Total Isolation
This Horizon is similar to the one I discuss in the article immediately below. Total Isolation was broadcast in January. It’s a slight improvement on the last one, but not by great factor. It goes into the plight of the prisoners of Guantanamo Bay, but as far as I’m concerned that’s just the tip of the iceberg and the programme once again shies away from exploring the full implications of the story. Why does the man running the test have to have his face blanked out!? “For security reasons”? Who’s he really working for? This vid was as morally ambiguous as Human vs 2.0. This is a reproduction of some of the experiments done during MK ULTRA. Look what happens to the subjects after they’ve been in sensory deprivation for 48 hours: reduced mental functions and increased suggestibility! Good citizens of the New World Order! It won’t be a problem convincing them that Oceania has always been at war with Eastasia! But Horizon predictably fails to grasp the sinister possibilities that this research promises to those with an interest in suppressing independent creative human thought.
(Please scroll down because I've published another new article on HPANWO today.)

Was it really necessary to set this programme in a Cold War nuclear bunker? It struck me last night that this is just a case of tacky BBC theatrics!
