Pure, White and Deadly does look like it's scheduled to be available in the U.K. in November 2012:

On a side note, the above page mentioned that the lecturer in the video (Lustig) has a book scheduled to come out in Autumn December 2012:

  Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease

^ FWIW I'll repost this which I found a fair opposition counter-balance to Lustig

This video actually gives you REAL science to back up claims, and not just some namby-pamby soft claims and BS like you usually get. (Very refreshing!)

Sugar the bitter truth

I recommend watching that video very highly. I cannot stress enough just how insightful it is, and how good the information is. Most often you get some wishy-washy BS with no hard science and no real information. This guy is hard core and doesn't dumb things down. He has actual information and explains it intelligently. That being said, put your thinking cap on as it will challenge you unless you are well educated in biochemistry.

Accidentally came across a very good critique of this video here:
The bitter truth about fructose alarmism.
Summary:
it's all about context/quantity. Demonising one thing/factor is not helpful for people's understanding of things. And it appears that he (Lustig) has gotten a lot more carried away than the evidence warrants.
The critique is *not* saying sugar is good for you :p

Gets very well trashed out in the comments, including some debate with Dr. Lustig (author/presenter of the video).
