The approach was, essentially, to examine the alienation of life through the subject of the M25, the orbital motorway of the title. Treating it not as a mere utility, or a tedious nuisance, but as an entity in itself, interrspersed with literary allusions past and present, and worth keeping a look out for in case it gets repeated. Time, about 90 mins.
Dissappointing, though, that nobody placed a notice on this site, because it must be generally known as a meeting point for those opposed to the current state of things in general (directly through the roads protests of recent years) .
Another C4 documentary that WILL be repeated (Thursday 3.55 AM) is "Prison Works", the death of Zahid Mubarek. This, you may recall, was the tragic story of the murder of a young minor offender in Feltham, killed just days before his release by his unstable cellmate, who was suffering from race-hate delusions. How did it come to be that they were placed in the same cell ? Unanswered questions, for there will be no public enquiry about this dreadful event. If you missed this documentary before, record it tomorrow.
