Bitter Lake

Postby realoldfart » Mon Jan 26, 2015 6:23 pm

This new long form documentary ( 2 hours, 18 minutes) from Adam Curtis is only available on BBC iplayer - they claim that because of its length it's too difficult to schedule on their regular channels.  I'm not too sure about that.

It's fascinating, like all his documentaries, though not that easy a watch; rather than me attempt to do it justice here's a link to the Guardian review:-

Now looka here...
I did not say I was a millionaire...
But I said I have spent more money than a millionaire!
Cause if I had kept all my money that I'd already spent,
I would've been a millionaire a looong time ago...
