  This is a fantastic documentary & easily one of the best on uTube.  It describes the man who first unified China, began building the Great Wall & created the Terra Cotta Army.  It also delves into the archeological artifacts from which his life has been pieced together . 
  Another marvelous documentary which, unfortunate for us all, is often taken down by the copyright owners.  I for one, [Will Binder] have scoured the net trying to purchase an English version, but to this day, have been unable to find it.  There are at least two segments, this being part one. 
  It deals with the machinations between Cleopatra, Antony, Octavian, Brutus & Cassius after the assination of Gaius Julius Caesar.  The second of the series is not on the net as of this writing. 
  As good as the above documentary, if not better.  This delves into why Rome decided to not expand east of the Rhein. This is the fourth time I have had to establish a new link since uTube has a bad habit of taking down educational videos.  The old link is here. And another.
The Battle against Rome, the Battle of Varus.  Part two, currently is in the above link; before it had been split into two parts.  The old link. And another.
  Born in 1163 during a turbulent period, Temujin gained a reputation as a fearless warrior.  In 1206, a council met to declare Temujin, Genghis Khan -Great King. He did not aim to slaughter but was interested in conquering and gaining wealth.  He often used consummate skill to avoid conflict via emissaries who would spread tales of fear of his impending war machine.  He encouraged commerce within his realm.  He forbade his  troops to attack merchants & through his control of the main trading routes, trade & culture flourished as people could travel within the empire from China to the Black Sea.  He was also tolerant of religions & exempted priests from paying taxes.   
Khublai Khan: Fall of the Mongol Hordes. 
  Great documentary which unfortunately isn't on the net as of this writing.  Archeological evidence found off of Japan, which explains how the "kamikaze" brought down the Mongol fleet off it's shore.  If this is available again on the net [IN FULL] please let us know.
Secrets of the Samurai Sword. The alchemy, metallurgy & history behind the finest sword ever made by humans.  Another excellent documentary uTube has taken down.  Old link here. 
  Great lecture by Dr. Dennis Stanford who spearheaded the idea that Europeans colonized North America tens of thousands of years ago through similarity between Clovis and Solutrean artifacts.
The Aquatic Ape Theory
   Well made three part documentary on this theory, which posulates that our ancestors were semi-aquatic before becoming predominantly terrestrial.  Why are humans bipedal?  Why are we the only primate to sweat?  Why are we so fat compared to all other primates?  Why are we the only apes to like water?  Why do we have conscious breath control?  Just a few of the questions the theory attempts to answer. 
  Eight part documentary on geology.  How various hypotheses became theories & we have come to our current understanding of geologic history.  Only the first part is highlighted here, but all eight can be found on this channel.  Fantastic series to brush up on one's skeletal knowledge of geology. 

  Three part documentary where psychologists & quantum physicists attempt to answer questions such as;  How do you define consciousness?  Are we connected at the quantum level? Is there a soul? Are there psychic powers? For thousands of years we have asked these existential questions & religions have attempted to explain our nature. With the advent of quantum mechanics, string & membrane theory, science has reached a new level of understanding.
  Fascinating documentary on the monks of Xiao Lin who began perfecting the martial arts of the east over 1500 years ago. 

  Mercury & Gemini Astronaut, Gordon Cooper, converses about his experiences with this topic. 
  NASA research scientist Dr. Richard Haines speaks about his 3,000 cases of unusual visual & radar sightings of unexplained aerial phenomena [known as the AIRCAT files] that he has compiled. He has worked on the Gemini, Apollo & Skylab programs as well as several others.
  Ross Dedrickson, a Colonel inthe USAF, describes his past responsibilities, including maintaining the inventory of the nuclear weapon stockpile & their security. Reports that UFOs were seen at various nuclear storage facilities & some of the manufacturing plants are confirmed as he has seen them himself many times. He claims his first sighting was when the famous fly-over over the Capitol happened in July of 1952.
  Captain Robert Salas spent seven years in active duty in the USAF from 1964 to 1971. He testifies about a UFO incident on the morning of March 16, 1967 where 16 nuclear missiles simultaneously became non-operational at two different launch facilities immediately after guards saw UFOs hovering above. The guards could not identify these objects even though they were only 30 feet away.
  Professor Robert Jacobs was a Lieutenant in the Air Force during the 1960s. He was the officer in charge of optical instrumentation & filming ballistic missile tests launched from Vandenberg Air Force base. In 1964, they caught on film a UFO traveling right next to a missile. The film showed that a beam of light from the UFO was directed at the missile. His commanding officer told him never to speak of this again.
  Lt. Colonel Joe Wojtecki spent most of his time with Strategic Air Command & Tactical Air Command. He tells of a night in April of 1969 while stationed at Loring AFB in Maine when he & his flight instructor both saw three very bright lights in a perfect equilateral triangle silently moving across the sky. 

  James Kopf worked in communications on the USS JFK. He goes into detail about an incident in 1979 when all electronics onboard the aircraft carrier stopped functioning ... as a huge glowing UFO hovered above. He personally saw this UFO.
  Harry Allen Jordan  was a radar operator on the USS Roosevelt in the 1960s. He testifies that as a radar operator on the Roosevelt, he had a radar contact with a huge object above 65,000 feet traveling at about 1,000 knots.
  Michael Smith, an air traffic controller with the Air Force  describes his somewhat humorous sightings which he tracked on radar. He also confirms that personnel were expected to maintain secrecy concerning these events, & that NORAD was fully aware.
  Dr. Paul LaViolete articulates his own hyptheses on the propulsion systems of these vehicles & the history of electrogravitics.

  John Perkins on living in interesting times. 
  Chuck Baldwin, Restoring the Republic.  Chuck Baldwin ran on the Constitution Party's ticket for President in 2004.  He's eloquent and accurate on the true problems America faces as well on many solutions. 
  The Real Newt Gingrich.   In depth half hour documentary on why politicians are considered the lowest form of life on earth.
  The Clinton Chronicles.  Another slightly longer documentary on why polticians are the scum of the earth.  People who still trust the corporate media are a serious problem. 
  Thomas Paine was perhaps the most important of all the founders of the American Republic, yet few people have heard of him.  These documentaries explain various reasons for this.
  The first Is Melvyn Bragg's Radical Lives, we'd like to apologize for the hypocrite of in chief quoting him in the beginning, we hope no one loses their lunch.  

  The second is far more informative, although the narrator somewhat emotional.  Yet this is understandable when one delves into Paine's contributations and yet disgustingly harsh treatment from both French and American revolutionaries. 

It is everywhere, .... it is everything.  Humorous short, explaining quantum physics through the power of myth.
