Along time ago like probably 10 years ago, I saw a documentary on HBO about Palestenian suicide bombers it had alot to do with their state of mind it was great sad but great.

They interviewed a failed suicide bomber who accidently blew his limbs off by preparing to become a martyr.

The documentary on the "City of God" dvd about the gangs and violence affecting Rio's favelas.

Theres always something on television in England about Hispanic gangs. Last night (early this morning) i watched a documentary about the 18th Street gang in El Salvadour.

A few weeks back there was a documentary on about life in Compton.

Another one i seen that was good was 'Los Angeles: The Postmodern City'

See, that's what gets to me.

Here in America, we have to go to Compton and get our asses shot off to see what's going on in AMERICA'S OWN BACK YARD!!! They don't find a lot of time to show documentaries about inner city life on American t.v; It cuts into Amercian Idol. (Exception: HBO)

Be glad you live in a country where there's creative minds at the heads of your t.v. networks; That went bye-bye a long time ago here in the states. It's American Idol, American Idol, American Idol, and American Idol.

Also, since your from England, Thanks a lot for Simon Cowell. Now, you can HAVE HIM BACK! :)

I second the documentary of the City of God DVD. Awesome stuff.

I miss TV in England. Tonnes of documentaries compared to the crap they show here in North America.

Death in Gaza is awesome. It's all about the life of Palestinian children. The film maker is a British guy named James Miller. He got shot dead by Israeli soldiers while identifying himself as a journalist and waving a white flag. It's in the documentary.

Sky One have been showing a series called 'Ross Kemp on Gangs' which seems to be based pretty much on Rio's gangs and life in the favellas. Caught a bit of one the other night and it was all about the Red Command and how they got tings started back in the day.

Heavy program if you can ignore Ross Kemp lol.

Shake Hands With the Devil is another good one. It followes former UN commander Romeo Dallaire returning to Rwanda 10 years after he witnessed the genocide. Pretty harsh stuff.
