PBS Nova's Documentaries. All of them.

I enjoyed The Planet Earth series 1-11.

I heard Oprah recommends that all families should watch this documentary to appreciate the beauty of our planet and learn to take good care of it.
Think that others maybe better than you.

Nice list! I for one loved Apocalypse: WII. It's a pretty daunting documentary on why we need to stop Wars

Adding my recommendations:
National Geographic: Situation Critical <-- specially the SAS Jungle Rescue
National Geographic: Seconds from Disaster
Discovery Channel: Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe

cool!
most of these are worth having & keeping
the thing about docu film is that you won't really get that bored even if you watched it again.
