PR49: Black Mirror: Series 2, Episode 2 'White Bear'

The quality of writing and storyline means we don’t want to turn away from Black Mirror, but that it somehow seems to get more disturbing as we go along….

Charlie Brooker and his team have done it again with series two, episode two ‘White Bear’.

A disorientated woman wakes in an unfamiliar house, and the program moves along swiftly from there.

We’ve been told by many of you that you’re able to watch Black Mirror along with us, and we hope that’s the case. If it is, join in the post podcast conversation by leaving your thoughts in the comments section on the website.

To say it has made an impact on us is an understatement. Tune in and find out how.

Melissa George: Retrospective

She has stared in "Alias", "In Treatment", "30 Days of Night", "The Good Wife", "Mulholland Drive", "The Slap", "Triangle", "Grey's Anatomy", "Hunted" and many more besides.

An impressive resume to be sure, but it's fair to say that there is a lot more to this very versatile and talented actress than you perhaps realise. 

Born in 1976 in Perth, Australia, at an early age she showed a passion and flair for Artistic Rollerskating. A passion that saw her win medals at national level and eventually silver at the 1991 world championships.  Years later, George would also appear as herself in the 2013 documentary “Rollerboy".

Limitless: You, But Better

What if you could access your brains full potential, rather than just the 10 or so percent we use now?

The 10% thing is of course a myth, so I'll rephrase the question, what if you could be the best that you possibly could be?
