I mean, we're reformed pirates here, right?

No, we are not. We just don't talk about it.  ;)

Heist
http://www.heist-themovie.com/synopsis.html
The Impostor
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1966604/
The perp is clever and devious. And sociopathic; what he did to those families is reprehensible. Still, a fascinating documentary...

there's a four parter called something like
why tv ruined my life

a friend made me watch a couple of episodes and it's well done

and i watched the bedroom episode of
if walls could talk

which was pretty interesting too
(i'm not a fan of documentaries, but those two were fine and of course super-size me :) )

Howard Goodall's "The Story of Music" is very good, as have all of Goodall's previous series on world music.
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.

Check out the BBCi player desktop app i've seen some amazing docu's on it ,you also have the choice of full 1080p HD on some shows..you download them and you've got a month to watch them.

https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&sqi=2&ved=0CC8QFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.bbc.co.uk%2Fiplayer%2Finstall&ei=8CFCUY6NC66X0QWMh4CYAw&usg=AFQjCNFgwlw43HMxBYk7EatbYlt3ewoykg&bvm=bv.43287494,d.d2k

There's a couple of hiccups with Chrome at the mo but i use I.E 9 to download programmes.
