sounds good, what channel?One of the best ones I've seen in fairly recent times was Mike Brewer (off wheeler dealer fame) shadowing a helicopter crew in Afghanistan. He's in the helicopter when they are doing what is supposed to be a fairly routine patrol when the call comes in for a medevac. They land under fire while the ground troops load injured British and Taliban (often forgotten that we treated all injured in battle) while the tail gunner is firing of rounds. The helicopter gets hit a couple of times and the pilot takes a nasty shrapnel wound just above the eye but still manages to take off and get back to base. When they get back to base a Mike Brewer who's been fairly quiet though it all suddenly realises what he's just been witness to and has a bit of a moment. Was a very good bit of TV.
Now you're asking. It was a long time ago. Pretty sure I've seen it on youtube since. Try searching under Mike Brewer, Afghanistan and I'm sure you'll find it.sounds good, what channel?
That's the one. He actually did more than I realised. I think I only caught the one in the chanook.Have found it
Frontline Battle Machines - Mike Brewer TV - Wheeler Dealer
Can't find it anywhere to purchase online to watch though so will keep an eye out. Sounds quite interesting.
Sadly I watched the Severn Bridge one and that was quite good!
Is it 'the rise of the politics of fear' - brilliantThe Adam Curtis documentaries are brilliant. I can highly recommend Bitter Lake and Hypernormalisation.
There's a good one about capping the Chernobyl reactor too. Oh, and a great one on Russia's cosmonauts and how they won the space race.
Sounds like the sort of thing i may be fascinated by. This is on Netflix?Britains Greatest Pilot, the story of Eric "Winkle" Brown absolutely fascinating, like a boys
Own story, flew over 450 different planes from biplanes to jet fighters.
Took part in an air display at the 1936 Berlin Olympics, a test pilot for the RAF who was the
1st pilot ever to land a Jet on an Aircraft Carrier, took part in the interrogation of Goering.
I think he's 98 now, the documentary is made up of old footage, other people's testimony
And his own words, as you'd expect from someone of his ilk he's very selfless.
It really is a brilliant watch, his life story is incredible, I think there are parts 1&2.
I'm not sure, I watched it about a year ago on one of those nights when your boredSounds like the sort of thing i may be fascinated by. This is on Netflix?

Nuts, disturbing and upsetting. Bit like a Saturday afternoon at the Ricoh.
it's definitely more upsetting than Turner and Hooch!Your Father's Murderer: A Letter to Zachary (2008) - IMDb
Good reviews on IMDB, might have a look. Don't usually like things that are too upsetting like that.
Can watch horror films all day with people having their heads chopped off but Marley and Me or Turner and Hooch and I'm gone.
Yes nick I completely agree I was fascinated how he managed to get away with it, his default seemed to be blaming the persons parentsThat was stupid. The highlight was the bloke reckoning that him being spoken to changed his life etc. The guy is rinsing the shit out of people and spouting bollocks to vulnerable people and they are swallowing it whole.
