It's nearly 4am and I think I'll leave it on BBC Four for the rest of the night. It's just got non-interrupted birdsong and a dog barking in the distance for the rest of the night. They are just like the sounds I hear when sleeping with my bedroom window open in summer. Soothing, relaxing, stuff. It'll probably help me to kip.

Tomorrow's World

A 1989 episode of the classic BBC documentary series looking at future technology. This episode, filmed before the World Wide Web came into being and touchscreen meant wiping muck off the TV screen, looks at how the world may look in 2020.

I recently watched Treblinka's Last Witness, the story of Samuel Willenberg, Treblinka's last survivor who passed away in 2016. It is a very moving documentary worth watching. Here is a trailer:

The history of the FA Cup DVD, charting its history from its birth at Harrow School in the 1870s.

I particularly enjoyed the footage from the 1930 FA Cup final when 92,499 fans at Wembley not only witnessed Arsenal beat Huddersfield Town 2-0 but also the mighty German Graf Zeppelin flying overhead.

Huddersfield Town was England's dominant team of the era, so Arsenal's victory, to lift the trophy for the first time, was a huge upset.

King George V, making his first public appearance since illness, met the teams before the start.

Watching women's hockey is like watching the WNBA.

Why We Hate

By

discovery.com

Throughout history, hate and conflict have been part of the human experience. From horrific extremes such as the Holocaust or the Rwandan genocide, when hate has fueled mass destruction, to everyday incidents like playground bullying or malicious trolling on social media, hate shapes our lives in myriad ways. And while all humans have the capacity to hate, few understand what sparks it and transforms it into a destructive force.

Executive produced by filmmaking heavyweights Alex Gibney and Steven Spielberg and directed by Geeta Gandbhir and Sam Pollard (Emmy® winners for “When The Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts”), WHY WE HATE explores one of humanity’s most primal and destructive emotions – hate. At the heart of this timely series is the notion that if people begin to understand their own minds, they can find ways to work against hate and keep it from spreading.

Drain The Titanic The most famous shipwreck in the world, the Titanic, lies over 12,000 feet down in the icy waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Since the discovery of the wreck in 1985, there have been numerous expeditions to the site, but until now, no one has ever recorded the full extent of what really remains on this remote area of seabed. Now, over a century on from her tragic loss, we are able to reveal the overall wreck site: we will virtually drain the Titanic. Spectacular new visualisation techniques will depict this ‘draining’ process and offer viewers a ringside view for the emergence of the wreck from the waves – seen in full for the first time since April 15th 1912. Virtual fly-pasts enable us to explore the wreck site and tackle some long-standing mysteries. New science is painting a clearer picture of how the Titanic actually sank, and new theories are now emerging on how and when she actually broke apart, how she reached the seabed, and what has happened to the wreck in the course of a century underwater. With this information, not only do scientists have a phenomenal resource for tracking the status of the wreck, but it also means we can look into the future and see the eventual fate of the ship thought to be unsinkable.

James May: Reassembler



Former Top Gear star James May reassembles everyday objects.

In this episode, James tackles a 1957 Bakelite dial telephone - 211 pieces, most of them very small indeed, must be reassembled in the correct order if this telephone is ever to ring again. From the receiver with its carbon filings that enable speech to be amplified, to the electrical pulses created by the dial itself that connect the phone to the outside world, James soon discovers that every single piece of the telephone played a crucial role in revolutionising communication around the world.

James May: Reassembler



James is faced with the 331 pieces that make up a 1959 petrol lawnmower. The Suffolk Colt helped make mowing accessible to the masses by producing a smaller and affordable machine to keep our nation's lawns at regulation height. As this is a petrol lawnmower, James's first task is to put the engine back together before he gets to grips with the gearing, the clutch and the blades themselves. Armed only with his toolbox and an endless supply of tea, James experiences the highs and lows only possible when attempting to put history back together again, piece by piece.

I recently watched the movie Once Upon a Time In Hollywood, pretty good. I won't spoil the ending for those who haven't seen it, but the ending is worth the price of watching the whole thing.

It was the third time I've watched it, Avro. There is so much to take in that I've found I learn more about the war every time I watch it. Also, I am a huge fan of Ken Burns and have seen everyone of his documentaries - each of which I would highly recommend watching.

Last night I stumbled across a very old movie on Youtube starring Vincent Price, it was called The Last Man Alive, the acting was horrid but I couldn't look away as I found some of the small parallels to what's happening in the world today uncanny.
