in '97 or so I saw a documentary about the crew that was stranded aboard MIR when the big political change in Russia occurred around 1990. It was titled something like 'Man out of time,' may have been made by a Czech director, and had as its' central thesis the idea that the guy who was stuck up there while the Soviet Union became Russia was a time traveler. What the hell is the exact name of this flick?

Which cameras and sound equipment are suitable?

Let's say I want to film an amateur, feature-length documentary. One can assume I'd use a digital camera for relative cheapness and expediency, but which cameras are good enough to do a professional-looking job? I'd be on a very tight budget. This does not take into account the sound equipment, but perhaps you could also comment on that? [more inside]

my burning desire to see a show about arson

A few years ago, I saw a TV-documentary about a man who was burning down luxury homes somewhere in the American west. The arsonist's best friend (brother?) was instrumental in capturing him. It was on 20/20 or Primetime or some similar show. I was riveted by the story, have never forgotten it, and I'd love to see it again. Which show was it on? Is it available on DVD? Transcript? Based on a book?
