I loved this documentary. The high school interview and the live footage were top notch.

Lots of wildlife-themed BBC documentaries with Attenborough.

The only other one I can think of right now is Herzog's Grizzly Man.

+ a friggin million. How wasn't this mentioned till the 3rd page? I find this documentary to be absolutely hilarious. Tim Treadwell was great but he's much funnier now that he's dead.
