I am an American who has just finished watching the Up series on Netflix, and I am wondering if there are any articles or books worth reading about the series. I would be interested in anything, but I'm particularly interested in anything that fleshes out the stories of these people's lives and also anything concerning how the series changed the lives of those portrayed (are they celebrities in the UK? etc.)

I am looking for the title of a documentary on the concept of time that I think was produced for the Discovery Channel in the mid 90s. It was rather bland, but I still want to see it again. It wasn't about time travel or anything flashy, it was just about the concept of time.
Can anyone point help me out with a title or a place where I can purchase it?

I'm after a documentary I once saw about a self-building housing co-operative in the UK—or more information about the programmes. [more inside]

Louis Theroux's documentaries - both the sillier earlier ones and the recent more solemn ones - are perhaps my very favourite things to watch. What other documentaries / shows might I enjoy?

What was the name of this BBC documentary? It was broadcast sometime around 2000. It was about how Britain has changed post-WWII, dwelling on rail closures due to the Beeching Axe
, the construction of the motorways, and the subsequent death of the 'traditional' rural Britain. Its tone was pretty melancholic, and it was (to me) quite a moving piece. [more inside]
