Inside the Dark Web (2014)

Twenty-five years after the world wide web was created, it is now caught in the greatest controversy of its existence: surveillance.

With many concerned that governments and corporations can monitor our every move, Horizon meets the hackers and scientists whose technology is fighting back. It is a controversial technology, and some law enforcement officers believe it is leading to ‘risk-free crime’ on the ‘dark web’ – a place where almost anything can be bought, from guns and drugs to credit card details.

Featuring interviews with the inventor of the world wide web, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, and the co-founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, Horizon delves inside the ‘dark web’.

The Men Who Made Us Thin (2013)

Jacques Peretti investigates the connections between obesity and weight loss, confronting some of the men making a fortune from our desire to become thin

Episode 1

As obesity escalates, the diet business is booming. In this four-part series, Jacques Peretti investigates the connections between obesity and weight loss, and confronts some of the men making a fortune from our desire to become thin.

Jacques examines the scientific reasons why so many diets fail long term and why – in spite of this failure – we go back to them again and again. He also speaks to a former director of Weight Watchers and meets other industry leaders, including Slimfast billionaire Danny Abrahams and Pierre Dukan, of the Dukan diet.

Episode 2

In the second of this four-part series, Jacques Peretti charts the story of the fitness industry and examines the links between exercise and weight loss. He speaks to the former Global Head of Health at PepsiCo and asks why the food industry puts so much money into promoting exercise.

Peretti also examines some of the pharmaceutical solutions available for weight-loss as he tells the story of the race to find a safe and effective pill to make us thin.

Episode 3

Jacques Peretti continues his examination of the weight-loss industry and discovers how the World Health Organisation’s recognition of obesity as an epidemic provided millions of new customers for the industry. He also explores some of the latest developments in bariatric surgery and asks how far these trends will go.

Episode 4

In the final instalment of this four-part series, Jacques Peretti asks why the world’s population continues to get fatter, despite the fact that billions are spent on weight loss every year. He travels to America to investigate the parallels between food companies and the tobacco industry and meets the activists battling to introduce laws to tax fatty and sugary foods – and facing fierce resistance from industry.

Speed – Auf der Suche nach der verlorenen Zeit (2012)

Wer oder was treibt die Beschleunigung der modernen Zeit eigentlich an? Ist sie ein gesellschaftliches Phänomen oder liegt alles vielleicht doch nur an unserem mangelhaften Zeitmanagement? In seinem Dokumentarfilm begibt sich der Filmemacher und Autor Florian Opitz auf die Suche nach der verlorenen Zeit. Wo ist sie nur geblieben, die Zeit, die wir mühsam mit all den neuen Technologien und Effizienzmodellen eingespart haben?

Opitz begegnet auf seiner Suche Menschen, die die Beschleunigung vorantreiben, und solchen, die sich trauen, Alternativen zur allgegenwärtigen Rastlosigkeit zu leben. Er befragt Zeitmanagement-Experten, Therapeuten und Wissenschaftler über die Ursachen und Auswirkungen der chronischen Zeitnot. Er trifft Unternehmensberater und Akteure, die auf dem internationalen Finanzmarkt aktiv sind und an der Zeitschraube drehen. Und er lernt Menschen kennen, die aus ihrem ganz privaten Hamsterrad ausgestiegen sind und nach gesellschaftlichen Alternativen suchen. Auf seiner Suche entdeckt er: Ein anderes Tempo ist möglich, wir müssen es nur wollen.

The Internet’s Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz (2014)

The film follows the story of programming prodigy and information activist Aaron Swartz. From Swartz’s help in the development of the basic internet protocol RSS to his co-founding of Reddit, his fingerprints are all over the internet. But it was Swartz’s groundbreaking work in social justice and political organizing combined with his aggressive approach to information access that ensnared him in a two-year legal nightmare. It was a battle that ended with the taking of his own life at the age of 26. Aaron’s story touched a nerve with people far beyond the online communities in which he was a celebrity. This film is a personal story about what we lose when we are tone deaf about technology and its relationship to our civil liberties.

Svet stav (2014)

Športne stave so dobičkonosen posel s katerim se ukvarjajo milijoni. Ilegalne in zasebne spletne stavnice so povzročile revolucijo v prirejanju stav in pritegnile stavce iz vsega sveta. Veliki zaslužki so premamili tudi kriminalne organizacije – stavne sindikate, ki služijo s prirejanjem izidov in stavnih trgov ter postajajo največje zlo modernega športa. Vedno več je primerov, športov in držav, kjer so preiskave že prinesle obsodbe, tudi v Sloveniji smo obravnavali nedovoljeno prirejanje stav in prirejanje izidov zaradi zaslužkov na stavnicah.
