The top is about a junkie

The second an expose on grooming and the last is about a bloke too fat to fit get out of his front door so they have to take the side off his house.


None of them are great

The Paradise lost trilogy docus are on youtube (west mephis 3); and the West of Memphis docu is on netflix. No the happiest of tales, but captivating to say the least.

Odd case. Jason Miskelley's lawyer is a defendant for the crims on current BBC documentary Life and Death Row.

I like watching documentaries made about reasonably well known issues but, told from 'the other side's point of view.


Here is a short take on the Arab view [Qatar] of American/Israeli relations and of course Palistine: http://www.aljazeera.com/programmes/specialseries/2017/03/occupation-american-mind-170304122330451.html


Moving on,


This one is about a subject that has always fascinated me: Why do young American black people join gangs and kill each other? This documentary gives a decent if one sided account of the history of it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vdv08c0aiTE&t=3017s&list=LLiaDx_2d_p0EFtAF_uhTXyg&index=70


A nice three part set [part 1 here] on British art of the 20th century - almost all of which I'd never known of: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-jUsdN1HKLk&t=1s


Finally, this is my favorite Adam Curtis documentary - explains his view of freedom in the modern world: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nSVlPlnB8wI&list=FLiaDx_2d_p0EFtAF_uhTXyg&index=6
