    It's a fairly obvious (for want of a better word) one but the Frozen Planet one that was on tv just recently was amazing. IMO anything David Attenborough is amazing.

    That's hard if you don't narrow it down to a subject. Environment? Sport? Bio? Music? Etc.

    I second anything with David Attenborough. Planet Earth is fantastic.

    Yay, thank you for suggesting, I don't get TV, so this is new to me.

    Sociology, history, politics are my big things, but I like watching almost anything.

    Hmmmm, it depends on what you're into? Some doccos can be quite disturbing but hard not to watch such as 'Deliver us from Evil' and 'Capturing the Friedmans' which are about child sex abuse. 'Jesus Camp' and 'Devil's Playground' and Andrew Denton's 'God on My Side' are good if you're interested in doccos about religion which I am. 'The Bridge' was a really interesting one on Mental illness and suicide althrough very sad.

    'Paradise Lost' was a great doccumentary on what most people consider the wrongful incarseration of three teenagers for a triple murder because they were a little bit different. They are so clearly innocent and incapable of such voilence yet one of the victims's stepfathers is clearly crazy.

    One of my absolute favourites that I've watched a few times is 'The King of Kong.' It's an awesome docco on two guys batteling it out for the highest score in Donkey Kong. I'm not at all into computer games yet this had me on the edge of my seat and actually in tears at the end of it (and I hardly ever cry in movies). Definitely worth watching.


    Would love to hear yours or anyone else's recommendations as well.

    Yeah, I loved Frozen Planet and also 'March of the Penguins' narrated by Morgan Freeman.

    ABC recently showed a lot of Louis Theroux's docos, which I really enjoyed. I like sociology/psychology ones the best and I think these fall under that category.
