Scientology Explained. Maybe.

Tom Cruise. Oprah's couch. Something about childbirth and painkillers. John Travolta. Planes, Chins, and Battlefield Earth. Etc... We have all heard about scientology. However, BBC News Panorama's insight into the religion - "Scientology & Me", which aired last night, May 14th - is certainly worth a look. Fascinating television, even if reporter Sweeney's methodologies can sometimes leave a sour taste... The show is broken into three clips below. Pesky youtube format.
EDIT: The second clip below overlaps with the 1st and 3rd clips and is also of poorer quality because the clip originally uploaded is no longer available. Changes were needed.

Part 1 of 3.

Part 2 of 3.

Part 3 of 3.

If however you are lazy, in a hurry, not that interested, or just fancy a quick incredulous giggle, check out the classic South Park clip below. It is the episode that Isaac Hayes threw a bit of a Preston over. Preston? Chantelle? No? Nothing at all? Celebrity Love Jungle, or something. Nope?
