“The Lobotomist” Now Online

Long ago and far away (January 16, to be precise), I claimed that the PBS documentary on the leading U.S. lobotomist Walter Freeman would be made freely available online immediately after its television premier on January 21. This was based on information published on the PBS website. Come January 22, no online version of the video appeared.

Now, however, at long last, PBS has posted the documentary. Unfortunately, it is cut into tiny pieces, each between 2 and 7 minutes in length. Nevertheless, you can now see it in its entirety here.
