    I was hoping you guys could help me out. I'm looking for documentaries on beekeeping. There are quite a few bee documentaries out there, but most deal with colony collapse and I was looking for more of a general documentary.

    Thanks guys!

    I always liked the Dr. Kieth Delaplane's Series on begining beekeeping that aired on RFD tv a few years ago. While it didnt go into great detail it did cover the basics. Not sure if the series is available online or not.

    Many of the universities have some very good ones. PA is the first one to come to mind for some reason.

    These really are some of the Delaplane videos.....

    As the honey flow feeds a rapidly growing hive, you need to keep up on its progress.

    Search youtube for _A year in the life of an apiary_, or something close to that, for the Delaplane videos. They took the twelve part series and cut it up in short snips for youtube. :)
