On another topic (Paul Robeson, I believe) we _did_ mention
the Frontier Film group of the late 1930s/early 1940s. They
produced a number of documentaries that are definitely inte-
esting for their uplink to Brecht. Related to Frontier Films
is their immediate predecessor group, Nykino, and the various
Workers' Film & Photo League groups that thrived in particular
in Chicago and New York during the Depression. I could dig up
some source references if there's interest.
All this is about as far from TV as it could get, but you asked
for it :-).
