    "A deeply humanistic take on a difficult subject" ...

    3 Irish women spend the night in London after
    traveling for an illegal procedure.

    A Secret Journey


    In an apartment in London, a small group of Irish women spends the night. They don't seem to have a lot in common and seem very different in personality. One, Mickey, is young and spiky in demeanor; another, Helen, is young as well, and outgoing and chatty; another seems to be isolated in her own sadness and depression. They're joined by the kind, gentle yet no-nonsense owner of the apartment.

    But they have one important thing in common: they've left Ireland to travel to the U.K., where they can legally terminate their pregnancies.

    This reflective, sensitively-calibrated social drama -- directed by Plum Stupple-Harris and written by Isobel McConnell and Stupple-Harris -- goes deep inside a headline-making social issue, turning facts and policy into a deeply emotional journey that is fraught with pain but hopeful with connection.

    Holidaying In England's Most Deprived Town


    Dec 18, 2023
    🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 England, one of the world's richest nations. But not everyone gets to enjoy the benefits of being born here. Just 60 miles from the bright lights of London is Jaywick which is statistically the most deprived town in the nation. I visited with my friends @BackpackerBen and @TimmyKarter for a weekend by the beach. Join us!

    Thanks to the staff at the Black Rock restaurant in Clacton who looked after us and the great people of Clacton and Jaywick.

    Tales from the Earthfiles ...

    The Mystery of the Big Dark Pyramid in Alaska.

    Linda Moulton Howe
    Dec 27, 2023 REBROADCAST


    In the cold, remote stretches of Alaska, under the shadow of Mount McKinley, an enigma lurks beneath the earth. China's nuclear test inadvertently uncovered a mystery that has drawn the attention of military officers, journalists, engineers, and even remote viewers. From unexpected TV broadcasts to whispered rumors among war veterans, the tale of an underground pyramid seemingly a relic of ancient sophistication challenges our understanding of human history. With powers said to light up entire nations and an architecture that appears otherworldly, the legend of the Alaskan pyramid raises more questions than answers.

    Immediate Family | Official Trailer
    | Carole King, James Taylor


    Immediate Family tracks the rise and collaborations of a group of legendary studio musicians through the 1970s and onward, chronicling their illustrious partnerships and their formidable record of hit-making. Directed by Denny Tedesco, whose documentary The Wrecking Crew followed the first wave of studio musicians in the 60s, the film reveals the machinery behind the booming era of the singer-songwriter, when the talents of these four musicians were in furious demand. The foundations of their enduring friendship, formed on the road and in studios, is recalled with dynamite clarity —reminisced with fondness through intimate interviews with the guys themselves, as well as the memories of some of rock’s most iconic voices. Immediate Family is a backstage tour spanning multiple eras of musical history.
