    The Department of Labor is giving out copies of this DVD free of charge via this link: http://www.dol.gov/opa/dvd/

    I can't find any more information about the documentary. The DOL site describes it like this:

    Surely many of us will want to have a copy of this importnat historical document.

    Thanks for the info. I ordered one. Apparently only open to US residents as the order form is only set up for US adresses.

    Looks like the Iowans are the only ones getting in on this! Thanks for the post. Hopefully it will be a good watch.

    Just ordered one. Thanks for the link, this will make a good compliment to my 9-11 DVDs, adding to the historical record.

    I ordered one as well.

    I also cannot find any more info on this documentary. It's not on the imdb, either. Odd.

    it is really too bad the the DVD cant be updated to include the fact that many of the rescue/cleanup workers at the WTC are coming down with some very grave illness directly related to their heroic acts-not to mention the fact that EPA warnings about the toxic nature of the work were toned down, or deleted all together by....-well, read the article...

    So, has anyone actually received a copy of this DVD?

    I ordered mine two months ago (the DOL site says to allow "up to 6 weeks") and have yet to receive it, nor have I gotten any reply to email inquiries about it. I figure it either hasn't actually been released yet or there was a glitch when I filled out the order form on the DOL site.

    Of course, it's free so one can't complain. Just curious as to what's up with it.

    I completely forgot about it! I have not received the DVD yet. Perhaps they were overwhelmed.

    Yup, I got an e-mail too. Shipping within one week? That seems pretty fast, since they have 137,000 to ship!
