And that kidnapped Fallon Carrington.
I prefer reality stories that look like great fiction.
When it's so unbelievably dumb then it's hard to put yourself in their shoes and then the whole thing just evaporates in front of my very nose.
To be honest it looks like a NuDynasty plotline
With all the incest and aliens it's more like The Colbys really.
Whitney: Can I Be Me?
Absolutely love her.
This was a good follow up to American Meme. More on what life is like for the "Instagram generation" and the perils and pitfalls that are faced by teenagers today trying to navigate their way through it all. I didn't realize that Instagram now has over a billion people on it. I think it's also interesting how consequently, photography, be it a selfie or something more artistic, has now become an integral part of people's lives.
This was so powerful and moving. After a brutal attack Morad is suffering from such severe PTSD that he no longer speaks or can engage in any meaningful way. After being unresponsive for months his doctor recommends that either he be put in a mental institution or, as as last resort, that he try dolphin therapy at a centre far from his home. From his first day with dolphins he begins a healing journey, but he remembers nothing of his life before and the trauma that brought him there. It's quite an extraordinary story.
Delightful documentary chronicling the works and many talents of the wonderful Stephen Fry.
The Murder of Jill Dando
The Yorkshire Ripper Files - A Very British Crime Story
This was on BBC4 over three nights and the best documentary I've seen on Peter Sutcliffe. It highlights the real tragedy behind a lot of the killings was down to the police manhunt and how they didn't listen to some of the survivors, how they let the first few slip by because they were deemed as prostitutes (and who cares about them, attitude) plus further investigation, showed there was no evidence that Wilma McCann was a sex worker.
A look at the career of comic genius Barry Humphries a.k.a Dame Edna, with input from a host of celebrities including Kylie Minogue, Joan Rivers and Larry Hagman.
I watched yet another on Amanda Knox. Fascinated by this and can't make my mind up if she did it or not to this day.
I watched the one on Netflix, not sure if that's the one you watched, but that left me in no doubt that she didn't do it.
It's great that Netflix have so many Louis Theroux docs and are adding more all the time. Just watched this one which was just added. Illuminating as always.
Louis Theroux: Dark States - Sex Trafficking
Three Identical Strangers. Fascinating truth is stranger than fiction story.
It also raises several ethical questions.
Very good Elizabeth Taylor doc by the BBC.
First Contact: Lost Tribe of the Amazon. It's on Netflix if it's available in your country. An interesting documentary well worth a look.
Just discovered it's also on youtube
