    Discovery Channel
    Hosted by reformed ex-burglars, Matt Johnston and Jon Douglas Rainey, It Takes a Thief tests the home-security of the average home owner by staging actual burglaries to reveal security shortcomings. In each episode, Matt and Jon search for a location to rob. In the first season, Matt would speak to the owners and convinced them that it would be a good idea to have their house robbed. Matt would then have the owners show him what security they did have in place. Then the homeowners would lock up and would join Matt in the production van to watch the break in on closed circuit TV. In the second season, the producers would approach the owners and in most cases, Jon would break in while the owners weren't home and Matt would watch the break in alone. The homeowners would then be shown the tapes upon returning home. In both seasons, after a walkthrough of the house, the homeowners had the opportunity to meet Jon and have him answer their questions of how and why. After all of the property was returned and the mess cleaned up, Matt would return with a team of security experts then give the property a full security makeover complete with everything from locks to landscaping. A few weeks later, Matt and Jon returned and Jon tested the new security system by attempting to break in once again. After premiering in 2005, It Takes a Thief ran for 2 seasons and is currently on hiatus.moreless

    Battlefield Detectives is a historical forensic documentary TV series developed by the History Channel that explores history's more infamous battles in a bid to go beyond war tactics by utilizing modern science to see what truly led to a battle being won or lost. A team of experts, including the likes of archaeologists, forensic scientists, crowd dynamics specialists, military experts, and other scientists galore, take on the task of understanding war in a joint effort to combine their individual disciplines to find insights into what actually happened, rather than relying upon rumors and legends. What really did happen on the waters of English Channel when the Spanish Armada, considered the most illustrious naval fleet at the time, faced Queen Elizabeth I's forces in 1588? While the Siege of Alesia in 52 BCE is considered Julius Caesar's greatest military feats but why is considered an example of siege warfare? From the past to the present, Battlefield Detectives looks beyond what the history books say to find out the truth.moreless
