Just watched Icarus on Netflix about the Russain State doping, it's got the guy who came up with it involved, really good watch and makes you think the games really up the pole with international sport
"When the FA Banned Women" was on BBC4 recently. Claire Balding (who is, in my opinion, one of the best and most intelligent of contemporary sports journalists) on the rise and fall of women's football during and immediately after the First World War. A real eye-opener on the subject of a real injustice.
Ive watched quite a few over the last couple days.
'among the believers'. Interviews and on site filming with extremists in islamabad. Interesting look at the situation from different perspectives with some unbelievable views.
'el fin De ETA'. Interesting look at the efforts to bring their murdering to an end.
'the wolfpack', Is bizarre story. It features a group of film obsessed kids in New York who were basicaly imprisoned by their dad. Access to leave varied from 0 - 7 times per year and was forbidden on their own.
'the truth about alcohol'. A lot of it basicaly recovered common knowledge. Its made me consider my habits though.
