I too watched that series, every afternoon after school :) I guess that was what got me started on documentaries. "the World At War" is still one of the best WWII docus ever made, narrated by Sir Lawrence Laurence Olivier.

Back then, local TV was much more educational and intelligent, even with harsh Marcos censorship

But now that I remember, I think History Channel has some good docus on the subject. The Universe is the title, if I remember correctly. Search EZTV.

hanep sa photography/videography/editing. considering iisa lang lagi ang may hawak ng camera.

Wife and I are into S1E6 now. I already have the first 2 series.

give it a try.

source around the net is on an m4v format. Had to transcode to mkv para playable sa tv namin. :D

EDIT:
kahit na hindi travel enthusiast magugustuhan ito. you will see the world from a different perspective right inside your living room.

I can't stress it enough, go watch this series.

Has anyone watched Chris Ryan's Elite World Cops?

Elite World Cops is a television series starring former SAS soldier and author Chris Ryan. Ryan travels the world meeting some of the worlds most elite police units. The format of the show usually involves Ryan training with the unit, observing tactics and hardware and comparing them to his own experiences in the SAS.

Episode 1 - Junglas
JUNGLAS, Ryan joins a special police unit in Colombia who are trained to operate in the jungle. After training he is invited to take part in operations locating and destroying a cocaine lab in the jungle and supervising civilians destroying coca plantations and providing them with protection.

Episode 2 - BOPE
BOPE, short for Batalhão de Operações Policiais Especiais, Rio de Janeiro's special weapons and tactics team. The operation involves a visit to some of the town's favelas or slums where the police are trying to take back the streets from drug dealers and gangs

Episode 3 - SUNKAR
SUNKAR, Kazakhstani police special unit. Training involves CQB, Close Quarters Battle, training and using many pieces of old Soviet hardware including the BTR-60 Soviet built APC or armoured personal carrier, and RPGs. The operation involves stopping drug traffickers trying to smuggle heroin through Kazakhstan and the arrests of a group trying to harvest a cannabis plantation.


Episode 4 - BOA
BOA, Poland's SWAT team tasked with operations that the normal police can not handle and since September 11 also tasked with counter-terorism. Training includes fast roping and explosive entry to buildings as well as helicopter extraction. During the real operation the team, including Ryan, are ordered to storm a house and detain an arms dealer that is believed to be living there.

Episode 5 - Magav
MAGAV, Chris joins the MAGAV (Israeli Border Police) Elite Counter-Terror Undercover Unit called Yamas, which operates in a Palestinian controlled cities and territories, tracking and arresting terrorists in different ways.

Episode 6 - STF
STF, Ryan joins the Special Police Task Force of Sri Lanka, in their fight against the Tamil Tigers. He learns stragetic driving, and urban warfare in the jungle. He goes on a mission to track down and arrest two Tamil Tiger scouts on a watchpost, and a small scale training operation involving the use of C4 in a warehouse.

Episode 7 - POLICIA FEDERAL DE MEXICO
POLICIA FEDERAL DE MEXICO, In Mexico the crime rate is so high, most of the police is army and combat trained, to survive the rage and aggression of the street gangs. Ryan joins a special task force of the federal police of Mexico, on their hunt for gangs and local drug labs. He is also involved in a large training exercise involving a Boeing 777-200ER in a hostage situation.

Could be good instructional material for our SWAT/SAF teams.

OMG MICHIO KAKU!!! LINKS PLEASE!!! :lol:

OT: Actually, may aging genes. Too complex to discuss here, suffice to say, around next year there will be technologies to switch off the aging genes and turn on youth genes. I saw the animal experiments myself early this year. While this i not immortality, as the lead researcher says, it's a way to make one enjoy fully his or her life even at an advanced age.
Title: Re: Documentaries worth watching
Post by: splerdu on October 04, 2010, 02:36:06 PM
Those 'anti-aging' genes are actually genes that help the body's self-repair processes. It's in the documentary. The important thing is, while we have a program that builds us to maturity, there is no program, in our body that tells us to 'grow old and die'. (Parang Saiyan sa DBZ! Mature to 30, and stay there forever).

Basically that happens when nasty stuff like free radicals crash into our cells, and slowly damage the DNA that tells them how to function in the first place. After enough damage is done, the cells don't even know how to repair themselves, hence the aging effect.

Now, there are experiments on mice, worms and other small animals where changing a single gene can extend the lifespan by up to 6 times, but this is not the 'death clock' gene we imagine. Rather, those gene changes tend to focus on making the body's self-repair systems better, or more resilient. In this case, we seem to be at a place where we can speed up evolution. Instead of waiting for that gene to change of its own accord, we have the power to 'toggle' it, as a programmer or engineer might say.

I'll PM you the link. It's awesome!

Ah, what you said is similar to what I witnessed. What I saw was an experiment with mice and monkeys. One group was fed with a "special" diet, the other was not. After some time, at the equivalent of what a man would be in his 70's, the mice fed with the special diet appeared more youthful (more active, more clean) than those who were fed normal diet.

I wish I had videoed it. It was damn exciting. I think they are now in the phase of testing humans. The chief scientist said he already tried it, and he said he got his mojo back. :lol:

It's being researched by a certain private company and Harvard U.

(http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/images/episode/b00p1fpc_303_170.jpg)

Quote
Alan Davies attempts to answer the proverbial question: how long is a piece of string? But what appears to be a simple task soon turns into a mind-bending voyage of discovery where nothing is as it seems.

An encounter with leading mathematician Marcus du Sautoy reveals that Alan's short length of string may in fact be infinitely long. When Alan attempts to measure his string at the atomic scale, events take an even stranger turn. Not only do objects appear in many places at once, but reality itself seems to be an illusion.

Ultimately, Alan finds that measuring his piece of string could - in theory at least - create a black hole, bringing about the end of the world.

Things were a lot different half a century ago, but it appears cameras were the gadget to had back then too. (Their cameras look like the one ninoy's holding in the 500 peso bill.) Note the schoolgirls running at 33:55.  A short mention here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=87wLtxczI0M&feature=player_detailpage#t=2071s

Another docu, saw this when it aired in NHK, good thing it's in youtube too: "Design of Nikon Camera *Circle, Triangle, Square *"

Anyone watched NGC's "locked up abroad?" Must see imho, available this weekend on tv. The one featuring the brit in the local setting. Story's very compelling (flawed and one-sided storytelling notwithstanding.) Portrays the country in rather bad light but overall it's true (and i agree) about the general unprofessionalism of the police, the backwardness and corruption of the authorities (lagay dito, lagay don) ...i wouldn't say culture but the hokey/jologs/stupid mores  that have become commonplace nowadays tsk. tsk.

Quote
When Mr Scott met Cynthia Villamor, 29, through an internet chatroom, she was living in Abu Dhabi and had been separated from her husband for three years.

She became pregnant with their daughter, Janina, when he visited her in April last year and she immediately tried to end her marriage. However, the devoutly Catholic Philippines does not allow divorce and Miss Villamor's husband, Noriel Delfino, withdrew permission for an annulment when he found out his wife was dating a foreigner.

He then demanded £7,000 for "loss of face".

Check out Machete Maidens Unleashed (2010).

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1623757/
http://machetemaidensunleashed.com/

Karate-kickin' midgets! Paper-mâché monsters! Busty babes with blades! Filipino genre films of the '70s and '80s had it all.

Boasting cheap labour, exotic scenery and non-existent health and safety regulations, the Philippines was a dreamland for exploitation filmmakers whose renegade productions were soon engulfing drive-in screens around the globe like a tidal schlock-wave!

At last, the all-too-often overlooked world of drive-in filler from Manila gets the Mark Hartley (NOT QUITE HOLLYWOOD) treatment in Machete Maidens Unleashed!. This is the ultimate insiders' account of a faraway backlot where stunt men came cheap, plot was obsolete and the make-up guy was packin' heat!

Machete Maidens Unleashed! features interviews with cult movie icons Roger Corman, Joe Dante, John Landis, Sid Haig, Eddie Romero and a large assembly of cast, crew and critics, each with a jaw-dropping story to tell about filmmaking with no budget, no scruples, no boundaries and - more often than not - no clothes.

(http://www.asiancinematic.com/images/honeymoon-japanese-documentary-01.jpg)

Synopsis

This was shot in Tokyo, Japan and explores behind the scenes of a truly crazy 24-hour sex driven pay-TV channel called Paradise TV. It is part of a trilogy which also includes “Paradise TV: Japan” and “Hamedori”.

Ono plays video games and dreams of directing porn. As a young porn actor he was known as a “juice” man for his ability to produce photogenic amounts of seminal fluid on cue. That would be quite enough success for most young men, but like so many actors before him, Ono is earnest in his desire to direct. Tonight he will get chance on Japan’s notorious Paradise TV, an insane 24 hour-a-day sex channel on Tokyo television.

Honeymoon is a documentary on life behind the scenes at Paradise TV, where the realms of capitalism, culture and commerce intertwine. Slovenian director Dražen Štader and his cameras are provided rare access to the inner workings and politics of this strange sex business.

We are introduced to Ono’s mentor, Kobayashi, a highly skilled director who abandoned a successful commercial career for the pleasures of working with beautiful Japanese wottmen as a member of the Paradise TV crew. We also meet Narayama, the highly skilled and over-stimulated cameraman whose unexpected outbursts of pleasure provide hilarious distraction.

At the casting call we are enchanted with lovely Makoto, a teenage actress and wannabe adult film star who will be playing a kinky, sadistic mistress in Ono’s piece. She is fresh and enthusiastic and we watch as she struggles with her lines and the improvisatory nature of the program she is to star in. This a live call in show and callers will ask Makoto to act out their various sexual fantasies against a tacky and tinsel strewn Christmas Eve set. Makoto and the Paradise TV crew, under Ono’s novice direction, will do their best to deliver and satisfy the anonymous desires of all comers.

Honeymoon opens a weird cross cultural window into the awkward and hilarious world of the Japanese adult entertainment industry. Štader moves with a cool detachment, slinking around in the background, capturing the sheer unbridled absurdity of it all, while managing to punctuate his film with unadulterated comic moments of pure philosophical introspection from his surprisingly articulate subjects.

According to 360 Island Philippines when interviewed just a few days ago, their "Top Tourist Spot" inquiry in the country was surprisingly MOA, and most of the inquiry were from people not living here in the country. Go figure.
Title: Re: Documentaries worth watching
Post by: splerdu on April 15, 2012, 02:50:04 PM
Those giant Chinese malls are really exceptionally badly thought out. The mall is actually placed near some new housing developments, but everything is priced way out of reach of their  middle class. It's also in the middle of nowhere, so the well-to-do and investors aren't buying either.

http://www.businessinsider.com/chinese-ghost-cities-2011-5?op=1

In contrast, MOA is still easily accessible. Shops are priced within the reach of most, plus you get to see the bayside and there's the convention center for cultural events. I think more than anything people appreciate the feeling of space (at least I do). It's big enough, and in an area open enough to feel a bit less claustrophobic than most malls.
