All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace

I've always found Adam Curtis's documentaries chilling. 

Via Bruce Sterling, I've gotten wind of the latest: "All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace," which addresses network culture. It starts on 23 May BBC 2.

Imagine, a country whose government actually funds documentaries like this.

  1. BBC
    There is quite a buzz about this, looking forward to seeing the result. Oh and as for “Imagine, a country whose government actually funds documentaries like this.” Yes, wonderful isn’t it. Just a shame the current government is doing all it can to limit the BBC’s ability to continue to do so.

  2. Govt. funded?
    It’s not funded by the government.
    We all pay a compulsory licence fee to fund the BBC.
    Mostly, the money is spent on garbage, with a few rare exceptions.
    The majority of the content (BBC1 accounts for 25% of the BBC budget) is spent on game shows/the national lottery and ‘Eastenders’.
