All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace

I've always found Adam Curtis's documentaries chilling. 

Via Bruce Sterling, I've gotten wind of the latest: "All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace," which addresses network culture. It starts on 23 May BBC 2.

Imagine, a country whose government actually funds documentaries like this.

There is quite a buzz about this, looking forward to seeing the result. Oh and as for "Imagine, a country whose government actually funds documentaries like this." Yes, wonderful isn't it. Just a shame the current government is doing all it can to limit the BBC's ability to continue to do so.

Govt. funded?

It's not funded by the government.
We all pay a compulsory licence fee to fund the BBC.
Mostly, the money is spent on garbage, with a few rare exceptions.
The majority of the content (BBC1 accounts for 25% of the BBC budget) is spent on game shows/the national lottery and 'Eastenders'.
