>Nobody has said anything in this discussion about documentary. Is that >because documentary cannot by definition be Brechtian, or...? 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 :-).
