    Best Documentaries

    I have resolved to watch more documentaries during lockdown, so I'm looking for some recommendations.

    Watched the Console Wars (Nintendo v Sega) and Apollo 11 on Sky Documentaries over the last couple of days.

    I know you are into your games so The King of Kong and from Bedrooms to Billions are both a good watch

    Also NoClip on YouTube is a great series of documentaries on the making of lots of different games

    Iíd second that .. No interest in NBA, but one of my most favourite sports documentaries of all time


    If you like adventure racing ..the ďeco-challenge- worlds toughest raceĒ on Amazon prime is fun and gripping to watch ..following international competitors go through what can only be described as incredible challenges and endurance

    Nice one, thanks - I knew about King of Kong but had completely forgotten about it, so that's a welcome reminder!

    The World at War narrated by Laurence Olivier is an absolute classic documentary. If you haven't seen it it's well worth a few hours of your time.

    Fahrenheit 11/9 is worth a watch just for the sheer 'how the **** did they get away with that' element.

    If you like sporting documentaries then Free Solo, The Barkley Marathons:The Race That Eats it's Young, Icarus, Senna, Pumping Iron and Freedom's Fury all spring to mind as worth a watch.

    OJ: Made in America is pretty amazing - think itís about 10 hours worth.

    The Defiant Ones on Netflix about Dr Dre also very good IMO.

    Thereís also a film about Rockfield (the music studio) which is great if youíre into 90s music. Contributions from LG, Tim Burgess etc.

    Dear Zachary. Quite astonishing doc, but truly heartbreaking - can't say more. Maybe one for the brighter nights.

    Project Nim - couple raise a chimp. Really weird folk in this world.

    King of Kong - as mentioned above.

    Black fish - a dive into SeaWorld and the treatment of orcas.

    ē Hitsville: The Making Of Mowtown - best documentary Iíve seen on Mowtown by a distance (Sky Arts)
    ē Rock N Roll Island: Where Legends Were Born - a small island in London that was the place to be where all the big 60s bands played before they were big (BBC IPlayer)
    ē World War 2 In Colour - Netflix
    ē Jim & Andy - Jim Carey method acting and staying in character playing the eccentric Andy Kauffman in Man On The Moon (Netflix)
    ē Room 237 - documentary on The Shining looking at all Kubrickís Easter eggs and theories like how itís an admission he faked the moon landings etc. Iím no conspiracy theorist but quite enjoy the more plausible theories people can make without necessarily believing them.

    Matty, if you haven't done so already, I'd recommend you check out the bbc iplayer, also ITV and ch4 iplayers too.
    They all have whole sections full of documentaries, and if like me you're up during the night, they're perfect for watching then as they usually have subtitles available.

    "Lance" on the BBC is a great watch.

    I'm not into cycling but found the whole thing absolutely fascinating, so good to hear so much from the horse's mouth too.

    I watched a good one last night. Treeline - The Secrrt Life of Trees. I think it was put together by the climbing brand Patagonia.

    Some great scenery and music. Good for sticking on for an hour to chill out

    I know Neil Oliver is not everybody's cup of tea but this four parter is outstanding, in my opinion.

    I'm a scholar of Scottish history and even so, I learned some startling facts from this documentary series. Rob Roy McGregor - who'd have thunk it

    Watched this mini series with Sarah Pascoe and found it quite entertaining. Lighthearted viewing.

    She also did Travelling Blind with Amar Latif which I really enjoyed.

    I take it she was watching it with you and doesn't actually appear in it, she's grim. Don't know if Russell Howard has a sister but, if he does I'd imagine her to be like Sarah Pascoe.
