It's an eye opening documentary about Venezuela. 

 

       I've been there on a holiday, but not in any Favelas. This video is taken by a Russian, scary shi_e.

 

   In one area 30 killed people per day? No country for old men, then.

Watched the movie Amundsen last night and it was on BBC iPlayer.

 

Didn't know a lot about the guy because when I was at school in the UK, everything focused Scott and his team trying to reach the South Pole and dying in doing so (as heroes of course).

 

That being the case, we really weren't taught anything about Amundsen, rather than to dismiss him as somebody who "stole the prize from us".

 

He was much cleverer in putting together his campaign to reach the South Pole, however one scene from the movie really hit me hard, and that was where he was attending the Royal Geographic Society dinner in honour of his achievements, which turned out to be hero worship of the fallen Scott, almost completely ignoring Amundsen and almost denigrating him in his choice of sleds and dogs rather than horses and machines as per Scott.

 

Anyway, it is a Norwegian produced movie, with parts in English and parts in Norwegian (with big English subtitles, so easy to read) and is excellent in my opinion, and not only that, furthered my knowledge of history.

And now for something a little bit different.

Sicilian mafia stories set in the 1970's that are dark comedies.

First the movie.

Then the two year (24 total episodes) t.v. series.

Same name.

 

The Mafia Only Kills in Summer

La mafia uccide solo d'estate

 

La mafia uccide solo d'estate (TV Series 2016–2018) - IMDb

 

So far I've only watched episode 1 of the t.v. series. I'm not totally sold yet but enough to watch episode 2.  The lead boy reminds me of the lead in The Wonder Years (American comedy drama series).

The great thing about Netflix is everything comes with subs if you want them, and not just English, many languishes. Not so with Amazon Prime

BBC Four: Storyville, The Hijacker Who Vanished: The Mystery of DB Cooper

 

Available from RARBG or on youtube.

Summary: A mysterious fugitive, a hijacked airplane and a daring mid-air escape. This is the extraordinary, real-life tale of one of the greatest unsolved heists in American history and a case that has taunted the FBI for decades. This documentary brings the stories of the four possible suspects to life through candid testimony, archive footage and stylised drama. Each account is gripping and highly plausible. But who is telling the truth, who is lying and, ultimately, who is DB Cooper?

Spent 5 years in the High Arctic in the mid to late 70's. Still a few old timers who used dogs.

Asked one of them shortly after my arrival, and the purchase of my first Skidoo -

"Why don't you use a Skidoo"

Answer - "Can't eat a Skidoo" That put living up there in perspective

Believed to be, no proof.

Covered up because of the embarrassment of him actually being a CIA pilot.      

Quote

Records ‘reveal’ dead CIA pilot was Cooper; FBI hid his release

Quote

 

A secret FBI “death file,” released by a judge this week, disclosed the identity of the outlaw who has been mythologized in film, TV and song. For 45 years he was on the FBI’s Most Wanted list, until, in 2016, the agency officially closed the unsolved case.

But the newly-uncovered FBI documents reveal its agents strongly believed their prime suspect was the former US Army pilot, paratrooper and explosives expert Rackstraw – and that he was also a CIA black-ops man.
