The Wire Documentary

I can't find anything about this on the web, but I'll ask around here if anyone knows anything...From Charlie Booker's Guardian blog: [emphasis mine]
Cease wailing, rain-lashed scumsacks, and gasp at my jet-set lifestyle. I've just returned from a bracing whistle-stop tour of Baltimore - or, more specifically, the most impoverished, crime-blighted corners of Baltimore - where we were shooting a documentary about the drama serial The Wire (which is largely set on said corners).

To a wuss like me, it was an industrial-strength eye-opener: boarded-up windows, needles in the grass, crack vials littering the pavement and open-air drug markets aplenty. A staggering corpse of a neighbourhood, so ravaged and despairing that each time you spot a dead rat (roughly every 10 minutes), you assume it committed suicide.
Whole thing here. Via The Corner.

P.S. By here, I mean Baltimore. But if you happen to know anything about it, let me know.
