I have a hard time watching documentaries, not because they aren’t interesting, but something with my attention span makes it hard for me to watch them. Or, maybe it’s just flashbacks to being in school and being parked in front of a really dull video while the teacher slept/took a smoke break/read a book/went to McDonald’s or whatever else they got up to behind their desk or at some undisclosed out-of-classroom location. Usually, I find it easier to read a book on the subject than watch the video.
But, re: documentaries I like history, educational reform, historical mysteries, ancient history, UFOs, space/physics, environmental causes, animals…feel free to make recommendations/share your favourites in the comments!
Here’s some of my favourites:
Cosmos with Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Waiting for Superman
War on Kids
Super Size Me & 30 Days
Ones on my to-watch list:
Secrets: Richard III Revealed
Secrets of Henry the VIII’s Palace (PBS)
