Simcha,

I obtained the German version on CD from a visiting Faculty from Germany.

It is a dramatic superconductor demonstration of magnetic flux pinning. It
is unrealistic as a cost effective application for a real train system, but
that does not really matter.

Do a little more of that work which you have confessed to be good,
Which you feel that society and your most Just Judge rightly demand of you.
Cultivate the tree which you have found to bear fruit in your soil.
If you have any experiments you would like to try, try them.
Now's your chance.

and I found the link to the German version :

It is worth to download the film although it take some time (~75 Mb).

You also might ask them if there is a link to the English version.
