    Its about the cosmos.Its a tad old though.Neil degrasse tyson recently did the rebooted modern version.I find that not a lot of people are that interested in space and astronomy but each to their own I suppose.
    How is the modern version compared to the original?

    Cowspiracy and Earthlings
    I watched Earthlings. It was a good documentary with useful information but like Vegetated, I felt that it was pushing an agenda onto me. I guess that all documentaries do, in one way or another but it's nice when they're more subtle

    I like both.The newer version has more special effects and stuff but the original was like 1980's/1990's so thats to be expected.

    It was on iPlayer but now it seems to be gone

    True, most of the 4od ones are very interesting.
    BBC 2 have made a documentary about British Vogue which I found interesting

    I found Salam Neighbour and Living On One Dollar really interesting. They're by the same people. Definitely worth a watch if you haven't seen them. Last I checked they were both on Netflix UK

    Honestly absolutely anything by Louis Theroux turns out to be some of the best television ever made.

    And on iPlayer at the moment called Obesity: the post-mortem. Obviously don't watch this if you don't fancy watching a post-mortem but it's fascinating.

    Anything by Louis Theroux tends to be really interesting. He's done a scientology one, some prison ones, even ones about neo-nazis. There's a long list of things he's done so you have a lot of choice depending on what peaks your interest.

    Health documentaries are often pretty good too. Louis Theroux it is

    I have watched some Michael Moore documentaries and my former housemate told me about Blackfish. Sounds like something to watch after I delve into the world of Louis Theroux
