I thought this was interesting and relevant for our research subjects. It covers the beginnings of cognitive science and involvement with the CIA during the Cold War. It discusses the way humans are made up of what we remember and how we perceive our memories, and if scientists could figure out (and they have tried) to control human memories, then they have the power to control their behavior as well. It focuses on the Cold War era and ends with some indirect questions about the future.
The video is made up of 6 parts of 10 minuted each...here is part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JR5N_AmbpOE
