    Can the documentaries be downloaded or do they require internet access to screen?

    Hi David,
    You’ll need to be connected to the Internet to watch the documentaries. If you’d like to watch something offline, try downloading a few TED Talks (although they take up a good chuck of space on your iPad) http://wp.me/p2qsME-N
