9/11: The Conspiracy Files. New BBC TV series.

Hi All

Spotted this on BBC website re upcoming series to be shown nationally in the UK.

Series overview


9/11 episode


The BBC is obliged to provide balanced, unbiased reporting.

We shall see.


I wouldn't hold your

I wouldn't hold your breath.

"Often people believe in a conspiracy when no other explanation seems to fit the bill, particularly when trying to work out the exact linkages of blame and causation in a globally connected world."

Actually, most so-called "conspiracy theories" merely fill in the blanks that the "mainstream media" such as the BBC purposefully ignore. Mainstream media avoids (truly) taboo subjects until safely at a distance, say a decade or two after the fact. Thus, the BBC itself produced an excellent documentary on Operation Gladio -- about twenty years too late. This "bastion of integrity" was also happy to pimp fantasies about WMD's during the build up to the Iraq war; now that the war is no longer viable, they happily admit their "mistakes".

Expect a lot of pop psychology about "paranoia" and "post-modernism" and a feigned ignorance about actual conspiracy.
They will throw us a bone or two but the predominant message will be that "conspiracy theory" is primarily a psycological affliction born of modern anxiety and confusion.

A thousand bucks they don't mention the war games of 911.

Get the f*ck out of my face

Get the f*ck out of my face BBC, you patronizing, politically castrated, government propagandising, intellectually prostituted, scumfu*king sell-out pieces of criminal SHIT!

Tell us how you really feel.

It's not good to keep it bottled up inside, DBLS.


When it starts with...

Incredibly some believe the American Government allowed or actively helped the attacks on the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon.

It does not sound as though it will be fair and balanced... Time will tell.

"The Conspiracy Files",

"The Conspiracy Files", laughable, looks like someone doesn’t have even an ounce of creativity over at the trusty old, honest vanguard of truth that is the "Beeb", that glorious national treasure, what would people do with out it, oh yea not have to pay a TV license for one. What retards, I bet it went like "err we need something stereotypically goofy and conspiratorial sounding, errm,... X-Files! Shoot can't have that, errrm X-files.. Conspiracy.. X-files...err.....hmmm... CONSPIRACY-FILES!! That's it, how genius!!!" Assholes.

Yeah, more brainwashing

Yeah, more brainwashing material to be irradiated into your occular cavities! Yeah!

Seriously, turn off your TVs, or better yet get rid of them... Life is too short to sit in front of a box of glass, metal and plastic.

And the list of subjects insures the series will be propaganda.  Of all of the "conspiracies" to be investigated by the BCC I would think the 7/7 London Bombings would be at the top of the list if they wanted to get viewership, even if they were to softball the subject.  The total lack of the 7/7 incident means they don't even want to approach it as they couldn't fool everyone about the details that interested views would be aware of. 


"Life is too short

to sit in front of a box of glass, metal and plastic"

True. Everyone get TFTs!

On Peter Knight

Yeah, this is main stream TV, but maybe it's the best we got, or could hope for. Ok maybe not, but I don't think the guy creating this show is going to fight for our cause, but he's not going to call us crazy.

The main page says "by Peter Knight." Peter Knight has written a book, from JFK to the X-Files. Now it doesn't give evidence on why or how JFK was killed, but a reviewer says, "[c]onspiracy theories, in his view, reflect a general skepticism of governmental authority, covert actions, 'official' versions of history, and, more broadly, express a philosophical anxiety about agency and causality in these postmodern, poststructural times -- and he argues that this skepticism is largely justified."

I also thought this profile of him is interesting. Note, he wants to do a job, and the BBC wants to make money making programs that we will watch, so I'm sure there's some stuff he won't be able to say (for instance why not a show on 1913 or 7/7), but at least the guy making the show doesn't think we are crazy. He may or may not be an activist... It seems to me like some hippy doing his research paper on Phish. He digs the band, and he wants to pass the class at the same time. The problem is, it's hard to play to both audiences at the same time, and that might be the reason this show could be more disinfo than truth.

Another interesting part of

Another interesting part of that review on his book...

"But in Knight's analysis, conspiracies do appear ubiquitous, as is evidenced from the following impressive list of acronyms and ideas he references, which I abbreviate here: JFK, RFK, MLK, Malcolm X, Marilyn Monroe, MK-ULTRA, Operation Paperclip, Phoenix, Mongoose, Majestic-12, COINTELPRO, Sirhan Sirhan, LSD, MIA, CIA, FBI, NSA, Secret Service, Roswell, Area 51, Tuskegee, Jonestown, Chappaquiddick, Waco, Oklahoma, Watergate, Iran-Contra, October Surprise, Savings & Loan, Whitewater, Lockerbie, TWA Flight 800, O.J., Ebola, AIDS, crack cocaine, black helicopters, gray aliens, magic bullet, lone nut. Not to mention the numerous books, television shows, and films that overtly thematize conspiracies: The Crying of Lot 49 (1966), Gravity's Rainbow (1973), Vineland (1990, all by Pynchon), Libra (1988), Underworld (1997 -- all by DeLillo), The X-Files (Carter 1993), The Prisoner (Asher 1967), The Manchurian Candidate (Frankenheimer 1962), The Parallax View (Pakula 1974), Three Days of the Condor (Pollack 1975), All the President's Men (Pakula 1976), The Net (Winkler 1995), Strange Days (Bigelow 1995), JFK (Stone 1991), and, obviously, Conspiracy Theory (Donner 1997). By the end of the book, you begin to feel that he is on to something."

Let's all pray that they do what is right and ....

...NOT just push the Bush-Blair influence that could infect England's main stream news media like Bush has infected ours - with terminal silence.

Think positive, not negative, believe it will help and it will.

I once worked at a Cathedral. The Dean of the Cathedral once told me that there is no such thing as bad publicity because even bad publicity means you are succeeding because you are being talked about, and isn't that what you want publicity for in the first place - to be known ?

I just read the summary for

I just read the summary for the OK City show. If they want people to know why others believe that's a conspiracy, all they need to do is loop this video for an hour.

I'm sensing sceptism.....

At the very least it puts the subject on the table.

I too had a little google search on Peter Knight, his interest would appear to be academic analysis of the (entirely justifiable) mistrust phenomena not good v bad, right v wrong etc. For the impatient, I understand the desire to have the guilty removed from authority and held to account, however there are still millions of westerners who accept the official story because they havent had it suggested otherwise. Three months ago I was one of them. I still have difficulty getting my head around the enormity and danger of this situation. Its terrifying!

I really hope, perhaps naively, that such broadcasts can introduce the uninitiated to the possibility that their government may not have been, er, entirely truthful and curiosity is raised sufficiently for research/inevitable enlightenment.

The tide is turning, gradually, and is preferable to a tsunami reaction, public outrage declared to be anarchy, martial law. Public opinion will win the day and we're learning fast. Just keep spreading the word.
