    Do you prefer documentaries about tragic events, historical documentaries, biographies about celebrities, fascinated life destinies, accidents, animal or nature documentaries, science documentaries, space/universe, crime documentaries, documentaries about music, series or movies etc etc ?

    It depends on the topic (what part of history, what celebrity, what kind of music etc)

    I like most of the genres you mentioned, but I mostly like crime docs (for some reason especially ones set in the 70's and 80's). I like to see real people recount their version of events. I also like biographies of famous people or bands, and also about the making of iconic movies and/or albums. I watch a lot of nature documentaries too.

    I'd say these genres tend to catch my interest most often. I also enjoy documentaries about pop culture topics (for example, one that I watched recently on Studio 54) which can fall into most of those categories I quoted above, I suppose.

    Great question - I love anything true life and documentaries are a must for me. I love anything about serial killers or true life mysteries. Also world tragedies and disasters. All joyful stuff.

    Naturally. I love animals, but I would not watch a documentary about snakes or crocodiles.

    I really like biographical documentaries, not necessarily of celebrities but anyone who had an interesting life or achieved something of note.

    The documentary called Marley (2012), which told the life story of Bob Marley is one of my favourites because they had great access to those close to him who were very open and honest about the man, they were able to use some rarely seen video footage, he had a fascinating life and they illustrated it with a soundtrack made of his music.

    I love mostly all documentaries, specifically crime. However, I tend to prefer ones about murders that occurred years before and remain unsolved.
