  • Netflix provides a better opportunity for documentary content distribution than Discovery

    In the 1990s when satellite distribution of television content was in it’s infancy we got a satellite dish and I would watch the Discovery Channel from the start of the broadcast day to when the programmes were played for the second time that day.

    Mythbusters: A Fun Documentary Series

    Recently Netflix Switzerland made Mythbusters available on their service. As I watched episode after episode I noticed the camaraderie between those who participate in the show.

  • Edwardian Farming, a BBC documentary series about the life of Edwardian farmers.

    Font del Truffe with T-Reb from Slawek Packo on Vimeo. Cave diving in France. Although there is a squeeze at the beginning the cave looks forgiving from a visibility point of view.

  • Vincent Cochetel speaking at TEDxPlaceDesNations

    Vincent Cochetel gave a very good speech at TEDxPlaceDesNations in December. He received a standing ovation for it’s content. I was lucky enough to be in the audience on that day. In light of today’s events I believe that this is the right video to share.

  • Rome’s Lost Empire

    Documentaries have been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. This year I started with the Documentary Rome’s Lost Empire narrated by Dan Snow. With Sarah, an associate professor they travel from Rome to Transylvania, to Petra and to Tunisia to uncover the Roman Frontier. Using a mixture of both satellite […]
