Simon Schaffer investigates just how puzzling studying light turned out to be and how it affected knowledge of science, art and the human mind. He looks at how the industrial revolution was the catalyst for new scientific investigations into colour, how Cambridge anthropological expeditions to the Torres Straits in the late 19th century revealed strange truths about human perception and how Einstein's revelations about light, the universe and everything would completely change our worldview.

"The Education of Lucky Luciano" Charles "Lucky" Luciano arrives in New York City, teaming with Meyer Lansky and Bugsy Siegel, in the opener of this docudrama chronicling the roots of organized crime in America.

Inspired by a New Yorker story, “Jumpers,” written by Tad Friend, director Eric Steel decided to train cameras on the Golden Gate Bridge over the course of 2004 to capture the people who attempted to leap off the famed structure, the site of more suicides than anywhere else in the world. He also tracked down and interviewed the friends, family members, and eyewitnesses to further recreate the events leading up to the incident and to try to explain what led these people to want to kill themselves, especially at this specific site. The documentary’s primary subjects all struggled with mental illness, including severe depression, schizophrenia, and bipolar disorders, and the documentary struggles to understand their illness while illuminating the anger and hurt of their loved ones.

By the 17th century, Europe had taken over from the Middle East as the world's powerhouse of mathematical ideas. Great strides had been made in understanding the geometry of objects fixed in time and space. The race was now on to discover the mathematics to describe objects in motion. Marcus explores the work of Rene Descartes and Pierre Fermat, whose famous Last Theorem would puzzle mathematicians for more than 350 years. He also examines Isaac Newton's development of the calculus, and goes in search of Leonard Euler, the father of topology or 'bendy geometry', and Carl Friedrich Gauss who, at the age of 24, was responsible for inventing a new way of handling equations - modular arithmetic.

Although the twentieth century transformed Europe faster then previous history, the new century is bound to be even more radical in the rapport between man and wildlife. Some species adapt remarkably, even thrive under urbanization, landscaping, waste dumps etcetera. Many European authorities are starting to see the light and reverse disastrous 'management'. The greatest challenge probably comes from climate change, a timeless phenomenon, but the greenhouse effect means an unprecedented, fast edition.

Sam Neill transports us into the murky and terrifying world of the universe's ultimate monster - the black hole. They are only ten miles across, but they can rip apart a star of a million miles or more. Black holes are gravity gone mad. There should be ten million of them in our galaxy - but we have only found two hundred of them. So are black holes any threat to us here on Earth? Sam's voyage of discovery ends with a look at what would happen if our planet even encountered one of these interstellar destroyers.

Europe, 1400: A continent torn apart by war and plague is dominated by the authority of the Catholic Church. In the towns and cities live merchants and entrepreneurs who sense that their world is changing. With increasing trade and wealth an appetite for enlightenment develops.No longer neglected in the shadows of the Church, classical philosophy, poetry, art and sculpture begin to reach a new audience. This is especially true in cosmopolitan cities like Florence, home of Cosimo de'Medici.

Blackfish tells the story of Tilikum, a performing killer whale that killed several people while in captivity. Along the way, director-producer Gabriela Cowperthwaite compiles shocking footage and emotional interviews to explore the creature’s extraordinary nature, the species’ cruel treatment in captivity, the lives and losses of the trainers and the pressures brought to bear by the multi-billion dollar sea-park industry.
This emotionally wrenching, tautly structured story challenges us to consider our relationship to nature and reveals how little we humans have learned from these highly intelligent and enormously sentient fellow mammals.

While Carnegie and Rockefeller continue to battle, JP Morgan arrives on the scene and establishes a bank in New York City that has one goal: to further the technological advancements of America. Morgan s first investment is in Thomas Edison’s new development - electric light.

Nearly ten years after the tragic events of September 11, entrepreneur David Hooper began to question the official accounts of that day. Nagging skepticism soon turned to obsession. His quest to uncover an alternate truth behind the attacks soon created disharmony within his family and near financial ruin. Hooper's feature-length documentary The Anatomy of a Great Deception encapsulates his findings during this tumultuous period of discovery.

Of course, Hooper was not alone in his perception of a conspiracy. A growing number of regular citizens and figures of various industries had embarked on their own amateur investigations by the time his suspicions were first sparked. Their findings inform much of Hooper's own conclusions.

For he and many others, the curious crumbling of Building 7 represents one of the fundamental building blocks of a potential conspiracy. Located 300 feet from the North Tower - the length of a football field - Building 7 fell to the ground in the late afternoon of 9/11. Investigators claimed it had fallen due to structural compromises caused by the intensity of heat from the neighboring Twin Towers. Yet, in researching other high-rise buildings imperiled by raging fires, Hooper was unable to locate a single incident of a nearby building collapsing as a byproduct of such an event. In fact, none of the buildings that were actually engulfed in flames collapsed either. Several engineers have also come forward and claimed that the temperature of the fires on that day could not have successfully melted the steel structure of the towers. Could this indicate evidence of a controlled demolition?

In painstaking detail, Hooper continues to lay out findings from that day which support this troubling hypothesis, including sightings of molten metal, ear witness accounts of audible explosions, and the curiously symmetrical trajectory of each tower's collapse. Scattered throughout are archived interview clips of researchers, investigators, architectural specialists, and even fire department officials who all echo these same suspicions.

Like all conspiracy films, The Anatomy of a Great Deception presents a case that may be embraced wholeheartedly by some and dismissed outright by others. But it argues its theories with sincerity and conviction.

Sam Neill takes us on a rollercoaster ride through the galaxy to discover how disasters in space regularly threaten our entire world. We go back to the very earliest days of our planet to see why we are lucky life ever got started, and we learn just what will happen if a massive asteroid ends up on a collision course with Earth.

A documentary that examines a country where death squad leaders are celebrated as heroes, challenging them to reenact their real-life mass killings in the style of the American movies they love.

Carnegie hires a hatchet man, Henry Frick, to help him achieve his goal of besting Rockefeller. The partnership seems promising, but Carnegie does not know that Frick is running his factories far beyond capacity. Frick cuts corners and soon the pair is responsible for the biggest manmade disaster America has ever seen until that time: the Johnstown flood, which claims more than 2,000 lives. Carnegie hates being disliked and his initial impetus to seek revenge becomes the furthest thing from his mind.
