A List of All The Documentaries I’ve Watched in The Last Year

Along with reading, I love watching documentaries, as well as other non-fiction shows. I love learning, whether that is through reading or watching something on TV, I am always interested in learning more about a variety of different subjects. So here is a list of all of the documentaries (or most of them; I usually rate everything on IMDB after watching it but sometimes I forget) in the last year or so. I have categorized them by genre and the ones that are bold are my favorites. And when I say favorites, in some cases this means films that deal with issues I am particularly passionate about. I have also added where I watched it, to the best of my knowledge and have given a more specific genre when necessary! I will keep updating this throughout the year, since I watch so many, so bookmark this page if you are looking for updates. I will add all new titles to the bottom of each category!

If you have Amazon Prime TV, they offer free trials for most of their channels, which is how I watched many of these documentaries. Some trials are for 1 month and some are only for 7 days, but a free trial is a free trial. Also, if you don’t have Amazon Prime and want to try it there is a 30 Day Free Trial that includes Amazon Prime TV.

Like I said, I am sure there are more, I just probably didn’t rate them so I don’t remember names! I am always looking for new documentaries to watch, especially in the areas of history and more current events such as events in the last 20 years and any to do with natural pregnancy, childbirth and living, so feel free to leave any suggestions in the comments section!
