The Metamorphosis of George Orwell and the Message of 1984

Jan 28, 2021


This is a BBC documentary on the life of George Orwell, author of two of the most acclaimed satires ever written, Animal Farm and 1984. Equally significant, but far less known, is the author’s dramatic journey through life and the extremes of his experiences. Put all this together with the highest skills of film making, and you have one of the most compelling and poignant documentaries you will ever see. There are many versions of this program on the Internet, but most of them have been brutally edited to reduce the length and/or to remove portions that reveal Orwell’s eventual disillusionment with and opposition to Communism. This is the unedited version.  Broadcast in 2003. Source: Albion Noise

    Some of you videos are excellent.
    I used to be able to download YT videos.
    How does one download from your website?

    Thank you,

      You will need a third-party video down-loader app. Our files are hosted at Not all down loaders will extract from that site but I am pretty sure Allavsoft will do the job. If not, keep trying different apps until you find one that works.

      You can do it a more easy way if you have firefox as your browser.
      1. Right click anywhere on a blank spot on the page the video is and select : View Page Info.
      2. Go to the tab that says Media (Second one)
      3. Scroll down till you see Video (right where the subject is type)
      4. Click on it, and you will be able to download it.

      If you use a Chromium based browser (Chrome, Brave, Vivaldi, Epic, etc.) there are 3 dots in the lower right corner of the video. Click that and choose Download.

    1984 was not a prediction. Orwell knew it was already a well set out plan.

    Excellent BBC documentary but, controlled by the Rothschilds, they of course kept from the public the closely guarded secret that it was their English and American bankers that were, as George Knupffer so astutely observed, “clubbing the world over the head with communism.” It doesn’t appear that when Orwell returned from Spain he had realized it yet, but given what he said on his death bed he must have considered it possible by then. Maybe he knew it, but couldn’t say it and get published, This is the problem that Doug Reed had until his monumental work “The Controversy of Zion” was published posthumously by a little-known press in another country. The question I am left with is “Did Orwell ever write, however obscurely, any suspicion that the small group of Jewish financiers were behind communism” just as they are today with their “end game” that they are imposing on mankind with their manufactured coronavirus crisis?

    I love how much George Orwell’s story resonates with our present, I had never heard his story even though I have heard of him many times. He seems to have been driven to fight communism & slavery due to his sense of justice and his unique mindframe. In our current time we are much more vulnerable since our methods of communication are controlled by the enemy who has integrated into many important parts of society and power. … No wonder people call them demons, they mine the ground and use the mined areas to create underground cities for them to hold up to set siege to the country from the inside, while hidden from the public. Resident Evil and the Fallout game seem to sum this up, this is the worst case scenario for all sides.
