South Bank Show documentary on the novelist, journalist, short story writer and willing participant in psychogeography, Will Self.
Krautrock: The Rebirth of Germany.
excellent documentary on some of the most transcendent music ever produced. featuring Can, Amon Düül II, Popol Vuh, Cluster, Neu!, Faust and more.
About a trailer park in Nova Scotia. Its rather campy with a story line about a couple of losers in a trailer park who just got out of jail and their adventures. They like to shoot of guns but they are just white trash hosers who don't mean to harm anyone as they drink and attempt to grow dope.
My favorite character is Bubbles who wears inch thick glasses backwards that make his eyes look huge. It's a good show to watch when you're trashed. The episode where one of them is offered $160 to buy hydroponics if he acts in a porno movie is especially hilarious.
Leahy, as the ex-cop trailer park security is especially funny.
wonderful series by Simon Reeve.

recent series, Indian Ocean should be available on BBC America. better still, purchase his DVDs.
on July 15th. The show has lost some of it's better production values and nice time lapse of New Mexico's landscapes and skys but the story is still relatively fresh after five years, which is hard to do.
Starting this Sunday at midnight you can watch/tivo the entire series. Amazingly, the commercial encourages people to record! The AMC channel has consistently provided some of the best new content starting with Mad Men and Breaking Bad about 6 years ago.
Amazing. Who is reponsible for turning around this sleepy cable channel known for John Wayne and old Westerns?
true British ingenuity at it's best.
brings a tear to the eye.
Best of the Sunday morning talking heads. He is a liberal who gives a lot of facts to back up his views. His commentaries are sharp and to the point and all over the political spectrum. He really went after China last week for human right violations in their own country and the hypocrisy of that country accusing the US on that subject.
That there is actually a (relatively) new program in the genre that would appeal to the 45-62 demographic is unusual. Like newspapers, this genre of news/commentary is aimed at the 62 and over crowd -- a dieing breed, if you'll excuse the bad pun.
I hope that his show has a long shelf life and gets moved to the 7pm slot on a Sunday evening.
what took it so long to spread it's erudite wings onto the cathode ray facilitator?
