lovely posting, and it's already in the thread, no way!

Sorry, I'll make sure to pay attention to your attempts to dominate people with your internet superiority.

You know what isn't in the OP? Hotel Torgo which follows a look in at the infamous filming of the film Manos the Hands of Fate made famous by Mystery Science Theatre 3000 explained by one of the surviving members of the crew and the daughter of Hal the director and actor.

The BBC did a kick rear end documentary about the history of modern terrorism a few years back anyone stumbled across it online?

No, it wasn't that. The title was actually more or less along the lines of The History of Terror.

It was made in 2007 I think.

I checked the last few pages and the OP so sorry if this is a repost.

In 2001 this guy went onto the British version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. With a bit of luck and a helluva lot of cheating he 'won' the million, only to have his little plan broken down by pretty much all the production crew and a couple of members of the audience and he himself convicted of deception and booted out of the Army (once he spent a year and a half in jail of course).

Its a hugely entertaining documentary as you can really watch the whole thing unfold in excruciating detail. Eight parts 10 minutes each, first part:

That dickhead, he became a Z-list Reality TV star after that and still made money.

An Idiot Abroad is brilliant, and Gervais has announced that Karl Pilkington will be in a similar series called The Bucket List later this year :toot:

Channel 4 did a cheerful documentary called Meet the Natives, where they brought a tribe from the Vanuatu Islands to UK who believe that Prince Philip (the least eloquent person in the royal family after Charles) is the reincarnation of a divine being sacred to them (wiki).

This one is quite good for those who are weary due to the more retarded documentaries Channel 4 has done in the past (Crip On A Trip, loving really?).

And the Dara does comedy for the LARPers was brillaintly touching.

He also kind of made him a reluctant millionaire. The bullying everyone goes on about is almost solely done for our benefit. They'd make pretty boring shows if they all got along and just agreed with Karl without pressing for clarification on his musings.

There's a pretty long interview for New Zealand television Karl features in if anyone's interested:

This is a series of BBC documentaries looking into the culture and lifestyle of members of the British Army some of which dating back to the sixties all the way to the nineties.

If you have LoveFilm Instant, I'll honestly suggest Shaking Hands With The Devil which follows the UN General with his men who tried his best against the almost impossible odds to fight and save people from the Rwandian Genocide of 1994. The documentary follows him trying to come to terms with his inner demons and with interviews with other UN and Journo colleagues as he revisits the country.

anyone following the bbc empire documentaries with Jeremy Paxman?

I like em a lot. they're about the empire the UK once had, but the title probably made that clear.

Are they on iPlayer?

I've been meaning to look for something like this but the only guy who I thought who'd do them is a complete loon and racist with a hard on for the Queen.

Also, Historically and British anything with Tony Robinson (BAAAALDRIICK!) is gold.

A BBC documentary with reinactment bits about the terror era of the Revolution where academics also discuss Robespierre and his part in the creation of state sponsered terror.

My only objection really is the French Academic having a horribly watery lisp than clashes with his accent. This wouldn't be so bad but he gets so worked up in this.

I have noticed how Theroux has become somewhat souless overtime, he's sort of moved from curious disarming nerd to pestering nerd.

He is a little colder in this as I suspect he has strong feelings towards the subject matter. I squirmed a little towards the end when he visited the dead directors widow though.

There's some point deep in the middle of this where the narrator apparently reads aloud a line like "Tinge of guilt here." while talking about the slave trade.

If you wanted them to go into detail about history, causes and ethics of 17th and 18th Slavery a different more serious documentary would have been better. This one seems pretty tounge in cheek in most parts but does a good job pointing out Pirates were honestly bastards in most respects.

A stark portrayal of the actual situation in Afghanistan, and just how hosed it's going to be in 2014 when NATO leaves.

Warning: Very depressing.

Christ, it gets worse towards the end when you realize the documentary maker might be talking about the Marine advisers you saw at the start.

I want to slap the back of the head of that feckless MP too.
