I just found out about an HBO documentary I'd like to see, "The Jazz Baroness." There's an HBO web page for it, but you can't find it on HBO Go or HBO On Demand. I was surprised at that as they otherwise seem pretty thorough in making just about everything they've ever done available in those contexts. Does anyone know of a way to contact HBO about content they're not making available on Go or On Demand?

Yeah, that's probably it. It looks like it was originally produced in the UK since IMBD identifies the website for the documentary as a UK site independent of HBO. And it appears it was made in 2009 with a DVD that came out last year.

I wish HBO GO had a bunch of its old series available, like "Dream On," "1st and 10," "Mr. Show" and "Tales from the Crypt."

I checked on Amazon about getting the DVD for this documentary and, alas, it's only available in a European format - PAL is the acronym they use. Oh well, maybe HBO will air it again sometime in the future. But now it appears to be simply unavailable for us on this side of the (Atlantic) pond. And, by the way, for those who don't know, the Jazz Baroness was a Rothschild living in New York at the height of the Be Bop era who had an amazing life supporting classic jazz artists like Thelonious Monk. Sadly, two of the greatest jazz musicians of the middle twentieth century died in her apartment - Charlie Parker and Monk. Great story.
