In the early 1940s, hundreds of thousands of military personnel unknowingly became human guinea pigs in toxin experiments and biological weapon tests conducted by the U.S. government -- "Truth syrums" tested on civilians, nerve gas sprayed into suburbs, hospital patients injected with plutonium, children exposed to biological chemical agents... the list goes on and on, and in most if not all cases, tests were carried out without the knowledge or consent of those involved...
(English) The Brain -- A Secret History is a series about how various theories and experiments on the human mind over decades have led to profound insights into how the human brain works, but also have involved great cruelty and pose terrible ethical dilemmas. Historical experiments such as severe maternal deprivation, brainwashing and other experiments in mind control such as MKULTRA are covered, along with physical interventions such as the history of electric shock 'treatment', behaviour modification, experimental psychology, and the Milgram experiment.

(English) Ever since February 1997, when genetic scientists first unveiled 'Dolly' the cloned sheep, has genetic engineering pushed towards the desire to clone and genetically modify human beings. Since then, cloned cattle, pigs, goats and mice have been produced amongst other things, fuelling the belief that humans can be next. But what are the problems with this manipulation? Cloning The First Human follows the latest research, which not only shows complications from an ethical position, but much more dangerous ones too...

(English) After many experiments with cloning and genetically manipulation on other species, technology and genetic science is now turning to the frontier of the human. Every parent wants their child to be healthy, but does this extend to picking their genes for them? What about those who are unable to have children naturally for whatever reason, who turn to artificial insemination or genetic modification? Is this designing children? What are the repercussions in a world dominated by genetically modified people? Will we evolve into a new species and transcend our history to one of inclusion and harmony? Or, will we simply end up in a world that is further divided -- by genetic apartheid?

Do we live in a democratic society or something other than this? What does the reality of our social structure mean when consideration is given to the supremacy of property rights over human rights and freedoms? Canadian presenter Russell Porisky analyses this and explains the difference between a 'person' and a natural person, which enables the massive implications of this in a legal context...
(English) The Chicago Conspiracy reviews the legacy of the military dictatorship in Chile by sharing the story of combatant youth who were killed by the Pinochet regime as a backdrop to the history of the military dictatorship and current social conflict. The larger history is wrapped around three shorter pieces, which explore the student movement, the history of neighbourhoods that became centres of armed resistance against the dictatorship, and the story of the indigenous Mapuche...

(English) Enemy Image overviews the history of the portrayal of war in television news from an American perspective. The film starts with the coverage of Vietnam where reports happened with little supervision, control or interference. Following this, The Pentagon takes action to control access by journalists to battle areas in subsequent invasions, such as the Invasion of Grenada -- where journalists were excluded completely -- to the first Gulf War, where news packages were provided directly from the military, to the embedded churnalism of the invasion of Iraq. Shown is the progressive tightening of control by the US military on the contact journalists have with soldiers and civilians in the war zone, in order that "never again will television raise the moral and political questions that face a people during war."
