Caught one over the weekend on Jim Jones and The People's Temple on History Channel. I've been fascinated with this since high school.

Today I watched a free DVD I got with a magazine subscription called A Nation Adrift, which seemed to be saying that America has gone to Hell in a Handbasket because we're straying from our Christian roots.

I caught about 20 minutes of the Nimitz Aircraft Carrier documentary on PBS that's going to run over several days. They don't make it look glamorous. All I can say is thank God I didn't join the Navy. I wouldn't fit in, and I'd be miserable.

Watched this:

The First Georgians: The German Kings Who Made Britain. I love Lucy Worsley, she's one of the best presenting historians on tv to my mind.

If you want to understand the modern British state, this is the starting point.

The last documentary I can remember watching is "White Falcon, White Wolf" on PBS.

Watch it here.

PBS has like eighty-some odd full episodes of "Nature" online.

Watch them anywhere, anytime.

Just on case you missed the memo, nuclear power isn't evil.

I just watched the most recent episode of Nature's Weirdest Events - I think it's on it's fourth series now.

It's not a 'When Insects Attack!!!' type show - but a look at some really weird and marvellous shit in nature, by one of my favourite nature presenters, Chris Packham. It has quite a light and quirky tone; fun and informative.

Here's the first ep from the first series (2011)



(some of the stuff has been in the Cellar IotD, so it's nice to get a closer look)



As an aside: Packham drew controversy a couple years ago through his stance on pandas and the conservation movement:

I watched one on Fusion the other night called Black, White & Blue...it looked at policing in the aftermath of Mike Brown, Tamir Rice, Eric Garner, etc. Interesting watch.

I'm surprised how small their solar array is, especially with ten year old panels.
