    The Tribal WIves series thats just finished was an eye opener, it's still on the Iplayer I believe.

    i watched the cove recently - was an environmental about the mass slaughter of dolphins in japan. very good.

    also, food inc. - interesting look at the food trail in america...

    and agree with Anvil as suggested above

    thanks for the ideas, not seen any of them. I've expanded the date range to include the last 2 years.

    Religulous was thought provoking and funny

    Bigger, Faster, Stronger,
    A Complete History of My Sexual Failures

    Into The Universe with Stephen Hawking (2010)
    Ancient Aliens (2010)

    I seem to have an obsession for anything cosmology/cosmogony related this year.
    The Hawking one had some impressive visuals, but both series were full of interesting ideas.


    (Shame Ninja was taken down last night, I wouldn't even know a lot of series existed without them :x)

    some good ones mention, will have a watch of the history of sexual failures & food inc, look very good

    capitalism by Michael Moore is pretty good, obviously needs to be taken with a pinch of salt though,

    which reminds me of BUS 174 - the most memerising doc I have seen in years. I was truly shocked by it.

    Thanks everyone for some great suggestions, probably going to watch the doors one, food inc and the Steven Hawkins one this weekend

    Go to Demonoid, register an account if you have to, and check out their range of documentaries, sorted by popularity and filtered by age and category. Demonoid's great, it's got some really good stuff on offer, and a userbase far more discerning than most other P2P sites. I sometimes find lost gems by llooking at what like-minded people have uploaded.

    Look around, you'll find some amazing docs.

    Make sure it's the latest Hawking series, they all seem to get muddled up
    The third (and final) episode is double length too.
