    Default Bee documentaries

    I've seen what all Amazon and Netflix current has to offer on their streaming services (standards like: More Than Honey, Vanishing of the Bees, Queen of the Sun), but I was wondering if anyone around here knew of any others worth watching. Specific of the non-depressing variety. Colony Collapse Disorder is important to know about, bees are vanishing and we need more beekeepers - I get all of this - but I'd like to watch something in which that's not the main theme. It gets old honestly, regardless of importance.

    Michael palmers talk from the National honey show a few years ago is really good. he has a few other talks too about queen rearing and comb honey. or if you want a laugh and learn about cut-outs/removals look up JPthebeeman on youtube

    Good videos to learn about beekeeping aren't on Netflix or Amazon.
    Any and all of Michael Palmer's (a member here at BeeSource) talks are fantastic:
    Sustainable Apiary:

    Queen Rearing:

    Keeping bees in Frozen North America:

    Comb Honey:

    Another Sustainable Apiary Talk (newer than National Honey Show):

    Dean Stiglitz (our very own deknow) has some talks that I've found very informative in helping me wrap my head around bee genetics:

    Pretty much all of the National Honey Show talks are great, some more dry than others:
