Popular streaming service Netflix hit the headlines hard in Spring 2022 due to a $50-billion plunge in market value attributed partly to a fall in subscribers and to pulling out of Russia. A radical reassessment of the US company's business model was clearly in the wind as news spread that it's finally ready to allow advertising - having ridden the crest of the ad-blocking and ad-free waves of the past 20 years. Founded in 1997, Netflix has developed into a full-scale production company in its own right, delivering popular entertainment and acquiring a name for its hard-hitting documentaries and docu-series. What do you think of this trailer for its new docu-series 'Our Father'? The series is based on the story of a US fertility doctor, Donald Cline, who clandestinely fathered more than 50 children without consent by substituting his own sperm for that of donors - both known, such as husbands/partners, and anonymous. The effect of the violations, which took place in the 1970s and 1980s, are explored in the Netflix production.
