Documentaries
« on: July 14, 2013, 08:56:14 PM »
Watching a show here about Treblinka. Scary stuff.  I've always said fact was stranger than fiction. I love watching a really good documentary series. World at War is amazing. Some of the stuff on PBS is great. The series about the history of baseball was unbelievable. I never miss the documentary hour and the curious ear on Radio 1. Anyone ever hear the one about the two lads who blagged their way to Manhattan on their own from Dublin Airport. But the lads at TG4 excel themselves with all sorts of stuff. Laochra Gael, Fearaibh Fionntra, Bibeanna and Scannal. top class.Any other recommendations lads??

Free online movie: Zeitgeist 2: Addendum

This has been hammered as conspiracy theory stuff, but it was made in 2008. You can view its predictions in hindsight and ask yourself, were they right?

Zeitgiest 1 was ok. The 911 part of it was crap, I thought, but the rest was interesting.

Tabloid by Errol Morris if you want an absolutely bonkers story brilliantly told by one of the great documentary makers of all-time.  Really, watch any Morris film and you're onto a winner.

Just watched 'Pulling John', doc on arm wrestling legend John Brzenk, the Michael Jordan of arm-wrestling. Looks at Brzenk, a middle / heavyweight arm wrestler, unbeaten in years questioning whether he should retire or not and the emergence of two super-heavyweights, one a brash yank, and the other a quiet Russian (2 men mountains, much much bigger than Brzenk)..good show for those who like the old sport documentaries :-)

If any of the videos are on youtube then have a look at jdownloader, handy download manager that scans a page for downloadables and gives you the choice of what to download. Youtube have their videos in mp4 format, so perfect for IOS devices.

The ESPN 30 for 30 series are very good, if you like sports documentaries.
'The two Escobars' is excellent as is 'broke'

West of Memphis - three teens wrongfully convicted of what authorities described as a "satanic" killing of three young boys in early 90s in small town Arkansas. Documentary focuses on their fight for (still to be received) justice, the support they got leading to their release and explores the original murder case. Absolutely gripping, if harrowing, stuff.
