Jimmy Savile: A British Horror Story 0

Jimmy Savile: A British Horror Story

I think I got a bit confused here, as there’s been loads of media rhetoric about the Steve Coogan-led dramatisation of the Savile story: and that’s what I was interested in.  It’s probably no...

The Beatles: Get Back

This documentary-of-the-decade was far too good to bother with my usual collection of sentences here.  So I wrote a whole post, instead. 👍👍👍

We Are the Champions 0

We Are the Champions

I can’t recall what drew me to this – although my watching history does seem to point to the fact that if left to my own devices, I’ll sniff out odd documentary series.  In...

Horizon 0

Horizon

I didn’t watch the *entirety* of Horizon – it was more that BBC iPlayer had a handful of episodes up to look at: so it was a total no-brainer to watch 1981’s Richard Feynman...

Pretend It’s a City

I suspect I wildly missed the point of this. Lauded as “must see” by some ppl in my circles, I gave this a good solid attempt at watching (3 episodes), but ultimately found it...

The World According to Jeff Goldblum

Nobody can Jeff Goldblum like Jeff Goldblum – so I’ve no idea what the pitching process for this National Geographic series was, but it features Jeff doing his inimitable thing on a series of...

High Score 0

High Score

Multifaceted documentary about the development of video games through history, and interviews with some of the industry’s more notable figures. Somehow finishes up on Nolan Bushnell of Atari, whose genius can be summed up...
