Really enjoyed this Storyville documentary about James 'The Amazing' Randi and his life's work including debunking 'faith healers' and 'psychics' like Uri Geller and Peter Popoff.

Thanks for that screenexile. I wasn't aware of that documentary.I recommend the JREF, Randi's Blog and Skeptoid to anyone interested in opposing quackery, superstition and scams against the vulnerable and the gullible.

Just watching it now. Excellent. Peter Popoff was something else.

'The Internet's own boy' about Aaron Swartz. Could be worth a watch for those interested in the power of the Internet and the fear that it seems to instil within the American Government.

The Tale of Gatti-Ward

Documentary on the Arturo Thunder Gatti/Irish Micky Ward trilogy. Reckoned to contain some of the best rounds of boxing ever witnessed.
Excellent documentary, covering the fights and the aftermath. Very sad at the end.

Watched a documentary last night on TG4 about the making of the film Moby Dick in Cork back in the day. Excellent, made better by the fact I just chanced on it while channel hopping.

Part of a series which I am now taping.

I have to say they are some channel for those type of programmes.

There's a reportedly fantastic documentary about the drug war called Cartel Land out there. If anyone knows where to get a copy, I'd be much obliged.
