The 50 Greatest Documentaries was a Channel 4 television programme which was broadcast on 9 October 2005 and was narrated by British actress, Zoë Wanamaker. The list was compiled based on the nominations submitted to Channel 4 by a series of factual filmmakers.

Films were ranked in a British public poll. That maybe explains some titles on this list.

Signs of the Times (1992) and An Impossible Job: Graham Taylor (1993) are missing from this list.
