Killing Hitler,
 
 
This program documents the incredible story of the closest anyone ever came to assassinating Hitler and overthrowing his government. The basis for the feature film Valkyrie, the historical plot was masterminded by German Colonel Claus von Stauffenburg with a group of other brave military and government insiders. Using Hitler's own contingency plan, the Resistance were able to orchestrate a plan in which they could kill Hitler, and convince the Reserve army to unknowingly fight for their cause. The Resistance knew that certain death awaited them if they were caught, but for these heroic men, the chance to change history was well worth the risk.

A mysterious map marked 'area of high resistance' leads military collector and amateur historian Gary Sterne to an empty farming field not far from Omaha and Utah beaches. But there's nothing there - that is until Gary begins to dig and explore. Now, nearly seven decades after D Day, a massive Nazi artillery base, the size of four football fields, poses hard questions for WWII experts. Why did the Germans build this particular base is such secrecy? How did it continue to fire for three terrible days after the initial beach landings? And most importantly; why was it buried and lost to history? Was it perhaps meant to be forgotten?

The arrival of George Bush Sr in power allowed the agency to find a fresh target: Iraq. The first Gulf War saw major involvement by the CIA, but President Clinton lost interest in this secret service, spelling a difficult period for the agency, which came into conflict with the FBI and was unable to predict the attacks on the World Trade Centre and the rise of Islamic terrorism. The series closes with the shady dealings of the administration of George W Bush, with Frank Carlucci, Dick Cheney, and the Carlyle and Hallybury groups. Once again, it was the economic interests of a handful of private companies that dictated US foreign policy.

Don Wildman takes a look back at the series. Whether it's the ill-fated Apollo 13 space mission, the discovery of a mysterious stone giant, or one of the most perplexing shipwrecks in US history, these are among the most unforgettable stories found in America's museums. Behind each artefact is yet another story to be told and secrets to be revealed - often tales brimming with scandal, mystery, murder, and intrigue. Whether a diary from an arctic exploration, a stone giant thought to be the remnant of a race of enormous people, or a futuristic house that almost changed the world, the iconic items within their walls all have something to tell us about who we are and what we've become. Each episode of this series will take viewers on a captivating, revealing, and at times shocking tour of America's past, revisiting its most crucial events by re-examining what has been left behind. The series tackles some of history's most enduring mysteries - tales that viewers will be intimately familiar with - and little-known episodes that have never been told before on television.

Native American tribes all over the United States have legends of Bigfoot that are both fascinating and terrifying.

How do these legends correspond with ancient cave drawings that seem to depict giant, hairy beasts? Why do Native American totem poles and legends share many common attributes? And was this a real creature that developed in Southeast Asia, and eventually made its way to North America, and even Europe?

This documentary explores how Adolf Hitler's wartime strategists planned to launch attacks on the USA. The most daring of these plans involved German fighter planes crashing into Manhattan's skyscrapers as living bombs in an attempt to psychologically destabilise the American superpower. Aware of skyscrapers' enormous symbolic significance, Hitler was convinced that suicide bombing would have a devastating impact on American morale. With this plan, the Nazi regime hoped to turn the tide of the war. Contemporary witnesses, archive material and original plans show how this deadly fantasy and its monstrous product, the 'Amerika Bomber', became a collective and indiscriminate desire for destruction.In 1937, Hitler was preparing for what became the Second World War by exploring possible tactics. In Augsburg at the huge aircraft factory, Hitler was shown around by owner Willy Messerschmitt, who revealed to the Fuhrer plans for new aircraft, including a mock-up of a huge long-range bomber with the potential to attack America.

This engrossing series presents seminal events in a radical new way: not looking back with hindsight, but as they were covered by national and local news broadcasts at the time. This footage, much of which has not been seen for decades, gives an intimacy and immediacy to stories we thought we knew. Six new episodes cover events from the 1960s and 1970s, including the assassination of Malcom X, the Tet Offensive, the Apollo 13 mission and the Tornado Super Outbreak of 1974. We also rediscover the Impeachment of Bill Clinton from 1994 and the DC Sniper attacks from October 2002.

Examines the controversial theory that the monster known as Bigfoot may have existed in history. Native American tribes all over the United States have legends of Bigfoot that are both fascinating and terrifying. Oral traditions describe creatures that actively hunted people, especially children. Some believe these killings were happening into the 1800's. How do these legends correspond with ancient cave drawings that seem to depict giant, hairy beasts? Why do Native American totem poles and legends share many common attributes? And was this a real creature that developed in Southeast Asia, and eventually made its way to North America, and even Europe?

On March 8, 2014, the 777 Boeing from Malaysian Airlines on its way to Beijing, from Kuala Lumpur, suddenly vanishes from the control systems, while the aircraft is flying over the China Sea. Five years after the disappearance of MH370, nobody knows what happened on that day, nobody knows the fate of the 239 passengers and crews on board. In the 21st century, with all the technology and tracking systems available, with hundreds of radars in orbit above our heads monitoring our every moves how is it possible to see a 270 tonnes aircraft vanish with no traces? At the time, 26 countries participated to the search efforts in order to find clues and plausible explanations to the mystery. But even today, nothing has been found to reply to all the unanswered questions and people from around the world are still wondering what really happened on that day. In order to better grasp and understand all the different hypothesis, from the most serious to the most speculative, this film goes back to the official investigation and outlines the numerous inconsistencies surrounding the case since the beginning. And many can come to a conclusion: have we been lied to?

Protected by a series of bloody and heroic rear-guard actions to slow down the German advance, thousands of soldiers embarked on a forced march over the mountains of central Crete to meet Royal Navy ships which would take them hundred of kilometres across the Mediterranean to Alexandria in Egypt.This was a mini Dunkirk but many didn't make it. Thousands were left on the beaches as the last ship left. Hundreds made their own way to Africa by whatever means including small boats or else headed for the hills where they hid out for months even years living in caves or protected by Cretan families. More than 10,000 Allied soldiers were taken Prisoners of War.

Britain. 3000 BC. Out of a violent, divided nation of early farmers a surprising new society is born. Unified and organized to such an extent that they can harness the expertise and drive to build the world's greatest and most mysterious monument. Stonehenge. When the society disappears, it transforms into a new culture founded on metal and personal wealth. However, the builders leave something more than the mammoth monument behind. They leave their bodies, buried in the earth. Leading Stonehenge expert, Professor Mike Parker Pearson, opens his ground-breaking discoveries to us so we can tell the story of Stonehenge in a unique way. It has always been shrouded in magic and secrets, but now, for the first time we will meet the people who worshipped, celebrated, lived and died in the shadow of Stonehenge. In the process, we trace the dramatic rise and fall of one of the greatest prehistoric societies in the world. This genuinely new narrative is based on the latest research conducted into the cremated and buried people at the site. The stones have mesmerized humans for hundreds of generations. Now we will meet the makers.

In December 1942, 12 young marines raid the port of Bordeaux in Nazi-occupied France. To reach their target, the men use so-called 'Cockleshell' canoes, specially designed for covert infiltration into enemy harbours. They succeed in blowing up one ship and severely damaging four others and, according to Winston Churchill, shortened World War II by six months. But at the same time a network of British trained spies were already in Bordeaux, preparing to strike the same target. In this documentary, former member of the Special Boat Service turned politician Lord Ashdown discovers a tale of political and military rivalry that put men's lives at risk.

Explore how the Silk Road influenced conflict, from cavalry warfare to gunpowder. Two-thousand years ago, when the Roman Empire seemed unstoppable, the Battle of Carrhae saw one of Rome's worst military defeats when the Parthians used cavalry tactics to their advantage. The style of cavalry warfare developed by Central Asian horse archers would later dominate warfare, made possible by several innovations; the recurved composite bow, socketed bronze arrowheads and a psychological shift towards cohesive groups of soldiers under military command. It was also around this time that the Roman Empire began to covet Chinese silk. Long distance trade between the peoples of Eurasia was nothing new; for thousands of years, similar relations had been impacting societies.

The armies of the Third Reich invaded the USSR on June 22, 1941. Mobile commandos, the Einsatzgruppen, were following their advance to Stalingrad with the mission of eliminating all Jews on the conquered territories. Between June 1941 and the end of 1943, they shot to death close to two million Jews - men, women and children - from the Baltic countries to the Black Sea. Michale Prazan also director of 'The Nanjing Massacre', selected for the Chicago Documentary Film Festival showcases this first, unknown phase of the Shoah. We retrace, chronologically, the mechanisms that will drive the Nazis to conduct these meticulous mass murders - the foundations of the industrial extermination of European Jews in the death camps. This documentary reveals why this 'Shoah by bullets', the traumas of which were carefully erased by the commandos as they progressed on their march, remains to this day a forgotten episode in our history. Relying on archival footage filmed by the Nazi propaganda machine in the Baltic countries and in Belarus, Ukraine and Romania, on the memories of witnesses of these public executions, on the words of survivors and also, for the first time, on the confessions of the executioners that were found in Germany.

The style of cavalry warfare developed by Central Asian horse archers would later dominate warfare, made possible by several innovations; the recurved composite bow, socketed bronze arrowheads and a psychological shift towards cohesive groups of soldiers under military command. It was also around this time that the Roman Empire began to covet Chinese silk. Long distance trade between the peoples of Eurasia was nothing new; for thousands of years, similar relations had been impacting societies.

The armies of the Third Reich invaded the USSR on June 22, 1941. Mobile commandos, the Einsatzgruppen, were following their advance to Stalingrad with the mission of eliminating all Jews on the conquered territories. Between June 1941 and the end of 1943, they shot to death close to two million Jews - men, women and children - from the Baltic countries to the Black Sea. Michale Prazan also director of 'The Nanjing Massacre', selected for the Chicago Documentary Film Festival showcases this first, unknown phase of the Shoah. We retrace, chronologically, the mechanisms that will drive the Nazis to conduct these meticulous mass murders - the foundations of the industrial extermination of European Jews in the death camps. This documentary reveals why this 'Shoah by bullets', the traumas of which were carefully erased by the commandos as they progressed on their march, remains to this day a forgotten episode in our history. Relying on archival footage filmed by the Nazi propaganda machine in the Baltic countries and in Belarus, Ukraine and Romania, on the memories of witnesses of these public executions, on the words of survivors and also, for the first time, on the confessions of the executioners that were found in Germany.

Were the pills in this bottle the true cause of the sudden death of one of Hollywood's most beloved starlets? A lottery ticket inscribed with the numbers 6-6-6 at the Pennsylvania State Police Museum was at the heart of a sinister plot to rig the state lottery drawing. The plot's masterminds almost walked away with millions - so how did they do it? The Center for Disease Control Museum houses what appears to be a common cardboard box. What did this ordinary item have to do with a wave of fear and panic that swept the nation in 2001?

In December 1942, 12 young marines raid the port of Bordeaux in Nazi-occupied France. To reach their target, the men use so-called 'Cockleshell' canoes, specially designed for covert infiltration into enemy harbours. They succeed in blowing up one ship and severely damaging four others and, according to Winston Churchill, shortened World War II by six months. But at the same time a network of British trained spies were already in Bordeaux, preparing to strike the same target. In this documentary, former member of the Special Boat Service turned politician Lord Ashdown discovers a tale of political and military rivalry that put men's lives at risk.

The resulting German and Italian occupation of Crete was marred by massacres on both sides of both German soldiers and Greek partisans and civilians. More than 8,000 Cretans lost their lives in the resistance. When 20,000 Italians surrendered in 1943 they were made POWs too but almost a third drowned at sea after German merchant ships carrying them to the mainland were torpedoed by British submarines. These forgotten tragedies constituted one of the world's biggest maritime disasters. In all more than 20,000 people from all sides lost their lives in the Cretan conflict. The British intelligence service, known as the SOE, assisted what became one of the most successful resistance movements of the war. It helped rescue Allied soldiers who had been abandoned on the island and involved agents such as archaeologist John Pendulbury, known as 'the Cretan Lawrence' and writer and adventurer Patrick Leigh Fermor who staged the famous kidnap of the German commander of Crete with William Moss. Crete was one of the last places surrendered by the Nazis right at the end of the war. German soldiers had to be escorted off the island by the British for fear of reprisals. Two German commanders on the island were executed by firing squad for war crimes. It took more than 30 years before the 4,000 German dead were properly buried on the island. They were stored in a monastery as claims for reparations dragged on. They have still not been settled today.

Following the devastating attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, public shock quickly turned to outrage. The attack had left 2403 Americans dead. How had the Navy been caught off-guard? Someone must be to blame - and a culprit was soon found. This program investigates how the Washington military and President Roosevelt's administration found a scapegoat in Admiral Husband Kimmel, the commander of the Pacific fleet. Kimmel's career was brutally destroyed in a desperate attempt to cover up intelligence blunders and a catalogue of errors. Kimmel's family continue to protest his innocence. Interviews with intelligence experts, ex-US admirals and leading historians - and uncovered documents - shine fresh light on the Pearl Harbor tragedy. As Kimmel's family fight to have his rank restored, this is the story of a man willing to sacrifice himself for his country, only to be sacrificed himself.

Where and when does the history of Europe begin? The traces lead to ancient Greece, more precisely to Crete: Here we not only found the first high culture of the continent, but also the founding myth, to which it owes its name: The story of the kidnapping of the Phoenician princess Europa by the Greek god father Zeus. Then all roads lead to Rome: the Roman Empire spreads European civilization - and becomes a great role model for many peoples in Europe.

Tanks were the first armoured fighting machine to be used on the battlefield. These "land ships", as they were first called, were championed by Head of the British Admiralty Winston Churchill. Adapted from an American tractor with caterpillar tracks, the machine was designed in secrecy to break through the heavily fortified trenches and offer protection for troops that were being mowed down by heavy artillery. Though a massive failure in their first combat in the Battle of the Somme - they broke down and got stuck in the mud -British government propaganda reversed the story and paved the way for thousands of tanks to be built and become a decisive weapon in the war.

In 1965, the United States officially became involved in the conflict in South East Asia, where decades of turmoil had been building since the beginning of World War II. The fall of French Indochina and the spread of Communism catapulted the country into one of its longest and deadliest wars. Featuring personal stories from veterans and detailing the battles, strategy, and politics of a war that consumed multiple US presidents, this program is a chronicle of the tragedy that tested the strength of America and forever changed the social and political landscape of the world. French colonies in Indochina fell to the Imperial Japanese after Nazi Germany occupied France during World War II. After the Japanese were defeated, the power vacuum left in the Indochina region set the stage for a major conflict. More Info >

In November 1942, British SOE (Special Operations Executive) agents and Greek resistance fighters (andartes) attacked the Gorgopotamos railway bridge in the heart of Greece, where up to 50 trains crossed daily en route to the Port of Piraeus to supply Rommel in North Africa. While andartes battled Italian forces defending the bridge, the SOE laid explosives under the bridge. Computer graphics and dramatic recreations reveal the enormous explosion and devastation the successful Allied raid caused.

Could a cache of fantastic riches have been buried centuries ago on a tiny island in the North Atlantic? And if such a treasure exists, who buried it? For more than 200 years, treasure hunters have been coming to Oak Island in search of a treasure that has so far eluded them all, and has even cost six men their lives. Could it be that, as legend suggests, the treasure is protected by a deadly curse?

At the Fort East Martello Museum in Key West Florida, a cracked funerary plaque that once adorned a beautiful woman's grave now tells of one man's grotesque attempt to bring his love back from the dead. Visitors to the New Orleans Historic Voodoo Museum in New Orleans Louisiana can see a crudely made whip that harkens back to a blood-chilling practice that defies belief. And prominently displayed in the lavish Mansion at the Myrtles Plantation in St. Franscisville Louisiana, an antique mirror contains what some believe to be a portal to the world beyond the grave.
