    The History Channel
    A time of compassion and heroism countered by hate and violence, it took the courage of individuals like Rosa Parks, Medgar Evers and Martin Luther King Jr. to lead a nation toward its rightful destiny. Fueled the inequalities born out of centuries of racial injustice, countless others joined the cause - their stories and perspectives on those trying times are detailed in this collection from History. From sit-ins and Freedom Riders to a nation shocked by Bloody Sunday, Voices of Civil Rights captures the epic sweep and scope of the movement which transformed the nation and includes: "Save Our History: Voices of Civil Rights," a collection of personal narratives created by a group of journalists, photographers, and videographers as they embarked on a bus drip around the country to create the largest archive of oral histories of the civil rights movement; "Crossing the Bridge," filled with stunning footage and memories of activists who lived through an unprovoked attack on civil rights protestors crossing the Edmund Pettis Bridge into Montgomery, Alabama on March 7, 1965; and "Mississippi State Secrets," the truth behind the Missippi State Sovereighty Commission, an organization created by the Mississippi state legislature to preserve segregation.moreless

    Henry Adams, the American historian and the grandson and great-grandson of presidents, said the president "resembles the commander of a ship at sea. He must have a helm to grasp, a course to steer, a port to seek." Each of our presidents has taken America on a different voyage - voyages shaped by how each sitting president has defined the institution of the presidency. Some have been more bold than others - working to mold public opinion and actively pushing their programs through Congress. Others have not ventured far - feeling that presidential intervention often causes more problems than it solves. One can look at the presidency in the 20th century and through the office see the drama of contemporary American history - war, economic hardship, women's rights, race relations, our triumphs and our failures - it is all there.moreless

    National Geographic: Dinosaurs Unearthed is the documentary series that takes a look back to the world of the Dinosaurs, through the stories of two landmark discoveries. In the documentary Dino Death Trap, the National Geographic team looks at a massive find in China. The site was found in China's Gobi Desert, where huge amounts of dinosaur bones were found. The bones were found overlaying each other in a single location, and the huge find even led to discovering several new species. This Jurassic graveyard also led scientists to believe that the find supported the theory that a catastrophic disaster killed the animals. In Dino Autopsy, we get an inside look at one of the most complete and well-preserved dinosaur fossils. The mummified specimen had been preserved with skin and tissue still intact after 70 million years. The unearthing of the fossil provides a rare look into how the creatures lived, looked, and moved. Join in as two of the most fascinating finds in dinosaur research are examined further on National Geographic: Dinosaurs Unearthed.moreless
