    Dark Days is pretty good. It follows a guy who brings a camera down underneath abandoned subways in NYC and reveals the little towns of people who lived there. Some had built little houses and everything. The bad news was a lot were getting TB, which left untreated will kill you. (TB is susceptible to UV light, so living underground is not a good idea.)

    cool sountrack too by DJ Shadow

    Most certainty a repost .. but the BBC documentary "A History of Syria" is worth a watch.

    Evacuate Earth. This will scare the crap out of you in the first minute. But keep in mind that it's all just a big sci-fi production... the end of the world probably won't happen in our time...

    I love the original Connections series. To me it's aged extremely well. The way Burke traces the connection between historical events down through time (for example from the invention of money in ancient times to the the advent of the lateen sail in the Middle Ages to the nuclear bomb in modern times) is so entertaining and so instructive in regard to human actions and unintended consequences.

    Another thing I like how he puts inventions and ideas into context and shows step-by-step how they came about. Your left thinking simultaneously: "Man inventor X was a smart mf'er" and "Given the influences that were working on inventor X, I see how he came up with what he did."

    The whole thing can be watched online here: http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/james-burke-connections/

    Can't say Burke's outfits have ages as well as the series though.
