    Joseph Campbell: Mythos is a multi-part documentary television series consisting of lectures by Joseph Campbell, which originally ran on PBS for 4 seasons, totaling 20 episodes, and was produced by the Joseph Campbell foundation. The series investigates popular myths, delving into surprising facts about the human mythic impulse in terms of psychology, ethnology, and comparative mythology. In the last 6 years of his life, Campbell delivered these lectures to share his life’s findings about the subject of myths, a phenomenon that has been around for all of recorded human existence. Campbell discusses why myths exist, how they differ, but also resemble one another, across cultures, and what they did to shape mindsets and civilization. He discusses why certain myths took on different forms and played more heavily with certain themes at different times, as well as why myths are important at all. Joseph Campbell: Mythos varies along three major themes: the shaping of our mythic tradition, the shaping of eastern tradition, and the shaping of western tradition. For an informative lecture series about a fascinating topic, check out PBS’s Joseph Campbell: Mythos.moreless

    Sarah's Summer House is the HGTV series where host Sarah Richardson works on creating a weekend getaway house. Sarah started her career 15 years ago as a prop stylist and set decorator for television shows. When design television became all the rage, she became in high demand for her amazing work done with her company Sarah Richardson Design Inc, which she has ran for more than a decade. Sarah takes on residential and commercial projects, creating signature spaces with timeless appeal. Sarah was even named one of Canada's "style-makers" by Canadian House & Home magazine. Now we get to join the designer as she takes on a personal project, that she will actually be living in. Purchased by her husband as a bachelor shack before they got married, the tiny island cottage is located 17 miles offshore and lives completely off the grid. The rustic and relaxing place runs off a combination of solar, wind, and propane energy, but the style could use an update. Sarah is going to work to renovate the place, making it as beautiful as the stunning lake scenery that surrounds it, while also considering storage, versatility and more. Join the accomplished designer as she takes on an away-from-home project in HGTV's Sarah's Summer House.moreless

    Big Ideas is a four part series with intimate interviews from some of the most notable minds at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey. In 2004 producer Larkin McPhee brought us a truly groundbreaking miniseries, hosted by science journalist Ira Flatow, that focuses on four main topics. Exploring the Cosmos opens up discussion about everything from extra terrestrial life to the ever fascinating subject of black holes. In the segment Einstein's Dream, Flatow sits down with a litany of notable physicists to discuss Albert Einstein's quest to find a unifying theory to the Universe. A New History of the World allows for topics of war and culture to be thoroughly dissected, and Thinking Big treats the audience to a fascinating conversation of the parallel between math, biology, and everything in between. Some of the most interesting discussions are in store for all of us, with countless videos available to get our fill.

    There's nothing quite like walking out of the hospital with your first child, putting your newborn in the car for the first time, driving home, and walking through the door with your new family member. Now what? Bringing Home Baby is a new show that focuses on those first few incredible days at home. It's time to learn how to hold babies, feed them, burp them, diaper them, swaddle them, calm them down, trim their fingernails… and try to get some well-deserved rest. The first few days at home for rookie parents are a jumble of emotions. They experience everything from joy, excitement, love and happiness, to fear, uncertainty and insecurity. No matter how prepared you think you are, you still don't really know what you're in for, and you have no idea how tired you can possibly get! TLC's series "Bringing Home Baby" focuses on those first 36 hours at home with your new baby. Sure, a newborn does only a few things: eat, sleep, cry and go through diapers. But each of those activities presents its own set of challenges for new parents. Plus, there seems to be an endless list of skills to master for a newborn: you've got to learn how to hold them, feed them, burp them, diaper them, swaddle them, calm them down, trim their fingernails and get them to sleep. Meanwhile, a new mom has her own health to think about as well. Sometimes friends and family are there to lend a hand and help the newbie parents learn the ropes. But having friends and family involved can complicate even non-stressful situations. What happens when Dad changes his first diaper - with his mother-in-law hovering over his shoulder? What about that entire extended family that wants to show up and celebrate? What if the dogs can't adapt to the newest addition? That's right. It's part bundle of joy/part bundle of nerves when you're Bringing Home Baby!moreless

    Assassination Nation Politics in the Philippines is a dangerous occupation.

The crew follow Esmael Mangudadatu as he carefully navigates his way to the election office to file hiscertificate of candidacy for governorship. The last time he tried to run for office of governor, his family and friends went off to the offices to file the candidacy for him but were brutally murdered and dumped in a mass grave. Whilst horrific that is just a small example of the political violence that grips the Philippines.

    Get Schooled is a VH1 documentary series that aims to provide students with some perspective about the importance of education and how school will help you achieve amazing things if you apply yourself. Sometimes it's hard to see the big picture. School is boring, there's no clear point to the lessons, and there are so many things you'd rather be doing. Get Schooled follows three young professionals who have achieved tremendous success at a young age. In entertainment, we meet Kelly Clarkson's Music Director as he works with Kelly to prepare her for an upcoming performance. In sports, we meet LeBron James' marketing manager as she explains what her job is and the unconventional education route she took to land this esteemed position. In politics and writing, we learn who Barack Obama's speech writer is, and how such a young man became not only a member of the President's inner circle, but a man in charge of presenting the President's ideas to the public. Get Schooled will help ambitious students see the light at the end of the tunnel, and the importance of sticking with school.moreless
