    Ken Burns Prohibition and if you love baseball check out his 18 and a half hour Baseball documentary. Well actually anything from Ken Burns is worth watching.

    Also, Grand Prix: The Killer Years, its a very emotional documentary but very in depth with lots of graphic footage

    Le Mans is a classic.

    See James Gardner is Grand Prix, its brilliant. Brilliant. Better than Grand Prix, actually, but in a different way.

    No problem. Also, like someone posted earlier, everyone needs to check out Cocaine Cowboy's. The first one is fantastic, the second one I didn't really care for. Rakontour makes some really good documentaries. They did Broke and The U for ESPN's 30 for 30, the Cocaine Cowboy's movies, and Square Grouper. They are a quality documentary group.

    I just started watching the first episode. So far so good. The old footage is amazing.

    Rip!: A Remix Manifesto is another great documentary that about copyright laws but is very entertaining throughout the whole video

    Anthropologists under the magnifying glass. Specifically, several who studied the Yanomamo tribes of South America.
    That's Yanomamo, not Yo-mama.
