Documentary Season (TV)

I wanted to talk a little bit about documentaries, since I’m currently working on my second documentary project at university and there seems to be an awful lot of documentaries out there to explore right now (especially across the BBC). I’ve listed below a few of the documentaries I’ve watched recently and whether or not…

Reggie Yates: Life & Death In Chicago

This is one of the most powerful and moving documentaries I have watched in a long, long time. The main reason I have decided to share my opinions about this particular documentary, is because I feel it could really create some conversations – good conversations about important things which NEED to be changed NOW. Okay,…

One of Us – BBC’s Dark Drama

I first saw this drama advertised on the BBC back in August and was instantly intrigued by it’s narrative. To me it seemed like a typical murder mystery set within a close-knit family however it’s so much more than that….. The story starts with childhood sweethearts Adam Elliot and Grace Douglas who have returned home…

A TV Challenge?

In this post I’d like to talk about a tv series which I’d been “challenged” to watch by my boyfriend and in return I “challenged” him to watch a series that I have recently enjoyed. The series I was challenged to watch was DC’s The Flash, shown in the UK on Sky Atlantic; so far…
