I like Ken Burns's doc's. I have the jazz one, the West, and the Civil war one. They all have their critics but I must admit i really enjoy them. Not sure I'll go for this one, though. It's getting ever harder to find the time to watch these things.
My latest thing is to listen to audio courses from The Great Courses. I can get through the courses pretty rapidly on my commute -sometimes up to four / five lectures in a day. I've just downloaded one on the history of espionage!
The other documentary favourites of mine are Dan Carlin's Hardcore Histories. These are immense and very long - but brilliant - podcats. The one on the Russian Front in WW2 and the one on WW1 were just brilliant and worth six hours of anyone's time.
walkingdecay: The smell of wet dog is not nice. You'd think they would do something about that.

walkingdecay: Martin: Limited time free trial of Fallout 76 on a the moment. Having tried it I think it's not bad, certainly not the disaster it was claimed to be during the press feeding frenzy. Apparently the next patch is introducing NPCs too.

walkingdecay: Teehee! Wet dog combined with essence of cat. I know someone who wears that fragrance.

Martin: walkingdecay sorry just noticed our Fallout 76 shout out - if there are NPCs and proper quests, I may well invest...

walkingdecay: At the moment it's still a Mission Impossible type thing driven by found tapes, but it's completely soloable. I did about five hours without a word to or help from anyone.

Onechordtrick: Half way through Rolling Thunder and listening to “a Hard Rain’s a Gonna Fall”. Could almost be the prototype for punk.

walkingdecay: I'm almost sorry I cancelled Netflix. I'll have to get the Blu ray.
