But here's a clue: Google uses the term "governmental request" three times on their terms-of-use page for Gmail and once on their privacy page. Google's language means that all Gmail account holders have consented to allow Google to show any and all email in their Gmail accounts to any official from any government whatsoever, even when the request is informal or extralegal, at Google's sole discretion.

BBC - BBC Four Listings - Originals: Gil Scott-Heron The Revolution Will Not Be Televised
Fri 11 Jun, 21:00-22:00 60mins
Gil Scott-Heron is one of the most influential poets and musicians of the 70s and 80s. Widely regarded as the founding father of hip-hop and the godfather of rap, he combined soul, funk and poetry to send an emphatic political message addressing issues ranging from apartheid to urban poverty.
In this extraordinary documentary from filmmaker Don Letts, Scott-Heron tells his own story for the first time, from his childhood, where he was one of the first black children to attend an integrated Southern school, to his emergence as one of the leading political artists of his era. The film also shows Scott-Heron in performance, and reciting poetry on the streets of Harlem.

"I think it's the most exciting landscape in Britain," said author Iain Sinclair, looking fondly at his photograph of an iconic object, discovered on a three day pilgrimage.
The photograph - and a twin image from his walking companion, the film-maker Chris Petit - shows a massive iron safe dumped in a ditch, one side gaping from the explosives which cracked it open as neatly as an Easter egg.
