Last night on television: The Beckoning Silence (Channel 4)

By Patricia Wynn Davies

For all the many documentaries about courageous individuals who undertake hazardous adventures that turn into feats of harrowing endurance, it’s still hard to understand why certain people take such enormous risks, with the result that the Himalayas and the Alps, for example, are littered with corpses.

In The Beckoning Silence, the first in an Edge of Endurance season on Channel 4, climber Joe Simpson set off to recount the story of one of those tragedies, one it turned out he was particularly well-attuned to tell. We started by reference to the now famous accident Simpson had in the Andes at age 25, when climbing partner Simon Yates was forced to cut Simpson’s rope, sending him hurtling hundreds of feet into a crevasse – the disaster recounted in Simpson’s book Touching the Void and, especially nail-bitingly, in Kevin Macdonald’s film. Here, the main focus was the horrific experience, told in dramatic reconstruction, of a young German climber called Toni Kurz, who with three colleagues came to grief on the treacherous, sunless North Face of the Eiger in 1936. Or should I say the main one of a number of focuses, for Simpson was clearly determined to confront several topics at once.

One concerned the brooding, frightening but hypnotic power of the North Face, one of the most unforgiving terrains on the planet, and how the smallest change in circumstance can doom the best of men. Another was the similarity between Kurz’s tragic end and Simpson’s own near-death experience – Kurz died hanging on the end of a rope. “I am finished,” he had called out in a clear voice when he realised he would never come within reach of his rescue party a mere 50ft below. He had dangled on his rope for two days and two nights. Another subject was the difference between Simpson’s attitude to climbing after his accident and now. That meant a lot of strands for director Louise Osmond to keep under control, along with scenes on the mountain in which Simpson, with the aid of a helicopter at one point, retraced the nerve-wracking challenges that Kurz and his team had faced. The several layers certainly took this film out of the realms of the standard endurance documentary. It took its time in building up a head of tension, it wasn’t Touching the Void mark two, but it was ambitious and reflective.

That mountaineering is an unfathomable business was clear from the outset, when Simpson revealed that it was Kurz’s agonising death that inspired him to take up climbing in the first place – “because he never gave up, right to the end”.

Mountaineering was life-enhancing and life-defining. But in fact, Simpson’s views began to change some time back, with the misgivings he expressed in the book of The Beckoning Silence, published in 2002. Writing about his passion, he told us, had convinced him that it was also killing too many people, and now the passion was gone. Like other spent passions, I suppose, he now viewed it as “completely illogical”. Climbing was “not justifiable by any rational terms”, which is about as much as anyone can say

Cant find a link but Cocaine Cowboys is one of the greatest documentaries ever made. Its about the original people that imported cocaine into Miami and then the whole U.S. They talk to pretty much all the major players that imported it except for Griselda Blanco who was the Queen of Cocaine from in the 80s and 90s. There is a lad in it called Rivi who is interviewed from prison. He was the biggest hitman in Miami during the drug wars. He is ridiculously cool as well

There is another one call Cocaine Cowboys 2 which is about when Griselda Blanco went to prison and some black guy from the hood who was just street dealing hooked up with her and became one of the biggest dealers in the U.S.

The 1st one is a much watch documentary. Its real life Scarface stuff. The money they were making in such a short space of time was astronomical.

There are downloads all over the gaff but cant find streams

 Its a movie count not a documentary, pretty impressive how he survived and despite his near death experience he didnt 'find' God.
 
Not sure how much his climbing partner (ie the one who cut his rope) cooperated

My favourite journalist. Gets to the truth, and reveals things you would otherwise not know about, due to the ridiculously censored western media.

Loads of his docs on there, subjects like Australia, East Timor (one of the most shocking imo), Diego Garcia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Venezuela and loads of others.

Enlightening is not the word.

I can actually remember how the BBC 'reported' this when it was going on, and it was the opposite to the truth.

Yeah, that's right. And Chavez has been portrayed as a madman in the western media ever since.

Watch John Pilger's 'The War On Democracy' for the truth on various South American countries.

Death of Yugoslavia made by BBC and a few major continental broadcasters a few years ago, documents the break up of Yugoslavia with interview with all the major protaganists, Milosevic (Serb) Tjudman (Croat) UN, Yanks Eu etc. Pretty depressing harrowing viewing but riveting and surperbly told. Nobody comes out with much credit bar the Bosnia Muslims who were shat on by everybody and the yanks who finally forced the peace
 
also The Power of Nightmares again by BBC charting the rise is Islamic fundamentalism. a couple of particular stand out moments when the cave of Borra Borra were shown diagammatically on US TV like something out a James Bond when they where just caves, and the secret russian sub weapon, so secret that the US intel hasnt become aware of it

I read the book and watched the documentary on youtube. A great documentary to watch and it was especially interesting after I travelled through the balkans after the bulgaria game. 
 
The best documentary I ever watched was 9/11 when filmmaker James Hanlon and Jules and Gedeon Naudet were filming a documentary on a rookie New York City firefighter when they noticed a plane overhead. That plane would hit the World Trade Center. They rushed immediately to the scene. James Hanlon and the Naudets filmed throughout Sept. 11 and the days afterward from the firemen's perspective, as it became clear to them that this was the only known footage from inside the Twin Towers that day. A brillant and heartbreaking documentary that is the best I've ever seen.
 
Another great place to watch documentaries is the tg4 player.

Yeah, that's right. And Chavez has been portrayed as a madman in the western media ever since.

Watch John Pilger's 'The War On Democracy' for the truth on various South American countries.

I watched this the other night. It's unreal, I was glued to it the whole way through.

Deliver Us From Evil
 
An Oscar nominated documentary from a few years back about a paedophile Irish priest in California.  When the church elders found out about him, he was simply moved on to another parish.
 
There's a scene in the movie where the father of one of the victims breaks down in tears because he knows he facilitated the abuse of his daughter by inviting the priest to stay at their home.  Truly he is a picture of a broken man.  It makes you ashamed to be Catholic.

anyone got any good documentaries they've watched? saw one on the civil war in sri lanka which reached boiling point in 2008. It was prepared by channel 4 and provides conclusive evidence of war crimes in that country. not sure if any people are being prosecuted but raises serious questions not only to the sri lankan goverment but also the UN's handling of the whole situation (as usual, a complete f**k up).

Watched this a few weeks ago and I agree - best i've watched to date. I've been trying to get a hold of the follow ups : Paradise Lost 2 : Revelations but nowhere on the web seems to have it.
 
Spent hours reading up about the story then and watching random footage on Youtube.

I really enjoyed that documentary - it makes you very very angry but its well made and makes things clear -

Here in Poland people pay a fortune for credit, the average loan for a 50m2 apartment where people raise two kids is 50,000euro and most people have 25 year loans and will repay over 3 times what they borrow - its ridiculous profits -

2014 is an very important year for the banks - they have till july to have their houses in order- deposit to loan ratios and they will all be audited and regulated -

then the whole big sham will start all over again -
