Over the years there have been many great docs about various Historical topics, mostly released on vhs/dvd. Timewatch stands out for me- great episodes from the early 90's until today.

Two oddly unreleased series, considering their pedigree, are the epic Secrets of the Dead series and Michael Wood's first TV series, In Search of the Dark Ages.

SOE (Special Operations Executive) was a great series about the wartime agents, commandos and assassins tasked by Churchill to set nazi-occupied Europe ablaze.

One other hard-to-trace documentary series, the name escapes me, was about the British Bomb Disposals during WW2, who mostly died after the war clearing British beaches- and received no campaign medal!
