For me it is the world at war, I watched with my dad when it first aired in Australia and have watched it many times since. Apart from being an excellent documentory series for me it brings back a lot of memories of a young bloke with his dad watching it together.
Another was the SS, I saw it on SBS here in Australia about two years ago and have searched high and low for it on DVD ever since but to no avail. I think there were about 6 episodes in the series.
Nice to have those kinds of memories. I think 'World At War'
was probably the first lengthly documentary series. I too
remember watching it in the 1970's.........

Got to agree about all of them mentioned, the Mosquito doc was interesting especially as the Mosquito museum is just down the road to me, they have the original prototype there, its painted yellow, also they have the cockpit used in 633 squadron , the one that Cliff Robinson was sat in, i used to see a mosquito doing aerial manouvres near to Police Headquarters at Hatfield, watched it for ages on many days
'The World at War' is a timeless classic!
Also enjoyed 'Triumph of the Wills' , 'WW2 in Colour' and 'Nazis:A Warning from History'
