S255E17 America's Great War: 1917-1918 00/00/0000 As much as the American participation in World War II has been clearly noted, the presence of the American soldiers - nicknamed the 'Sammies' (sent by Uncle Sam) - on French soil during the Great War is virtually unknown. And yet, 2 million Sammies arrived in France between 1917 and 1918 to fight alongside French and English troops. They have been stuck in the trenches, buried in a rain of shells, exhausted by the noise and tormented by hunger. 53,000 perished, 234,000 were injured and 4,500 went missing. Without the participation of these men, the conflict could have ended entirely differently. Indeed, they proved to be the undisputed artisans of Allied victory and hoisted their country to the rank of world's leading military and economic power. Through unreleased archives and contemporary footage shot in the archeological digs of World War I's battlefields, this film tells the heroic and tragic tale of the American soldiers in this terrible conflict. Still today, many clues, objects and graves are randomly uncovered during the course of archeological projects carried out around the front lines and in the battlefields. They provide an emotional account of this violent tale and of the emergence of a nation.

S255E26 Mission Pluto 12/07/2015 Nine years in space. A four billion mile journey. Travelling at 35,000 miles per hour. One historic mission. Back in 2006 the New Horizons space probe was launched from Cape Canaveral on a journey bound for the edge of our solar system with the goal of capturing the first clear images and data ever recorded of Pluto. New Horizons is headed where no spacecraft has ever gone before: the last great, uncharted realm of our solar system called The Third Zone. There it will intercept the last unexplored world, the ninth planet, Pluto. It has just 86 seconds to complete its mission but assuming it is successful then this will genuinely be history in the making. No-one yet knows what Pluto really looks like, but one thing is certain: it looks set to revolutionise planetary science forever, because it could answer some of the biggest questions about how our solar system evolved and, ultimately, how the earth was formed. All being well New Horizons will fly by Pluto on July 14. It anticipation of that event National Geographic Channel broadcasts an hour-long special revealing the extraordinary story behind a landmark mission.
S255E27 Nazi Scrapbooks From Hell 13/07/2015 The death camp at Auschwitz was considered ground zero for the killings during the Holocaust, a place where thousands were starved and 1.1 million died, but there are only a small number of known photos from this infamous place before its liberation in 1945 - until now. The photos in this album are far from the gruesome iconic images of living skeletons or ash-choked ovens. These rare images show life from the other side of the wire, where the banality of evil is depicted by cocktail parties, sing-a-longs and food contests attended by the perpetrators. Another album showcases the victims as they arrive at Auschwitz. These albums are nothing short of scrapbooks from hell

S255E30 YouTube Revolution 30/08/2015 As YouTube turns ten, we chart the history of the last decade through the lens of the world's most famous video sharing site. This is the inside story on the biggest and most influential viral videos in history, and the platform's meteoric rise from start-up to major corporate player. It's the human story of those who created it, the stars it gave birth to, and the countries whose fates it changed. On April 23, 2005 the first YouTube video, "Meet Me at the Zoo," featuring co-founder Jawed Karim, was uploaded. Ten Years later, the video sharing platform has harnessed a power that has changed the world -transforming pop culture, rewriting the rules of politics, overthrowing governments, redefining the nature of news, and exposing us all to tweaking, planking, Psy, Beiber, and the car in the shark outfit on the robo-vac. This is the story of how all that happened in a single decade.
S255E31 The 2000's Greatest Tragedies 00/00/0000 '2000s Greatest Tragedies' shines a light on the decade which brought us destruction on an unimaginable scale.

As the World Wide Web put news and information firmly in the hands of the people, it was a decade when news moved fast and thanks to social media, earth shattering events would unfold in real time.
S255E32 Giant Sea Serpent: Meet The Myth 15/09/2015 Its extraordinary dimensions, as long as 15 metres, and shape in the form of a silver ribbon, inspired the myth of the sea serpent. For the past two years, scientific buoys, immersed at a depth of two thousand metres in the Mediterranean have attracted countless species of pelagic fish; among them, the Giant Oarfish drifting vertically, alone or by pairs. With the help of the world expert in Giant Oarfish and logistic collaboration of enthusiasts, a scientific expedition reveals the biology of this enigmatic ambassador of the abyss. Entirely shot in HD, the film raises the veil on its paradoxical habits: why do all the adults self-mutilate and rid themselves of two-thirds of their bodies without being affected? How do they meet in the immensity of the ocean? Why does this fish not have any known predators?
S255E33 Ghosts of the Black Sea 00/00/0000 In the depths of the Black Sea lies a landscape of eternal darkness. With no light and no oxygen in the sea's anoxic layer, no life can survive, except perhaps the ghosts of ancient mariners whose ships foundered thousands of years ago. Because the environment cannot support the organisms that typically feast on organic materials, such as wood and flesh, there is an extraordinary opportunity for preservation, including shipwrecks and the cargos they carried. In the year 2000, on his third trip to the Black Sea, explorer Dr. Robert Ballard discovered a miraculously well-preserved Byzantine shipwreck, but his team could only take pictures. Now, Ballard returns with archaeologist Dr. Bridget Buxton and Dr. Sergiy Voronov of the Ukrainian Department of Underwater Heritage, and uses state-of-the-art technology and a revolutionary $1.5 million robot known as "Hercules" to excavate two shipwrecks for the first time ever, including one of the most pristine ancient vessels ever found. In 2006, Ballard and the team returned to survey the area for more shipwrecks, and last year began excavations on Sinop D, and Chersonesos A, a 10th-century shipwreck found off southern Crimea at a depth of 135 meters. At Chersonesos A, the team excavated the ship's cargo of nearly 200 jars commonly found at Byzantine sites on the shores of the Black Sea, including Chersonesos. The bright orange color of the nearly 1,000-year-old jars was completely preserved, to the team's amazement. From there, the team sailed to the deeper site, Sinop D, which was the focus of the 2007 survey. The team hoped to answer questions about the ship's construction, its cargo, and how the anoxic conditions had affected its preservation. Ballard and his team have only two weeks, so they must work in perfect precision on their hunt for the Ghost Ships of the Black Sea. Ballard calls this site "the greatest museum on Earth," but his team of marine archaeologists has only begun to
S255E34 Dawn of Humanity 23/09/2015 NOVA and National Geographic present exclusive access to a unique discovery of ancient remains. Located in an almost inaccessible chamber deep in a South African cave, the site required recruiting a special team of experts slender enough to wriggle down a vertical, pitch-dark, seven-inch-wide passage. Most fossil discoveries of human relatives consist of just a handful of bones. But down in this hidden chamber, the team uncovered an unprecedented trove—so far, over 1,500 bones—with the potential to rewrite the story of our origins. They may help fill in a crucial gap in the fossil record and tell us how Homo, the first member of the human family, emerged from ape-like ancestors like the famous Lucy. But how did hundreds of bones end up in the remote chamber? The experts are considering every mind-boggling possibility. Join NOVA on the treacherous descent into this cave of spectacular and enigmatic finds, and discover their startling implications for the saga of what made us human.

S255E59 Devil's Bible 01/09/2008 At 165 pounds, and allegedly made from the skins of 160 donkeys, the Codex Gigas is the world's largest and most mysterious medieval manuscript. Filled with satanic images and demonic spells, according to legend, the cursed text sprang from a doomed monk's pact with the Devil. Now, Nat Geo follows a team of scientists as they embark on an unprecedented quest to unravel the secrets behind the book's darkened pages. Using ultra-violet fluorescence imaging, handwriting analysis and a re-creation of the text, forensic document experts attempt to uncover the cryptic truth behind this ancient Devil's Bible. The Devil’s Bible is so huge that it requires at least two people to carry it. Once considered the eighth wonder of the world, the Codex Gigas stretches three feet long and weighs a hundred and sixty-five pounds. It is the only book that places the Old and New Testaments alongside violent, holy incantations. The Codex Gigas contains one full page – right opposite the devil portrait – of a towering Heavenly City. Although no people can be seen in the Heavenly City, it is a symbol of hope and salvation, a contrast to the portrait of the devil on the opposing page. The Codex Gigas includes mystical medical formulas for anything from treating ailments such as fevers and epilepsy to resolving practical problems such as finding a thief. The book's transfer to Prague in 2008 took a year of planning. It was insured for $15.1 million during the transfer. The Devil’s Bible has 600 pages, which is 310 parchment leaves, all made from donkey skins.

S00E05 Beyond 2000: The New Explorers 00/00/0000 Some may assume that the world has been adequately explored, but this beautiful video from National Geographic comes as a bold announcement that some fantastic exploring has yet to be done. The new generation of explorers featured in this video, which includes Dr. Robert Ballard, celebrated finder of the Titanic; deep-sea researcher Sylvia Earle; noted Egyptian archaeologist Dr. Zahi Hawass; and some younger mountaineers, mappers, and dinosaur hunters, embody the bold spirit that National Geographic has always championed. Ballard's dive to the bottom of the Mediterranean is awe inspiring and a trip into a Tibetan jungle, in search of a mythical waterfall that turns out to be entirely real, is so realistically photographed that viewers will be shifting nervously in their seats as they peak over the edge of cliffs and into the rushing waters of the Tsangpo Gorge. A star of the new generation of mountaineers, Heidi Howkins, who set out to conquer the world's tallest peaks, Everest and K2, in one year, speaks eloquently about what makes an explorer, and her insights about seeking challenges both physical and mental resonate deeply. This video is a treat to watch, but the spectacular camera work aside, it is a thoughtful look at human nature and the compulsion some have to go beyond the edge of the map
S00E06 Antarctic Wildlife Adventure 00/00/0000 n this 60-minute documentary, National Geographic accompanies a family of naturalists on a quiet journey through islands around the northern tip of Antarctica. The family members, seasoned Antarctic explorers, study bustling penguin colonies to gauge the general environmental health of the peninsula. Interestingly, the film reveals that scientists are the primary threat to Antarctica's ecology--in some areas, rusting shipwrecks and abandoned oil drums from scientific expeditions litter the landscape. Unlike most National Geographic features, this film favors character studies over geology--we learn quite a bit about the family's three sons, but little about the formation of the "last continent." The camera work is somewhat uninspired (perhaps due to the restrictions of filming from the boat), but there are some excellent close-ups of humpback whales surfacing around the small vessel. Penguin lovers will also enjoy the ample footage of their favorite amiable black-and-white birds.
S00E07 African Wildlife 00/00/0000 Witness the realities of birth, death and survival in this vivid encounter with the animal world.

In North Yemen, a rhino-handled dagger is the ultimate status symbol, and a fine antique specimen sells for as much as $15,000. In Africa, the war to save the rhino is heading toward a bitter climax. Zimbabwe rangers realize they can only stem the tide of this crisis unless the network of corrupt dealers and middlemen in the illegal wildlife trade is broken. Until then, the desperate battle to save one of the world's oldest surviving land mammals from extinction continues.

S00E23 Sea Monsters: Search for the Giant Squid 25/02/1998 The giant squid (genus Architeuthis) seems like a creature from mythology--the world's largest invertebrate (up to 60 feet long), the largest eyes in the animal kingdom, a highly developed brain, a voracious predator. In works of fiction, they are a ferocious enemy of man. But the giant squid is real. Yet all we know about them comes from carcasses washed up on shore or caught in fishermen's nets; Architeuthis has never been seen alive. This documentary looks at the scientific efforts to find a live specimen in nature, focusing on Dr. Clyde Roper's project to attach a "Crittercam" camera to a sperm whale (which feeds on giant squid) in hopes that the whale will lead us to the elusive deep-sea giant squid.

Some even reach a certain level of fame: The Ampato maiden sacrificed on an Andes peak. The Alpine Ice Man, the oldest frozen mummy ever found. England's 9,000-year-old Cheddar Man. Others' stories are known only to the ages, like a cache of elaborately adorned 7,000-year-old mummies unearthed in Chile, and the thousands of Egyptian mummies actually burned as train fuel in the 19th century. Modern science now allows us to explore these human treasures without destroying them, and connects us all to the secrets of the ancient dead.
