Thanks Russell for the heads up on two new TV scripts up on The BBC Writer’s Room. There are the first episodes of House of Saddam (which is about what you think it is about) and the supernatural series Being Human which Russell tells me has been renewed for a second season.

Thanks to Trevor for the heads up on the “Raiders Story Conference Transcript” (7MB in PDF format). This 125 page transcript documents the five day story conference in 1978 between Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and Lawrence Kasdan for a little film called Raiders of the Lost Ark.
If you don’t want to download the transcript (it is hosted on a “sendspace” site), I’d highly recommend Mystery Man’s blog post where he has a number of excerpts from the transcript and commentary on the discussion from which he gleens 10 Screenwriting Lessons. – Don

Pugumentary is a documentary about Thomas Sloan, a life-long NYC resident who died on June 5, 2005 of a heart attack, leaving behind no family except for 22 pugs.
In this documentary, we try to learn who Mr. Sloan was through interviews with his neighbors and friends, and follow the fate of his ‘children,’ from their unfortunate situation to their new, and happy homes.
Mary Rose is a ghost who returns to the house in Sussex where she grew up where she is confronted by her own son, just 2 years old when she vanished, now a 41 year old man. But because he has grown up and she has not, there is no possibility of reunion, only of release back to the spirit world she has inhabited.
