Finding Neverland. A documentary on alleged abuses by Michael Jackson.

It's as shocking as it wasn't. I mean, his interest in young boys was always suspect, but what was most interesting is what really went on behind his weird facade. It concentrates on the mindset of the alleged abused and their parents, how MJ played everyone off against each other, the cover-ups, the court cases. It's compelling stuff and you come away fairly convinced. I know he's not around to defend himself, but if he were, it'd be the same thing - "it's all lies, they're attention seeking and only after my money" being the first line of defence from the crack team of lawyers (pretty much the same people that got OJ off).

We have friends who refuse to watch it as they don't want the music they love tarnished in any way, but that is one of his lines of defence. You have to put all that to one side.

Looking forward to the remake of Das Boot which starts on sky Atlantic this week, if it's as good as the original then I'll be more than happy
Just finished watching Series 1, Whilst it is not entirely set on the U-Boat it is a surprisingly good series, It flips between the U-Boat and the French town of La Rochelle, Which i think was the actual town where the submarines were based during WW2, The story and characters are really believable and gives you a real feel of what it was like to live during those dark days, There is a lot of tension in it and it does look like there could be a second series

If you're in to your ronk/pop music then rock along to BBC4 at 9pm tonight. Billy Bragg looks at the start of skiffle in the UK in the 1950s. Programme is called Rock Island Line: The Song That Made Britain Rock

Looking forward to this. Have it on record, just in case.
