The Power of Nightmares

First broadcast in 2004 this series of three powerful documentaries seeks to help us understand the motivation behind the creation of a global politics of fear. If you have not seen the documentaries, do take some time to watch - they helped me to make sense of the inexplicable actions of our global political leaders but more importantly, understanding the politics of fear also helps us to free ourselves from its grip and take back control of our lives.

Because they were broadcast on three separate nights, each of these documentaries starts with same introduction - so don't think you are about to watch the same episode again - I have checked and made sure that they are the three separate episodes - each lasting about one hour.
