The Force
Episode 1 (of 3)
Excellent new documentary series which follows a real-life police case from beginning to end (assuming there is one), with full access to every element of the police's activities during the investigation. As well as being fascinating in its own right, it neatly shows up the veracity (or lack thereof) of the many TV shows about criminal investigation.
[Watch it (again) on 4oD.]

INTERVIEW - Charlie Brooker by Ben Parfitt
(from MCV)
Interesting three-part interview with Charlie Brooker relating to his recent Gameswipe TV programme. An interesting read for both gamers and those baffled by gamers -- for the former, it might explain why non-gamers find it all so odd; and for the latter, it might help explain it a bit. Maybe.
In particular, Part Three's discussion of violence in games is definitely worth a read, as Brooker has several objective, intelligent and worthwhile points to make.
