  Sky One : Conspiracies
I've just watched a program on Sky One.
It was called Conspiracies and it's running for the next 4 weeks.

The Sky One programs guide says this :

First in a four-part series presented by Danny Wallace, in which he scrutinises worldwide conspiracy theories. In this episode he examines the premise that the conflict and destruction of the 21st century have been created by the US government in order to achieve world domination

The examination centres around the bombings of the World Trade Center (sic) and The Pentagon that occured of September the 11th. Ironically, the link above points to the inevitable Sky repeat that will occur this Saturday, September the 11th at 23:00hrs (fellow Discordians can Hail Eris at this minor anomally).

I watched this documentary as someone who already knew all of the facts, which wasn't strictly true - I'd never heard the one about the Anti-Terrorist Insurance only being taken out a few months before the strikes. There was also the claim that a 15 Million (US$) investment netted 3.55 Billion (US$). I've not checked these yet. It seems far fetched.

However, the striking thing about this piece was the structure, the story it told, and the way it told it.

The first 3rd was a run down as to what happened on 11th of September, who the main kooks were and why they had enough crediblity to appear on the show. There was some documentry evidence of the pResident's reaction as the attacks took place and a few fleeting glances of Mr Moore after F911 was finally mentioned. I was suprised they showed the Bush - Now watch this drive clip - but it was all soon to be washed away.

To be fair, the take on the reasons, consequences, and possible scenarios of "The WTC Disaster", "TWA 500", and "HITLER" - of course he get's a mention -he was a vegetarian, you know? are presented by well researched, intelligent people. And the conspiracy theorists (oh yes - they did Pearl Harbour as well) seem to get slowly watered down. To the point of total ridicule.

It's worth a watch: Tin Foil Helmet Optional - and yes there is a bit about mind control.
