my Dear Husband and I like to watch quality YouTube videos in the evening, particularly those that have a lot of episodes. Here are some examples, but we've seen all these and need new, but similar ideas:

Time Team - British Isles archeology
Bob Ross - painting scenic oils
Julian Baumgartner - art restoring
Tim Traveller - jaunts to odd places in Europe
Rick Steves - trips to Europe
Rudy Whatshisname (Rudy Maxa??? He's good.) - ditto
RV er TV - nice American guy details his trips across America
Sister Wendy - art history

No violence. No cute dogs and cats. No celebrities. No politics.

Any suggestions?

Hi, Leeneia - good thing to talk about. I "linkified" everything on your list, and I think I did a pretty good job.
I had trouble with what came up first on Sister Wendy, and the link I added to your post has a low-resolution video. But DiMarco Documentaries (click) has some high-resolution Sister Wendy videos that are really good. I bought a number of Sister Wendy videos, and some aren't very good resolution. The books are better.

Since, after all, Mudcat is a Music Website, I would like to promote these:

If you might like radio, as well as TV, and can access the BBC archive on Iplayer then there are several series by a guy called Melvyn Bragg which are real 'food for the brain'. The one I remember was called 'In Our Time'. These were half hour discussion programs. He chaired a panel who were experts on the chosen subject. Amazing programs on a wide ranging set of subjects from Philosophy, Arts and Science. There were other series as well. One I think was about language and on TV he had a series called 'The South Bank Show'. If you can find them you might like them.

Try a VPN that lets you link to BBC iPlayer. Lots of good travelogues, documentaries, arts programs and box sets on there. Likewise Channel 4 (At the moment!)

Have you seen the Transatlantic sessions?

Thanks for the ideas. I am checking them out. Keep em coming.

We have found some more Tim Travelers. We enjoy Tim, but we have to slow him down to understand him, and we turn on the captions so we can read along. Plus, he starts every video with an enthusiastic HELLO! which is so loud it hurts my ears. We go past that, then turn the audio on.

Yesterday we watched a video about a tunnel which a duke ordered dug so carriages could get to his castle. It was dug through a sandstone ridge. The only problem was that the slope is 1/12, and horses cannot pull a carriage up that.

Who knew? We marveled at all that effort for naught, for lack of such simple knowledge. Being geologists, we also studied the sandstone.

I watched a couple of TV series called Earth from Space, and Life of Earth from Space. I don't know if they are available on YouTube.

The second one is a history of life on Earth illustrated using space photos and videos. Some of the footage is from satellite surveillance from about 50 years ago compared with the same area today so it shows the changes over time.

If you are into renewable energy and Red Dwarf - then Fully Charged is an interesting docu-watch

Robert Llewellin played Kryten the robot in Red Dwarf. His asides are reminiscent of the robot. He makes it interesting, as much as informative. Particularly his rants on ABN (Almost Breaking News).
