Description: This is the planet we still know so little.

If we don't do anything then we face one of the largest disasters in history of mankind.
Description: "Meat Joy is an erotic rite — excessive, indulgent, a celebration of flesh as material: raw fish, chicken, sausages, wet paint, transparent plastic, ropes, brushes, paper scrap. Its propulsion is towards the ecstatic — shifting and turning among tenderness, wildness, precision, abandon; qualities that should at any moment be sensual, comic, joyous, repellent. Physical equivalences are enacted as a psychic imagistic stream, in which the layered elements mesh and gain intensity by the energy complement of the audience. The original performances became notorious and introduced a vision of the 'sacred erotic.' This video was converted from original movie footage of three 1964 performances of Meat Joy at its first staged performance at the Festival de la Libre Expression, Paris, Dennison Hall, London, and Judson Church, Fresh York City."

Description: The cliché of classic rock guitar is one of riffs, solos and noise. But write a list of nice guitarists and their finest moments and a quieter, more intense testing comes to the fore. The acoustic guitar is the secret weapon in the armoury of the guitar hero, when paradoxically they receive more attention by testing quietly than being loud. This documentary takes an insightful and occasionally irreverent look at the love affair between rock and the humble acoustic guitar. Exploring a much less celebrated, yet crucial part of the rock musician's arsenal, contributors including Johnny Marr, Keith Richards, Ray Davies, James Dean Bradfield, Biffy Clyro, Joan Armatrading, Donovan and Roger McGuinn discuss why an instrument favoured by medieval minstrels and singing nuns is as necessary to rock 'n' roll as the drums, bass and its noisy sister, the electric guitar.
