how to write a script for a documentary?

Question: Do you have any examples of documentary scripts such as the documentaries on the series i-Witness in the Philippines?

Answer: You would need to contact i-Witness for access to their scripts. My guess is that they will not make the time to send you the scripts. So what I would recommend if you wanted to study the script of a documentary you like, is to watch the documentary and write down everything you see and hear. I have posted part of a script of one of my documentaries on this page if you want to see a script sample and learn more about writing documentary scripts:
