New 'imagine' documentary on Cuba is worth a watch. Good history of the country and America's constant interference. Pretty inspiring (and also depressing) how young the rebels (Castor, etc) were when they took over. What have I done with my life???

Two-parter now on iPlayer.

British Sounds by Godard (1969). Speech so preoccupied with humiliation and victimhood so far from reality edited with shots of daily life to simply disprove it. Nearly 50 years on, the windrush generation are being deported and denied medical treatment. "Send them back." Becoming a reality.

NSFW Don't rewind from 18:27. Unless you want to see some new wave snatch.

Need another true-crime doc on the level of the Jynx, Making a Murderer etc. EG wasn't quite there despite being really engrossing subject matter.

if you like staircase listen to the podcast 'beyond reasonable doubt'. Gives a take from the otherside, very good podcast.
