Effective use of a slideshow

A few days ago I happened across a video put out by the BBC of their soldiers fighting in Afghanistan. In terms of design and arrangement it was most effective in conveying how passionate and honest people in an intense situation are. The writing is vivid as they tell stories of loss, the way local children light up at the sight of a pen, the kind nature of the people and the rough beauty of the land. The images of letters, photographs of “tommies” at rest and, most importantly, the presence of musical accompaniment. In the course of the presentation the music is at once mournful, introspective and full of reproachful meaning.

I would say this is an excellent example of the documentary, as it fully conveys a sense of humanity and thought as to the common thread people have called life.
