National Geographic Wild X Files

From the odd and amusing to the downright creepy, mysteries found in nature are no less weird than anything found in popular science fiction! In a brand new series of Wild X Files, Wednesdays at 8pm from 22 August, see real-life cases from the natural world that will baffle and fascinate you. On Shark Attack Beach, where 7% of the world's shark attacks occur, experts try to understand why the full moon seems to increase attacks. In the Cotswolds, a weird creature appears to be stalking dog walkers. And, in an apocalyptic scene right out of a sci-fi thriller, 5,000 blackbirds suddenly fall out of the sky in Arkansas on New Year's Eve. Other cases covered include the hundreds of elk who dropped dead for no apparent reason and the strange appearance of Star Jelly which left locals scratching their heads in the Scottish Highlands. Experts attempt to find the answers to these bizarre mysteries.

Mystery Files

From the Legends of King Arthur and Robin Hood to the recent events of the Russian Revolution, history is full of fascinating and evocative unsolved mysteries. They have inspired, intrigued and often confounded us - but how much do we really know about them? And can we separate fact from fiction? In Mystery Files, the dust is blown off the case files of the world's most famous and iconic mysteries in a dynamic series that asks, what is the truth behind the greatest stories ever told?

Having been granted unprecedented access to four ancient skulls from the Holy Land, each episode seeks to accurately reconstruct a famous face. Travelling across the globe, archaeologists and scholars separate fact from myth, while a team of forensic anthropologists and artists put flesh on bone, using both traditional and state-of-the-art methods of facial reconstruction.


Hitler's Death Army - Das Reich

6 June 1944, D-Day. As the Allies storm the beaches of Normandy, Hitler orders the return of the Das Reich, the infamous Panzer elite division best known for its mass murders in the Ukraine and in Belarus, based at that time in southwest of France. Its mission: to push the Allies back into the Atlantic and turn the tide of the conflict in favor of the Germans. The SS division, with 15,000 men and more than 200 tanks, faces relentless attacks from the Resistance as it moves north through France. Along the way, it conducts vicious reprisals and massacres of civilians (Oradour-sur-Glane, Tulle). The film will retrace the last year of Hitler's death squad and their crimes against humanity. We will follow the everyday lives of these SS officers, their recruitment and training on the Eastern Front, and try to understand who exactly were these men who perpetrated the massacres.
