    Aside from the occasional moment of cringe where it is obvious the pre-written Orwell lines don't quite line up with the interviewers questions this is a fabulous documentary and the Orwell actor is a doppelgänger to the real thing.

    Something about Orwell and the British Bolshevik Corperation I do not trust. Orwell seems a fine enough fellow, hearts in the right place. Fascist Order may be stifling for some. But communist Chaos is hell for all.

    This documentary is classic co-intel propaganda staged by the British brainwashing corporation BBC. The actor for Eric Blair is merely a puppet for the controllers- Their Hegelian dialect in full force to bluff the masses. He suffered a neck shot, no penicillin and survived( no penicillin for the poor back then ) and had a camera crew nearby- totally staged- come on people, wake up- this is an orchestrated lie. This doco is truly Orwellian in its true sense. Communists supporting then attacking the Spanish militia……………….. 1984
    Who really is the author of 1984?…………………… no one will know its in room 101

    "the one eyed scoundrels of the nineteenth century; praised God and filled their pockets" nothing has changed as the one eye scoundrels are still omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient in the 21 st century they are the blood lines of the ruling elite and colonial privateers/pirates dressed in a different fabric and style but they egotisticly flaunt their occult gnosis to the working profane in mockery.

    How come not once was the word anarchist or anarcho-syndicalist or syndicalist used?

    and we're meant to believe this is all true from the BBC and not to question it…which George Orwell warned us about in his books.

    I've gotten about half-way through this, but am giving up – I find the 'mockumentary' aspect too jarring, distracting, and, ultimately, silly. Orwell deserves better.

    Marcia Smith… The info super highway, cell phones etc are simply subservient communication devices. Big Brother is a repressive, totalitarian mind set. The issue is government and their paranoid / hysterical need to control their citizens. People who say there is no problem… are the problem. Study modern totalitarian propaganda, then reply.

    Why is, Robert De Groot's comment highlighted and not my reply to it? His insistence that we are all free agents and that governments can be changed is only true if you overlook the sophisticated propaganda employed to control the masses. Mind control is the name of the game people. Tell a lie often enough and it becomes the truth… and we all go to war.

    He was so correct about India. I wonder what thoughts he would have had about the sciences, ideologies and theories that the Western world singlehandedly stole from Indian culture to use of their own. Funny how short a time ago this was.

    I wonder what Orwell would have added/taken away/thought about in relation to 1984 if he could have anticipated the advent of the internet? In this respect I'd say Huxley's Brave New World comes closer to the present day situation. Brilliant documentary though, and an amazing human being!

    No audio-visual documentation of the great man at that time ? How much audio-visual documentation of our great contemporary scientists and artists abounds today ? Correct me if I am wrong, but I suspect that there is deplorably little. What we learn from history, is that we don't learn from history.

    Hmm… I wonder why there are no surviving recordings or videos of George Orwell? That's strange. Very strange.

    Orwell was trying to warn the world about all kinds of political extremism (Left AND Right) but was equally prescient about increasing political intereference by Mass Media. If anyone deserves the title 'Big Brother' it is Mr Rupert Murdoch. A great big dose of Socialism should have stopped him in his tracks 50 years, but he left Australia and successive Left-leaning Labor governments, for the greener/richer/greedier fields of Thatcher's Britain and Reagan's America..

    True to form from the BBC, the actor playing Orwell Chris Langham was arrested and convicted in 2005 for downloading and creating indecent / abusive images of children. The judge said before sentencing him to 10 months that "some of the children viewed are clearly prepubescent… The worst video was 15 minutes long and it showed in quite graphic detail the sadistic brutalisation of an eight-year-old girl in the UK, with some serious sexual offences against her." The BBC have quiet the record when it comes to employing and protecting Paedophiles. Why the British pay a fee for the BBC to continue to operate is beyond belief. They need to be held to account.

    This is as relevant today as ever is has been in the past. There are elements in its contents that apply to the developed world, otherwise known as the free world. How free are people?

    Such a load of crap. This guy was "made," and it is impossible to even determine if he himself wrote his most famous novels. 1984 is a work of predictive programming. The ending is the most important aspect to consider. It is calculated to demoralize the reader even while making him feel as though he is privileged to "learn the truth," which is, of course, no more true that what Winston Smith believed he had learned. The book is a self fulfilling prophecy of mental thoughtcraft which greatly resembles warlockry.

    I found this a very shallow 'documentary' about a very complex man. Chris Langham is just playing himself (or at least the same character he always plays in everything he does), and I grew annoyed with the fake newsreels and home movies, and the pretentious way the shots always lingered for several seconds after he'd finished speaking.

    Human rights…… the right to free education limited only by individual capabilities…… the right to basic shelter …..the right to clean water……the right to healthy food….. the right to free medical care….. the right to a safe environment …… All animals in your local zoo are given this without question…….. when are we going to stop this "us versus them" Ideology …… the insanity that keeps the .001% on top of the pyramid…. we have to become aware that the most important aspect of our lives is our children's minds….and any limitation of the individual mind to grow is how they control us…… This Central Bank Satanic corporation war driven economy that sees our children as a food source is the enemy…… we must judge the tree by its fruit …… and forget charity …….Real Love of the neighbor is changing value system towards enhancing the minds of the future…… all ideologies and differences will fall apart when we measured our Greatness on the minds and health of our children….

    Along with "Lord of the Flies", I consider "1984" the most important and relevant books of the 20th century. It becomes more and more relevant every day, and Newspeak and dumbing down more and more apparent. It's important to distinguish that in a dictatorship the rulers seek to control behavior, but in totalitarianism the rulers seek to control thought. What a great last line: "he loved Big Brother."
