Top 10 documentaries / streams to watch during Lockdown

?>

With these uncertain times that we are in,  I have compiled my top ten favourite documentaries /streams to watch whilst in lockdown. Most likely this lockdown is likely to continue for at least another month or so in the UK.

These are what I have been watching and might be of interest to some people, mainly music, business and photography. Also, you should check out the live streaming services from Adobe which are free, they consist of tutorials plus analysing the current situation (Monday to Friday). You will never have this amount of time available, so use it to learn new skills.
