I'm not sure if it's the same one. I think it might be a new one actually as I remember the other one being shorter. This one is just as good though.

I must say that the bloke sitting in front of the TV sets with the headphones on watching the news channels and doing the translating (and w*nker symbols when Bush comes on screen) is pretty funny. Laughing

oh he was fab. The channel seems split between very clever people who can see things behind the stories (like the random flag ) and people who are, dare I say, anti-American.

Very insightful film though. Best thing I've watched in a while.
