"The year 1905 saw Russia submerged in a wave of mass political and social unrest, including terrorism, worker strikes, peasant unrest, and military mutinies. This led to the establishment of limited constitutional monarchy, the State Duma of the Russian Empire, the multi-party system, and the Russian Constitution of 1906.The Russian Revolution is the collective term for a series of revolutions in Russia in 1917, which destroyed the Tsarist autocracy and led to the creation of the Soviet Union. The Tsar was deposed and replaced by a provisional government in the first revolution of February 1917, which was focused on Petrograd. The February Revolution took place in the context of heavy military setbacks during the First World War, which left much of the army in a state of mutiny.The Soviets, which were led by more radical socialist factions, initially permitted the Provisional Government to rule, but insisted on a prerogative to influence the government and control various militias’ leading to the second revolution, during October, in which the Provisional Government was removed and replaced with a Bolshevik government.

The story of modern China told through the eyes of the villagers forced to sell their homes and give up their land to make way for massive urban development. Naturally they are outraged and fearful. Some say they will not bow to the will of the Government, while others ultimately embrace the opportunity to make a fortune. This is China as you've never seen it before: the China that's behind Australia's resources boom.White Horse Village is a tiny farming community deep in rural China. A decade ago, it became part of the biggest urbanisation project in human history that will take half a billion farmers across the country and turn them into city-dwelling consumers. The plan decreed that White Horse Village would grow from several hundred people to a city of 200,000 in under a decade.There's little doubt China's urbanisation is a massive social and economic gamble but, according to the Government, there's a clear logic. At present, 150 million Chinese living in regional areas must leave their families, travel to the cities to work and send money home to help their children survive and prosper. The social tension this creates is significant. To combat this problem, and to try to spread wealth across the country, the Government's plan is to dot the landscape with thousands of new cities. These centres will have new schools, universities and industrial areas all intended to deliver China a thriving, consuming middle class.

Both business and political world alike use certain psychological techniques in order to interpret, provoke and finally fulfill the desires of the public. The purpose of employment of these techniques is to make their products or speeches as pleasing and appealing as possible. The gravity of this issue can be seen from the statement of a Wall Street banker, Paul Mazur. From his point of view, the people should be trained to put their desires in front of their needs.

This documentary is concerned with the protest of the people in Burma, also known as Myanmar, against the ruling regime. The Buddhist monks join the protest, and what began as non violent protest will turn into the aggressive outburst of the military forces in order to suppress the protest. A series of events in August 2007, including the arrest of Aung San Suu Kyi, an elected official and a favorite of the people, will lead to a peaceful march. Because of the characteristic color of the monks’ robes, who participated in the protest, it was called the “Saffron Revolution”. Among the participants of the “Saffron Revolution” were political activists and students. In the course of the following three months there have been several thousands of arrests and an estimated 31 fatal casualties. The detained protesters were eventually released. The documentary contains footage that was smuggled from Burma with the help of a number of journalists and political activists. At the time of the protests, the country was in complete isolation and there was almost no communication with the outside world. The crucial role in the information updates, during the protests, played the members of the Democratic Voice of Burma.

"A documentary produced by G. Edward Griffin, Michael Murphy and Paul Wittenberger investigating chem-trails; the bio-engineering method adopted by governments to ‘apparently’ help with the issue of global warming, the only problem is that dumping thousands of tonnes of micronised aluminium and barium over nations around the world is having a devistating effect on the environment and the health of all living creatures.The activities of the government can be seen buy everyone; the chemical trails which are often criss-crossed in the skies by large jet plans often take several hours to dissapate and ofen days to reach the ground.With amounts of aluminium in excess of 60x (60,000%+) found in many remote places in the USA, hundreds of miles away from roads, communities and factories the sharp increases of aluminium deposits from chem-trails are the only possibilities.As aluminium deposits reach the roots of the plants and trees they begin to die through the change of PH levels in the soil. The effects are seen all over the world, but especially present in the USA and UK. Increases in dimentia cases caused by excessive amounts of aluminium in the brain was once throught to be caused by canned foods and softdrinks, and although could still be part of the problem, chem-trails are now understood to be the major cause.Trees and plants are dying, less stars are seen at night, changes in weather behaviour are being noticed, toxicity related health issues are on the increase, the government is playing God with the atmosphere and is killing everything.Backed up by independant scientific studies from professors and leading researchers around the world, What on Earth are they Spraying? is probably one of the best documentaries I’ve ever watched."

This short documentary is really good attempt by the British Hellenic Chamber of Commerce (BHCC) when they presented this at their Annual Conference in London on 28 June 2011 to dispel many of the myths and common misconceptions surrounding Greece and it people.It is really pertinent in 2012 because the economic situation in Greece has deteriorated…but the underlying principles and messages outlined in this short documentary/presentation hold true to this day (bar the statement on peaceful protesting perhaps).Greece is a timeless country and the beauty of the country and it’s people will remain as it has done over the previous centuries of torrid times.The documentary goes a long way to dispel many of the commonly held myths and beliefs and it does so in a very creative and simplistic way..which again is aligned to the Greek people themselves. The Greeks work more average hours than many of the leading European countries. They have invested heavily in new and modern technology and infrastructure.Greek exports have increased by approaching one third and they have a wealth of natural resources which can be developed to bring them out of the difficulties they currently face through the fault…not of their people but the people in power at the head of government. They have almost infinite sunshine giving immense potential for solar power generation. They have the constant Aegean winds for wind power and the potential with such a massive coastline for further power production… Green sustainable energy is required not just in Greece but around the world.. Greece also has a wealth of Natural Gas resource which is not fully exploited yet.Even though tourism was predicted to RISE by 20% in 2011 it probably fell somewhat due to the general economic world recession and in some small way due to the unrest in Greece in general. The fact remains that Greece is such a beautiful place, with beautiful people and beautiful weather that despite what politics dictate Greece as a whole will continue to be a dream destination for any tourist. great holiday destinations and a plethora of things to do see and visit again dispel many of the common myths. I myself have just returned from spending 4 months researching for a travel site www.mygreeceholiday.com and was simply enthralled by the country and will certainly be back there within the year.The music in the documentary is nicely in keeping with the flavour of the message being presented…views of magnificent blue flag beaches and wonderful museums and ancient ruins complement the key message at the end of the documentary. The Greeks are resilient and WILL come through this latest bout of dis-rest and economic uncertainty.If you wish to understand more about the work of the British Hellenic Chamber of Commerce (BHCC) go to their site here http://www.bhcc.gr/Another relevent documentary covered here on Documentarytube is to be found here http://www.documentarytube.com/coming-here-soon-greece-bust-and-broken

‘WACO: A New Revelation’ generated a flurry of interest as new revelations about the events that led up to the deaths of 79 men, women and children at Mount Carmel on April 19, 1993 came to light after investigators from MGA Studio’s film division became the first private citizens to gain access to the Waco investigation evidence lockers under the Freedom of Information Act in 1998.Upon examination, the evidence gathered by the federal officials appeared to contradict the FBI’s congressional testimony, raising serious and disquieting questions about events surrounding the siege at Mt. Carmel and the deaths of the Davidians.Agency reps have said that there were 3 cameras pointing at the front door of the building that would show everything from that day. Suspiciously, none of the footage could be found. Every one of those tapes vanished.This film caused the Justice Department and the FBI to reverse their long-held positions on Waco setting off an unprecedented event in the history of documentary film-making.

While enjoying the sweet taste of chocolate, the reality is totally different for African children.In 2001, consumers around the world were shocked to discover that child labor and slavery, trafficking and other abuses existed in the cocoa plantations in Ivory Coast, a country which produces nearly half the world’s cocoa. An avalanche of negative publicity and consumer demands for answers and solutions soon.Two members of U.S. Congress, Senator Tom Harkin of Iowa and Representative Eliot Engel, New York, addressed the issue by adding a pilot of a farm bill that proposes a federal system to certify and label chocolate products as a slave free.The measure was passed by the House of Representatives and has created a potential disaster for Cargill, Archer Daniels Midland Mars, Hershey, Nestle, Barry Callebaut, Cacao-Saf and other chocolate manufacturers. To avoid legislation that would have forced chocolate companies to label their products “without child labor” labels (for which many major chocolate makers do not qualify), the industry fought back and finally agreed to a voluntary protocol to end abusive child labor and forced labor on cocoa farms by 2005.The chocolate industry fought back. Ultimately, a compromise was reached to eliminate child labor in cocoa plantations in Ivory Coast in 2005. In 2005, the cocoa industry has not complied with the terms of the protocol, and a new deadline for 2008 was set. In 2008 the terms of the protocol is still not met, and another term for 2010 was set.Almost a decade after the chocolate companies, governments and foundations interested in particular spent millions of dollars in an effort to eradicate child labor and trafficking in the cocoa trade, has anything changed?Miki and U Roberto Romano Mistrati an investigation behind the scenes and see whether the allegations of child labor in the chocolate industry are present today.

An ongoing source of controversy in America, gun laws are increasingly polarising the Southern states and Washington. In Arizona, Tea Party supporting, heavily armed, vigilante groups are taking over.“The one thing we know about gun control is that it has never provided security”, argues former Arizona sheriff and local hero, Richard Mack. Despite a recent gun massacre in Tuscon, the majority still support free gun laws. Heavily armed citizens take Mexican border security into their own hands in this “state with a frontier mentality”. With over 100 new civilian militia groups forming in the last 2 years, it is fertile ground for Tea Party supporters. There is no doubt as to who is the real enemy here: “The greatest threat to our God-given American liberty is our own federal government”. With the cultural divide between North and South looking dangerously wide, Arizona is becoming more than a state: it’s a state of mind.

‘The Dark Side of the Moon’ aims to expose the truth behind the first moon landing.This film is meant to entertain as well as enlighten the viewers. To this end, it features an interview with Stanley Kubrick’s widow, who claims that Kubrick and other Hollywood producers were recruited to help the U.S. government win popular support so that money from the public fund could be used to finance the space programs.Kubrick’s 2001: a Space Odyssey (1968) had inspired a lot of people hence he was asked by the then President Nixon to ensure that no promotional opportunities were missed given that it apparently seemed very difficult to transmit live pictures from the first moon landing. Kubrick was provided a special NASA lens to shoot Barry Lyndon.This film deeply investigates this entire affair and illustrates how images could be manipulated and blended with facts, fiction and hypothesis to create a master piece of hoax. It further shows how archival footage, false documents, real interviews taken out of context or transformed through voice-over or dubbing, staged interviews, as well as, interviews with astronauts like Buzz Aldrin and others were used to create the video of the first moon landing.

‘Vaccination: The Hidden Truth’ is an investigative and extremely informative film in which fifteen people, including Dr. Viera Scheibner (a PhD researcher), five medical doctors and other well known researchers, reveal what is really going on in the context of illness and vaccines.It is a commonly held belief that vaccines help children keep healthy and the government pushes it heavily for prevention of diseases. But the film challenges this very premise and tries to bring to the forefront answers to questions such as Was it really vaccines that saved us? Why are they only counterproductive? How are many statistics misleading?What do vaccines contain? What are they doing to our organs, immune systems, even our genes? Are childhood diseases really dangerous to healthy children? Why does vaccination continue? What are our rights? Can vaccine damage be evaluated and countered? What is the true key to immunity?The documentary confronts the debatable question whether childhood diseases be done away with given that they help in the development of a strong immunity system in the childhood which keeps people healthy even in the later stages of their lives or should vaccinations be continued even though some results show how vaccines are ineffective and times even harmful.In a broad sense, instead of resulting in prophylaxis, meaning prevention, all responses to vaccines actually fall under the broad umbrella of anaphylaxis, which means sensitization, the OPPOSITE of immunization.The film thus tries to present the not-so-rosy picture of the phenomenon called vaccination educating people about the dangers it poses and the reasons as to why the government fervently promotes it.

The film set in 2015 is follows the investigation into the two girls’ deaths by an drug agent who worked closely with an ex-drugs policeman. The film shows the differing cases that emerged. Experts such as former chief constable Francis Wilkinson argued the case for pro-legalization, while David Raynes of the National Drug Prevention Alliance was one of the voices arguing against.Based on rigorous research and interviews with experts, the documentary delves on arguments that suggest drugs like cocaine and heroin must be made legal, and examines how a legal and regulated system of drugs would work.The film shows that the government has decided to legalize drugs. UK, along with European countries, Canada and Australia, has opted out of the UN treaties which control drugs. The film shows that the trade from possession to use and production to supply of drugs has been legalized.The drama opens with the deaths of two girls in a club which is licensed to sell drugs. In the scenario, most drugs are readily available, with government health warnings and lists of ingredients, from various outlets. Drugs of addiction, like heroin, are free but only available on prescription from Swiss-styled heroin clinics. Cocaine is still illegal. The whole trade is regulated by a new agency, called Ofdrug.The film raises the question if drug legalization could really reduce crime overall, and if it could make drug use any safer.

"The Truth behind the Moon Landings is a documentary which challenges and debunks the conspiracy theories surrounding the first landing on Moon. The film attempts to answer the question if the Apollo 11 astronauts really landed on the moon or whether it was just a hoax created by NASA to satisfy political demands.In a period of global political suspicion the greatest conspiracy theory of all time would make the greatest achievement of man nothing but a hoax. Bill Kaysing the former head of technical publications for Rocketdyne is considered to be the father of moon conspiracy theorists. He and Ralph René the author of NASA Mooned America provide in their works the evidence supporting their theory. They talk about contradicting shadows in photographs, moon walk was a slow motion film, no stars in night sky, flag fluttering in a breeze, lack of Computing power to land the lunar module, can’t manipulate camera to take photographs, dust below lunar module should have been disturbed, film would be damaged by radiation to assist their theory."
