The Story of Us with Morgan Freeman

Why do some people rise to power and others do not? Why do we fall in love - not just with romantic partners but with friends and strangers? How has our need to share beliefs built human culture? National Geographic will seek to answer these big questions and many more. At a time when global events seem to be driving cultures apart, The Story of Us aims to reveal the common humanity that lies inside each one of us. Each of the six hourlong episodes will explore a single fundamental force or topic: freedom, peace, love, social division, power and rebellion. Along the way Freeman meets and speaks with powerful world leaders, ordinary people with extraordinary stories and everyone in between.

Mine Hunters

Renowned gem hunter Guy Clutterbuck is on a mission to find the world's most precious gems. To do this, he has assembled a specialist squad; an Aussie miner, an American engineer, an American gold prospector and explosives expert, and a British ex-Army mechanic. Together they'll travel to the farthest reaches of the globe to source small scale gem mines that produce rubies, emeralds, sapphires and all manners of precious stones. But gem mining has a shady reputation so Guy and his team plan to do things differently. They will find ethical mines, and working alongside the local miners, they'll combine their Western know-how with local knowledge to find these precious rough gems that the team can then buy, cut and sell for a profit. This is a high-stakes gem hunt that could make them, and the local communities working with them, a lot of money. Each mission is high risk, full of real life jeopardy and extreme environments. From the muddy pit mines of Madagascar and the spectacular emerald rich mountain caves of Colombia to the barren Arctic landscape of Greenland where blood red rubies spill across the rocky wasteland, the team will take on the elements, terrain, and even each other on their epic mission - crucially putting their own money and reputations on the line.

Southern Justice

The show explores the work of law enforcement agencies in Sullivan County, TN and Ashe County, NC, headed up by Sheriff Wayne Anderson and Sheriff James Williams, respectively. These sheriffs share a philosophy best described as "Andy Griffith in the 21st century," and are tasked with protecting these unique, close-knit communities, which often requires a mix of action and compassion. And if a peaceful solution proves impossible, both agencies are ready with SWAT teams to handle the most violent situations.
