Used newspapers to keep me warm
Then I'd have to score a drink
Calm my nerves, help me to think
Down city streets I would roam
I had no bed, I had no home
And there was nothing that I owned
Used my fingers as a comb
In those days when I was young
Drinking and fighting was no fun
It was daily living for me
I had no choice 
It was meant to be"

SeaWorld to phase out killer whale display in San Diego - 10 November 2015
"The company has faced intense criticism by activists who say keeping the whales in captivity is cruel and unnecessary."

(BBC)

Blackfish "is a 2013 American documentary film directed by Gabriela Cowperthwaite.
It focuses on Tilikum, an orca held by SeaWorld and the controversy over captive killer whales." 

Blackfish - Official Trailer
"Many of us have experienced the excitement and awe of watching 8,000 pound orcas, or "killer whales," soar out of the water and fly
through the air at sea parks, as if in perfect harmony with their trainers. Yet this mighty black and white mammal has many sides
-- a majestic, friendly giant, seemingly eager to take trainers for a ride around the pool, yet shockingly -- and unpredictably
-- able to turn on them at a moment's notice. BLACKFISH unravels the complexities of this dichotomy, employing the story
of notorious performing whale Tilikum, who -- unlike any orca in the wild -- has taken the lives of several people while in captivity.
So what went wrong?
Shocking footage and riveting interviews with trainers and experts manifest the orca's extraordinary nature, the species' cruel treatment
in captivity over the last four decades and the growing disillusionment of workers who were misled and endangered by the highly profitable sea-park industry. This emotionally wrenching, tautly structured story challenges us to consider our relationship to nature and reveals how little
we humans truly know about these highly intelligent, and surprisingly sentient, fellow mammals that we only think we can control.
When you look into their eyes, somebody's home. Somebody's looking back at you. . . but it may not be what you think."

CINEMA

The Gamechangers "is a British docudrama produced by the BBC.
The programme depicts the story of the controversy caused by Grand Theft Auto, a video game series by Rockstar Games, as various attempts were made to halt the production of the games. Directed by Owen Harris and written by James Wood, the film centres on the legal feud between Rockstar Games president Sam Houser (Daniel Radcliffe) and controversial attorney Jack Thompson (Bill Paxton) over Rockstar's popular video game series Grand Theft Auto, and the debate regarding the psychological effects of violent video games.[1]"

(Wikipedia)

The Gamechangers, BBC Two, review: 'Radcliffe is excellent' (2015)
"Daniel Radcliffe portrays game developer Sam Houser as a flawed visionary in this BBC drama, says Benji Wilson...
“I want to create a completely real world for grown ups so that people talk about video games the way they talk about films and music.”
That was the mission statement of Sam Houser, a British game designer played by Daniel Radcliffe, in The Gamechangers,
a feature length drama about the making of the bestselling videogame Grand Theft Auto...
Both Radcliffe and Paxton were excellent, with Radcliffe particularly beguiling as a young man both brittle and brilliant.
It dealt with the moral issues with a balance and assuredness born of hindsight – the fact is that a decade on,
the world hasn’t gone to hell in a handcart and video games haven’t led to a total moral meltdown. "
