I have literally 100s of ww1 documentaries mostly taken from English and Australian TV, would I be breaking copyright laws if I wanted to sell ?.

The key is whether you recorded them on your DVD player or whether you bought them as DVDs. Under UK copyright law you can make recordings for your personal use, but can not sell those recordings - commonly known as pirate copies. You can sell a DVD that you bought.

In a similar way one can buy a painting or a photograph and sell them later. One can't make copies of them (if they are under copyright) and sell them. So, if one bought a DVD and then sold it, it is OK as one is not making a copy. In the same way one can buy and subsequently sell a book/painting/photos which are all under copyright.
