Ice Road RescueIce Road Rescue

The mountain passes of Norway are some of the most dangerous roads in all of Europe. And when winter hits, the transport roads turn into treacherous bobsleigh tracks with trucks and cars skidding and sliding everywhere, blocking vital trade routes and in extreme cases, causing fatal accidents. But never fear, up and down Norway there are brigades of brave rescue workers, who work around the clock to keep the roads safe and open. It takes a special breed of men to pull off the perfect 'Ice Road Rescue'...from a driver smuggling nappies (of all things!) out of Norway, to a truck in trouble full of fresh fish threatening to go bad – the rescue teams of Norway have their work cut out in this nail-biting series!

Original SinOriginal Sin

The show looks at the "sexual revolution" of the past half-century and how it has affected culture, science, and politics, here and around the world. Original Sin will touch on how sex on the Internet has collapsed traditional notions of privacy - hello Ashley Madison - and, of course, sexting. The series also will detail the campaign against sex robots in the UK, the Japanese bars where women can have a cocktail while enjoying a vibrator, and Thailand's move to include the term "third gender" in its constitution for the first time in an effort to ensure transgender and gay communities their legal rights.


Hitler and Churchill : The Eagle and the LionHitler and Churchill : The Eagle and the Lion

Winston Churchill and Adolf Hitler: the "old lion" against the "German eagle". The "bear of Downing Street" versus "der Wolf." Two radically contradictory personalities whose enmity represented the 20th century as the "age of extremes." On one side is Winston Churchill, one of the most revered men of the century. His humor, style, self-deprecation and audacity in the face of adversity is still regarded as a prime example of leadership and political courage. He is one of the most popular political leaders of all time. On the other side is Adolf Hitler, certainly the most hated leader in contemporary history. His very presence, his regime and his ideas represent fear, xenophobia, racism, and a hatred for humanity. From 1940 to 1945, these two vastly contradictory personalities thought of nothing else but how to destroy each other. For the first time, a film tells the story of this clash of the giants from their common experience in the trenches of the First World War until the end of World War II. An imposing film all from the archives, brimming with life, plot twists and dramatic turns of events, based on meticulously colored and remastered images.
