Not everyday I see my Mums home town mentioned… anywhere.

Wonderful country up around Lac St Jean. And if you’re lucky enough to make the drive in the fall, wow, the colours are incredible.

I lived in Mistassini and used to show this video to my students!

Anyone know any other good Native American (sorry if that’s not the appropriate naming, I’m from the UK and insure) documentaries? My wife is really interested in learning about the society/culture/traditions? We will give this one a watch but wondered if there were any other good ones to check out?

Paulizod

I’ve watched this one before. I love it!

That’s funny, I’m from SK and we have a fair amount of Cree people here; we also have a place called Mistisunne.

I am pro life. As in, I do not condone abortion so I will not have an abortion. But I don’t believe taking away safe procedures for women is an option. Before people spout off pro life banter, they better be supporting any and all changes that need to be made to help the poor. If education, wages, and healthcare are taken care of, there is a better chance that people will be thriving enough to take care of children. Or at the very least that they will have access to contraceptives so they don’t have to go through something this horrible. If you’re an advocate for the unborn, you MUST be an advocate for the already born!

-KATOMBOMB-

As a Canadian, it is so heartbreaking to me that these women have to cry and beg for abortion funds from friends and family. An abortion is a traumatic enough decision without adding worries like this into it. 🙁 Mad respect for the ladies who have to take these calls and try to help every day.

As a redditor, some of these comments are really gross, just saying. I don’t know how people don’t understand that offering safe and affordable abortions, education and contraceptives to women actually benefits them and society as a whole.

1 hour of unseen D-DAY Normandy landings raw footage of troop movements, invasion fleet and landings – digitally enhanced (2021) [00:55:36]

I see a lot of salvage equipment, floating dry docks and the like. Presumably most of that footage is from the days after the initial landings, but very interesting. I hadn’t considered how they would be working to salvage grounded vessels and sunken vehicles so soon after D-day, but it makes sense.

BoredCop

I had a great uncle that made three landings on Omaha Beach on D-Day. I wish I would have met him sooner, we didn’t know about each other until his last six months alive.

What percentage of those guys survived the day?

How do we know this is unseen? Whered u find the film?

I was working on a college campus very close to these shootings. An administrative assistant was listening to the news on the radio and let out a blood curdling scream.

It was thought he may try to hide on our campus. Of course, he didn’t, he was casually driving out of the area.

NotDinahShore

Wtf are these cringe comments.

cobi_van

shame on christianity as usual

Rais93

Wow, I remember when this was happening! I was turning 19 that year and was struggling to figure out where I stood on abortion. Then this happened so close to home and I was pro choice from this moment. No one should have to fear death going to the doctor and you can’t preach about loving life when you kill people.
I will save this to watch later though because my kids are within listening distance and always hear what I don’t want them too lol

kikiscritters

>Salvi was found dead in his prison cell at MCI Cedar Junction in Walpole, Massachusetts with a garbage bag over his head tied around his neck on November 29, 1996. Salvi was found under his bed with his hands and feet tied up. The official report states that Salvi’s death was a suicide.

Its nice when trash takes itself out.

Princess Alice: The Royals’ Greatest Secret (2021) – Prince Philip’s mother, Princess Alice of Battenberg, was born deaf and diagnosed with schizophrenia, but served on the frontline as a military nurse. [00:57:05]

Princess Andrew of Greece and Denmark. She wasn’t much of a mother, due to her illness, but she tried hard to be a good person. I think her flight from Greece during the Rule of the Colonels was done out of an abundance of caution, perhaps so that the junta could not try to use her.

Vreejack

The real Royal family’s greatest secret would probably be the “hiding” of two of Queen Elisabeth II first cousins in a mental asylum (Nerissa and Katherine Bowes-Lyon).

SirFDS

She gave everthing she had to the people of Greece. Owned like one dress when she died

heathers1

Alice was incredible. She overcame her handicap of being deaf and learned to read lips and communicate in several languages. She was heavily involved in both wars, setting up hospitals in Greece, and she is “righteous among the nations” for her incredible choice to house and protect a Jewish family at her own peril. Not to mention she survived the useless, cruel, and bizarre treatment at an institution she was placed in. She took on the robe later in life, though she was never a true nun.

She choose to do so in homage to her aunt Elizabeth Feodorovna, sister to the last tsaritsa, Alexandra. Aunt Ella as she was called, founded her own order despite great opposition in her aristocratic circles. She adored and was deeply inspired by this aunt, who died, broken, though martyred at the bottom of a mine shaft.

Alice was a survivor and she gave that fighting spirit to her son, Phillip. I suggest reading “ Alice” by Hugo Vickers, it’s a fantastic biography about a woman extraordinarily beautiful and extraordinarily brave. A true inspiration.

“Madness in the Mountains” (2021) Seven hikers go in, only one comes out- a teenager with a horrifying tale of her group’s lunacy and eventual death. This is way stranger than the Dyatlov Pass incident and the documentary has actual footage of the victims of the 1993 incident [00:43:32]

Super interesting topic but the voiceover is actually unbearable after a few minutes – something is so off with the pacing of the words.

kundibutt

Dyatlov pass was an avalanche. There’s 0 mystery there.

Deckard57

Mediocre at best research and second or third-hand accounts only. The researcher of this didn’t speak russian nor did see effort to find someone who does. Also it was in 93, the survivor would still in all likelihood be alive and could be interviewed if someone made an actual effort.

All in all, a nice bedtime story told with soothing voice but not a documentary by any other than American standards.

I will always watch a holocaust documentary but only once. It hurts my heart but these people deserve to be remembered.

china right now has several camps with thousands in them. Forced sterilization, organ transplants, brain washing and yes even execution and we are all complicit in not stopping it. You and me aren’t any different then the black and white faces in these old photos

Quite the voice cast:
Zach Braff, Ryan Gosling, Brittany Murphy, Elijah Wood, Kate Hudson.

Never saw this. Thank you for sharing.

I hope that by my listening to these brave kids stories 80 years later, that they will somehow know they are not forgotten. I cannot even fathom what there day to day lives must have been like. I cannot even fathom that this actually happened. These were ALL very brave people. My heart breaks…

This brings back old memories. I’ve seen all these guys live when I was in my ravers days. I would go to either Dallas or New Orleans for the raves. Someone how Disco Donnie was able to get all these huge names in the scene. Man I wish I could go back in time.
