First, watch this. Hugely controversial film recently shown on Channel 4. Then read this. Geez.



Google Video Documentaries

As a substitute to late-night TV, I have discovered the virtues of Google Video when it comes to storing brilliant BBC documentaries. Some of my recent favourites:

- Adam Curtis’s controversial yet brilliant four-hour long The Century of the Self (part 1 2 3 4)

- Another Adam Curtis masterpiece, equally controversial and brilliant: The Power of Nightmares (part 1 2 (oddly enough, I can’t find the link at the moment) 3)

- Omaar Rageh Inside Tehran – a nice 90-minute tour of modern-day Tehran with all its contrasts, so different from the usual Western coverage.

- Jonathan Miller’s Brief History of Disbelief – simply brilliant.
