The three most popular theories for distinguishing documentaries from audiovisual works of fiction are those of Carl Plantinga, Gregory Currie, and Noël Carroll. Yet all three theories fail to provide a basis for excluding live sports broadcasts (LSBs), such as televised football games, from the documentary category. Since LSBs are widely considered to not be documentaries, a correction is needed. Henry John Pratt proposes excluding LSBs from the documentary category using an additional criterion: documentaries must be accounts. I criticize his proposal and defend an alternate method of excluding LSBs from the documentary category by proposing instead that documentaries must not be live productions.
