The documentary selection in our library is decent, but I often find myself looking online for educational videos and feature-films to show my students. Unfortunately, most online documentaries require you to download the full film and have some sort of torrenting software.
So, to make the search easier, I’ve compiled a list of 10 places to find documentary videos online with free streaming:
- Documentary Wire
