Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner first crossed paths as actors on the set of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Little did they know that their next roles, in a new science-fiction television series called Star Trek, would shape their lives in ways no one could have anticipated. In 79 television episodes and six feature films, they grew to know each other more than most friends could ever imagine.

Thoroughly enjoyable. The first hour is hard work if you're not familiar with the story of the American television revolution of the 50s and 60s but it's worth sticking with it. Overall it's a beautiful story of one man's life and career as told by a good friend who wanted us all to understand him a little better. I'd recommend this to Trekkies, aspiring actors or people who just love a well-crafted biography. :-)

At the height of the Civil Rights Movement, while much of the nation's attention was given to peaceful protests, boycotts, and figures like Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King, Jr., a young man named Malcolm Little was rising through the ranks to become one of the leaders and public faces of the Nation of Islam. As Malcolm X, he would come to be one of the most controversial figures in 20th century America, hailed as a bold human rights activist by some and reviled as a violent racist by others.

Not a bad overall coverage of Malcolm X's life. Good value for under a fiver.
