The book is pretty good and there are a couple of documentaries on the subject, but not many. The two that I know of are pretty in-depth and aren't just snippets of a larger story penciled into a show about other things about prison escapes. They're full-length and not 7.5 minutes of a 38 minute show from the History Channel.

Its generally accepted that Charrière collected stories that he had heard while on the island and inserted himself in as the protagonist.
