The Living Dead, a three-hour series, was the second major documentary by Adam Curtis, shown on the BBC in 1995. It explores how those who aim for control over us manipulate our past. "On the Desperate Edge of Now" investigates the way the national memory was altered between the Nuremberg Trials and the onset of the Cold War. In "You Have Used Me as a Fish Long Enough," Curtis finds the attempt to doctor individual memory with drugs was abandoned in favor of rewriting history. "The Attic" tells how Maggie Thatcher used public relations to try and cast herself in the role of a new Winston Churchill. See also the longer description on Wikipedia.
