    DH and I just started watching 60 Days In tonight. It's billed as a reality TV program but is more like a doco. It's about 6 people who volunteer to go under cover in a US jail. OMG! Scary and fascinating all at once.

    Hello my people!!! Dh thinks Im odd for enjoying doco's

    I recently watched one about two sons of high ranking Nazi's in ww2. I cant remember the name but its on Netflix. Was very interesting to hear what they thought about their relatives.

    I also love Loius Theroux.

    I enjoyed recently She Wolves, a few on some castles in England on Netflix

    Ooooh I want to watch that!

    Did the goggle box peeps watch it on one episode? Looks like something right up my alley.

    We recorded it on Foxtel a few months ago so it's likely GB might have covered it. Both DH and I wondered why we left it so long to watch (it was because we were watching Making of a Murderer and Ross Kemp docos). It's a show that ends with a "OMG" moment each episode.

    I watched a Canadian doco this morning on one province involvement in ww1. It was very interesting.

    Love love love Louis, even though it can be confronting.

    Chefs table is great and beautifully filmed.

    My beautiful broken brain (Netflix) was good.

    There is a gorgeous little series called Often Awesome that's on YouTube and documents a young man dying of ALS and the story of his partner and friends caring for him, I loved it even though its very sad.

    Anything by David Attenborough, especially his very old work.
    Anything about Africa.
    Also love the se.x/relationship docos that are often on abc2 on Friday nights and Ross Kemp's docos.
    Slow Train Through Africa was excellent.
    And we also enjoyed the series Toughest Place To Be A...
    ETA and of course love Louis Theroux. His way of taking the p!ss while coming across earnestly interested is perfect. My favourites are probably the two he did on the westboro baptist church
    A good Aussie doco about young people and sexuality was broadcast a couple of years ago called love and sex in the age of pornography. Highly recommend it.
    @gingermillie you are after my heart
    I could of written this word for word apart from the last paragraph- I have never heard of it! Will have to check it out.

    I love rewatching my long way down set when I need a pick up

    One I don't recommend is Hiroshima on Netflix. It was fascinating but simply too traumatising that one has stayed with me for months, one survival story where their kids were stuck under the rubble and everything was burning and they just couldn't pull them out and heard them screaming for them as the burnt to death really really upset me

    Absolutely loved Enough Rope with Andrew Denton. A mini-doco he did about mental illness a number of years ago called Angels and Demons was brilliant.
