    Armageddon from The History Channel is a series that delves into the deep secret fear we all have: that one day soon the world will come to an end. Interestingly enough, nearly every major religion and society past and present has a concept of the end of days; the time during which destruction of the world will begin to wipe out evil so good may live forever. With this series different aspects of the Armageddon myths are explored and mysterious ancient figures discussed. The famous predictions of Nostradamus are dissected as well as Mayan myths and theories on what really killed the dinosaurs. The show speculates on phenomena that could destroy the Earth such as a gamma ray burst and offers opinions on what life would be life after humans are gone. For anyone who is interested in mythology, theology and the science that interweaves the two, this is the series to watch.moreless

    War of the Century from The History Channel examines the bloody conflict that took place in Eastern Europe during the Second World War. Hitler and the Nazis fought on one side of the war while Stalin led the opposing Soviet Union forces on the other. This four-part TV series was filmed in Germany, Hungary, Poland, Russia, Ukraine, and Belorussia, and is dedicated to the events that took place during this deadly conflict. From the time Hitler invaded the Soviet Union in 1941 until his eventual defeat in 1942, over 30 million people were killed and even more were injured. This series not only includes interviews with leading historians and extremely rare film footage, but also presents eyewitness reports detailing some of the events that took place during the fight for Moscow. Even during this devastating war, the terror that occurred inside the Soviet Union due to the ever paranoid Joseph Stalin could not go unnoticed. In this historical series, the complicated and often fatal internal conflict is discussed alongside the larger war between Nazism and Stalinism. This approach created a unique and educational documentary that sheds light on one of the deadliest wars ever fought.moreless

Lincoln's body was original moved almost two thousand miles to his hometown in Springfield, Illinois the month after his death. However, it was moved many times afterwards, not reaching its final resting place until 1901. It was during that time that the macabre plot unfolded, involving the Secret Service and a group of self-appointed guardians who protected Lincoln's body. Stealing Lincoln's Body uncovers why the body was moved so frequently and why the country may have been reluctant to let go of the well-loved president.moreless
