Storyville - The trial of Ratko Mladic, grim.

What channel is that on?
BBC. Probably get it on iPlayer. I watched about 10 mins when it was on and recorded it. Grim is a good description of the few mins I saw. Amazing that it happened on our doorstep in the 90s.

Cheers.
Yes it was grim but also predictable. The Balkans was and still is a powder keg. Mladic was a very sinister and bloodthirsty "creature".
I look forward to watching the dramatisation of how this foul rat fared in the court.

I see that 650 men/women have already been convicted of war crimes in the Balkans,
83 have been convicted in the IC

After watching it I see that's it's a most welcome epilogue  to the first Storyville documentary on Srebrenica - A Cry from the Grave 1999
viewable on you tube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fliw801iX84
Unfortunately the  Bosnians did not  have a UN officer of the calibre  of commandant Pat Quinlan to protect them.

Yeah enjoyable nonsense. The 'movement's are particularly silly and slightly ruin a potentially great show imo.

It reminded me of an old visual PTQ gag - At a boardroom meeting the Chairman introduces the Treasurer who will deliver the annual results through the medium of dance🧚‍♀️
Anyone watched 'The OA' on Netflix?

Itís wired to the moon but strangely absorbing
Binge watched this with herself. Mad as a bag of spiders but I found myself always wanting to watch the next episode. I have to say I quite enjoyed both seasons so far.

We also watched Ricky Gervais' series 'After Life' recently. It really is an excellent show. One I would advise everyone to watch.

Have you worked out who "H" is yet?

Too obvious who they're suggesting is it not!

I believe there is one last series after this one so plenty of twists to come. It'll not be him.

Is it just me or are they using their getaway vechicles (Black Range rovers) as their daily mode of transport.

Hope so. I think it ruins it a bit if it's him.

I couldn't pick up who was on the 6th photo either that the woman id'd? Was that intentional or was I just being slow on the uptake though lol.

It can't be Hastings can it??

It would have to be a hugely incompetent criminal overlord that uses the first letter of his (her?) surname as their call sign.

Great show.

Why would a criminal mastermind not be able to pay his poxy bill at the Premier Inn??!!

Because he's spunked all his money on a divorce and black range rovers for the lads and lady to fly about in.

They can't make that the twist surely... As someone said H seems a bit obvious lol.

I read an alternative theory that it was Kate. If it's not Dunbar it has to be someone who's been prevalent in the first few series too you would think and most of them have either been arrested/murdered lol.

Is it just me who wishes that Line Of Duty would have a new storyline?

It kinda stretches the whole thing beyond the realms of even pretend realism that it would be someone within AC10 the whole time (and not the 6 people that have already been fingered as being the bent AC10 copper).

I'd love to have seen this series just have a story that wasn't related to Tommy Hunter's gang, where we find out that yet another AC10 person has supposedly been rogue this whole time.

I love the show, but wonder why they keeping going to this well.

But maybe I'm on my own.......
