Bafta-winning film-maker Brian Hill unravels the extraordinary story of Mark Kennedy, the undercover police officer who infiltrated groups of environmentalists to inform on their planned protests. He lived as Mark Stone for seven years, becoming a popular figure in the community, sleeping with women and falling in love with one activist, even as he gathered intelligence.

Kennedy paints a picture of two worlds: the mostly well-intentioned world of the activists and the uncaring police he was working for. It’s hard to know which is more shocking: his sexual relationships with “targets” or the scale of resources devoted to thwarting peaceful protest. Either way, it’s an eye-opening film.  More at Radio Times.

The Di­a­mond Em­pire tells the sto­ry of a pow­er­ful car­tel set up to keep di­a­monds rare and cost­ly af­ter they were found in large num­bers in south­ern Africa; a car­tel that one fam­i­ly, the Op­pen­heimers, now have un­der their con­trol. It shows how the di­a­mond in­dus­try sup­plied vi­tal in­dus­tri­al di­a­monds to both sides dur­ing the Sec­ond World War, while at the same time launch­ing the ad­ver­tis­ing cam­paign that made a di­a­mond ring a pre­req­ui­site for ev­ery bride. It shows how di­a­monds con­tin­ue to be used to fund wars through­out Africa and to be cut for mere pennies by chil­dren in In­dia for the US mar­ket.
