Started watching Mare of Easttown (Sky Atlantic). Early days but this could be a very nice little series based on the opening episode. Lots going on which should lead to a number of storylines, well acted and suitably small town America bleak.

The series ended last night. I thoroughly enjoyed it - with some nice twists along the way. Sadly it looks like there won't be a second series - which is a shame.

Documentaries about The Nailbomber (1999 London bombings) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt12939812/ and anarchist 'Unabomber: In His Own Words' (Ted Kaczynski ) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt11833494/. This is crime series but how the police works and the society&media in those times are interesting to watch.

Video about today's economy & shortages. Very informative and to the point I must say.

Watched a three part series Time (BBC). Would thoroughly recommend this excellent production - written by the brilliant Jimmy McGovern.

The programme was a difficult watch in places - set as it was in a prison with all that means.

The story largely followed a prisoner (Sean Bean) and a prison officer (Stephen Jones), and their lives over a two year period.

I can't overstate the quality of the script and the acting performances - to be expected from Bean and Jones, but also a strong supporting cast.

This was a gripping show.

Watched "The Red Baron" last night... romanticized tale of the German Ace that claims to be a realistic view, but I have my doubts. Scratch that... I have a LOT of doubts. The movie didn't mention how many of his victories resulted from shooting down observation planes either. Fun filled fluff... not particularly recommended, but the planes are nice.


It is an ok flick, with some interesting aerial work - especially the markings on the German aircraft are nice and some of the characters.
The story….well, on the level of most war movies.

Why do you emphasize that point on observation aircraft?

Sadly, Rhonda passed away several years ago. It's unlikely that she will reply to your question about her post from 10 years ago.

Just watched a documentary about first tank battles, including the first tank-on-tank action. Among commentators is the legendary David Fletcher.

You might also be interested in 'Disbelief' about the 1999 apartment bombings in Russia which stopped only after FSB agents were caught placing a sack of explosives in the basement of an apartment building, which they claimed was merely 'sugar' that was part of an 'exercise.' https://archive.org/details/Disbelief2004

You can also see on Youtube the reports from mainstream media about the terrorists who were caught in the act of trying to blow up the George Washington Bridge on 9/11/2001:

Speaking of very watchable - if you have access to the BBC or iplayer then you would do worse than to watch The Planets with Dr Brian Cox. Do I understand much of what he's talking about? No. But that does not stop what he's saying taking your breath away. I never knew Venus and Mars both once teemed with water.

This dude knows his stuff.... and it's fascinating.



warspite1

BBC4 have some really good documentaries. Hot on the heals of The Planets, Brian Cox presented Adventures in Space and Time. This a four-parter where he looks back at the programs he made in the last ten years to show how much more we've learned since.

His enthusiasm for his subject is so infectious. No idea what he's talking about half the time, but it's unmissable all the same!!

BBC4 is the mutts nutts.

I watched a program on Indian partition. This was a one-off program that sought to understand more about the real reason for the partition. Very interesting.

There is a six part series on BBC4 and iplayer called World War II Behind Closed Doors. First episode was about the NS Pact. Nothing ground-breaking but a very well put together first episode (and hopefully series).

I started watching Midway but had to break off. I got up to just after the attack on Pearl. I must admit I wasn't hugely impressed and the fact that I haven't felt the need to re-start it perhaps says it all. I mean it didn't look like its going to be in Pearl Harbor territory, but....

I no doubt will endeavour to finish the film and I hope it gets better.

I enjoyed the film. Some on this forum did not.

I would recommend you finish it up.

It was a better film than I expected. Especially small historical details. My biggest gripe was the air attacks were a bit over dramatized (so what, right). Overall I was mildly surprised at it's quality.

Handmaids, eh. So this is a documentary on body-rub parlours? Strange garb for that profession ...
