I think the sitemap page is a lot easier interface to use than having to mouse-over every category. And it's ctrl-f searchable. And the movie plays in fullscreen.

Sweet. Thanks for the link.

This is quite great - many thanks!

Remember, you can directly download .avi files of anything posted on Google Video simply by downloading the .gvp file, opening it up in a text editor, and locating the direct URL to the .avi download.

I've pulled down about 5 gigabytes from Google this week alone.

If you like this site, check out Smashing Telly - not all documentaries, but focuses on shows that inform and are interesting.

Best of the Web! (if you skip the one about the Lizards and the Jews). Great find.

Crap, the useful output of the web is finally overtaking my total free time.

Neither the Milgram nor the Zimbardo films will load for me.
damn.
I've wanted to see the Milgram one for years.
(whimper)

The others look great, though.
thanks for this!

This is great. Thanks mblue.

A minor disappointment....unfortunately, the Rickson Gracie "Choke" documentary cuts off shortly after he's introduced at the vale tudo tournament. I invested almost an hour to discover this.

Cool! The Hoover and Boulder Dam ones (same Dam, different names) is done by my employer, the US Department of the Interior. GO BUREAUCRACY!!!!!!!!!!!

OK, I have had time to watch a couple of the videos, and to browse through the some others. I have 2 words for the poster:

Damn.
You.

I'll have to quit my job.

I highly recommend Prisoners of Katrina, which I screened the other night.

Part of BBC's This World series, it's a heartbreaking story of the plight of some of the most ignored victims of the disaster. It's right up there with Spike Lee's When the Levees Broke for incisive takes on Katrina.
