Looking for quality documentaries (and/or books) about ants and other colony insects.

When I was young my absolute favourite kind of nature documentary was anything involving ants. I was (and am) fascinated by the complexity of their societies and the way the interact with one another and the outside world.
enjoyed the "Supersocieties" episode of Life in the Undergrowth
, it kind of resparked my interest.
So I'm looking for other recommendations for good ant docs. I've googled around but it's difficult to separate the quality. My general preference in nature documentaries would be ones that don't involve people too much. I'm not looking to see the presenter superimposed into an ant tunnel.
Bees and termites and other colony insects are also of interest.
Book suggestions are also good!
