Deadliest Warrior, a show Aired ny Spike TV, is a documentary television show where historical or modern warriors and their weapons are used to determine which of them is the "deadliest" based upon tests performed during each episode.
The show first aired in April 2009 for its first season and was later followed by another two other seasons. In 2012 Geoff Desmoulin, one of the hosts alongside Dr Armand Dorian and Max Geiger ( later replaced by Richard "Mack" Machowitz) announced via twitter that spike had cancelled the series.
The Arts Council has axed Side Gallery as a revenue client in its ‘National Portfolio’. The reasons for the decision are:
1. The gallery is part of a collective and therefore doesn’t have a board;
2. The gallery needs Arts Council funding and therefore isn’t sustainable;
3. There are too many galleries dedicated to humanist documentary photography in Side’s geographical location.
This flies in the face of the fact that the collective has continued to deliver what is unquestionably the strongest cultural legacy created in the North East over the past 40 years.
Unlike many Arts organisations, its egalitarian collective governance has meant Side Gallery has never approached the Arts Council or Northern Arts for a bail-out. It is the only gallery in the country dedicated to documentary photography.
I saw a petition on this Web Site that was against naming a New York Street after presumed cop killer Mr. Mumia Abu-Jamal. He's been in jail wrongly convicted for too many years. He should have a street named after him for being slandered with Lies for So Long.
Several years ago I unexpectedly came across my 1st read of Mumia Abu-Jamal, on a Web Site. I didn't judge whether this was True or False. The second time I read about him was on my cell phone on a Blog and it mentioned a Mr. M. Shiffman. Now I have found a Blog about Mr. Michael Schiffman, who is an author in Germany and he wrote a book about Mr. Abu-Jamal and the contrived "evidence" that was made up about him. I just found Mr. Bennett's Blog talking to the author:
If you Really are concerned about Justice for Mumia Abu-Jamal you'll see that the cops harassed and threatened witnesses, so that they would lie under oath! It was a staged trial and Not a Real Deserved trial:
Mr. Abu-Jamal did get a street named after him after all. At the very least Why is he still in jail after a Witness as late as last Oct./08, came forward and admitted that she was harassed, so that she would be forced to lie at his trial! So he didn't kill that cop. Someone at the crime scene, over heard a cop saying the name of the person who really killed the cop. The cops also re-arranged the crime scene too!
I find it unconscionable that Mr. Abu-Jamal is still locked up! A Lot of people internationally know he's innocent because of the facts. I hope he is released.
There are only two family tree programmes on British TV screens at the moment as far as I know - Who do you think you are? on BBC1 with repeats on the satellite channel, Yesterday and occasionally on another satellite channel Watch, and also Do you think you're Royal on Sky 1 and repeats on satellite channel, Sky Real Lives.
BBC Wales has its own programme called Coming Home but this is only available to people who live in Wales or to people with satellite and I believe the Ireland may have its own programme.
I believe that more of this type of programming should be on TV in the UK (not just about celebrities, but about real people too!) because it is one of the biggest hobbies/pastimes/interests not just for people in the UK but worldwide nowadays and is growing and the programmes can help people with their research!
'Lobby the BBC to reverse its decision to axe the Rough Justice programe'
"This is a programme that has helped to quash 15 convictions, overturning some appalling miscarriages of justice. It may not sound like a lot in 27 years, but that's 15 lives utterly changed and 15 victories for truth and fairness, an achievement that offered hope to many wrongly convicted prisoners languishing in Britain's jails."

In 2003, the BBC commissioned a 5-part documentary series, focussing on 5 seperate country villages. To this day, it has never been broadcast. Please help us to get the series on air!
In 2003, the BBC commissioned a documentary series called "Eye On...", focussing on a different little village in the UK for each episode. Having filmed it and edited it, at great expense, the series was shelved. We need support to get the series screened! Thank you.
