BBC documentary on photojournalist Don McCullin.
Worth the licence fee in its self,Powerful/horrendous/shocking I didn't even realise he covered some of the worst atrocities in Africa / Lebanon.
If you can get hold of watch.

Rankin Faces Death - translating the stories of incredible people touched by death, and processing them through the medium of photography.
Not as powerful  but still worth the watch.

How to make money selling drugs
Reminds me of natgeo drug inc a little, just with celebrities and they aren't focused on one drug but the drug business as a whole. I haven't watched it yet, I think it will be interesting.

The other link might get us in trouble, tarascon. Members can look for the film if they want to watch it.  :)

more than honey

very interesting because 1. I like honey 2. the narrators voice is very soothing to listen. 3. learning about how honey is made and how mass production of honey is killing the bee population.

I get annoyed if the youtube button doesn't work. 
I thought I knew how to fix it:
Button works for that one, then:
doesn't work for this one: 
So I try to take out the https://  or the www. and neither approach works.

edited by dweez: The YouTube tags don't work with HTTPS.  I just changed "https://" to "http://" and it works.  Alternately, you can just use the youtube tags with just the "code" in the URL.  For example, the second one would look like so:
Code: [Select]
