Thanks for the link, but that show exemplifies the worst traits of modern television essays. The helicopter stock shots, the software-based impacts and flashes unmotivated by anything happening on screen, the cliched script with its engineered cliffhangers, the C&A catalogue model presenter, the intrusive, urgent music playing the whole time... it's absolutely dreadful, and absolutely perfect if you want an example of the kind of visual and verbal mystification Berger was talking about.
