    Documentary recomendations

    Documentaries are my jam. I've mainly stuck with music and actors, their background and story, etc. Would lke to branch out. Currently watching Princess Diana and Fergie Docs.

    Anyone have any suggestions?
    I probably posted that in an ambien trance-soryy

    I recently watched the Netflix doc on Arron Hernandez. I think there is a documentary channel now too. Also, I've found PBS's Frontline to be informative.

    That is the documentary form in total perfection, by the best commentator I can remember from watching 200 continuous years of broadcasting, and the clip is less than ten minutes.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    England's troubles will increase until the bishops open Joanna Southcott's box.
    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    You can have our royal family (although harry has gone up in my estimation ) in fact after the tories have sold off the NHS they mught just trade them as well.

    How about the history of your own state? It looks fascinating and depressing at the same time.

    If you like Documentaries, Check out Curiosity Stream https://curiositystream.com/
    They have all sorts of very interesting programs. The cost is very reasonable.

    Worth every penny, I think

    Al Jazeera has broadcast some wonderful documentaries this year, the standard is high and their topics interesting. You might give the channel a go for the occasional hour and see if it fits your interest.

    https://www.aljazeera.com/programmes/specialseries/

    Particularly, to get you started, "In Search of India's Soul: From Mughals to Modi" and "Surviving the 'swallow,' DR Congo's train of death".

    "In Search of India's Soul: From Mughals to Modi" seems to no longer be available.
    I was watching last month, but did not finish it.

    Oops. Nevermind. They have just moved it.

    I thought the nationalist chap with the pistol on his desk and the bee in his bonnet was particularly scary.

    The Australian Dream. It shows the culture of modern Australia. Seen through the eyes of a decent man....and yes England has to get rid of the term Terra nulius from our history books . It's wrong and has caused a mountain of problems. Hopefully one day it will be Prince Williams legacy....maybe his dad but nobody is holding their breath.

    Australia the story of Us, is another . https://documentaryaustralia.com.au/projects/
