Part One was shown last Sun... unfortunately, if you missed it.




It's got some good St Louis style musical soundtrack too.



Superbly sad and scary.


The music, especially "Walking to New Orleans" (I believe it's Fats singing) is a rather poignant backdrop.

Agreed. A great doco but to say I enjoyed it would be the wrong term.

Those poor people. Imagine living in a country and suddenly realizing that your government and president actually cared nothing about you whatsoever.


The part about Condolezza being berated for her insensitivity by a white woman in a shoe store was quite poignant


I didn't realize there was more to come. I faded out at midnight on the couch and woke up at 2.00am!
