Lots of BBC documentary suggestions sadly. Genocide against indigenous people defined the British empire for over 300 years. Not many BBC documentaries about those.

The BBC did  a 13 part documentary series called 'End of Empire' in 1985 about the original forced Brexits from each of  the 'colonies in the 20C. But by some incredible faux pas, there was no episode on Ireland.

The one they did on Iran was one of the most remarkable documentaries of its time, it centred on the period  of Operation Ajax, the CIA/MI6 staged coup in 1953 in Iran  that ousted the progressive socialist elected government  and installed the Shah. They actually interviewd the MI6 agent who managed the whole coup. And is the background to todays state of affairs in Iran,

That story was retold  in a more recent documentary Coup 53.
