    It's about the nWo, how it was created (the single most significant moment in wrestling history), past and current wrestler's thoughts on certain eras and generally how it changed the face of wrestling at the time. It also covers the thought process behind the unthinkable (at the time) turning Hulk Hogan heel (bad guy). Very interesting stuff if you were a fan back in the 90s or if you're just learning of them now and are interested in the history. I don't keep up with WWE really these days but I still enjoy watching the stuff I used to watch as a kid
    I see, I'll have a look at the trailer then probably watch it if I like what I see. Thanks :thumbsup:

    I was quite enthralled by the recent documentary on Scientology, 'Going Clear'; it's almost morbid seeing how such a huge and obvious cult can thrive within our society.
    I never understood Scientology very well so it would be nice to get some more insight.

    I just finished my postgrad degree and am bored when not applying to jobs. Documentaries are my favourite things to watch and I'm not sure where to begin. The last ones that I watched were:

    Hell's Angel by Christopher Hitchens
    A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy
    Reggie Yates' Extreme series
    Loads of good documentaries on 4od
    Also where did you find Reggie Yates' extreme series I've been wanting to watch that!!

    It was on iPlayer but now it seems to be gone

    True, most of the 4od ones are very interesting.

    I usually watch Air crash investigations (sometimes known as Mayday) - I find it really interesting and it is currently up to series 16 so theres always a different investigation every episode.

    I am more into law, politics, religion and culture when it comes to books and documentaries but can watch a documentary on pretty much any topic, as long as it is well executed. But I agree that it's probably not a priority right now
