Historical Documentary General Historian 03/05/2020 (Thu) 01:47:31 No. 97
This will be a thread for posting and sharing Documentaries about history as a whole. I was sitting around watching Step back and I realized it has been a while since I have seen any of those old BBC like documentaries about historical figures. Doesn't have to be older though. If you have any Youtube links or torrents to look up post them here. Thanks anons.
>>98 What documentaries are these Anon? Ideally I'd like to torrent them.
>>97 If anyone know of any good docs on the Russian Revolution, that would be much appreciated.
Here's a great doumentary series about the Cultural Revolution in China, 'How Yukong Moved the Mountains': https://invidio.us/playlist?list=PLMt0ncvnKoz3ar_f78qBeA29-0kwrsXvT
>>101 Also, here's a good couple of documentaries about the Chinese Revolution from beginning to the Communist's victory to Deng's counter-revolution, 'China A Century of Revolution' 1911 - 1949: https://invidio.us/watch?v=I5cl0GjPjy4 1949 - 1976': https://invidio.us/watch?v=I5cl0GjPjy4
Here's one on the last gasps of Britain's organized labour movements in the 1980's, specifically the battle between the state police and local miners in Orgreave: https://invidio.us/watch?v=dn7DZSagDI4
>>99 It is a documentary made for the 40th anniversary of the Peoples Socialist Republic of Albania split into 3 .mp4 files https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NHBR8aJPkU4
Anybody got any good documentaries for showing what life was like in the USSR?
https://www.smithsonianchannel.com/shows/america-in-color/1004516 Not sure if this counts as an proper documentary
>>97 Here's a playlist for a good docudrama series about the war on the eastern front, russian-produced originally and dubbed to english. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLY-Fb3vVQUeqi7Uye-vJ_r7TO8PZFDAfr the soundtrack especially kicks ass and its mostly focused on just recreating what happened in each battle that's covered, the important people that participated and what equipment was used.
Not really an official proper documentary but this guy called Drachinifel(no not the original baddy from Warhammer Fantasy) does a lot of good documentary style videos on naval history stuff. I like it cause I'm a dumb naval history nerd. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4mftUX7apmV1vsVXZh7RTw Otherwise there's that BBC documentary on the breakup of Yugoslavia which manages to not be utter shit. And most Oliver Stone shit, I mean he's a liberal but it's good to watch his stuff usually boil down to "US bad".
>>108 Damn that's weird I just started watching this guy a week ago. If you only watch one video, this one is hilarious even if you're not a naval autism guy https://youtu.be/9Mdi_Fh9_Ag
