    Did anyone ever watch "In Search Of" with Leonard Nimoy. I loved that show.<br><br>I want to see a documentary about hunting with slingshots. <br><br>Maybe a show about people riding on ATV/horse/Jeeps and shooting at antelope/deer/flocks of birds.

    I can´t name a specific documentary. But what you definitely should do is take a search in youtube. I would search on combinations like [documentary + BBC] since there are a also some nonsense docu's. And I actually like ALL the documentaries from the BBC.<br><br>I personally was suprised to see how many are hour-long fully uploaded. I suppose it's illegal but, you can see that some of them are there already for years, and for some reason youtube does not delete them. I like to keep them running on my second monitor, while beeing busy on the other in the evening.
