    Return from ISIS: A couple of years old, BBC Panorama about a family's experiences having been 'tricked' by the dad into entering ISIS territory in Syria (vis Turkey, naturally), their lives for years, and their eventual escape to the Kurds and safety. I don't believe the mum's story, and won't join a shitfest with whoever does.

    Crock of Gold: A few rounds with Shane MacGowan

    Great doco by Julian Temple looking at the life of lyrical genius Shane MacGowan through old footage intercut with modern sit down conversations between the poetic songster and various people including Johnny Depp and Gerry Adams

    Although I think he does not look right with all his teeth restored. The dentist should have replaced them with porcelain replicas of rotted stumps just like his famous 1980s gnashers.

    Can't get you out of my Head Part 1: Bloodshed on Wolf Mountain - Adam Curtis - multi-parts, just started watching.

    He makes good but tendentious (and english) docos - lots of great old footage and food for thought..
    Though as a comment says "Woke up feeling weak, purposeless and misanthropic. This should cheer me up!"

    Very well done.

    The generated aerial shots/maps of the systems of trenches are a nice touch.

    ^Looks good

    The Way I See It

    Quite a moving portrait of Obama as a president of moral integrity from the Whitehouse photographer Souza

    You might not agree with his poitics and you might criticize his effectiveness at policy implementation but he was on the money as a character and a person as portrayed in this doco.

    It is 1.40 long but it might take you longer to watch it as I kept pausing the picture to admire the insightful portraits Souza created while on the White House staff.

    Looking for VH1 Classic Albums: AC/DC Back in Black.


    Was on yoootoob a year or so ago, but has since been taken down, besides others in the series being still up.

    Was very well done, if anybody is able to find it on a torrent or video hosting site much appreciated.

    Waltzing the Dragon with Benjamin Law


    This two part documentary is about the 'Chinese Australian experience' from one such- Law was born in Qld, of Cantonese parents. Fairly typical- 1.2mm aussies are of Chinese descent, and Chinese migration to Australia actually goes back to before gold rush times, Chinese trading with northernn Australia to before white settlement. I found it enjoyable viewing, and quite topical in these times when every Chinese student is a suspected spy! Part history, part travelogue, part sociopolitical doc, part Australiana.

    Hope this works OK where you are-

    Explore how opportunistic smuggling networks in Latin America turned into powerful and ruthless drug cartels with unprecedented power.

    Narco Wars (TV Series 2020–2021) - IMDb

    16Gb so if you don't have unlimited broadband or you're still on dial up you should look for a smaller rip of individual episodes.

    The Battle of the Somme looks good. I'll watch it a bit down the road after reviewing some works I have in my library. I seem to remember Barbara Tuchman doing a pretty good background in The Guns of August. Looking forward.

    You're pretty much guaranteed a decent documentary if you type 'Storyville' into a torrents site.

    I'm halfway through a four part one called 'College Behind Bars' about the Bard Prison Initiative, a college programme for US prisons.

    It was okay but I'm not sure I'd call it a documentary of the Somme. It follows the Manchester Regiment during the opening phase of the battle and yet it fails to mention the 19 mines that went off at zero hour. There were areas of good and bad along the front and even an area where the cavalry could have made a breakthrough. It was also the first time that the British used tanks, although too early and without enough concentration to be effective.


    TBH, I was a bit disappointed and much prefer the books of WW1 battles by Lyn Macdonald.

    Fishing For Love - How To Catch A Thai Bride



    tpb

    A godawful title, but I downloaded this anyway as it's under the 'Storyville' banner, which is usually a good sign. In fact this documentary appears to have been made by a collaboration between Denmark and Thailand, with the BBC supplying nothing except the terrible title.

    It's nothing like programmes you may have seen before on the same topic. It's a serious and sometimes moving look at what both parties are looking for in relationships between Danish men and mostly Isaan women.

    Pattaya figures prominently.

    The lives of these women, in Thailand and in Denmark, is given far more screen time than is customary. It offers a lot more insight than the prurient title suggests. The women's lives are bleak prior to marrying a farang and not exactly a bowl of cherries afterwards.

    One of the women recounts a story of having a sauce pan of boiling water thrown over her by her previous Thai husband. Her second marriage to her Danish husband ends in divorce. Perhaps the scars run too deep. Their last scene together could have been directed by Wong Kar Wai, it's so loaded with things unsaid.

    Well worth watching.

    Netflix has a new series about Britain's castles which I've managed to binge over the last few days.

    Warwick is fantastic.

    But a whole series on them?

    Hmm.

    I'd never heard of this until I listened to a podcast the other night.

    Warwick is featured!

    It's like a comforting blanket being put over me as I eat my chips and fish fingers and regress into childhood away from all the big meanies at work.

    Someone should make a doco of 80's/90's snack foods, and why they'd be illegal in most countries today.

    While it was remiss of me to not correct the Youtube-imposed embargo on displaying the title, it took you a minimum of 38 keystrokes and at least one mouse click to whinge when one click would have allowed you to decide as others have probably done.

    Anyway, for the benefit of any other fucking whingers, it's a documentary about two psycho scandihooligan twins that happened to have a mental breakdown on a motorway while a reality show film crew was in attendance.
