been getting into documentaries recently, but kinda fed up with the whole conspiracy ones ( Zeitgeist etc), done planet earth, the universe etc.
BBC iplayer and 4od isn't up to much, although 'doomsday code' on 4od was quite good.
Seen alot of the more obvious ones with good ratings on IMDB

Any recommendation guys ( pref available online)?

I saw this 20 years ago and it severly disturbed me. I think I cried for an hour solid. What is wrong with Americans? Still by far the best doc I've ever seen.

Horizons is really good, but its a struggle trying to find the older ones on the net . Been looking for an episode about the black-scholes equations for a while now!

I don't rate him, but a lot of people seem to go on about Adam Curtis.

Religious is good as well depending on your views on the subject. Mine are aligned with the docu.
