A guy from monty python that talks about the history of regular folk.
Terry Jones hosts The Story of 1
About the history of the number one. I PROMISE... this is so much more interesting than it sounds. I watch a lot of shows half-interested, but I put down my computer and was totally spellbound.
Turtles Can Fly
About some kids in Iraq... I enjoyed it because it's non-political and just follows some orphaned kids and the story of what happens to them.
