McLibel is the inside story of the postman and the gardener who took on the McDonald's Corporation. Filmed over three years, the documentary follows Helen Steel and Dave Morris, anonymous campaigners who become unlikely global heroes. Struggling to defend themselves in the longest trial in English history, they face infiltration by spies, secret meetings with corporate executives, 40,000 pages of background reading, and a visit from Ronald McDonald. Using interviews with witnesses and reconstructions of key moments in court, the film examines the main issues in the trial: nutrition, animals, advertising, employment, the environment, and freedom of speech.

This outstanding documentary should be seen by everyone who ever visited or even thought about visiting a McDonald's restaurant. It is utterly inspiring, real David and Goliath stuff.
The case is mentioned in the brilliantly researched, funny and informative book by Eric Schlosser, 'Fast Food Nation' but the documentary goes into far greater detail. Get your hands on it if you can.
I accidentally put this review on the 1997 mini series version of the same story. I haven't seen the dramatised version, but if it's anything like as good as this documentary,then it's probably worth watching too if you can find it.
