    I'm two-thirds of the way through a totally compelling but very sensitively told three-part series, The Yorkshire Ripper Files: A Very British Crime Story, which is about a series of murders that took place between 1975 to 1981.

    The misogyny displayed towards the (many) victims by the police, the media and even the general public is breathtaking and led to even more deaths. I'd like to think attitudes have changed a lot since then, but I'm not sure they have.

    Wow. This blew my mind and made me cry. Anna Breytenbach communicates with animals telepathically, and as hard as that may be to believe, the documentary shows several examples of her being able to relay very specific details about these animals pasts that she could not have possibly known. Some sceptical scientists join her for some of these interactions, which include some pretty powerful moments, and in the end cannot deny the validity of her abilities. Highly recommended.

    I have not seen this yet but I do believe animals, domestic pets have an in-depth connection with their owners. Animals know when we are upset or ill or are in distress. A long while ago a friend of mine had done something silly while I was asleep at their flat. Their dog jumped on the bed I was sleeping in, which it never would have done. And started pawing at my face, and licking my face and barking until I got up to see what had happened. The dog was alerting me because it could not waken it's owner. The dog saved it's owners life.

    Amazing. Yes, they absolutely do have a very strong connection with their owners. My friends had a similar experience when their baby daughter was having a seizure and their dog immediately alerted them.

    The channel the doc is from has some great documentaries and I'm now just in the middle of watching this one about unlikely friendships between humans and animals, and they also have some good ones about unusual animal friendships. Really fascinating.

    The Man With The Seven Second Memory. Fascinating, sad, but ultimately very inspiring, especially the relationship between him and his wife. It's incredible what love can endure.

    The best documentary series I've ever seen, OJ: Made in America, is currently being repeated by the BBC and it's also on the iPlayer. It's an epic saga, jaw-droppingly fascinating and kind of mind-bending. It's about seven hours long too, so it's perfect for these times.
