    BBC
    Secrets of World War II is a series that takes you beyond what you already know about World War II. You know about Churchill, Eisenhower and Stalin and how they formed a coalition to defeat Germany, Italy and Japan. They were the "faces" of World War II, and rightfully so. But World War II was more than about them. It was about violent beach landings in France, desert warfare in Africa and nautical combat in the Pacific. It was about people from every walk of life, from ordinary situations, doing extraordinary things. In the trenches, in the cockpit and behind the wheel, people you might have known from the grocery store, lumber mill or the school board fought, bled and helped win the war. Secrets of World War II tells you their stories. See how their battles fit into the overall story of the war, how their small victories led to larger ones. Each hour-long episode gives you in-depth information not just on why they made the decisions they did, but how those decisions ultimately helped win World War II.moreless

    BBC
    Michael Palin: New Europe is the BBC travel series where Monty Python alum Michael Palin takes us along with him on his globe-trotting adventures. Michael's travels in New Europe show a world that has changed greatly since the collapse of the Iron Curtain and the end of the Cold War. Most of the perception of Europe focuses on Western Europe, forgetting that the countries in Eastern Europe are new to the western world. They are new nations with new governments trying to find their place in the post-Soviet world. Michael journeys on a voyage of discovery in places that were once forbidden, enjoying the new freedom to roam unhindered of places in his own continent which he previously couldn't visit. The series had seven episodes where Palin visits 20 countries, seeing places like Moldova, Estonia, Slovakia, Serbia, Albania, the Republic of Macedonia, and Herzegovina. Palin also released a companion book called New Europe, documenting the trip with photographs by Basil Pao.moreless

    Ovation TV
    Masters of American Music is a documentary feature tracing the roots of American jazz. Telling the story through the words of the artists themselves, Masters of American Music profiles American jazz masters Charlie Parker, Billie Holiday and Thelonius Monk. Parker, a saxophone prodigy, nearly re-invented the music form before his untimely death at 35, attributed to drug usage. Parker gained tremendous success at an early age and was embraced by music fans and insiders alike. Holiday's contribution to her musical genre is still being felt today, and through interviews with friends and peers, her life and music is examined. Thelonius Monk, known as much for his colorful, eccentric personality as for his music, is profiled like never before, and a portrait of a deeply misunderstood man emerges. Through interviews with jazz greats such as Dizzy Gillespie, Ruby Dee, Tony Bennett and Wynton Marsalis, the richly tapestried history of jazz is celebrated.moreless
