I've been working my way through the Clive James Postcard From series, a bit dated but enjoyable nonetheless.

Short but interesting.
There's some interesting Imperial War Museum propaganda docs on the Talking Pictures channel.
BBC4 on Catchup The Black Ball final 1985 world snooker final, the final frame Steve Davis V Dennis Taylor
Return to Belsen on ITV.
BBC4 Britain Beneath Your feet two episodes... not bad...
The Vietnam War starts on PBS tomorrow at 10.15am, repeated at 9.15pm.
Personally I think it's Ken Burns best work (and that's saying something)!
If you've not seen it give it a go, it's superb. The first episode sets things before the Americans come in. Bear with it it's well worth it. Soundtrack is fantastic also.
btw @Mad Al and some others might like to know that Burns is currently in production of a documentary about Muhammad Ali
Will watch...loved The Civil War series
They've been running Burns' The War series on freeview recently, stunning film footage.
The Secret life of the Cell ....BBC4 shows how viruses attack and how the body defends itself

I must have watched the Civil war series at least 5 times and will never tire of it.
i'll watch that tonite
Cannibal warlords of Liberia. It is on Vice TV. Fucking mental. One fucked up place was/is West Africa I have been binging documentaries a bit lately. The Vietnam and others by Burns - mentioned above, are brilliant. But the Sierra Leonne and Liberia stuff out there is scary stuff.
I stumbled across this and it was absolutely gripping.
Follows the story of one Mother's arduous journey to overturn an 800 year old piece of legislation (Double Jeopardy).
I was astounded at what the police missed from their search of the house in the case, and how the Mum's actions later affected another very famous British legal case (amongst others):

This from the same series as that above.
Again, an incredible sequence (no pun intended) of events that led to the single biggest change in criminal investigations across the entire world:

Bizarrely, this was in the news yesterday and was one of the cases affected by the mother's long battle above:
