A new documentary from the makers of Relentless has just been named Best Feature at the Liberty Film Festival. The new film is called Obsession. Using the same "in their own words" approach as Relentless, but applying it to the global terrorist phenomenon, it uses footage from Arab television - footage rarely seen in the West, and ignored by the mainstream media - to illustrate how terrorism is systematically advocated, propagandised, and glorified, by the radical minority that is trying to hijack Islam and use it against the West. I'm sure that the BBC, in the interests of balancing The Power of Nightmares, is in the queue to obtain the rights. I mean, that's what balance means, doesn't it?
