Around eight years ago there was a guy in the UK who was falsely accused of rape. He realised the consequences for his future so he basically had a goodbye party, got a new identity and moved to the other side of the planet. It’s an incredibly extreme solution - abandoning your friends, family and entire identity, but better than suicide.

No, the BBC had a guest on the This Week show and this bit of video was used as an advert for the show to let people know what the whackjob would be talking about in her section and also as an intro to her slot.
For those in the UK the show itself is here: [link]
Between the 2 other guests, Ed Balls and Michael Portillo and the host himself, Andrew Neil, they were quite sympathetic in their approach to it, but they took the time to point out time after time that denying facts and denying statistics were all quite pointless. Bergdorf got some airtime, but only came out of it looking quite foolish.
I think this is it: BBC Life - I found a clip from the show of them eating gannets and the description talks of the pelicans regurgitating half-digested birds back to their young.
Can only be viewed in the UK - someone let me know if that's the right one!
It's from a BBC comedy sketch show called "Famalam".
"Renshaw also admitted threatening to kill Det Con Victoria Henderson, who was investigating him for other matters.".
Not mentioned in the article, but on the main One O'Clock news was why DC Henderson was investigating Renshaw.

"Who (Henderson) was investigating him (Renshaw) for grooming young boys for sex....."
Once again these fucking Nazi bigots seem to be caught up in sex abuse of kids, yet they seem to only want to focus on the 'moose lamb' cunts that do it.
I fucking doubt we'll see any of the brigading cunts in here if this twat is convicted of this - I wonder why.....
You have to have a compatible TV [link]
It's strange that they don't just go off the reported resolution in the browser, but that's DRM for you, so many people with 4k monitors missing out.
It's a shame that they don't target 1080p 50 fps at 20k bitrate for us plebs. 720p 50 fps at 5k bitrate just looks so bad. Also streamlink has been broken so now I can't watch it in my external media player.
Please do not watch 'To the bone'! It is a really inaccurate, stereotypical and trivialised portrayal of having an eating disorder.
Please watch Louis Theroux's 'Talking to anorexia' ( Free on iplayer: https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b09d5nk2/louis-theroux-talking-to-anorexia)
As someone who has an eating disorder, this doc is really accurate and unbiased. I was even treated at some of the hospitals mentioned. I feel Louis does a really great job of ignoring any preconceived ideas of eating disorders and actually listens to the patients. In doing so, you can see that these disorders run really deep and often centre around control rather than 'being pretty or skinny' as 'To the bone' would have you believe.
I think Carnage is the best take on this. If people haven't seen it, it's a mockumentary set in 2067 where everyone is vegan and is explaining to the youth of the day how we went from eating other animals to being a compassionate species. It's also hilarious. Available on iPlayer for those in the UK or with a VPN: https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p04sh6zg/simon-amstell-carnage
Louis Theroux did an interesting documentary that featured a lot about this called "Edge of Life", highly recommend it. Basically though, the US goes further with cancer treatment than a most countries are willing due to the unlikelihood of success and the pain/trauma to the patient.

This is too stupid to be real.
The Army have been helping the Ambulance Service in England for so long now that there's an entire episode of a BBC documentary series dedicated to it, and no great fuss is made since sane people recognise the service is hugely overstretched.
When it happens on a smaller scale for a shorter time in Scotland however, Zoomers seem to imagine it's the End of Days.
I assumed this was already posted but couldn't find it anywhere so here you go I guess
here's a direct link to the first episode (but i'm not sure if access is available outside the UK)
Watch this: he married a 15 year old and slept with a bunch of kids around the same age (14 - 15). He also is reportedly keeping teenage sex slaves in his home.
And here's a Youtube link if you can't view the BBC video because of where you are:
> The thing that annoys me the most about this is the whole WTO argument fall back never came up in the actual debate yet Brexiters pretend that every single Brexiters voted in unison with it and therefore we have to do it.
I've suspected this for a good while and yesterday I finally got a concrete example.

About the 30 minute mark (just about to dash out, soz no exact time) Martin Daubney the Brexit Party candidate freely admits that this point came up in the debates.
Problem is it was from Cameron and others on the remain side as a dire consequence of leaving.
I can't recall any winning side in politics taking a warning from the losing side and then whole heartily adopting it as their core ideology.
This is fucking madness.

Absolutely ridiculous, such an antiquated and infuriating rule these clubs have. There is no excusable reason to not allow women into a snooker club. Good on Rebecca Kenna for taking a stand.
I can't find a clip, but last night BBC Newsnight ran a piece saying of the 105 Instagram accounts that directed racial abuse against Rashford, Saka, and Sancho, 59 accounts came from outside the UK, just 5 within the UK, and the rest couldn't be identified.

It really is about time the BBC cancelled Have I Got News for You.
It's become so terribly insipid over the years. If it had any edge back in the 90s/early 2000s, it's long gone: These days, I feel like I'm watching Countdown mixed with You've Been Framed.

From Years and Years
>The north pole melted. Like, it's gone. You should tell people about that
Well, yes, I could - but I did.
There's not much point any more.
Oh, don't say that.
No, but really, no, like we keep saying
you've got ten more years to sort out climate change,
you've got ten more years to sort out flooding,
you've got ten more years to sort out the rainforest,
We've been saying that for 30 years.
But it's too late.
We've run out of time. Everyone knows it.
You can recycle and campaign and go on marches.
We ARE going to flood and burn and starve.
And we don't die. I'm not saying the human race is going to carry on living on plateaus.
Like sheperds - little villages, maybe with a computer in a hut - you can go and visit once a week, and then go back
to growing your little patch of corn.
You might be digging out some rocks and singing Elvis to yourself - or the Beatles
But you won't know who they are any more.
Just folk songs from long ago.
On the 6 oclock news today she suggested it was this NI raise or nothing (along with opposition "bellyaching").
"Boris Johnson has chosen the risk of an imperfect solution rather than the risk of doing nothing at all"
Approx 8min 40sec to hear about bellyaching and not considering alternatives (though her segment started before that)

From what I've heard from CW experts (such as 'Hamish de Bretton-Gordon' on 'BBC Newsnight' tonight), Novichoks are very persistent nerve agents and last for months.
You are the one making unsubstantiated claims actually so it's on you to provide proof but on that very episode go to about 4 minutes in and you can watch them go to a Westminster corespondent and talk about the PM's approach

BBC disagrees :When you watch a programme online, either live or on demand, this is known as streaming. Downloading is saving the programme to your device temporarily and watching it when you're not connected to the internet.
The Cornwall: This Fishing Life BBC2 series is an "interesting" watch if you want to see turkeys voting for Christmas. Six episodes.
It's an unpoliceable/ uncontrollable border, always has been, always been will be.
Policing rests on consent of those being policed. The people being policed have to accept the legitimacy of those who are policing them for it to work.
If you go to any village either side of the border and ask anyone about that border and they'll probably tell you that it never should have existed in the first place. Here is the dilemma for the UK government, how do you police and enforce controls along a border when the people who live along it have absolutely no desire for it to exist? Even during the Troubles the British army could never fully control it. They'd block up a crossing in rural Fermanagh or somewhere and literally within days it'd be open again. The locals would have removed the barricade themselves. There's a good documentary on iplayer which looks at the border. You should watch it if you can/have time.
The border counties of Ulster is where Brexit is exposed. How can you take back control of your borders when the only border you have is one you physically cannot control?
It's a 3 part series. Part 1 was on Polyamoury and came out a couple of weeks ago (https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0br9vrx/louis-theroux-altered-states-1-love-without-limits)
Part 3 is out next week and looks like it's about paid adoption.
I'm guessing this is from the 07 Oct edition of BBC Question Time. It's UK locked on the bbc website (so you'll need a VPN if you're elsewhere), but it might exist in other places.

For those who can watch iPlayer, there's a three part series on her which is fascinating.
"Britain's Biggest Warship"
Can highly recommend the BBC documentary "Shadow Commander: Iran’s Military Mastermind" about General Soleimani from last March. Incrediblely detailed and gives a (in hindsight somewhat ironic) great picture of why exactly Soleimani was on the list of targets that the military presented to Trump.
You should be able to watch it here with the use of a VPN, though I haven't personally checked as Danish TV were nice enough to buy the right to restream it.
Iplayer has so much potential, even with its apparently small catalogue of programmes.
It's just quite clumsily implemented in my opinion.
I'm sure there are other issues.
And at the same time, no more F1 live races on free to air TV in the UK. Apart from Silverstone. Just the highlights after a race. Thanks Bernie for selling all the rights to Sky.
This could lead to much bigger Formula E audiences in the UK and F1 dropping off.
There's an interesting BBC documentary about the Virgin Formula E team which is a good introduction, watched it last week. [link]
BBC iplayer full doc.
Interesting look at the continuous wars in the DR Congo from the perspectives of four people: a young army officer Colonel Mamadou Ndala, a tailor in a refugee camp, a woman who deals illegally in gemstones and a government whistle blower. There are quite graphic scenes in throughout as the film maker follows government troops lead by Mamadou Ndala fighting rebels in 2013.
If you haven't already watched the documentary <em>The Mole: Undercover in North Korea</em> I heartily recommend it!
It's on iPlayer or if you look around reddit you can find "other sources" that can be viewed outside of the UK.
The subject matter sounds pretty dry and boring - but it is genuinely riveting. A Danish nobody infiltrates a "Friends of North Korea" group over a number of years and eventually visits NK where he meets some higher-ups. In the end he and another Dane (ex-French Foreign Legion, handsome, charismatic - portraying a dodgy oil billionaire) set up an insane $50 million arms and drugs deal which would include the North Koreans building a secret underground weapons factory for them on an island.
Same like with dislike of Israel and antisemitism. In-practice, there is considerable overlap between the two, and if one strongly disapproves of Israeli policies, he will likely dislike Jews. Sentiments "Israel is an abomination" and "Jews are the best thing ever" can only coexist when people switch on their doublethink.
Russian government is also not the only thing explicitly and commonly attacked. Russian society is attacked. BBC did several videos about life of black people in Russia during the World Cup. They didn't find anything spectacular (despite several attempts), but their intent was pretty clear. Here is another [one], didn't watch it (although Sterligov was invited, presumably to represent the Russian mindset), but BBC's intent is likewise very clear.
Russian history is under attack (basically every film and newspaper article about USSR published in the West).
It's a very strange expectation for Russians not to take it personally, when short of being called "subhuman", everything goes.
Not sure if you're joking, but that's Amber Rudd, the Home Secretary who resigned over Windrush - pretty much the only negative consequence for the government over the entire scandal.
Her resignation was included in the excellent BBC dramatisation last night, which I assume was the trigger for this post.
You'll need a BBC account to watch it on the BBC site but here is the link to the video.
Ultimately, it sounds like they aren't factoring in the plot from the previous entries. Sure, it's post Brexit, but the real world doesn't have entire cities that run on a single computer system running rampant with hackers, gangsters, govt. officials, terrorists, etc. It's just a bunch of people talking about things they know nothing about.

Here is Arsenal vs Everton.
For those in the UK I would highly recommend the Fever Pitch documentary series on the BBC. It goes over the formation of the premier league and episode one focuses on our first PL title
Ah yes, Peter Pan Goes Wrong. For those of you in the UK (and those of you with access to BBC iPlayer through, ahem, other means), definitely check out The Goes Wrong Show. Six more excellent plays by these guys.
A 2008 documentary on Nazi-Soviet collaboration has just popped up on iPlayer, contains some novel titbits and interviews. Send it to every tankie on your naughty list.
> Matt Hancock: current health secretary and in charge of the NHS.
The NHS is in a big scandal this week, after the exposure of physical, psychological, and sexual abuse at a hospital for vulnerable adults. It's possible that some of the fallout will land on Hancock.
> Gove likes to compare himself to Tyrion Lannister from Game of Thrones, in fact here's him talking about why Tyrion is his favourite character.
The guy whose victory over Stannis was based on listening to historical and scientific experts. The guy who went on to help a continental human rights crusader conquer Westeros. The guy who betrayed his queen when he realised how much damage her policies would do to his country.
Clearly Gove admires Tyrion for showing the qualities Gove lacks.

Encouraging turn around for Starmer before and after the focus group. The more he does of these, the more of a chance I think there might be.

I came across a good series on iPlayer after watching LoD that follows organised crime detectives in Manchester: [link] (the team is called MIT too, no DCI Davidson though…)
Really interesting to see a real life investigation after hearing OCG mentioned so many times. They’re nasty pieces of work!
> When someone in the audience said they don't want her becoming Home Secretary, Diane looked as though she knew he was right - she isn't fit to be Home Secretary
She did respond by listening to him and then smiling to herself as he said it but actually if you watch it carefully at the point that she started smiling he hadn't said anything about her, all he had said was that what worried him more than Brexit was that if there was a general election and Labour got in (audience starts cheering, she smiles)
So she wasn't responding to anything he said about her personally at that point. She was either smiling at the broadly aimed insult insult (which at that point was that that Labour could get in, becasue he hadn't completed the sentence) or, more likely, was listening to what he said and then started smiling as the audience cheered at what he said (which again, the time they started cheering was just that Labour might get in)
When they interviewed him on Beyond 100 Days (~49 min mark)there was no "innuendo", simply questions about men's mental health. How much airtime do the BBC have to give him before these people are satisified?
In the BBC documentary Status Wars One Summer in Bristol there's clearly some other marketing/social media manager who is in charge of the Twitter account.
The BBC don't have a 4K broadcast channel anywhere and never have.

If you're in the UK or have a VPN you can access every series of Blackadder, including the Y2K special, on BBC iPlayer for free.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m0004292/the-graham-norton-show-series-25-episode-2 At 29min 28 seconds "its really exciting to be watching it, for me its coming to an end, its ending and I think there will be some incredible sequences and stuff...then he goes "I woke up last night and had a genuine panic attack about it, suddenly its was like 8 years, and its climaxing and what if we've messed it up. I had one of those, but I think its going to be brilliant.
This part of the interview is not on posted on youtube. Maybe I'm over reading into it - but it was the second time I'd heard him say he woke up with a panic attack.
Day after day, it's like the news cycle has lost a grip of itself, careening into a death-spiral of extreme likelihoods versus impossibilities. By regurgitating the panic of the political class, it has become a whirling dervish of conflicting statements, one statement one day, another opposing statement the next.
I believe this is pretty close to Hypernormalisation.
Was it 'Out of the Ashes'? Still available on iPlayer - I remember watching it at the time and following the team's rise from Division 4 (maybe 5?) of the World Cricket League all the way to the WC qualifier and then the World T20 shortly afterwards

The Football Association of Wales is older than the Welsh Parliament, the National Library, the Welsh Rugby Union, the National Eisteddfod, the National Museum, and the University of Wales.
From this which was very good, and I've been saying for decades that football is our national sport anyway. The out-of-touch types at BBC Wales and the Western Mail have very effectively gaslighted everyone to believe rugby is bigger in Wales though.
Did you watch Newsnight last night? About 5 minutes into the program. Chart showing how many kids are in schools this lockdown compared to the lockdown in March. The numbers are high, which means it's being transmitted more around schools, and it also means parents are in work. The chart just before that one looks at transport use, which is up. This isn't a lockdown. This is a combination of some of the tier restrictions.
There is no Internet censorship here by the government, only some content blocked by producers/distributors themselves, one example is https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer that only in the UK
!ping UK just saw this Liberal Democrat ad on the BBC earlier tonight. Honestly suprising to actually hear a party broadcast when there isn't a general election announced.
Unfortunately for the Lib Dems the ad is narrated by Vince Cable so most watchers will probably have tuned him out by 30 seconds in.
Weird how long it’s been on iPlayer. Unless they’ve taken it down and reuploaded it, it’s been there for a year or so.
Maybe burying a 3 hour film in the depths of iPlayer is their way of being balancing out the hourly Tory PPBs and thus, technically, being impartial?
You say that like the link between Labour and Lassaad Laouini is contrived and remote. But it's not. He was chosen as one of the people featured in a Labour party election broadcast shown ten days ago. Here it is on BBC iPlayer:
>Party Election Broadcasts: Labour - English Local Elections: 10/4/2018
Lassad Louini's appearance starts at 2 minutes 36 seconds.
Presumably, like all the "typical voters" who appear in party election broadcasts, he's meant to be someone many potential voters can relate to.
When a person has views like "Hitler burned the Jews for his people but [Mubarak] burned his people for the Jews", then the message that "People like Lassaad vote Labour" stops being a good one for Labour to send.
Yeah i didnt want to underplay the hideous panel process (Adam Curtis: Cant get you out of my Head episode 4).
Yes, the trans community is diverse and they express themselves in diverse and complex ways - just like society at large.
But if its not essentially a sexist stereotype, then what is it trans people actually transition to? because gender is not biological, and they are not changing their biology - what have they changed?
Mark Fisher talks about it in Capital Realism: There is no Alternative? might be worth Ctrl F some of the words or terms that came up in your discussion to see if they are explained in the book. If you can access the BBC, Adam Curtis's new documentary explores how we've created a dream world (consumerism in late stage capitalism) to deal with the chaos and touches on how "it's easier to see the end of the world than the end of capitalism". They might be able to give you a deeper understanding of their mind set and how "capitalism is too strong".
Check their understand of socialism and capitalism is correct, they may misunderstand something about socialism that makes it more possible. They may think capitalism is more than what it is.
On the other hand, there is a strong likelihood that Capitalism will usher in societal collapse due to the climate catastrophe. But keep in-mind (some) people will survive and adapt and the survivors would probably think twice before trying Capitalism again.
Additionally, Socialism is a form of Post-Capitalism but Post-Capitalism isn't always Socialism. There are many progressive Heterodox (economic and Political) schools of thought that paint alternatives to capitalism but aren't necessarily socialist. Just getting them on a page of "an alternative is possible" is better than "there is no alternative".
Yeah - I don't know where in the world you are but this BBC documentary on Murdoch is amazing viewing - https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episodes/m000kxw1/the-rise-of-the-murdoch-dynasty

Funnily enough the BBC broadcast this documentary last week:
Series 12's "Nikola Tesla's Night Of Terror" is an often overlooked historical episode , and while a downgrade from Vincent and the doctor , it's 100% worth the watch.
Watch this for an eye-opening glimpse in the state or mental health treatment in the UK:
I would not recommend watching it if you're in a depressive mood atm
It’s on iPlayer if you’re in the UK. You can also find most of the episodes on Dailymotion.

If you're really interested, there's a current BBC series Thatcher: A very British Revolution which covers the whole battle with the wets. It's been pretty good so far, two episodes in. There's a brief cameo of an incredibly young Andrew Neil covering the 1979 budget.

It's showing at 9:30pm GMT today (Sunday the 11th), which if I'm not doing it totally wrong, means it'll show around 4:30pm in NH. You can watch it then (and afterwards, I hope) if you have a VPN with a UK location.
Not exactly sure this is a success.

I agree with this. You should check out the film carnage by Simon Amstell, its set about 50 years into the future from now when the world has become vegan and looks back at the times we are living in and how terrible it was.

Panorama aired a documentary in the UK a few days ago - Smartphones: The Dark Side.
>People are all increasingly glued to their smart phones and consumed by social media, but why? Panorama reporter Hilary Andersson tracks down tech insiders who reveal how social-media companies have deliberately developed habit-forming technology to get people hooked. A former Facebook manager tells the programme: 'Their goal is to addict you and then sell your time' and the creator of the 'like' button warns of the dangers of social-media addiction. Panorama investigates the science behind the lure of technology, and shows how behavioural science has been used to keep people endlessly checking their phones.
