Human, All Too Human, BBC Documentary, 1999.

Human, All Too Human is a three-part 1999 BBC documentary television series produced by the BBC. It follows the lives of Friedrich Nietzsche, Martin Heidegger, and Jean-Paul Sartre. The theme of this documentary revolves heavily around the school of philosophical thought known as existentialism, although the term had not been coined at the time of Nietzsche's writing, and Heidegger declaimed the label. The documentary is named after the 1878 book written by Nietzsche, titled Human, All Too Human: A Book for Free Spirits.
