A few weeks ago, I watched a doc titled:
The Bomb from 2015.

From Wikipedia:
The Bomb is a 2015 American documentary film about the history of nuclear weapons, from theoretical scientific considerations at the very beginning, to their first use on August 6, 1945, to their global political implications in the present day. The two-hour PBS film was written and directed by Rushmore DeNooyer, who noted the project took a year and a half to complete, since much of the film footage and images was only recently declassified by the United States Department of Defense. According to DeNooyer, “It wouldn’t take very many bombs to really change life on Earth, ... The idea that there are thousands of them sitting around is pretty scary. I don’t think people today realize that. They don’t think about it. I don’t think they are scared. But in a way, they should be. ”Mark Dawidziak, of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, summarized the film as follows: "The Bomb moves swiftly to cover Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the Cold War, the arms race, the Red Scare, the witch hunt, the Cuban Missile Crisis, test-ban treaties, the "Star Wars" initiative, the anti-nuke movement, the collapse of the Soviet Union and the rise of new nuclear threats." According to historian Richard Rhodes, “The invention [of 'The Bomb'] was a millennial change in human history: for the first time, we were now capable of our own destruction, as a species.”

This is a very informative documentary with many details that many may not be aware of.

As if The Bomb was not distressing enough, here comes a documentary about some survivors of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings titled
White Light/Black Rain: The Destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki is an HBO documentary film directed and produced by Steven Okazaki. It was released on August 6, 2007, on HBO, marking the 62nd anniversary of the first atomic bombing. The film features interviews with fourteen Japanese survivors and four Americans involved in the 1945 atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

This doc is eye opening and very sad. We hear and see, a number of survivors who tell us their personal accounts of those horrific events.

You must watch this!

I found “Rise of the Warrior Apes” really interesting, and slightly unnerving.

Also, “Searching for Sugar Man” is a great documentary about a lost musician.

@MarsRedSky nice, I found them both on youtube. Is this the kind of stuff you can listen to in the background? I see they're not free
I'll have to watch it. I loved microbiology in university, it was one of my favorite classes.
