Nearly every culture and religion seems to believe in some form of "Life after Life." Some people who have been near death report being bathed in images, sounds and feelings so vivid and so real that their lives are changed forever. But are these experiences real, or is it all just a strange last gasp of the human brain?

    The Haunted, Season 2 | Episode 7

    In every culture and for centuries, witnesses report strange encounters with apparitions, or ghosts. Believers point to the mountains of what they consider hard evidence: photographs of ghostly spirits, strange unexplainable voices, and objects flying across the room, as if thrown by unseen hands. But skeptics are just as convinced that there is nothing substantial to this phenomenon, and that belief in ghosts is unfounded. Are these spirits caught between this world and the next, or are they merely figments of wild imaginations?

    News Flash: Motorists planning a trip out of San Francisco this Labor Day weekend had better leave early and plan on getting home late… otherwise theyre in for the mother of all traffic jams. The city is closing down the Bay Bridge for four days in an attempt to pull off a miracle. This bridge is one of busiest in the country, carrying nearly 300,000 vehicles a day. And its about to be the site of one of the Worlds Toughest Fixes. The world was watching in 1989 when part of the Bay Bridge crumbled. Its been patched up since then, but theres a new trouble section … and if another earthquake hits, watch out. Engineers have already started building a brand new bridge alongside the old one, but theres a long way to go before its ready. For now, engineers have a short-term fix theyre cutting away a chunk of the old bridge and planning to connect it to the end of the new bridge. Its a massive fix… and it all comes down to one long weekend. With Riley on hand to watch, a huge team of construction workers and engineers will be working around the clock to cut out a piece of bridge almost as big as a football field … slide it out of the way… and roll in a piece of new roadway. Its rigging on a grand scale… with thousands of tons of steel being shifted into place… 150 feet over the bay. One slip and its big trouble. The stakes are enormous … and if the bridge isnt back up and running by the start of the workweek… itll be gridlock for the entire Bay area.

However in West Palm Beach, FL there is one surgeon who pushes the boundary of acceptable procedures having completed over 15,000 leg lengthening surgeries.

    9/11, Season 4 | Episode 1

    Tuesday, September 11, 2001, a temperate and nearly cloudless morning over the eastern United States. Millions of men and women ready themselves for work. Among them is an air traffic controller in Boston, Mass. Based on sheer intuition, he will break all protocol this morning, alerting the Air Force that a potential disaster is unfolding on his radar screen. Air Force Colonel Bob Marr, commander NEADS (North East Air Defense Sector] will scramble all he has to try and avert a catastrophe - but it will consist of only two F-15's that begin "searching for a needle in a haystack". Meanwhile, a group of 19 young men armed with simple box cutters literally fly under the radar into the World Trade Center , The Pentagon, and a Pennsylvania field. From the viewpoint of these two key theaters of action, Air Traffic Control and the U.S. Air Force, "Seconds From Disaster: 9/11" deconstructs, second-by-second, the tragic events and security lapses that led to the worst attacks on American soil since Pearl Harbor. The episode contains chilling testimony from the Air Force Colonel Bob Marr , Air Traffic Controller Dave Bottiglia, Ben Sliney, the man who makes the call to ground all the planes in the air over the U.S. and John Farmer Senior Counsel for the Presidential Commission. The question has to be asked: even on the day, could 9/11 been stopped?

That calm was abruptly shattered by the arrival of Imperial Japan's carrier taskforce that, in an unprecedented surprise attack, killed thousands and destroyed the American battleships that stood between Japan and its desire for a Pacific empire. This "day of infamy" seemed to be the most successful pre-emptive strike in history and a disaster for the United States. But was it? Seconds from Disaster takes a fresh look at one of history's greatest events and investigates whether the attack was in fact a fatal blow to Japan's quest for victory.
