I enjoy documentaries both for what they show as they go along and for the genre itself.You have the British style, presented by a learned fellow in jeans walking along a beach, a meadow, a street, the dark side of the moon, whilst elucidating how the world turned out to be what it is. Or the American style with the disembodied steroid-enhanced gravel voice (unless we're talking about Michael Moore) going through discoveries by the number until we get to the one that left the whole community of scholars, scientists, or worker termites completely flabbergasted, a discovery impeccably timed to happen right after the next advertisement break. The journalistic variety emphasise how clandestine the program or film you're watching is. The more shaky the handheld or hidden camera is, the better the journalistic credentials.Are there any documentaries (or dramatisations) you have found interesting, and why?
I've seen a few 20's videos. A lot of western infrastructure was made then (or earlier, but the films/videos mostly started that decade).
Homo they definitely were, from what we now can pick out from their bones and tools, they were something else that what came before them.From the long-discarded idea of H. erectus as little more than a semi-monkey we have advanced to dramatisations and documentations like BBC's Planet of the Apemen episode 1, where H. erectus, not H. sapiens, was the top dog. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F7hfeICyyzs
I've always liked Nova.
On a lesser note they are better at ceremonial than your lot of amateurs!
They aren't here to defend themselves.
I am afraid and even many small nations can do better than marching like women.
I was on about routine ceremonial not that theatrical show business stuff from the US Marines.
It's all theatrics. I'm not impressed by a gaggle of automatons wherever they come from.
Straight to DVD.
