Hi Danielle,

There are a few different ways to tackle this depending on exactly where you saw the doco, but pretty much all the possibilities are on this page

https://www.lib.uts.edu.au/help/referencing/harvard-uts-referencing-guide/sound-film-and-image

If you saw the doco in the movies, use the film example

If you saw the doco on a catchup service, on live tv or on Netflix use the tv example

If you saw the doco on YouTube or something similar use the Youtube example. 

If none of that makes sense let me know :)

Hi David, 

In response, to your answer about referencing an online doc, how exactly would you reference it if it came from the internet and is interactive? i.e. how would you refernece an online interactive documentary from the internet- not a film, youtube or netdlix. Could you referenece it as a website? 

Thanks!

Yes indeed Margaret you would reference it as a website, much in the way you do a YouTube - a Youtube reference is essentially a website reference with a document type clause called 'video recording' put in after the title - you could use this template for your video
