8. Last Exit: Space

Werner Herzog explores the future of humanity in space. It seeks one of the most interesting questions of humanity in the 21st Century: When can space be colonized?

9. A Haunting

Again, we cannot resist the urge of the paranormal. Something about the “unknown”, the “unanswered” attracts us. It is a paranormal anthology that re-enacts true stories narrated by the victims.

10. How Do They Do It?

Have you ever thought about how the objects, that we cannot imagine our lives without, are made? This documentary series answers the question you never asked. It goes to factories where “things” are made and documents the entire process.

11. How the Universe Works

Another documentary about space, rather the universe. It might not interest some people, but it fascinates me. We don’t realise just how much goes on outside the earth. If we did, we probably would have been more grateful for what we already have, and not wage wars, and accumulate private properties to become richer while others are plunged into the depths of poverty.

12. India 2050

This documentary is an eye-opener. Every documentary is in some way or the other. India 2050 takes a look into the future of India specifically if we continue living the way we are living.

13. History Of The World.

If Yuval Noah Harari’s Sapiens was a documentary, this would probably be it. It re-enacts the history of humankind from the beginning of civilization till now.

14. Cost of War

It’s almost one month since Putin declared war against Ukraine. It is high time that we understand the cost of war. Both human and monetary.

15. Planet Earth I and II

A highly acclaimed series about, the plane: Earth. It is narrated by David Attenborough. Planet Earth I and II takes breathtaking images of some of the most awe-inspiring natural wonders around the world. This is truly one of the best documentaries on Discovery Plus.
