    Just finished watching that. Easily the best Falklands documentary I have seen. Some very brutal and moving stories there.

    This is a great Documentary named Vikings: Journey to New Worlds.

    It is very high quality and is about the Vikings and their discoveries of Iceland, Greenland, and Vinland.

    The Last day of World War One. (BBC Timewatch)

    Broadcaster Michael Palin tells the story of how the First World War ended on 11th November 1918 and reveals the shocking truth that soldiers continued to be killed in battle for many hours after the Armistice had been signed. Recounting the events of the days and hours leading up to that last morning, Palin tells the personal stories of the last soldiers to die as the minutes and seconds ticked away to the 11 o'clock ceasefire.

    The First World War from above. (BBC 2010)

    The story of the Great War told from a unique new aerial perspective. Featuring two remarkable historical finds, including a piece of archive footage filmed from an airship in summer 1919, capturing the trenches and battlefields in a way that's rarely been seen before. And aerial photographs taken by First World War pilots - developed for the first time in over ninety years - show not only the devastation inflicted during the fighting, but also quirks and human stories visible only from above. Presented by Fergal Keane.
    Parts 1-4.

    I was delighted to have found this on Youtube yesterday, the Channel Four program "The Dragon Has Two Tongues" which isn't on DVD. It was screened in the Eighties and involved two presenters Professor Gwyn Williams and Gwyn A. Williams, debating about Welsh History and its identity in the modern world. I remember watching it as a boy with my father. The lively and forthright debates between the two of them were really a break from conventional television programming and are in a different class than brainless rubbish churned out today on television. At the time I didn't particularly like the Marxist orientated stance of Gwyn A. Williams but today I really respect him as a man who had strong convictions about society and social change, even though I still don't agree with much of the rhetoric he used in analyzing Welsh history. However it's a great pity there doesn't seem to be many people around today with that same strength of character and spirit in a political world devoid of any form of intellectual debate.

    A Biography of America - Go to preferred section and select 'View the video'

    This is good series on American history. It's not as comprehensive as an AP textbook, but it's well-presented, informative, and sometimes includes round table discussions. Transcripts of the videos are also available.

    The Twenties in Colour. (BBC)

    Series examining Albert Kahn's ambitious Archives of the Planet project, in which he sent photographers around the world to document all aspects of human life.
    A brilliant series (IMO) showing the work of Frenchman Albert Khan who sent photographers and filmakers throughout the globe during the early 20th century.

    Europe: After the Fire

    When the Armistice was signed in 1918, Kahn's team photographed the jubilation in Paris.

    Excellent acted documentary on a p.o.w. turned gladiator who achieved fame, wealth and freedom during Vespasian and Titus' reign.
    Realistic and informative.
