    Spike Lee’s “When the levees broke”, his documentary about hurricane Katrina.
    Watched that a few (?) years ago. It's excellent.

    If you want to go deeper, try David(The Wire) Simon's drama Treme.

    Did he write the book that inspired the Wire? I’ve a vague notion that I have a copy next to “Infinite Jest “ by DFW in my Just about to read pile of books.

    As a slightly too late alert, Sky Arts are showing KT Tunstall ‘s tribute to Ivor Cutler.

    I've just finished part 1 of 3 of Fear City on Netflix.

    Very good so far. It's about the mob in new york.

    He wrote The Wire, and produced it.😀 Maybe the book you're thinking of is Baltimore- Life on the Streets. He wrote that.

    That doc about Cutler is excellent too.

    Watched a documentary about Ivor Cutler on Sky, I only really had heard his name before but it was really interesting. Presented by KT Tunstall.

    That’s the one. It’s either my age or lockdown fatigue. Or most likely both.

    Sorry, unfortunately not. I last saw on TV several years ago.

    Maybe worthwhile checking YouTube, amazing what turns up on the platform.

    Watching “The Ripper” on Netflix - unsurprisingly about the Yorkshire Ripper.

    Never realised that Bruce Jones who played Les Battersby in Coronation Street found one of the bodies. He was treated as a suspect and lost his wife and kids as a result.

    Not a documentary but watching the Pembrokeshire Murders series. Rubbish title considering he appeared on Bullseye!

    I would have called it Double Topped. 😬

    David Simon wrote a book called "The Corner" which was what inspired The Wire. Really good read and it was also made into a mini series as well, from memory.

    Murder in my Village on Sky Crime, something quite addictive about it.

    The Art Of Drumming on Sky Arts is good if you like your music.

    Night Stalker on Netflix is brilliant. Not for the faint hearted as pretty graphic. Ramirez was one ****ed up evil git.

    Just tuned in to Sky Arts, currently showing Jimmy Carter: Rock & Roll President.

    It’s probably my age, but it’s a great watch.
