I know about Ross Kemp on Gangs but it's Sky and not BBC.  :-\

Your welcome. When I came across it I thought it looked interesting. Never watched it though.

Have you ever seen the episode of Ricky Gervais's "Extras" with Ross Kemp in it, or any of Jon Culshaw's impressions of the show you asked about?

You'll never look at Ross Kemp the same way if you do.

Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.

I watched The Hobart Shakespeareans yesterday and I loved it. About this 5th grade teacher in Los Angeles. I love this guy and feel he should get the Nobel Prize.* You can rent it on DVD and watch a trailer at POV online.

*Of course, since he only teaches children and didn't invent a new Death Ray or something of that ilk, he'll not get one. Also, that's twice I wrote about love in this post; the documentary really affected me.

So funny.  I was about to post a list and then realized I did so on the prior page.  This is useful and we are always open to more.  There was a great series on money by Niall Ferguson, The Ascent of Money.

I guess you never heard of Yugoslavia. That was Death Ray 1.0.

The Death of Yugoslavia, good BBC documentary. They do not, however, make any mention of DR 1.0.

I have. Got it at a certain site; the name of which shall not be invoked at the moment. I mean, we're reformed pirates here, right?

Loving Lampposts. Cool little documentary: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1533081/
