Watch Panorama Tonight!

Posted by Martin Poulter on 14 May 2007

As has received much attention in the press, in tonight’s Panorama, veteran journalist John Sweeney reports on the Scientology cult. In an interview on the Heaven and Earth Show, the editor of Panorama gives some background, describing harassment and intimidation techniques that were used against the BBC film crew. Scientology has made its own documentary attacking the BBC (Independent on Sunday coverage), and I expect these bizarre tactics will be the focus of the programme tonight.

Scientology is currently deepening its campaign against the men in white coats (psychiatrists): blaming them for everything from the Virginia Tech shootings to the Holocaust.

Loads of Scientology-related video clips on the Xenu TV blog.

Update, Tuesday 15th: the programme is currently available to view on the Panorama web site

Dance, dance, the musical suit

Posted by Paul Smith on 4 May 2007

Come see the man with the musical suit! Yes, he looks a bit like a reject from Tron, but stick with it! You can create your own tunes, and Pjotro will dance along to your ‘compositions’, which you can then save out. Quite neat, although not enough guitars for my taste.

A little thought experiment for you to try at your leisure.

See if you can count the number of times that a ball is passed between white-shirted people. It’s not as easy as you may think.
