This is the famous BBC documentary "The century of the self" episode 1: "Happiness Machines" . The whole series is available on video.google website.The addition from my part is the GREEK subtitles. You can find a full overview of the whole series on the wikipedia website: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Century_of_the_self .
I downloaded this documentary from video google website some 2 years ago and I was fascinated and somewhat shocked by the ideas and facts presented inside which can be summarized in "how those in power have used Freud's theories to try and control the dangerous crowd in an age of mass democracy" .
If the facts and ideas presented hold true then this use of Freud's ideas does not only have deeply political consequences but also is profoundly antihumanitarian. These prompted me into subtitling this documentary in Greek so that every, no english speaking, Greek can watch this documentary and understand the extent of psychological violence that is being exerted on him by advertisers and the government.
PS: While composing the subtitles the whole series WITH greek subtitles was uploaded on the greek website tvxs.gr, BUT unfortunately the video is not downloadable and the greek subtitles are embedded.
