Welcome to Good Doc List! Documentaries have the power to change the world.

If the world watched more documentaries, the world would probably be a better place.

What better way to learn about the world than to watch real footage and interviews from people in important moments and places in time?

Documentaries are amazing tools for education and gaining new perspective. These docs will challenge beliefs, raise questions, and help people think about the world differently.

People in high school, elementary school, middle school, and college can all gain better perspective on history and science classes with documentaries. People can listen to documentaries at work or during a commute.

This site has all kinds of docs. You can find documentaries for kids, documentaries about science, human health, social issues, bio-pics, and more. Documentaries are sorted by tags and categories to help you browse.

Most of the documentaries on this site are available to watch on YouTube, Netflix, or Amazon Prime. Just search for a subject matter or click on one of the topics from the links above to find a good list for you.

If you would like to recommend a documentary to me or suggest I add your documentary to my site, contact me and I’ll get to it as fast as I can.

Plus, you can rate any doc after you watch it to let me know how you feel about it after watching.
