BBC Documents Non-Recognized States

Way back in 2005, the BBC went to the Republic of China, Somaliland, South Ossetia and Abkhazia, Transnistria. and Nagorno-Karabakh and produced Places That Don't Exist. The documentary describes the politics and daily life in regions which are de facto independent but usually show up differently on maps. Though the offical website only has interviews and articles, the magic that is YouTube allows for the episodes, except for the Republic of China show, to be viewed. Enjoy!
