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.

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