Documentary on the Friedmans, a seemingly typical, upper-middle-class Jewish family whose world is instantly transformed when the father and his youngest son are arrested and charged with shocking and horrible crimes.
This countdown voted by the British public was a very interesting countdown. I had an idea of what might be number one, but I wasn't even close. Documentaries are a picture of real life in the lives of others. They had all sorts of things that were documented for TV and film. They had war, political, food issues, historical events, accidents, gun issues, and basically life. The documentaries that featured included: The Fog of War, Nanoon of the North, Driving School, The Human Body, The War Game, Spellbound (not Hitchcock's), The Power of Nightmares, Wife Swap, Around the World in 80 Days (with Michael Palin), Walking with Dinosaurs, Super Size Me, The Family, Farenheit 9/11, The Boy Whose Skin Fell Off, The World At War, Bowling for Columbine, Touching the Void and number one was Seven Up. With contributions by Michael Apted, Sir David Attenborough, Charles Dance, Pam Ferris, James King, Kevin Macdonald, Nell McAndrew, Michael Palin, Sir Jimmy Savile and Morgan Spurlock, and narrated by Zoë Wanamaker. Very good!
