    Pay Attention!, Season 1 | Episode 1

    The episode on 'attention' will be shot in the attention-demanding city of Las Vegas. Our guide for this episode's journey into the brain will be a master magician David Copperfield whose stock and trade is manipulating an audience's attention to produce amazing illusions.

And our scientific experts will draw on their insight into attention to create illusions rivaling those of the master magicians. Believe it or not, the bottleneck of attention that filters the flood if stimuli entering the brain is so limited, that a gorilla can walk through the room right in front of your eyes and you won't even see it…prepare to be amazed!

    Herod's Lost Tomb

    Herod the Great, king of the holy land in the time of Christ, is best known for the Massacre of the Innocents: the Gospel of Matthew's apocryphal slaughter of Bethlehem's male infants. But Herod's bloody reputation has always hidden another side of one of the Bible's greatest villains. He was an architectural mastermind of breathtaking proportions. Herod built more and larger monuments than virtually anyone in ancient times, perhaps in all time. Now, Israeli archeologist Ehud Netzer claims to have found Herod's most intimate creation of all - his burial tomb. At his self-named palace-fortress Herodium, Herod's Lost Tomb explores Netzer's decades-long search for the King of the Jews' fabulously carved mausoleum and coffin. With in-depth examination of classic Herodian sites such as Masada, Caesarea, and Jerusalem's Second Temple, we probe deep into the architectural brilliance of one of history's most despised men.
