    Lol...havent seen that one, thanks for the heads up, I actually watched Milla on Jeanne D.arc yesterday....she´s indeed very fotogenic.

    Seems thou that many people here seem to mention what I also considered the nr one..the moonlanding.

    Wtc, hiroshima, holocaust are horrifying and I guess we by nature tend to value what we as a human race can acheive in It´s prime time.

    The assasin of J.F Kennedy is also one of those historical documents that are burnt in to my mind.

    We are nearing a time when manufactured processing power starts to outstrip organic processing power kilo for kilo. I want to know we are doing more with it than playing Angry Birds or Fruit Slice and a project to lift man off the planet seems like a good use. There will always be wars and people starving to death because of man's cupidity.

    In terms of importance, I would think that some of the really early stuff produced by the Edison company and others of that time that laid the groundwork for the film and (eventually) video industry.

    Some undeveloped home movie hidden in an attic probably contains the most astounding images ever recorded.

    You mean the one where NASA erased some of the footage? Because "tapes are expensive and we need to re-use them."

    Really? So much for "rocket science."

    Had to be a money guy and not a science guy. Breathtaking lack of vision, there.

    Not sure what is the most powerful historic video, history just sends a powerful message in general. But I do have some Tarawa war footage on film from my great grandfather.
    All that is powerful or long standing is first conceived in the imagination; supported by the hope of possibility and then made manifest in our commitment of our current physical reality.
