Nietzsche Documentary: Human, All Too Human.
I found this really good Nietzsche documentary from the BBC called Human, All too Human. It is a fantastic introduction, welding together Nietzsche's life story with his thought. Some of the themes include 'The Death of God', 'Revaluation of Values', 'The Overman' and more broadly speaking his social and political significance. When I was an undergraduate, I wish I had came across this. It would have helped me identify some of the major themes alot quicker than I otherwise did. In saying that, there is is no alternative to the reading! I hope this whets the appetite. This is part one. The rest can be found on you tube very easily.
