What was the most recent documentary you watched on TV?

Hippies on The History Channel

Like, far out, man.

The War, of course. Didn't see all of it.

And if they count, recently saw specials about Carol Burnett (rerun) and Lucille Ball (rerun.)

I watched Hippies, too. I've seen it before. Pretty accurate description of both the good and the bad, although I did not agree with some of the asshole "expert" commentators on there.

Pretty much all of my core beliefs spring from hippie philosophy, for good or for ill. I was nodding my head through most of it, yeah, that's what I believe.

An additional thought: One thing I picked up this time watching was the division between hippies and politicos. Most hippies weren't really interested in political activism ala Abbie Hoffman until much later.

This made sense to me, thinking about it, since I have never been too interested in politics.

and, I watch LOTS of documentaries on the History Channel, Discover Channel, et al. all the time.

I keep watching the one about musicians from Athens, GA. on the documentary channel. I can't help it...If I see that it's on...I have to watch it...This has happened at least 3 and a half times over the past 4 months.
