Wonderful BBC documentary on isolation.

The advantage of a long commute is that, sometimes, you get to listen to some truly inspiring stuff, such as this BBC documentary on isolation.

"Man is a social creature, so how does he cope in situations of isolation - bereft of human contact - or in situations where he or she is confined in the company of just a few individuals for long periods of time? Anahi Aradas explores the effects of isolation and confinement in a tiny community in the Antarctic, speaks to former astronauts in the US and visits a Swedish prison, where inmates are encouraged to practise yoga to help them cope."
