The Death of Yugoslavia. Excellent 6 part BBC documentary from the 1990s about the break up of Yugoslavia


#22

Midnight run. Brilliant. Love that film.


#23

One of the best Irish films that rarely gets a mention. Aidan Quinn was excellent.


#24

I know it’s recent enough This is England film and successive series.


#25

Jim broadbent any human heart. Book was great.


#26

As poignant as it is funny.


#27

Watching ‘Wild Wild Country’ on Netflix at the moment. 6-part documentary series based on a true story of how a religious sect in India upped sticks and tried to build their own city in the wilds of Oregon in the early '80s, taking over a tiny rural town in the process. Mad stuff Ted.


#28

It’s brilliant. Tragic story. What people will do for power…

The postmodern world where nothing is real. That Jeremy guy, with the babe magnet handle @xelnia, is thorough.


#31

For a documentary, ‘The Greatest Field Game in the World’ was wonderful. Watching Ramie Dowling making a hurl- a labour of love! There was a set of documentaries called ‘Hands’ - about Irish trades such as basketry. They were absolutely excellent. Very old though! They are on YouTube. Here is one:


#32

“The Funeral Murders” about the 1988 fortnight of terror at two funerals in Milltown Cemetery in Belfast


#33

Excellent new doc about Andre the Giant from HBO . Must watch for fans of that wrestling era but also a good watch to relive the myth of the man . It’s available online


#34

In keeping with current events I would recommend the BBC drama threads. It’s about two hours long and almost s documentary. Saw it when broadcast and then again a few years ago. Couldn’t sleep,after either time.

The 4th act, about the ballymun regeneration, which was on tv3 recently, is a good one too.


#35

In keeping with current events? What drama threads?


#36

#37

In fairness it might have done Sheffield a bit of a favour…:wink:


#38

Where can I watch that? Was it on RTE?


#39

It was on BBC, I forgot to record it so if you go to MVGroup website, you can download it.

I’ve actually found that online but I can’t bring myself to watch it after your review of it before :open_mouth:
