    This is a documentary about americas destructive foreign policy. Im not really one for getting involved in all that anti american anti capitalist mumbo jumbo but is well worth watching. Ive also, without knowing it, hung out with the producer for a week or so and he is a wise wise man.

    I really liked life by David Attenborough, haven't got round to watching frozen planet yet.

    I tend to watch all sorts of shit on the discovery channel, there is always something good on. I quite like deadliest catch!

    The Brass Eye documentary on the drug craze 'Cake' that swept the nation a few years back was very insightful.
