'Great' British Cinema?

Spotted a few useful items on YouTube
This is a trailer for a TV show on the poor state of the British film industry - does anyone have this by any chance?

As they feature strong language, I won't post links to these, but 'Save the British Film Industry (by Hamish MacDougall)' and 'Brit vs. U.S. Movies - Eddie Izzard' may provide a smile as well as food for thought - ditto 'Eskimo Nell (1975)', a good illustration of the poor state British film reached in the 70s.

Something we may look at time permitting is the popular usage of the British (usually English) villain in Hollywood and US TV productions ... how many examples can you think of? [please add any eg's as a comment]

Your thoughts then?
