Cuba and the Cameraman (Netflix)
This captivating Netflix original documentary from director Jon Alpert who for the past 42 years has been following Fidel Castro and three Cuban families affected by his policies gives the viewer a  a candid and revealing never-before-seen portrait of Cuba. Compelling viewing.

On Telly

Scent of a Woman(RTE 2 Saturday 2nd December 00:35)
Al Pacino's larger than life performance persuaded the Academy to finally grant the actor his first (and long overdue) Oscar. A fine production in it's own right but it's the work of Pacino that stands head and shoulders above it all. Magnificent!
