A BBC documentary series by Adam Curtis. More about it from Wikipedia.
I have embedded all the files here in the blog but in case you have a problem watching or prefer the option to watch it in full-screen, I have also uploaded it to my server, where you can download it as a Quicktime video.
And now, discuss: Why do you think I have found this video relevant to our discussion of new media? What kind of lessons / ideas did you draw from it that might extend our discussion?
