WOW - that was a great documentary. I didn't see the piece where Al Jazeera phoned up Sky News and had a go at them for using Al Jazeera video. Did anyone else see it?



There is a interview with the director on the BBCi http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcfour/documentaries/storyville/jehane-noujaim.shtmlwebsite

No Johnnie i didn't see it either and i never moved of the sofa during the peice so guess they must have cut up, but Oh how we love Geoff Mead and his "Joker" comment.



Good bit of TV IMO

I remember that incident very well. An Aljazeera employee is on the phone talking to someone at SN. As he's talking on the phone he is watching SN literally pinching Aljazeera footage and obscuring their logo. It's very embarrassing for SN who are always quick to judge AlJazeera.



The scene is from a BBC documentary - The Control Room (I think) - which was broadcast on BBC World about a year ago.

I taped it on VHS. Does this forum support VHS?
