    I am watching a program on the Uttarakhand

    tragedy.I went there quite recently and feel horrified thinking what if I was there.These tragedies are more horrifying as they are the effect of man's exploitation of Nature.

    Watching World Cup since this morning,

    all players are good and quick on their feet. I wonder what that ball would be saying each time it gets kicked!

    One of my favorites is 'Why We Fight.

    ' It makes you see the wars and conflicts that have happened and are ongoing in a new light. I have so many that I like can't name them all.

    Lot's of controversy surrounding the Mermaid

    Documentaries. Did you see the second one where Scientists working Greenland's coast encountered the same thing and got it on video, prompting Norway to shut down the oil drilling in that area?

    My eldest son told me " knowledge " about the

    universe and I asked him a question and he answered "I do not know, I closed the TV, then" I believed that he had learned it in school! But no, it was in a TV documentary.

    The nature program on PBS has the most amazing

    I've only started watching a month ago.

    It's rather more entertaining than watching the few channels available on our television. It has given me a broader picture of the world, expanding the knowledge I have beyond the limits of only that which I see in my the daily life.

    Some Documentaries May Have Become "lietoyoumentaries"

    If you get all your facts from documentaries, you will be sorely lacking in truth. There are so many falsehoods you would think they have nothing to lose but the truth. For instance, do you ever question something you saw in a documentary, then go check the stated facts as given...

    I love watching documentaries.

    Watching real life stories is so exciting to me. I don't like fake movies cause documentaries are so interesting. You can actually view a persons whole life in two or three hours. I get creeped out by the ones about murderers. Documentaries are great entertainment.

    Life In A Day.

    I saw Life in A Day two years ago because my friend kept insisting me to watch it. "Life in A Day, go watch it" he said. I was hesitant at first because the title sounded boring. The documentary is basically an hour long movie which features series of video clips shot by 80,000...

    Really sad, makes you feel uneasy and deeply sad for the families. You can break a limb and recover from it but if you damage your brain, your in for some major suffering. Some don't fully recover. It's no joke. Take care of your brain! Please be safe out there.

    about animals, or gardens, or something from our historical culture. I seldom watch anything else, as it is too repetitive.
