I'm looking to learn more about any and all countries and their people, through documentaries. In both TV and longform formats (i.e. movies) I'd prefer non-fiction to fiction. Stuff like Bizarre Foods is interesting to me, but I want more depth and length. And less, "ewww weird foreign food"! I've watch Parts Unknown and No Reservations and have liked those too.

Things that push my comfort zone and expose me to new ideas are good. I'm American. There've been other questions like this but they're old. It would be cool if there was focus on specific cultures and daily life.

Bonus question: favorite books about countries (not travel guides) in this vein.
