Why I love this country

What's on TV tonight, honey?


DOCUMENTARY: Auschwitz The Final Solution

DOCUMENTARY: The Power Of Nightmares (1)
The first of three films about the rise of the politics of fear. The series demonstrates how the threat of Islamist terrorism has been distorted and exaggerated by politicians. While there is a terrorist threat from radical Islamism, the idea that we are faced by a terrifying hidden organisation orchestrated by evil mastermind Osama bin Laden is a fantasy. It is a myth that has spread unquestioned through politics, the security services and the international media. At the heart of the story are two groups: the American neoconservatives and the radical Islamists. Both groups were idealistic, born out of the failure of the liberal dream to build a better world. Together they created today's nightmare vision of an organised terror network. Part 2 on Wednesday.
