Its that time of year again, when we are getting ready for Christmas, family and Santa. Sadly not everyone will be looking forward with anticipation, instead simple hoping for food, warmth or a small present. Thankfully there are goups like 'Little Blue Heroes' and 'Barnados' out there. Both help the youngest and most vulnerable in society and this Christmas we ask that you join us in making a donation at https://www.littleblueheroes.org/donate/ or https://www.barnardos.ie/christmas

Kinda like a rehash of 'Time Tunnel' for those of us of that ilk who would remember Saturday morning TV back in the day. 

It's actually not that bad. It helps that https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abigail_Spencer features

Anybody watches Hitlers People in RTÉ 2, it's in the player now.

Documentary about Saul Padover, a Jewish social scientist who moved from Vienna to New York in 1929. He came back as a Major in a US Army Psyc warfare unit in 1944 -45.

His job was to debrief Germans, trying to find out how they stuck with Hitler and his ideology to the bitter end. It was interesting and scary to see how outwardly intelligent and normal people can be won over by extremist madness.
Some Germans weren't repentant even when they were shown the concentration camps, gave out about being shown them.

Very topical at the moment.

I saw that too. Fascinating show. German people seemed completely deluded as to the cause of their problems.

People happily accept reports that blame others for their issues. Look at Trump at the moment and remember that ww1 defeat was still fresh in the german minds and their country was in the shitter. People also forget how long the Nazi party was around for, it wasnt like Hitlet came out of nowhere in 1939

There’s a documentary on Netflix about Hitlers bodyguards, worth watching as it looks at how the Nazi Party came about and the polictial and Social climates in Germany at the time.

Latest Netflix binge is Peaky Blinders. I’m not a Cillian Murphy fan. Ya I’m loving the series.

It's brilliant fact "based" but with poetic license. I was in parts of Black Country where it's filmed and was at original Garrison pub, sadly closed
