  • For nature documentaries I'd recommend anything with David Attenborough, like Life, Planet Earth, Africa, Frozen Planet.

    For social documentaries on subjects like addiction, criminality etc, I'd recommend documentaries by Louis Theroux. The ones of Reggie Yates are a bit less objective, but they're pretty good too.

  • It depends on what you're in to. I will look up a topic on Youtube and choose what video looks most interesting to me.
    Lately I've been watching music documentaries. There are many uploads of VH1's Behind The Music, VH1 Storytellers, MTV's Rockumentary, etc. Look up your favorite artist and add documentary into the search bar and you may be able to find something.
    Same goes for your favorite celebrities or other notable figures. Look them up and add documentary to the end of your search.
    I'm also interested in history and will look up documentaries from my favorite decades or about historic events I find most interesting.
    In school we watched a lot of interesting documentaries in my psychology, sociology, and anthropology. Baraka (1992) is one we watched that stood out to me... I wish I could remember the names of the others.

    Anyways, I recommend searching something you're interested in on Youtube or online and adding documentary to the end of your search. There's so many documentaries out there, you're bound to find something.

    Hope this helps!

  • Titanic: The Ship That Never Sank? About the conspiracy theory that the Titanic was switched. They go through all the points of the theory and why it is true, then at the end they blow massive holes in each point. It's pretty interesting to watch if you like history or are interested in the Titanic.

    • Yes! It's there thank you!

    • Show All
    • No? It’s basically about a guy who killed lots of people. But they could never prove it. Until one day he drops himself right in it

      It’s a proper documentary and not scary at all. Interesting though

    • Ooh okay, I like murder mysteries.

  • Citizenfour it's about Snowden. Or Morgan Freeman's through the wormhole if you're looking for something about science. Or blue planet
