1. Ray Davies - Imaginary Man
Julien Temple is known as a beautifully inventive documentary-maker. Here his invention lay in just letting Britain's greatest - and maddest - songwriter speak for himself.
2. Birds Brittania
The name was a nod to the award-winning BBC4 strand of music documentaries. The programme was an entrancing social history of Britain told through its changing birdlife.
You won't get things like this when Rupert Murdoch runs the world, you know?
3. Frankie Boyle's Tramadol Nights
Made me laugh more than anything else this year. Big fan of Chomsky too. Can't be bad.
