Interesting. So Lord Hall thought he could just fob them off by mentioning an informal conversation, glad to see they are not standing for it.

I would actually say that there should be a second, follow up documentary that presented a viewpoint closer to the truth and away from the biomedical perspective.

Why exactly is there always such a general focus on the biomedical & denial of everything else/all the alternatives? i can understand where some of it has come from & why it's all like it is - But there is also something really fucking weird about it all.

Laing said the truly insane were the masses/the normals, this insane society/culture with all it's inhumanity, wars, environmental destruction & everything else that's seen as normal - that schizophrenics were the super sane - i can see where he was coming from at times.
