I'm incredibly fond of the BBC's "Storyville" documentaries. They're only, to my knowledge, broadcast on BBC Four. The documentary on Heinrich Himmler being the most interesting; not just due to the content but the way it was presented as readings from his private letters. It quite capably explains the state of mind of the german population at the time and just how a body with such strong discriminatory views came into power. The more recent one documenting the rise and fall of the mexican anti-cartel vigilante millitia was equally worth a watch.
I think some of these are available on iPlayer though I'm not quite sure how the older broadcasts could be accessed.

I couldn't find a YT link due to copyright strikes but, All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace is pretty good. It is about the impact that Computers and networks have had on society, culture, economics and science. It should be easy to find on most torrent sites and the like. It's really quite surprising just how far the influence reaches, changing society in such drastic yet unseen ways.

On a somewhat more lighthearted note, my sociology professor in my freshman year of college showed us a rather interesting web-documentary called "Everything is a Remix"; basically an examination of the concept of originality, with a discussion on copyright and IP law towards the latter half.

Since Vimeo embeds don't work, here's a link.

Ken Burns makes pretty good documentaries from what I've seen.  I really liked The Roosevelts and The Civil. There's also a Vice documentary from a few years back about going on a tourist trip in North Korea which was also a good watch.

I really love BBCs nature documentaries, like BBC eart. You can find it on netflix, it's pretty good.
