Stream all Documentary Movies on BBC iPlayer


Refresh your knowledge, get informed or just enjoy great nature visuals. Documentaries let you participate in a world beyond your own reach. Naturalists take you into the rainforest or share the beauty of the underwater world. You'll learn how a seed struggles to reach the light of day or how a baby polar bear is born.

History is dry and boring? Certainly not when it becomes visible in documentaries and they convey in an authentic way what happened in the past and determines the present. A picture is worth a thousand words, which is why the content of documentaries is remembered more intensively. Whether for school lessons, out of pure curiosity or to bring the world into your living room - documentaries open up the connections of the world and life to you in an impressive way.
