All Watched Over By Machines Of Loving Grace
« on: May 28, 2011, 03:31:14 PM »
A series of documentaries by Adam Curtis, part one from last Monday available here http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b011lvb9.  Starts off with a glorious montage over the gentle loveliness of of Baby Love Child by Japanese popsters the Pizzicato 5 and slaps bang into Ayan Rand, a lady who could be described as anything but gentle and lovely.  Watch it if you can, it's got 16 days left on iPlayer and part two is this coming Monday.

Well these are all still available on the iPlayer here http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b011lvb9 for the time being, the last one aired last night.

I don't want to spoil it for anyone but at least if you aren't watching it live you won't be able to irritate people by tweeting about it 'live', making comments such as 'this is getting silly' and probably missing the entire point at the same time.  I'm having a little rant, can you tell....
