    Tears in the Amazon 2010 - very rare to get. About a tribe who are stark naked. I found it fascinating.

    Interesting but my version is 1h 27 minutes & 39 seconds - picture quality is very good. Starts with a (BIG) snake moving from right to left. Directors: Jin-Man Kim, Kim Hyeon-Cheol (South Korea) English Subs.

    I'm thinking 'Honest Dave' had a touch of autism ? Other than that it completely had me transfixed throughout. I couldn't envisage ever being that helpless with the outlook that bleak.

    Yes. At the time I didn't think autism, just differently wired. Either that or emotions were so massively suppressed that he'd be a breakdown waiting to happen - which he clearly wasn't.

    Clearly that level of detachment is an asset in that kind of job. I can't imagine having a job with that type of restriction and control on my environment being a dream career but it clearly was for him............and the money's pretty good so he seemed to have it all planned out.

    Sarah Payne - The Untold Story


    Back in 2000 an eight year old girl was abducted and murdered. There are interviews with her mother, brothers and sister. The father of the child could not cope with the grief and died a broken man. Thankfully the killer was caught and is serving a very long sentence though not long enough in my opinion. God i do sometimes wish we executed murderers.


    It really is a heartbreaking story and it is not often i fill up hearing stories of strangers tragedies but this programme really got to me.


    Was on ITV so will be available on catch up.

    For anyone who is interested, next Sunday Louis Theroux is revisiting the Westboro Baptist Church for a second time. Arguably the best of his documentaries have been filmed with these nutters so I'm looking forward to it.

    I've just happened to have watched these over the last couple of nights on iPlayer, good viewing I have to admit. They're absolutely mental, but it's quite sad that they brainwash children into their twisted belief.

    So is it a repeat or is this the 3rd visit not 2nd?

    Third visit mate. The two you watched were going back a good few years now. Obama was president.

    Aye, they decided he was the devil on earth didn't they :laugh:

    I'll watch it but don't expect anything to have changed. The 2nd youngest girl (cant remember her name she was 21 in the first one) was even more brainwashed and willing to sprout the shite of the rest in the second one.

    It's a shame Louis didn't try to push her a bit more in that first visit as I'm sure he was close getting her to open up, but he didn't insist. Think she's beyond help now like the others.

    From what I can gather a few have changed significantly but we will see.

    Anyone watched the BBC documentary on incels? Pretty good. Another highlight that some people are warped by certain communities on the internet.

    I got about half way through and had to turn it off. The gimp in that mask needs a serious slap and the disrespect shown towards women was sickening.




    Only connection I have with Ice Hockey is playing NHL 96 on the Megadrive. But this is very good.

    Watched a Horizon doc about two proton beam therapy centres being built in Manchester and London that really help target and kill cancer in kids. Fascinating and heartwarming stuff.

    More lighthearted content than most of the stuff posted in here but enjoyable nonetheless. Documentary on 'Airsoftfatty', the kid behind that viral meme/video of the fat kid having a light saber battle that goes wrong. It's oddly fascinating.
