Yes both turbo folk and turkish music influenced chalga, which appeared in the times when turbo folk appeared in Serbia, and also is heavily involved with the mafia.

I like it how they kind of touched the topic of radical islam in Bosnia, because it is an existing problem, which must be studied and moves must be made to stop its growth. Unfortunately after the war, many of the mujihideen who fought on bosnian side remained in Bosnia.

The documentary however felt a bit anti-serbian to me. Blaming the warcrimes only on them, and the whole Kosovo topic which is very controversial.

Great documentary about Indigenous Australians and the complex and often bloody relations between them and the European invaders. (For the sake of your sanity, avoid the comments.)

Documentary about changing immigration to Australia. Haven't watched this one yet, but it got good reviews and sounds interesting.

1964 26 part documentary about the First World War. Have only watched the first episode, but apparently it contains a lot of interviews with eyewitnesses.
