewing status or find information about purchasing the DVD.

Otherwise, if you live in the Rochester area, the Monroe County Library System has several copies on DVD available to borrow.
