Unfinished Business

This is the untold story of the greatest slaving nation in history. Up till now, Britain’s place in the history of slavery has been as the country that abolished the international slave trade.

Britain’s Slave Trade reveals the shameful truth behind this liberal facade, showing how the economic, social and cultural life of Britain would have been unrecognisable without slavery. Britain’s Slave Trade explains how a middling European power transformed itself into the ruler of the waves, tracing the impact this had on the British way of life and taking in the Industrial Revolution, the beginnings of Empire and the birth of modern racism along the way. It also unearths startling evidence showing how many families that think of themselves as ‘pure’ English stock are in fact descended from slave ancestors.

The Great Indian Wars

This ambitious, epic-length documentary program chronicles the heart-wrenching tale of European settlers' attempts to subvert, viscerally abuse, and in many cases kill off Native American Indians over the course of 350 years, as they themselves settled into North America. Beginning in 1540 - the year when explorer Francisco Vázquez de Coronado undertook his expedition to the Great Plains - a series of bloody battles transpired that lost tens of thousands of lives.
The program moves through this period, touching on such pivotal events as The Seminole Wars, The Battle of Tippecanoe, and ultimately, the Battle of Wounded Knee, where the outcome permanently altered the trajectory of American history. rottentomatoes.com

Women Of The Gulag

Women suffered greatly in the Gulag. Male camp employees, guards, and even other male prisoners sometimes raped and abused women. Some female prisoners took on “camp husbands” for protection and companionship. Some were pregnant on arrival or became pregnant while in the Gulag. Occasionally, Gulag authorities released pregnant women and women with young children in special amnesties. gulaghistory.org

Turkey introduces new measures limiting terror attacks broadcasting

"The Radio and Television Supreme Council (RTÜK) has introduced new measures limiting broadcasting after terror attacks.
The broadcasters will not be able to use any video footage or photographs of explosions or terror attacks other than those provided by officials. The moment of terror attacks and scenes showing the aftermath of the attack will not be broadcast, as well as the footage that shows people’s fear and panic at the site of the terror attack. The measures also state that correspondents and anchors will not be permitted to “use exaggerated statements involving agitation.” The ban on broadcasting the scene of attacks includes showing fire department vehicles, police vehicles, ambulance footage, witness accounts, officials at the scene, and evidence-collecting work. No information regarding where the incident took place and no map of the scene will be permitted to be shown, neither will be the names of terrorist organizations suspected of carrying out the attack."
