I recently watched “Century of the Self” and found it to be one of the best told histories of the 20th century.
From the Wikipedia:
The documentary describes the impact of Freud’s theories on the perception of the human mind, and the ways public relations agencies and politicians have used this during the last 100 years for their “engineering of consent”.
You can watch it on Google Video (for now): part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4.
One reply on “BBC documentary”
I've only seen the first part. It impressed me.
