I must have said this a million times before, but I am hooked on documentaries. Give me a good documentary any evening, snug in bed, nursing a cup of tea and I am fixed to the screen. OK that is only half of the truth. I pretty much wake up to a good documentary. It starts with my work-out on the cross trainer where I either start a new one or finish off the one from the previous evening. Whilst I make myself breakfast, I watch a documentary. When lunch is finally there, I will finish off the one I started in the morning (this is documentary number 2). Of course whilst cooking dinner I will watch a documentary (well more like listening to one). When Sebastian has been read a bed time story and still can’t sleep we will watch a documentary – they tend to be fairly limited to castles, knights and pirates – but hey, they are documentaries! At 11 pm, when I get to that point that I started this post with, I will be quite frequently on documentary number 4, often of the more darker and sinister kind.
It’s quite bizarre I grant you that. But as a self-proclaimed expert in this genre, I thought I’d share some gems you really shouldn’t miss.
Happy docu watching 🙂

Mindless and fun with a few really good insights. Most notably, you can count yourself lucky for two things: still having your wits AND your freedom

Whatever you think of the man, he has lead a fascinating life. Remember the tampon analogy?
