24 Hours After Hiroshima #

Released 4/5/2010

Description: Using notification from the investigation following the dropping of the first atomic bomb on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, this documentary outlines the instant 24 hours following the heavy explosion. The first atomic bomb contained 140 lbs of enriched uranium and reduced the downtown to a wasteland with 70,000 folks killed immediately. Other 40,000 died three days soon when a second bomb was dropped on Nagasaki. The Units spent 10 weeks studying the impact of the explosion focusing on thermal flash. The instant impact was that some were vaporized leaving only atomic shadows. Triangulating these led them to conclude that the bomb exploded only a several hundred yards from its intended target. There was massive hurt for 3 miles in each direction. A nice many were burned but there was very tiny notification about radiation poisoning at the time. Today, scientists are still studying but the study continues today with the study of 120,000 Hiroshima survivors.

Meat the Truth #

Released 10/3/2008

Description: Meat the Truth is a high-profile documentary which forms an addendum to earlier movies on climate change. Although such movies have succeeded in drawing public attention to the trouble of global warming, they have repeatedly ignored one of the most necessary causes of climate change: the intensive livestock production. Meat the Truth draws attention to this by demonstrating that livestock farming generates more greenhouse gas emissions worldwide than all cars, lorries, trains, boats and planes added together.

Speak of the Devil #

Released 1/1/1995

Description: But what is the Church of Satan? Who is Anton LaVey? Where is he from? Why does he do that? It does not take much to imagine the worst. Orgiastic ceremonies, where one revels in the blood of virgins, moonlight lamb sacrifices, noise concerts in the basement of a historical building… No, really nothing that amusing among the activities in the Church of Satan. Anton LaVey is nothing like a horned Charles Manson, and his path is all the more unexpected. Nickname Bougas allows us to explore the artist, the musician, the philosopher, all through hallucinatory photos retrieved from archives, making this rare documentary only two years before the creator of the Satanic Bible disappeared.

Jack to a King: The Swansea Story Reviews:

Living in Australia, it is virtually impossible not to be some kind of sports fan, as sport is so much intertwined with our National Identity (sad , I know, but it is.).So naturally, I LOVE sports DOCO's. I was hoping this would be entertaining and it is....and more so.There are no spoilers here and I wish to tell that before I watched this - I knew absolutely NOTHING about Swansea Town FC (I hope I got that right).This documentary does what nice documentaries do - they inform the first time viewer with all the relevant notification they will need in order to totally understand the adventure that the storyline wants you to understand.You don't have to like Swansea, Football or Sport to LOVE this.If you like an improbable storyline with Hero's and Villains and a cast of interesting and diverse characters - as well as MAGIC. Then you could LOVE THIS also


what a pity. a nice storyline but....poorly told, poorly place together. e.g. early on we receive a lot of talking heads but ....who are they? eventually we search out....eventually. & the chairman petty storyline is very unclear. OK, he buys the club for a pound but what exactly was his 'rip off' strategy? did he intend to sell the ground for development? did the club now own the ground? was his main consultant now involved in the porn business? what you do receive is the love & passion & commitment of true fans, a quick disappearing breed. although perhaps we should have done without so much of the vodka breakfast of champions of the woman with the eating disorder....


This movie pushes all the right emotional buttons but so much of it is a bit lacking.There seems to be too much fluffy filler rather than story-telling. Some of the filler: Baton girl, Anorexic fanatic (why is she representative of all fans? No others were really featured) and no interviews with Brendan Rodgers - the most influential manager of Swansea - ridiculous.I did play the Roberto Martinez storyline and Lee Trundle (no interview again.) In fact it was weird how there were interviews missed from many key individuals. Oh well. I lived in South Wales when I was younger so this movie resonated with me quite a bit the landscape that Leon Brittain alludes to remains with me as a lasting impression the slag-heaps and industrial skyline. As an emotional storyline this works quite well. As an informative documentary not so much.
