    Haha I watched that the other day, it is a weird documentary but well done and I watched all of it which is rare as I often have a short attention span for most things.

    The Robert guy is a total nutcase.

    The duel they had at the end was probably the most awkward thing I've ever seen. . .:laugh:

    Guy Martin's Great Escape.

    Apart perhaps from his gravelly voice and unrelenting Yorkshireness it's hard to dislike Guy Martin. He'll try anything, clearly has nuts of steel and is as mad as a box of frogs. In this episode he recreates Steve McQueen's iconic motorcycle jump over the barbed wire border fences as he tries to escape the chasing German troops.
    "Disappointingly it turns out that motorbike mad McQueen didn't perform the stunt himself because the film company wouldn't let him."

    I learned all about how deceptively tricky the stunt was, and that despite the Germans using exclusively BMW bikes in the war McQueen insisted on using a disguised British Triumph. Interesting. (To me).

    Don't F**k with Cats - Die Jagd nach einem Internet-Killer (TV Mini-Series 2019) - IMDb

    A Netflix documentary about a nutter who was so desperate for fame in this age of reality TV nonsense that he went to lengths most wouldn't go to.

    Was good but for me the 2 main characters were almost too professional and looked more like actors in a mockumentary. 3 episodes and worth a watch and slight spoiler but it doesn't show the most gruesome stuff even though the perpetrator did upload videos to the web.

    Dunno if this is classed as a documentary but really loved watching this series about James Herriots former practice, if like me you like watching men cut the bollocks off animals and stick their arms up their arses then you will enjoy this.

    It was an interesting watch for sure, fair play to main people involved in tracking him down, christ his mum was a bit of a nutter as well.

    Spy In The Wild

    Cameras placed in fake animals that can walk, swim and fly get close up to the real creatures they have copied. Brilliant watching monkeys being inquisitive wondering who this newcomer is.

    Well that was some mad load of bollocks! Compulsive viewing though, worth seeing.

    Does anyone watch Homicide Hunter with Lieutenant Joe Kenda?

    Some very good cases he has solved.

    Virus: Invisible Killers

    Seeing as in the middle of a crisis thought i would check out the other nasty diseases that have done the rounds. Is a three part series, first one was about smallpox.....yuk. Once you caught it you were covered in spots and scabs would appear all over the body. The last known case was in the late 1970's. There was a claim that the US and Russia have got this virus stored away, God help us if it fell into the wrong hands.

    Atlanta's missing and murdered : The Lost Children. I watched this in complete and utter disbelief ,this is the kind of injustice that falls well beyond the realms of what would usually be contained in the pages of a dystopian horror novel. I will leave the video below to portray how harrowing a watch it is.

    Return to Belsen (ITV)

    When the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp was liberated by the British in 1945 Richard Dimbleby was there to record the horrific sights as man's inhumanity to man was laid bare. 75 years later his son, David Dimbleby revisits the now silent, haunted site and shows some of the film and interviews that were taken at the time. Not for the faint hearted, even after all these years it's unbelievable to see the images that faced the liberators, it was Hell on earth.

    Long Shot

    Netflix doc about a chap in Los Angeles who was framed for the murder of a 16 year old girl. Is for the grace of God that he was caught on camera attending a baseball game at The Dodgers Stadium otherwise he would have been looking at life with no parole or the death sentence.
