Jiro Dreams of Sushi was artistically exquisite. A theme of inspiring life-long dedication.

I also recommend Forks Over Knives!

- The Corporation (2003) is one of my favourite docs of all time! This 26 award-winning documentary examines the nature, evolution, impacts and future of the modern business corporation and the increasing role it plays in society and our everyday lives.
- Born Rich (2003) - A documentary on children of the insanely rich. Directed by one of their own, Johnson & Johnson heir, Jamie Johnson
- BBC documentaries are class. Check out Panorama series for exposés, current affairs ect (check out their scientology episodes! Mind blowing stuff). If science is more your thing, check out the Horizon series. They did a great one recently on the missing Malaysia air flight.
- Very entertaining, Penn and Teller's Bullshit has something for the cynic in all of us. I love their exposés on alternative medicine, creationism ect ect

Everything I listed is available on youtube :HK:

Jiro Dreams of Sushi

Grizzly man

Alone in the wilderness (this one has got to be the most interesting and relaxing one I've ever watched.)

I like ones about children/students/teenagers/mental illness I'm not sure if that's weird or not, my favourites are:

I'm a Child anorexic-about an inpatient anorexia clinic called Rhodes Farm that takes in young girls (and occasionally boys) with extreme anorexia
I'm a boy anorexic- same as above but focusing on 3 boys as they recover at Rhodes Farm
Child Of Rage-bit tense/sad/scary but has a happy ending and Beth's doing amazingly now
Harrow: a very British school-it's kind of a documentary, it's a few episodes long and it follows a few boys during their life at Harrow
and basically anything by Louis Threoux but especially America's most medicated kids and A place for pedophiles, unfortunately I can no longer watch them on youtube as they're unavailable in my country now

There's probably loads I haven't thought of yet too

Zealous Lace wrote:If you're into medical documentaries one of the best to watch is called Anatomy for Beginners. The series is conducted by Dr Gunther von Hagens and Professor John A. Lee where they explain the main systems in the body (circulation, movement, digestion, and reproduction) through diagrams, human models, and -the most controversial aspect- live autopsies.
Here's a link to full episodes from Channel 4's YT:

If you can handle the medical gore, the series is brilliant, unique, and very informative. There are also 2 more in the same (mind the pun) vein where Dr Gunther explores illness, and emergency medicine.


I remember watching them when it was on TV here! Tonights tv is sorted now! ;D
