AKB0048 - Season 2
The combat squad singing group seeking peace and entertainment for the universe has the chance to become successors to original, legendary members. The fights on the battlefield and stage become more cutthroat and things intensify when someone begins feeding information to the opposing forces. The harmony that's held this band together will be tested and pushed to the breaking point.
American Blackout
What if the Doomsday Preppers were right all along? Hacking into urban infrastructures isn't science fiction anymore, it's in the news every day. A 90-minute docu-drama, reveals in gritty detail the impact of what happens when a cyber attack on the United States takes down the power grid. The question is: when the lights go out, what do we do next?
The Amish: Shunned
The Amish intercuts historical analysis with contemporary footage to provide an unprecedented look at this highly private, little understood, and utterly unique community whose beliefs raise important questions about religious liberty in American life.
Baggage Claim
Determined to get engaged before her youngest sister's wedding, flight attendant Montana Moore finds herself with only 30 days to find Mr. Right. Using her airline connections to 'accidentally' meet up with eligible ex-boyfriends and scour for potential candidates, she racks up more than 30,000 miles and countless comedic encounters, all the while searching for the perfect guy.
Blood Brother
Rocky went to India as a disillusioned tourist with no close family of his own. When he met a group of children with HIV, he decided to stay and devote his life to them. To the children, he becomes 'Rocky Anna,' or brother. The documentary features longtime friend Steve Hoover, as he traces Rocky's story of working in the village of Tamil Nadu, India for five years. The film illustrates his commitment to the children and their families who face life-and-death situations on a daily basis.
Burton and Taylor
Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor had one of the most fascinating, glamorous and tempestuous relationships of the 20th century - the two most famous movie stars of their day who played out every high and low of their love affairs, multiple marriages and divorces right in the public eye. The movie follows their private and public relationship played out against their ill-fated appearance in a 1983 revival of Noel Coward's stage play. Tempestuous, funny, and dripping with diamonds.
Chasing Shackleton
Can six people endure Sir Ernest Shackleton's Antarctic rescue mission today? Using a replica boat, and the same equipment and clothing as would have been used in 1914, explorer Tim Jarvis and his crew attempt to follow in Shackleton's wake, going beyond the point of no return, using their firsthand extreme experience measured against historical accounts to unlock the secrets of Shackleton's survival.
Closed Circuit
One morning, a busy London market is decimated by an explosion. In the manhunt that follows, only one member of the suspected terrorist cell survives: Farroukh Erdogan, who is arrested and jailed. Martin and Claudia are lawyers and ex-lovers who find themselves bound together again and put at risk after they join the defense team for an international terrorist's trial.
Cold Case JFK
For decades, the assassination of John F. Kennedy has fueled dark rumors of conspiracies and mishandled evidence. Now, fifty years later, NOVA asks: Could modern investigators do better? See how state-of-the art forensic tools would be applied to the investigation were it to happen today. NOVA also takes a critical look at contemporary cases, like the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman, to reveal how charges of evidence mishandling and human error can mar detective work.
Escape Plan
Ray Breslin, one of the world's foremost authorities on structural security, agrees to take on one last job: breaking out of an ultra-secret, high-tech facility called The Tomb. Deceived and wrongly imprisoned, Ray must recruit fellow inmate Emil Rottmayer to help devise a daring, nearly impossible plan to escape from the most protected and fortified prison ever built.
Free Bird
Two turkeys from opposite sides of the tracks must put aside their differences and team up to travel back in time to change the course of history, and get turkey off the holiday menu for good.
Got the facts on milk?
A documentary that dares to question the conventional wisdom of the publicized health benefits of milk and dairy products. Addressing myth, truth, and everything in between, the film is a humorous yet shocking exposition that provokes serious thought about this everyday staple.
Hawking
The film features exclusive access to Hawking's life story, told largely in his own words. It includes dramatic accounts of his life from childhood through university, intimate footage of Hawking today, including his home routine and his work life at the University of Cambridge, archival footage and candid insights from family members, friends and colleagues.
It's not me, I swear!
Leon is not like most ten-year olds. This innocent-looking boy with an overly fertile imagination is a young hellion, a consummate liar and thief well versed in breaking and entering his neighbors' homes and running away from his own. When his mom decides to pack up and leave for Greece, Leon does so much to keep her there.
Midsomer Murders Set 23
The cozy villages of Midsomer County reveal their most sinister secrets in these contemporary British television mysteries. Inspired by the novels of Caroline Graham, modern master of the English village mystery, the series stars Neil Dudgeon as the capable Detective Chief Inspector John Barnaby, with Jason Hughes as his earnest, efficient protege, Detective Sergeant Ben Jones.
MLB Pride and Perseverance: the story of the Negro Leagues
The history of the Negro Leagues is often a forgotten part of baseball history. And despite its popularity and wealth of talent was not well documented. The film sheds light on this period and shows how it laid the groundwork for today's African-American players in Major League Baseball.
Pit Stop
Openly gay Ernesto and closeted Gabe grapple with the sad tribulations of being gay in a small, working-class Texas town. A truly uplifting love story about male intimacy, the heartache of unsuccessful relationships, and the transformative power of love.
The Poisoner's Handbook
In the early twentieth century, the average American medicine cabinet was a would-be poisoner's treasure chest. There was radioactive radium in health tonics, thallium in depilatory creams, and morphine in teething medicine and potassium cyanide in cleaning supplies. While the tools of the murderer's trade multiplied as the pace of industrial innovation increased, the scientific knowledge (and the political will) to detect and prevent the crimes lagged behind.
Romeo and Juliet
It's William Shakespeare's epic and searing tale of love. An ageless story from the world's most renowned author is reimagined for the 21st Century. This adaptation is told in the lush traditional setting it was written, but gives a new generation the chance to fall in love with the enduring legend.
Scorned
If you're going to cheat on your lover, don't get caught. And if you do get caught, you'd better hope your lover isn't secretly insane. Kevin learns the hard way not to get caught cheating on his lover, when his girlfriend Sadie discovers that he's having a scorching affair with her best friend. Now Sadie has planned a romantic weekend getaway for just the three of them, complete with terror, torture and twisted psychosexual games. The trap is set. The party has begun.
The White Queen
A riveting portrayal of one of the most dramatic and turbulent times in English history. A story of love and lust, seduction and deception, betrayal and murder, it is uniquely told through the perspective of three different, yet equally relentless women - Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret Beaufort and Anne Neville. In their quest for power, they will scheme, manipulate and seduce their way onto the English throne.
