Hi,
I have downloaded quite a lot of documentaries as part of a television programme etc (history, nature etc). As of now i have them coded as programmes with seasons and episodes.
However, this is not satisfactory.
1. I can hardly find any information on the programmes themselves.
2. I am not so much interested in the programme but rather in the single episode and would like to know what this is about (Stonehenge or WWI or dinosaurs?) but I cannot tag episodes or download any fanart.
How do you deal with documentaries.
Do you pretend them all to be single movies?
which documentaries? https://thetvdb.com/?string=documentarie...ion=Search may help with naming and sorting if on any of those lists. I've had to manually do so in the past.
Hi and thanks,
this is just what I needed but as far as I can see thetvdb.com features only American documentaries. Most of my docus are German...

Correction: a lot of documentaries are there but hardly providing any information.
Besides I still am not sure how to actually select content for watching, e.g. if i want to watch some documentary on, say, Alaska I am not wondering whether it's gonna be the an NBC or Sky documentary...
Besides I am finding it hard to have them included with programmes like, say, Fawlty Towers. I wish I could separate documentaries from this kind of series.
