    I would recommend Seven Ages, an RTE documentary about the history and development of the Irish State.. Also documentary about Lemass starting on RTE 1 tonight, looks like it could be interesting. Probably the last Taoiseach we had with any real vision...

    I thought the documentary called 'No end in sight' was brilliant. It's about how george dubya and his scumbag cronies completely fooked up the takeover in Iraq, it's told by the people who were there first trying to set things up after the invasion, riveting. 'Supersize Me' was good also the series that bloke did after that wasn't bad. Micheal Moores' first film 'Roger and Me' is excellently disturbing aswell.

    Ohh good topic for the forum

    There is a brilliant documentary film (name escapes me at the moment.... ill check when Im home from work) based on child soldiers with subtitles.

    Watch a lot of Prime Time Investigates.

    Channel 4 is good for theres such as Parents who push their kids into Beauty contests, Golfing contests, etc.

    Ah what can I say - Americans - crazy shower.

    I was talking over a couple of pints about how easy it is to set up a religion in the states. Jedi is a recognised religion after 40,000 signatures.

    Does that mean we could make Liverpool FC a religion?!?

    Excellent quality documentary of the infamous documentary between Martin Bashir and Micheal Jackson. Its a must watch and I personally think Bashir did a lot of damage to such a weak charachter. It has been said that it was this documentary that send him over the edge

    Ever notice Martin Bashir has never been seen doing any documentary since. The guy ruined his own good name.

    Just checked Wikipedia: Bashir is currently employed by ABC and co-presents their current affairs show 20/20. He also took over from Ted Koppel in 2005 following the famous news anchors final broadcast for Nightline, and had a small role as himself in the comedy film Mike Bassett: England Manager.

    no documentaries though

    A few on here will remember this war kicking off in Chechnya... it started on new years eve in 1994. No one gave the Chechens a chance,but against all odds,they inflicted a demoralizing defeat on the Russian army. who then pulled out of chechnya in 1996.
    Russia returned in 1999 under putin,still smarting from their earlier defeat,and accused the chechen rebels of bomb attacks in russia. what followed was a vicious, brutal, and no holds barred war of attrition,where Russian generals were quoted as telling the troops "there is no such thing as a chechen civilian". and the chechen rebels told to take no prisoners,and it ended up where men,women,children and the elderly were fair game for both sides.with thousands of civilians missing,and mass graves full of people still being uncovered this year.
    This documentary is woth a look.
