It's a 26 episode documentary, each episode was 50 minutes long. The bulk of the documentary was shown in 1974. Only 9 of the 26 episodes were aired in 1973, leaving 17 to be aired in 1974. It should be treated as being 1974.

Hmm, tricky. TV series (or episodes thereof) aren't eligible for the Filmspots. Not sure if there's a workable loophole here.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Edvard Munch  [eligibility to be determined]

Time to determine this. Thoughts?

Straddles the line, but I'd say more biopic than documentary.

Just realized Primate is from 1974, so I'll nominate it.

I'm OK with that.  It and Cartesius are best categorized as "docudramas" I think.

 :D I couldn't be happier!

1) That's Entertainment! might have a chance.

2) I really hope that many people will take the opportunity to watch The Great Ecstasy of Woodcarver Steiner.

I was coming here to give my support to Hearts and Minds, and then I read this. Now I'll feel guilty if I don't listen to Sandy.
