    Swords: Life On The Line takes cameras into the high risk world of New England's long line fishermen, who risk everything to catch an elusive prey in some of the most dangerous waters on the planet. These men and women are uniformly tough and resilient and they need to be as every day could be their last. The prey they hunt is the swordfish -- those magnificent giants of the deep that can weigh over a thousand pounds and are found in the waters around the Grand Banks off Newfoundland and the Georges Bank off the Gulf of Maine. These waters are also home to some of the wildest storms on earth. Swords follows four boats: The Eagle Eye II, Big Eye, Seahawk & The Frances Ann, as they head into these stormy waters hoping to hit the jackpot. The skippers of the boats use every bit of experience and knowledge they have to try and find the fish, at incredible risks. Even if these fisherman catche plenty of fish, they still have to make it home alive, and some never did. It's a gamble where lives are on the line and it's all caught on camera on Swords: Life On The Line.moreless

    The Naked Underground is a documentary TV and web series developed by the History Channel that offers a chance to take a peek underneath the prevailing figures and ideas most people learn about different cultures in the world. Don Wildman, host of Naked Underground’s parent show, “Cities of the Underworld”, investigates and learns about the not-so known facts of topics such as the often forgotten Japanese female Samurais, the shrieking cries of the Celtic Banshees, and the first capital of the United States – New York. The Naked Underground deals with historical fact – the Westminster Burial Ground, which had been the most popular place to get a corpse for a few bucks – to the urban legends – the Founding Father’s Death Wish, which is a myth about how all 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence died shortly after their John Hancock graced the pages. These short little journeys into the underbellies of the cultural underground often an amusing and captivating look at some of those lesser-known facts.moreless

The series won an Annie, two BAFTAs, a Broadcasting Press Guild award, three Emmys Awards for Outstanding Animated Program (For Programming More Than One Hour), Outstanding Sound Editing in Non-Fiction Program & Outstanding Special Visual Effects for a Miniseries, Movie or a Special (out of six nominations), the Peabody Award, three Royal Television Society awards, a TV Quick Award, a Television and Radio Industries Club Award, and a Young Artist Award.
