Feature-length documentary for Channel 4 and for cinema release. This film has played at festivals around the world and has been broadcast on TV stations from New Zealand to Finland.
You can watch the film for free here.
David Bond lives in one of the most intrusive surveillance states in the world. He decides to find out how much private companies and the government know about him by putting himself under surveillance and attempting to disappear a decision that changes his life forever. Leaving his pregnant wife and young child behind, he is tracked across the database state on a chilling journey that forces him to contemplate the meaning of privacy and the loss of it.
These three films are samples of the Erasing David DVD extras:
Top human rights lawyer Helena Kennedy speaks about surveillance Britain.
Oxford Professor of European Studies speaks about the rise of Big Brother Britain.
David Davis speaks about the database state in the UK.
I loved the concept and execution of this film! Right on! This is a supreme struggle for anyone living in this modern world.

A friend of mine informed me about this movie and I would like to know where I can obtain or purchase a copy. The other point I would like to make about surveillance is that perhaps the talk about integration into a european currency is just one of many steps towards a more insidious chip insert on/in the human body (eliminate cash altogether)and use a readout for buying and selling.
(in effect you become the currency and currency is owned by somebody) If you eliminate cash altogether and then all ather types of credit/debit card and if the only way to purchase anything is through a chip insert, then what choice are you going to make. It reminds me of sunday school and the revelation chapter 13 in the old king james Bible where it mentions a chip insert in the head or hand for buying and selling and of course the records of your purchases put you under surveillance and can go a long way towards building up a profile of you — today we have the technology to do this. Could it be that all this surveillance and various other aspects are literally taking us to that scenario. Frightening!

When, in 1992, I said to some friends that the EU would become a police-state they were all laughing… Now slowly the laughter is dying away because they see I was right all along. I studied the workings of the world closely for the past 20 years and have come to the conclusion that this world is no longer about money or power but about survival. When I say humanity is a threat to humanity, everybody agrees. The richest few percent of the world also know this. The only difference between them and us is that they define humanity before the word threat different than after… If 90% of the population would die for some reason, most of humanities problems would be over, right? And remember: these people have way too much money, power, self esteem and time…
