What. A. Hero.

I'm not an animal enthusiast or anything, but for the entire duration of an Attenborough documentary I am.

I can only emphasize what everyone else has said! Blue Planet is my favourite though. :yep:

If you're interested in Literature (or study it like me), there's been a pretty interesting series running on BBC 2, 'Faulks on Fiction'.

I prefer the pretty fish though.

Louis Theroux and the Nazis :teeth:
Louis Theroux has to be one of the most boring journalists I've seen. It still puzzles me why he gets shows. He pulls that weird face where you don't know what he's thinking. Although I still watch the shows >.<

Some of his features have been poor but a lot of his stuff is very good. I'm not a massive fanboy so don't know his stuff inside out but I enjoy watching him. No denying that this is incredible:

The Universe on Discovery channel.

i don't think the BBC has ever made a series of documentaries on the universe, which is a shame.

From a TV series he used to do called Weird Weekends. That's where a lot of his best stuff is tbh.

An Inconvenient Truth= amazing.
Helvetica - I loved this because i'm into graphic design but it could still be interesting for people. Its basically a documentary about the controversial history of this font.
