Human Stories Documentaries

RTD’s human story documentaries show how individuals can overcome incredible hardships to achieve any dream with determination and willpower. From a one-legged man who learned to surf again, to an Afghan boy set on becoming the new Bruce Lee, these people inspire. You can see how a Spanish man built an entire cathedral with his own hands – despite everyone telling him he was crazy. Or meet an Old Russian Believer living deep in the Siberian taiga that can’t be swayed from following the ways of her 17th-century predecessors. So, if you’re in need of some courage, check out RTD’s human story documentaries.
