Terry Pratchett: Back in Black. Equal parts documentary, tribute and biopic, it had both me and the mister, decades-old STP fans, a mess by the end.

I bet someone will put it up on YouTube soonish...

This documentary may be a bit too slow for some people, but it’s a fascinating study of the irreversible and unintended consequences of certain actions and ideas, especially when those actions and ideas are of a violent nature. A cautionary tale for would be rebels and revolutionaries, as well as for writers. Currently streaming on Netflix.

"The Forgotten Kingdom" - film about Caucasian Albania and its Church
It's a Polish movie, but with English subtitles.

Watching several History Channel Gangland episodes.

Civilisation by Kenneth Clark. Nice, but a bit boring at times.

I love the 100 Years of Beauty series. I find the makeovers fascinating, and the research behind the looks even more so. My favourite episode, however, is this one, where the stakes jump up from makeup to body art.
