There are 5 main channels on VideoSift: music, comedy, cute, geek and politics. Today, let's take a look at some of the most interesting video clips of the politics channel:

So probably everyone knows that Bill Clinton plays the saxophone, but do you know that Nixon is a piano player? Here's a clip of him playing his own composition (Nixon Piano Concerto #1) in 1963.

Now, something from 1946: a documentary about the atomic bomb test in the Bikini Atoll on July 8, 1946.

The scary sight of the mushroom cloud is strangely contrasted with the upbeat and cheerful background music!

In 2003, US fighter jet mistakenly fired on a UK vehicle on the ground. For years, both US and UK government denied the existence of a cockpit video of this friendly fire tragedy, until it showed up on YouTube and on VideoSift.

"Welcome to North Korea, leave everything you know behind."

BBC This World 2004 documentary about North Korea called "Access to Evil" provides a (frightful) glimpse to the strange and dangerous life in the Hermit Kingdom.

Let's end on a funny note:

In 1990, a Conservative Party member Bill Galbraith sparked a scandal when he called a fellow Tory John Taylor a "bloody n*gger". When reporters showed up on his doorstep, Galbraith decided not to face the cameras but out came his wife, who defended him in a very funny way.

Wow, that North Korean documentary was just astounding!

I just could not believe that North Korean former Prison chief could talk so matter of factly about how he would torture people if he was in a bad mood. And how he would execute people for little reason.
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
