This thread is for anyone who loves watching documentaries & who'd like to share their recommendations, links etc with others.
It would be nice if the emphasis could be on sailing (cruising, racing
, VOR, etc) / boating
/ the ocean / scuba diving
/ nature that you feel passionate about & think others might enjoy. Let's keep politics & religion out of it tho, please
I'll start the ball rolling.
1. A website packed with about 500 free documentaries you can watch online:
Documentary List | Top Documentary Films
gives the best playback speed BUT watching docos online chews up bandwidth fast. Don't overshoot your Mb/Gb limit if you're on an Internet
plan b/c it might get very expensive.
Most of the docos on that site can be hired at video stores, purchased online or in-store so viewing online isn't the only option.
2. A documentary called "Deep Water", made in 2006.
Again this is online but the DVD
can be bought from Amazon or at stores. It's about the nine entrants for the 1968 around the world race
, solo, unassisted...but focusses on one entrant in particular called Donald Crowhurst. It's about his journey and is rivetting stuff.
It's in 9 parts
I've only uploaded Part 1 here b/c uploading all 9 parts
will take up heaps of room. But if anyone wants me to upload all 9 parts, just ask in this thread & I'll do it
