Jaw-dropping docs and awe-inspiring nature series await… and that’s a fact

By Virgin TV Edit

Gone are the days when top-notch documentaries and glorious, so-good-you-wish-you-could-move-there and/or stroke-that-animal nature series remained tantalisingly out of reach… for Sky Documentaries (CH 277) and Sky Nature (CH 279) are here!


Launching into the telly-sphere on Wednesday 27 May, both are fit to bursting with factual programming that will have you regularly raising an eyebrow as one fascinating true story or amazing animal fact blows your mind and makes you go, “Huh… Maureen, did you know wombat poops are cube-shaped?”

From feature-length docs like Hillary – a stunning four-part series exploring Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential bid – or Ali & Cavett, the captivating, retrospective examination of Muhammad Ali’s legendary appearences on the Dick Cavett Show, Sky Documentaries presents the best documentary TV has to offer, covering all manner of topics.


Sky Nature, too, well and truly brings its nature series A-game to the frame, featuring breathtaking nature series exploring the planet’s history and the wider natural world, to Sky-commissioned series featuring the man, the myth, the Attenborough himself, Sir David Attenborough.


So whether its gritty documentaries about the Second World War or cute, wide-eyed geckos that get you going, Sky’s brand new duo of factual channels will definitely have you covered!
