    You've got a point there (and I haven't watched German TV for at least 15 years, and certainly not the commercial channel RTL). At the same time, I doubt that RTL is to be considered a mainstream news network. Most people don't take anyone except the public stations serious, and the private stations seem to contribute to that effect by actions like these.

    This is normal. The so called public channels aren t any different. They are just a little better at it.

    The Germans didn't want anyone listening to the BBC. They might find out the truth that way, which the state run propaganda machine obviously didn't provide. Of course many people in the occupied territories listened to it anyway but they did so at considerable risk to their lives and welfare.

    It was a fun thread, and a cool idea, but people couldn t keep pace. Watching one film every two weeks turned out to be beyond people s capabilities.

    Plus the thread's creator, Brady, has been gone for over 3 years by this stage.

    Yes, it was a fun idea hampered by people not being able to keep up the pace. It's what led to the downfall of the interview thread I and others were running over the years - people signed up but were seemingly unavailable when it came their time, so it collapsed.

    When it comes to the former thread, I'm sure we could always give it a shot again and have one of us mods take over the thread to run it. Probably would've been a great idea early last year during the pandemic, when everyone had a lot more free time.

    And as for Brady, I wonder if NTTD's release will be the kick in the rear he needs to return. I spoke with him a couple of months back, he still seemed pretty content with not returning.
