    'This Is What Winning Looks Like' on VICE,it came out in 2013 and the writing was on the wall for the Afghan state and army even back then..

    Really eye opening.

    Watched that High documentary, about the lassies caught in Peru. Just focuses on the Irish lassie. Was awrite, although the narration was pretty annoying.

    Just comes across as having been a very daft young lassie, but who knows. Seems to have done OK for herself. Soundtrack was good, remember hearing tunes from Jamie XX, The Knife and Aphex Twin among others. The actual dramatisation of it all was pretty much like Banged Up Abroad. Worth a watch if there's * all on.

    I watched it via my IPTV box mate, but it was a BBC3 documentary. It's not the absolute best documentary I've seen, and she does come across as really, really young and daft in all honesty, but I quite like the Banged Up Abroad show and it was quite like that. I didn't realise she didn't actually know she was going to Lima, or even where Lima was until she was sat on the plane and saw the map on screen of where the plane was going lol

    Some good wee clips of Ibiza as well, and some pictures of the two of them in Peru which I hadn't seen.

    I do believe the pair were very naive but surely they knew what they were doing.Downlading iptv to fire stick this week so can rid myself of Sky,premier sports etc.So will definitely give this a watch,sounds good.

    It's difficult to tell! I'd have to have some belief that anyone going out to Ibiza to work for a season understands and knows what it's like there in regards to drugs. She continually brings up the question of whether she's being stupid, and just the subject of her stupidity in general. It's hard to tell if she's playing daft at times. I'm sure she's done OK out of all this.

    I'm half way through the 6 parts of I Sniper: The Washington Killers. I remember the killings, however had never really looked into it that much so knew very little about it.

    Shocking how little regard Boeing had for safety with the 737 max. Trying to blame the pilots was disgusting.

    More shocking is that they knew up front yet never came clean until cornered for truth. Powerful allegory on modern corporations, everything from deceit and coverup to doing anything in name of profits. I thought it was contextualizad brilliantly

    Finished watching the 2 part documentary The Burren : Heart of Stone this evening. Was really good. The camera work was excellent some just spectacular shots. The first part is about the Burren's remarkable biodiversity and then the second part is about the ancient human settlement there. It is fairly recent being a 2021 show so it includes some of the most recent discoveries some of which are very significant.

    Another 737 down in China not sure if it's the max or not, but looking at the footage it's flying/falling straight nose down towards the ground,
