1/3 - The Men Who Stare at Goats
"People are basically nutty," says a CIA psychologist at the start of this extraordinary series, and by the end you may well believe he's right. It's presented by Jon Ronson, who has spent three years piecing together the history of bizarre paranormal programmes conducted by the US military and others. Take Maj Gen Albert Stubblebine III, once chief of army intelligence, now retired. He cheerfully admits to Ronson that he spent a good deal of time in the 1980s attempting to walk through his office wall, because he thought it would be a useful skill for a general to have, and, after all, the wall and he were both made of atoms that were mostly air. He kept banging his nose, but he kept trying. It's just one jaw-dropping delusion among many.

1st earth battalion, thought death, goat labs, walking through walls this really does encompass the total wackiness of the USA. Lets face it when they voted bush back in and then a couple of days later air a show like this makes you wonder if the brit media are trying to tell you something.

I’ve just watched the first of three episodes of the Channel 4 documentary, and it was really rather good.
