    I do like Ross Kemp - his subject matter is usually quite heavy. I recall one time he was in the jungle and some guy threatened to shoot him and the way Ross stood up to him was so ballsy He's one tough dude.
    I think that was when he was in PNG. That was a home hitting episode for me, I used to live there and it summed up my day to day life spot on .

    David Attenborough is a fave in our household. And any travel related docos are always good.

    Love Louis Theroux!! The first one I saw was the Westboro church one. OMG lol.

    Ross Kemp is a bit full on for me. I did watch the PNG one. Wowsers. Tonight's is on child sex abuse in Britain. Too icky for me so I've changed it.

    David Attenborough is our fave. We watched the Life Story one tonight. Did anyone see that? The poor little goslings! I was horrified. My DS2 is obsessed with David A, so we have a good collection of DVD's.

    Another sciencey one that DS1 and I love (they can be a little complex for the younger ones) is Brian Cox and his Wonders collection. Very very fascinating.

    A place to discuss what we've watched lately, recommend favourite docos and general documentary chat.

    Also, a place to alert each other to something interesting that might be coming up on TV (SBS/ABC or Netflix/Stan).

    I watched The Imposter last night (Stan), and at the moment we're watching a series on Stan called Behind The Mask - it's about sporting team mascots.

    Some docos I've enjoyed and would recommend - Senna, Blackfish, All This Mayhem, Amy, Spellbound, Babies. I also love anything by Louis Theroux.
    I loove Loius Theroux. I've watched so much of his stuff.

    One good doco i watched recently on Netflix was Hot girls wanted about the massive amateur p o r n industry in the US. Very sad.

    Subbing! Love love love docos although I used to watch many more when I lived in the States. They have such good cable.

    The most recent one I watched was Hunting Ground, about the rape culture at US universities. It's well worth watching.

    I've downloaded Oranges and Sunshine, about British kids who were brought to Australia in the 70s.

    One of my all time favourites, although it is FULL ON, is Spike Lee When the Levee Broke about Hurricane Katrina. Whoa.

    Overall I'm disappointed with Netflix AU. Not enough variety for me.
    @sunnyflower - I felt so bad for those girls! It was shocking how quickly they are used.

    That Oranges and Sunshine sounds interesting. I have watched all the episodes of 7 up. I love that too.
