The Power of Nightmares

Towards the end of last year, the BBC screened a three-part documentary called The Power Of Nightmares which provided an excellent view of the background to our current political climate – how the rise of the neo-conservatives in the US and the radical Islamists influenced the creation of a world that neither intended. Basically, the programme went on to state that a highly-organised group such as Al-Qaeda does not exist, but has been pushed to us by western politicians to ensure that they still have a relevant role in society following the end of the Cold War. Powerful stuff.

The best news is that the series is being repeated on BBC Two this week; it’s on at 23:20 on Tuesday 18, Wednesday 19 and Thursday 20 January 2005 and I urge you to watch it.
