Credible (peer reviewed) documentaries are a new genre
of information, with a clear narrative which shows all
facts, raises all the questions, and brings all the
about a topic.
No sound effects, unless they are an attempt at
reconstructing the actual sounds. And if so, are
marked as such.
No illustration images or illustration videos.
Full footage shown or links to the raw footage.
Any anomalies in the sound or video should be accounted
All theories should be dealt with, nothing eliminated.
It will be a genre that truthers and conspiracy theorists
won't like, but debunkers will crave. Extremely boring
for everyone else.
Like wiki sites, new parts can be inserted into the video,
as new facts are learned or new questions are raised.

||//All theories should be dealt with//
||Ah, this is where it falls down.
||You'll have to select from a limitless space of possible theories - and, as soon as you have framed the discussion by making such a selection, you have already fallen into bias.
||Thucydides had a good go at this, but even he couldn't attain the kind of perfection you're casually stipulating here.
||//All theories should be dealt with, nothing eliminated.//
||Change that to 'all hypotheses,' and you'd have more credibility. But of course, conspiracy theorists, (should be called conspiracy hypothesists), suffer from the same failings as set theory in that you cannot create a set containing all sets, because they'll always default to 'oh, that's just what 'they' want you to think.'
