I have heroically viewed the entire thing, and found it a deeply  
depressing experience. One of the bizarre things about it is that it  
is in effect silent, and we never hear the voices of the three  
geniuses. If they are so brilliant why won't the govt let the people  
to hear them impart their wisdom at first hand? I believe KJI's voice  
has only been heard a couple of times, once during the Albright visit  
and once on an official tape, can anyone confirm? But coming back to  
the above paean I noticed that it includes a genuine (insofar as  
anything is genuine in DPRK) KJE (or KJU if you insist) quote, at  
22.04, his very first I think. Could anyone be so kind as to translate  
his words of wisdom? For what it's worth I also spotted Supreme  
People's Assembly head Choe Thae Bok at 33.51, he has visited UK twice.

Best wishes,

Michael Rank
