Eurotika: a European Exploitation Film Series

Leave it to UK's Channel Four to keep providing quality documentaries. This dates back to 1999, but I'm just discovering it now. Here's the playlist of the whole 12 episodes, starting with the films of established auteurs like Jean Rollin and Jess Franco, then moving on to more obscure genres from France, Spain and elsewhere. Of particular interest to me is the third installment (Italian Horror of the 60's-70's) and episode 12 (a profile of the tremendously talented and intelligent Michael Reeves, who made his final film, Witchfinder General, at the age of 25 before his death).

On a related note, a well made documentary about Video Nasties is on Youtube, but I encourage you to purchase the three-DVD set, which contains a wealth of additional entertainment and enlightenment.
