American Dream: The Jonestown Massacre

Aired December 4, 2010 on BBC Four
Clip from 'American Dream: One Nation Under God' (episode 3 of 3 of the 'American Dream' documentary series)
(via TreVelocita)


  1. I've always been fascinated by the Jonestown disaster. Saddened, but fascinated. :\

  2. Anyone know where I can watch the entire program?

  3. I'm trying to find the whole american dream program

  4. Oh... One thing I noticed in this clip that's bothering me... He says "300 adults committed suicide..." I disagree. These people were held at gunpoint. Sure, there may have been some, or even many, who were delusional enough to drink the poison willingly... but for the most part I would call this a "mass murder" not suicide.

  5.  <span><span>Anonymouse,</span></span>
    <span><span> I have always felt the same way. We can't be sure about the adults, but we certainly know that the children were murdered.</span></span>

  6. I didn't stand the opportunity of being approved because the financial institution required a big level of collateral that I simply couldn't provide quick loans with the secondary market such good
    shape, primary lenders happen to be eager to assist students with
    no-of-control costs.
