    Storyville

    Like Horizon this is a international smattering of documentaries on history, politics and cultural topics, often random but fascinating and enlightening.

    To start:

    That one was very good. It does seem like a random list of topics based on what shows up on Youtube.

    Maybe I'll have to watch the one about the Swedish synchronized swimming team.

    It's not on youtube but there was a storyville called the Gatekeepers - about Shin Bet operatives since the Six-Day War. Very intriguing perspectives on what killing other people and intelligence subterfuge actually involves.

    Did you see the one about Randi? It was really good.

    No, but it is on IPlayer still. I will check it out.

    I saw Particle Fever recently also on Storyville, which was well executed and passable. But probably I didn't appreciate it as much because I'd read more a more in-depth account by Sean Carroll and this just seemed to skim it - as documentaries do I suppose.

    Thanks for the reminder this exists. It airs on channel 5 at home but I haven't watched since I moved country.
