The World About Us

De wereld om ons heen

In the last three millennia, China has been at war for 11 centuries.

The Roman Empire was at war for half of its existence.

Since 1776, the United States has been at war for at least a hundred years.

People have always dreamt of peace.

Why have we so seldom been able to achieve it?

Are Wall Street executives “too big to jail”? In the 2013 documentary, “The Untouchables,” producer and correspondent Martin Smith (“Money, Power, and Wall Street”) investigates why the U.S. Department of Justice failed to act on credible evidence that Wall Street knowingly packaged and sold toxic mortgage loans to investors, loans that brought the U.S. and world economies to the brink of collapse. Through interviews with top prosecutors, government officials and industry whistleblowers, FRONTLINE reports allegations that Wall Street bankers ignored pervasive fraud when buying pools of mortgage loans.

5 How Sergei Magnitsky Uncovered a $230 Million Tax Fraud I Investigators

Back to menu

22 mrt. 2021

Sergei Magnitsky was a tax advisor tasked with investigating an audacious crime of fraud in Russia. What he discovered went all the way to the highest levels of the Kremlin and implicated police and officials in the biggest tax fraud case in Russian history involving $230 million. And the cost of this discovery was his life.

Magnitsky worked for Jamison Firestone and his legal company Firestone Duncan, who advised Bill Browder and his US investment fund Hermitage Capital. In 2008, both companies were raided by interior minister officials who seized the documents and corporate seals.

Soon after, the ownership of Hermitage Capital mysteriously changed into the hands of an organised crime group, and an illegal $230 million dollar tax rebate was issued. Bill and Jamison asked Sergei Magnitsky to find out what was really going on.

When he discovered the scale of corruption and reported it, those he accused had him thrown in jail. After a year of living in horrendous conditions and being denied medical care, Magnitsky was murdered. In the wake of his death, Bill Browder and Jamison Firestone have dedicated their lives to seeking Justice for Sergei and retelling his story

9 Jimmy Savile: A British Horror Story | Official Trailer | Netflix

22 mrt. 2022


Jimmy Savile was one of the United Kingdom’s most beloved TV personalities. Shortly after his death in 2011, an investigation prompted more than 450 horrific allegations of sexual assault and abuse, with victims as young as 5.


The documentary examines, through extensive archive footage, the evil within Jimmy and delves into how he managed to fool an entire nation for four decades.

Jimmy Savile: A British Horror Story | Official Trailer | Netflix


TV star Jimmy Savile charmed a nation with his eccentricity and philanthropy. But sexual abuse allegations expose a shocking unseen side of his persona.

Putting the real life horror story to one side for a moment, that is one of the most powerful, haunting, disturbing, brlliantly edited trailers I’ve seen in a long time.
Georgia Christine
I’ve just watched this. It was so terrifying. The fact he mentioned “my court case is next Thursday” in every interview was chilling.
Blahammad Ali
“You really are missing something. In fact you’re missing everything!” That sent shivers down my spine. He knew he was untouchable. This is what the purest of evil looks like. The devil in his true form
Lucky Starship
The people who come forward about being the victims of sexual abuse as children, are the bravest people on earth.
Asperger’s Corner
His eyes scared the crap out of me when I was a kid. I was shocked but not surprised when I found out what he’d done. People in high places enabled him for decades.
Amirah Masnavi
A perfect depiction of how evil operates in the world. A masterclass in narcissism. Truly disturbing.
This man must have died with the widest smile on his face. He lived one of the most evil of lives and never once was forced to bare the consequences of that life.
Enrique Carrillo
He never acted alone. People target one individual when in reality it’s far deeper and more sinister than anyone can imagine
Ringo Cheeto from Rosemont
The last line of the trailer is chilling, “You are really missing something, in fact you are missing everything”. For Savile it was clearly a game of “catch me if you can!”. With all the clues he left on his path throughout his life, it’s rather shocking that he never got caught. One of the most monumental fails in the history of the BBC.
A Tad Bit A' History
If you ever feel like you as undeserving of anything, or that you are a bad person, just remember, this guy is knighted.
