Two programmes I watched recently were 'When Bankers Were Good' from the BBC (which focuses in part on Quaker banking) and 'Living with the Amish' from Channel 4. In these troubling social and economic times we live in (I write this thinking, "when have they never not been troubling?"), both were relevant, thought-provoking - and inspirational - documentaries.
The BBC and Channel 4 both have a public-service remit and I think this is when we really see the benefits of that kind of media set-up. I was also pleased to see a positive programme about teenagers - one in which they weren't set up primarily for on-air conflict and scandal (like 'Jamie's Dream School', for example).
