We watched "The Sketches of Frank Ghery" last week. Not bad, but not great (IMO). I heard nothing but great things about it, but I thought it was just okay. I love his architecture, but the documentary didn't focus on engineering his designs hardly at all.
radioheads meeting people is easy is very very good.
i also saw something about the american taxidermists competition or something that was surprisingly interesting.
UKTVhistory is showing Planet Earth and Blue Planet constantly at the moment too and our household are all loving that.
It's entertaining....and sad as someone else mentioned. Somehow, Ulrich comes off as the sane one. Hetfield should forget the therapy and just give all his money away. Newsted....took the money and ran...good move since the bass hasn't been audible on any record since Cliff B.

One of my favorites is Marjoe. Just got it on DVD to replace my lost VHS version. It won the oscar for best doco in 1972 I believe. It's about this travelling revival preacher who was a child preacher pimped out by his parents. In this documentary he invites a film crew to confess all the chicanery involved in his proffession so he can't go back.
If you watch a lot of crappy movies, you'll recognize the guy as he's in a lot of top notch trash (Starcrash, Viva Knieval, Pray for the Wildcats, and Mausoleum) as he turned the success of this documentary into a haphazard film career.
It's awesome, but don't be fooled and think the documentary team's follow up film, Gizmo, is any good.
