What documentaries are you going to watch? I love this idea of "living by the numbers"!

Lisa said...

So far I've watched: The Persuaders and The Sisters of Selma.

I have a list I found from Britain that had many that I have had on my 'someday' list, so I'm choosing titles from that. There are others that I have in mind that aren't on this list, like When the Levees Broke, Trouble the Water, and Desert Bayou.

I love documentaries, but never seem to take the time to watch them. (that's why they're on the list ;) )
