The Kiosk’s YouTube of the Week — Eels documentary

This week, we recommended a BBC documentary about Eels frontman Mark Oliver Everett’s attempt to learn more about his father, something of a misunderstood genius who came up with theories that have since proved groundbreaking. The BB4 documentary is to be rebroadcast shortly, but if you can’t wait for that, it’s all on YouTube. Here’s the first part.

The Kiosk’s Youtube of the Week (The Tell-Tale Heart)

On The Kiosk this week, our regular texter Tim came up trumps again with a great Youtube of the week suggestion for us. This is called The Tell-Tale Heart – it’s a short animated film of 1953 based on the short story by Edgar Allan Poe. The clip was apparently the first to be X-rated in Great Britain under the British Board of Film Censors classification system. No idea why they wanted to censor it, but it’s a great piece of work.
