    Documentaries



    I haven't seen many good documentaries of late but Micheal Jacksons documentrary with Martin Bashir reminded me of one of the weirdest and compelling documentaries that was broadcast. If anyone has a good documentary feel free to broadcast. Tickettout I don't mean any redtube ones[img]smileys/wink.gif[/img]I heard that there was an excellent programme of late about an Irish-American that pumped money into University of Limerick but haven't seen it. Anyway here is an excellent quality stream of the Jackson-Bashir programme. I personally think Bashir did a lot of damage to such a weak charachter. It has been said that it was this documentary that send him over the edge.

    What sets them apart from the rest is that you cannot divorce the team from the crowd. They are as one and the support of an entire province is the catalyst that energises them and the team feed off the red roars.

      There is a class documentary by Channel four about the Frazier v. Ali
      fight in Manilla, well worth checking out.
      It is useless to attempt to reason a man out of a thing he was never reasoned into.

      Every plan I have is the best plan in the room. Everybody get quiet and listen to it, and everybody will win

                      I think I saw that recently, weird juxtaposition that Frazier was mad at his corner for pulling him out, yet in the other corner Dundee was having to try to talk Ali into carrying on. Feck me those 2 did some serious, serious damage to each other that day.
                      Did you play in the Garden of Eden?
                      Were the goalkeeper\'s gloves to you tossed?
                      For it seems to me you\'re the reason,
                      You\'re the reason why paradise lost.

                        the power of nightmares is a great one. very interesting look at the rise of islamo-fascism and the american far right christian and neo conservative movementsover the last fifty years or so. yer man adam curtis who made it has another one called the century of the self or something like that, haven't seen it though.

                          He also did The Trap about the rise of neo-liberal thought and individualism in the west after the 2nd World War, it's about 6 hours in total I think but it's excellent.

                            good idea for a thread. anyone got any decent animal documentaries?
                            saw one the other day on 'deep sea animals'.. there's some alien like creatures living 4000 metres below sea level

                            here's some vicious amazonian fish
