Torrent description

Adam Curtis is a British television documentary producer. He currently works for
BBC Current Affairs. The Guardian wrote:

[Curtis] is perhaps the most acclaimed maker of serious television
programmes in Britain. His trademarks are long research, the revelatory use
of archive footage, telling interviews, and smooth, insistent voiceovers
concerned with the unnoticed deeper currents of recent history, narrated by
Curtis himself in tones that combine traditional BBC authority with
something more modern and sceptical: "I want to try to make people look at
things they think they know about in a new way." [1]
(http://www.guardian.co.uk/terrorism/story/0,12780,1327904,00.html)

Curtis's intensive use of archive footage is a distinctive touch of his. An
Observer profile notes:

Curtis has a remarkable feel for the serendipity of such moments, and an
obsessive skill in locating them. 'That kind of footage shows just how dull
I can be,' he admits, a little glumly. 'The BBC has an archive of all these
tapes where they have just dumped all the news items they have ever shown.
One tape for every three months. So what you get is this odd collage, an
accidental treasure trove. You sit in a darkened room, watch all these
little news moments, and look for connections.'

The Observer adds "if there has been a theme in Curtis's work since, it has been
to look at how different elites have tried to impose an ideology on their times,
and the tragi-comic consequences of those attempts."

History

Curtis previously taught politics at Oxford University but left for a career in
television. He got a job on the show That's Life where he learned to find humor
in serious subjects. He went on to make documentaries on more serious subjects
but retained his playful tone.
