as in, most realistic, informative and convincing?
ie. not 'The Execution of Gary Glitter' etc.
Working with EB patients really brings home the reality of what he had to go through
Into blood territory?
End of thread.
Civilization by Kenneth Clarke is worth checking out too. Perhaps one of the first TV art history documentaries ever made. It was probably made in the mid-60s. Its style and how an early documentary was put together is very interesting when compared to later ones.
I'm now going to write about it.
and the wonders of the universe is great too. and yeah anything david attenborough has done
also from him:
The Century Of The Self, The Trap & The Mayfair Set, &c.
all available @:
^the latter two sites have lots more very good stuff from other people
I've been trying to find the power of nightmares for ages so I could re-watch it
Just mesmerising stuff.
WELL...WELL depressing but interesting too.
That was brilliant. I really liked that one. I liked the fat lady who looked like a man that was in love with the fairground ride.
There was one on not too long ago about the lady who married lots of people at the same time. She was hilarious. The way she spoke was just great. She said something like "When I cry, I cry alone...or in the rain". It really makes me laugh.
but along the same lines, that recent dogging one, and the one ages ago about people who had relationships with their pets were classics.
About the cheapness of worldwide shipping costs nowadays compared to pre 60s times.
It's TheoGB and _morrissey approved. What better recommendation?
Sounds shite, but a genuinely eye-opening view of how the world works. Not on iPlayer at the mo. Other video services are available.
I know nothing about art, but i liked it.
is on BBC Four tonight. 11pm. Genuinely absorbing and eye opening stuff.
Good series illustrating the conflict in northern Ireland. Watched all of them last year.
Really really affected me. I thought it was a brilliant programme.
It was a documentary about the taxidermy world championships.
The trailer's on Vimeo but I've never been able to find the full thing online. I'd love to see it again.
I managed to watch a lot of Adam Curtis stuff on there last time I had a look.
Brilliantly, my pc in work froze on that page for about 5 minutes there.
Provos, Loyalists and Brits.
about Unity Mitford: http://www.channel4.com/programmes/hitlers-british-girl
It had loads of good Mitford details in it, and suggested that Unity may have had Hitler's baby. EXCELLENT STUFF.
