...kk, this music features predominantly in the film, hence me jamming Burial for mah furst teim. And it's a great pull, but really the diamond in the rough is the film, not the song. i wanted to jam the whole thing, but utube said "NO!!", so here's a link to it:
Also available on BBCi player, but only if you're in the UK:
...basically, we have Adam Curtis in the most esoteric of moods, two hours plus of long sweeping scenes, darting from decade to decade, from theme to theme, weaving a story, unweaving a lie.
Ever wondered why we're in the mess we're in now, as regards the middle east? Then watch this.
Curious if the war in Afghanistan was a massive waste of time, or not? Then watch this.

I've watched it twice already
Weirdly, the other window I've got open is for Bitter Lake on iplayer....
Liked the 1st bit. Sounded different to the 2nd but I'm probably wrong!
terrific piece of music. The YT film has been blocked :-(
Fuck da police...
Bitter Lake was marvellous — no one weaves archival footage quite like Adam Curtis!
