    National Geographic
    Calling All Sharks pairs National Geographic Ultimate Explorer correspondent Mireya Mayor with renowned underwater cinematographer Bob Cranston in a mission to capture the beauty and ferocious power of the great white shark. The show highlights the use of a unique sound wave device, otherwise known as Shark Sonics, to attract sharks to the camera and offer viewers closeup footage of these amazing ocean predators. In the past, sharks were lured with a mixture of fish parts and blood called chum. Unfortunately, chum muddies the waters and causes the sharks to go into a frenzy. With Shark Sonics, viewers will see these great creatures in a more natural state while the researchers suffer less risk of injury to themselves and equipment - or at least, that's the theory. Calling All Sharks follows Cranston and Mayor as they test the new device, losing the shark cage and going face-to-face with great whites without fear for their safety.moreless

    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

    Justice: What's The Right Thing To Do? is a television series produced by Harvard University and the WGBH network. The show films lectures held by Harvard professor and author Michael Sandel, who urges his students to deconstruct ideas and theories relating to justice, equality, democracy, and citizenship. The classes are intended to increase the student's knowledge of philosophy and moral ethics by introducing them to some of the greatest philosophers - Aristotle, Kant, Mill, Locke - and by testing what they have theorized. After the students are introduced to these long-term beliefs, Michael puts their critical thinking skills to the test by creating hypothetical moral dilemmas and asking them what they think is the right thing to do given the situation. Students are encouraged to stand up and voice their opinions, which usually results in a larger debate including the entire class. The show is both fun to watch and educational and is a must see for anyone who enjoys a little intellectual stimulation.moreless

    Ken Burns: America is a historical documentary TV series developed by PBS that follows the award winning and acclaimed historical documentaries of Ken Burns, an American director known for his intimate and no-hold approach in his films. In the America series, Burns has spent the past twenty years telling the stories of topics deeply ingrained in the history and culture of what makes America what it is today. From the deeply American classic of baseball with its die hard fans and memories and myths that cross all generations (Baseball) to the bloody war between brothers in the civil war (The Civil War) to the development and dominance of America’s first form of mass medium in the form of the radio (Empire of the Air), Ken Burns holds nothing back in sharing, enlightening, and expanding upon the knowledge of who, what, when, where, why, and how these pieces of the United States became the defining factors of the American people and, in some ways, the world. Baseball, the Civil War, radio, inventor Frank Lloyd Wright, the infamous development of Jazz, the unparalleled achievement of the Brooklyn Bridge, the Statue of Liberty, and the Women’s Movement with Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony are all just some of what Ken Burns considers American Stories.moreless

    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
