Erratum: The graph on ‘Top 3 European countries for number of documentary films produced’ on page 13 was corrected on 23.03.2023 showing that the top 3 countries for number of documentary films produced (2021) are: 

1) Spain - 133 films (131 in 2019);

2) Italy - 121 films (120 in 2019);

3) Switzerland - 71 films (63 in 2019). 

The corrected graph looks like this:
