The origins of ISIS
at 12:57 23 May 2017

For anyone interested and who didn't see it, I recommend looking for last week's Channel 4 documentary.

http://www.channel4.com/info/press/news/historian-holland-to-examine-origins-of-

It focuses on the ideology behind the organisation, not so much on it's origins and the bit on radicalising young (mainly) men in the West was almost an afterthought. Still very good.

More Friday randomness but this is interesting, some good analysis and use of charts.

I have no idea what any of the 2010s songs are and not many of the 2000s ones.

Anyone else watching Luton - Blackpool?
at 20:35 18 May 2017

Stick Sky Sports 2 on for the second half, it's a proper play-off game with every chance of being a classic.

It's currently 4-4 on aggregate, Blackpool lead 3-2 from the first leg and scored first tonight; Luton just scored two quick goals having looked out of it a few minutes earlier.
