No, I'm sorry, I'm terrible at things like that. It was a Channel 4 production by the way. It may be available on one of the P2P sites. I will also check to see if a repeat is scheduled.

This program caused an avalanche of posts on Channel 4s own forum. Far too many to read, but there are quite a lot of talented and informed contributions there.

Did you watch this tonight?:

The Trap: What Happened to Our Dreams...

Sun 11 Mar, 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm 60mins
The Trap: What Happened to Our Dreams of Freedom

F**k You Buddy: A series of films by BAFTA-winning producer Adam Curtis that tells the story of the rise of today's narrow idea of freedom. It will show how a simplistic model of human beings as self-seeking, almost robotic, creatures led to today's idea of freedom. This model was derived from ideas and techniques developed by nuclear strategists during the Cold War. It was then taken up by genetic biologists, anthropologists, radical psychiatrists and free market economists, until it became a new system of invisible control. With some strong language. [S]
Subtitles Stereo Widescreen


The country may be going to the dogs under this government, but boy, do we produce some first-class T.V. or what?

Maybe for the heavies. But we can't touch the US when it comes to comedies like Friends, Simpsons & Cheers. The talented writers just aren't around in the UK.

Off the top of my head:

The Office, Little Britain, Extras.-Comedy

Life on Mars, Lewis, Foyle's War.-Drama

Bleak House, Mayor of Casterbridge.-Costume Drama.

and who doesn't love University Challenge?

See, we consider stuff like Friends to be fluff. I prefer things like The Office, Father Ted, Keeping Up Appearances.

US has good shows like Fraiser, Cheers, even 2.5 Men but some of the Brit comedies are every bit as good. And I agree, Foyle's War was excellent.

I think a show like friends is very age dependent. If you are the age of the folks on the show, it is very funny, us older viewers just think of it as whining.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

Mmm... I don't know about that...

I'm old enough to have worked on the Apollo Lunar Project - as a young guy!
