Documentaries on youtube


Purpose of this thread is to help other people find good documentaries about history on youtube. Personally I have problem finding good ones. You can put any documentaries that you think it deserve to be watched, about any period from history.

I hope you will find this thread interesting.
Thanks in advance.

Maybe I'm just easy to please because I think there are lots of good docs on youtube. I just watched this one:

And this one has 6 parts:

And again, 5 or 6 parts:

The Kon Tiki expedition-much of Heyerdahl's science has been debunked but it's still a helluva story.

That sort of outlet is about the only place you will find documentaries any more.

A documentary about the Soviet-Afghanistan war, if somebody is interested in that particular conflict, which in my opinion should be observed and studied:
