    The political party of Burma's detained democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi has heard that the military regime could set her free in November, a spokesman has said.

    The Nobel peace laureate has been kept in detention for 14 of the past 20 years, and in August she was ordered to spend another 18 months in detention after being convicted over an incident in which a US man swam to her house.

    According to media reports and local residents, Home Affairs Minister Maung Oo told a meeting of local officials in central Burma four days ago that her release would come in November.

    She can come to Australia if she wants, to replace all the economic refugees that think they have been persecuted but want money instead.

    There is to be a documentary shown on a UK tv channel next week about two families of Burmese Karen refugees moving to Sheffield in England. It is on the channel More4 at 10pm Tuesday 2nd February and is called "Moving to Mars."

    I heard an interview on the BBC World Service last night with the director of the film, Mat Whitecross, who also directed Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll.

    Put it on the PVR last night and have watched a lot of it today (it is 1hr 50 mins)-excellent documentary-there is no commentary-the dialogue is provided by the people themselves-and is all the better for it.
    Recommended viewing if you get the opportunity

    It totally slipped my mind last night... I'm sure it will come up again though as most things on satellite tv seem to come around regularly.
