The African Americans explores the evolution of the African-American people, as well as the multiplicity of cultural institutions, political strategies, and religious and social perspectives they developed-forging their own history and culture against unimaginable odds. Black in Latin America examines how indigenous, African, and European people came together to create the rich cultures of Latin America and the Caribbean.
Annabelle
John Form has found the perfect gift for his expectant wife, Mia. He gives her a beautiful, rare vintage doll in a pure white wedding dress. But Mia's delight with Annabelle doesn't last long. On one horrific night, their home is invaded by members of a satanic cult, who violently attack the couple. Spilled blood and terror are not all they leave behind.
The Drop
Lonely bartender Bob Saginowski and his hardened employer cousin Marv run a bar that is used as a 'drop' - a covert scheme that funnels cash to local gangsters. But when they find themselves caught in a robber gone bad, and on the hook for a debt they can't even repay, both men have to make the dangerous choice between loyalty and survival.
Killer Landslide
In less than two minutes in March, a one-square-mile field of debris slammed into the Washington state community of Oso, killing 41 and destroying nearly 50 homes. Drawing on analyses of other recent landslides around the world, geologists are investigating what triggered the deadliest U.S. landslide in decades and whether climate change is increasing the risk of similar disasters around the globe.
The Klondike Gold Rush
Renowned as the richest gold strike in North American mining history, the Klondike Gold Rush (1896-1899) set off a stampede of over 100,000 people on a colossal journey from Alaska to the gold fields of Canada's Yukon Territory. The Klondike Gold Rush is an incredible story of determination, luck, fortune, and loss. In the end, it isn't all about the gold, but rather the journey to the Klondike itself.

Victory in the Final Battle between the Gold Ninja and the Overlord has ushered in a new era of peace and begun a technological renaissance.

Take part in Winnipeg's annual epic scavenger hunt! Pay your respects to the racehorses forever frozen in the river! Help judge the yearly homoerotic Golden Boy pageant.
Surviving Ebola
As the Ebola epidemic threatens to spiral out of control, NOVA reports from the hot zone, where courageous medical teams struggle to cope with a flood of victims, to labs where scientists are racing to test vaccines and find a cure.

Swamp People - Season 5
Returns in Season Five to wade past the Cypress trees into the bayous of Louisiana in hot pursuit of the biggest and baddest bounty of alligators they can claim. The courageous teams come face to face with cannibal gators, potential poachers, and 'cursed' zones while pushing their limits and keeping their eyes on the prize, their families and livelihood depend on it.
Wild Congo
There's a reason Africa's most powerful and mysterious river is called the Heart of Darkness. Up to eight miles wide with towering ten-foot waves, the Congo pulses through dangerous terrain and serves as the lifeblood to an incredible variety of species; from forest elephants to elephant fish.
