Documentaries are made up of real life footage and reconstructions of events and/or situations. This is done to contrast and question what the interviewee is saying. They also include narration to anchor meaning, however most of the time the narrator is not seen. “What distinguishes a documentary is the portrayal of sound and images of actuality.” (John Corner 1995)  Documentaries can be based on the following; political, historical, social, cultural and religious issues. All documentaries have to be based on fact, however real evidence is sometimes unavailable so we use reconstructions of past events to demonstrate what happened these reconstructions don‟t have to contain analysis some do, however some don‟t.
