Well spotted - do you know when the documentary will be on? (i.e is it this week - because today is the day that the TV listing mags normally come out of the week ahead - so is it this week's RT or next week's RT?)

Don't know if anyone's interested, but half an hour before this starts, there's a BBC2 programme about Bill Gates leaving Microsoft: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/7461783.stm

DaddyHoggy,

Could you send me a PM.

While never wanting to advocate Bittorenting, this program will never see the light of day on Antipodian tv.

...that's strange, I'm sure a friend of mine said he was a banker... ...at least, I think that was what he said...

That apart, I just can't bear to watch this series, it's too painful... :cry:
Very funny, Scotty, now beam down my clothes...

Yeah, maybe instead of calling the series "Brits Who Made The Modern World", it should be called "What Happens When Your Country's Run By Politicos, Accountants And Journalists". Or the shorter version: "Brits Who Were Controlled By Tits" :D
