I was watching this random documentary about agriculture and it occurred to me that documentaries are really easy things to lose yourself into, so I thought about creating a thread to share and discuss any interesting documentary about anything that might be entertaining.

Documentaries can get political so try to tone it down and not argue their ideological merits here if it comes to that.

Titanium: Kroll Method


Titanium: Armstrong Method


Holy shit, Armstrong method looks like it's a million times better and easier than the Kroll method with its 23583 furnaces requiring 100000 degree heat.


I think you are mixing up the documentary thread for the Educational Youtube videos thread that is right here



The fuck even is this site?


youtube but comfy



>Family Living with Rare Genetic Condition (My Perfect Family: Friedriechs Ataxia)
Joe Boon is turning 30. It’s a milestone for anyone, but particularly for Joe and his family, who carry a rare genetic and degenerative condition that carries a life expectancy of just 37. Three out of five siblings - including Joe - have Friedreich's Ataxia, which gradually attacks the neuromuscular system. Not diagnosed until their teens and early 20s, the family have battled to cope with the implications of the disease - each one handling it differently.
They did a follow up documentary on her a few weeks ago that was also good.


You're a normalfag which is far, far worse


Documentary about the colombian writer Fernando Vallejo. Highly recommended.


Is that the guy from Sopranos?


This guy is antinatalist right?


About to watch this, lets see how it goes. Ultra-zionists.


Please remember to ALWAYS POST THE TITLE of the documentary in the text, otherwise we can't find it


Where exactly have you archived them?


>an elderly succubus is shown at a shrine rolling dice to see whether she'll have good or bad luck. The narrator says that rolls can be repeated until they show good luck and one has to thank the spirits for that.
Sums up religiosity pretty well.


Does anyone know the name of this African documentary?
You guys don't post titles so we can't find it easily


it's actually crazy how many documentaries have gone down since posting. this thread is pretty old but still


Same with all my youtube playlists, everything is around 20% dead links.
We need a better way of saving youtube vids


I didn't keep up with archiving the thread and can't remember if I kept the downloads since 3 years ago, sorry. Even documentary torrents by mvgroup have ended up with no seeds. Sad stuff

If you download youtube-dl from GitHub, and possibly a youtube-dl GUI project if command line annoys you, it can download playlists etc.


Koyaanisqatsi: Life Out of Balance

>Welcome to the Strangest Hotel
Welcome to the Foxes Hotel, the seaside hotel with a difference.

At this hotel all of the staff have special needs such as Down Syndrome, Autism, brain damage and mental illness. There are 54 students and all of them work their way through a tough three year placement designed to enable them to cope in the outside world and to handle a job in hotels and catering. There are thrills, spills, tears and laughter in this bold experiment which involves a steep learning curve for kids who have often come from a very protected, almost infantilised home background.


>The 104-year old Teenager | Hayley - World's Oldest Teenager
Born with the rare genetic condition Progeria, Hayley Okines ages eight times faster than healthy people. Now 13, her body has the medical age of a 104-year-old succubus.

The filmmakers have followed Hayley’s life since she was just four years old and in this film her condition enters a new and challenging phase. Hayley’s hip joints have deteriorated so much that she must wear a metal brace all the time, even in bed at night. She is unable to attend school regularly or move about freely. Like most teenage succubi Hayley is interested in Justin Bieber, shopping, looking pretty and finding a boyfriend but her body has entered the painful decline into physical old age her family has long feared.

Hayley is now old enough to be fully conscious of the ramifications of her condition but she refuses to be beaten by it.


Messerschmitt Me 323 - The Largest Transport Aircraft of WW2


Finally a place i might be able to land a job




Nice one-hour documentary on John von Neumann from 1966.


Kimbo Slice!

I still remember in the 00s when he was the hot shit of that weird backyard boxing boom to hit the net during that time.
Hope you enjoy.


Few things are quite as comfy as enjoying a refreshing beverage while watching nature documentires.

This one is on Alpine Lakes.


>Von Neumann: Prophet of the 21st century
I liked this one a lot, too. (German with English subtitles.)


Deep Blue | Down the Rabbit Hole

Very detailed and informative video on the development of chess supercomputers and their rise to victory over the world chess champion. No added flare or fluff. Kept me interested despite me having a short attention span because of the tension and doubt from both sides of the match about their own and their opponent's capabilities


I liked this one about the austrian wine fraud, I had never heard of it but it sounds pretty serious, strangely. Sadly I have no interest for the other stories he covers.


300 Days alone… - The Movie


Are there any websites just dedicated to documentaries? Youtube is unusable and you get bombarded by UFO, global warming and pro-faggotry stuff when you search them. Looking of something more wholesome and interesting where I can browse a catalog not scrape by to find 1 video.


For torrents there is https://docuwiki.net/index.php?title=Category:Subject - which is basically a wiki of documentaries released by MVgroup. You might have to browse their forum as well.

I used to use this website a long time ago https://documentaryheaven.com/watch-online/ - it does have some low quality stuff and a conspiracy category but also other categories. I presume some of them will be old and removed from youtube now though. You can browse and find titles though.


The Making of Bambi: A Prince Is Born


I've just finished watching a bunch of those. I think it's a pretty good channel.


Doc about 3d printed guns in Europe.


The History of the Big Comfy Couch

The nostalgia is overwhelming man.


Nice long and detailed documentary about the American revolution.

Video quality is poor but I mainly listened to it so that didn't bother me.


Damn I loved this show as a kid. Gonna watch this now


Documentary about the War of 1812 by PBS. It was alright but there was a bit too much aboriginal whining.


Another documentary by PBS, this time about Napoleon (turbocrab with VERY strong pincers). It was actually pretty good.


China's Stolen Children

Doc about the human trafficking problem in China mainly due to their one child policy and generally broken system.


Decent documentary on the Ottoman Empire by Discovery History. Maybe a little short given the amount of history there is to cover, but also relatively information-dense and without any cheesy reenactments.


But I like cheesy reenactments ☹

That said you are right in that it is a alright documentary on the subject of the Ottoman Empire and was quite information dense. Thanks for sharing.


Another documentary by PBS, this time focused on British colonization in Africa. It was short and interesting but I found it felt scattered and lacked focus. I would have preferred a longer documentary which analyzed the colonization in a systematic way, instead of using anecdotes and focusing on individual people, as was the case here.


RIP Chuck Yeager
