    It's the second largest city on earth - and the most important city in Brazil. More than 10 million people live in Sao Paulo. But fitting people isn't a problem. The challenge is the city's trash. Every day, Sao Paulo generates 14,000 tons of garbage -- the weight of the leaning Tower of Pisa. Sao Paulo has embarked on a green revolution by harnessing hectares of trash to produce energy. Aluminum cans are the most recycled object on earth, and Brazil leads the way when it comes not only to recycling them, but the speed at which it's done. This episode follows one aluminum can from the time it is picked by one of the catadores - the trash-pickers of São Paulo who make their living from collecting recyclables - through pressing, melting, and re-melting, to the moment it is ready to become a new can. State of the art technology combined with typical Brazilian ingenuity contributes not only to a clean environment, but to help poor citizens earn their living.

    It's the world's biggest city. It sprawls across more than 1,400 square kilometers. But for the 18 million people who live here, it's not just another metropolis. Mexico City is ground zero. This Mega-city violates the first rule of real estate: location. On one side: one of the world's most earthquake-prone hotspots. On the other: one of the world's most active volcanoes. And beneath their feet - a shaky foundation of landfill. To Mother Nature, Mexico City is one big target. And any moment, the Big One could hit. But against the most destructive force of nature, the city is tapping the power of science. From subways to freeways, Mexico City is harnessing cutting-edge technology to build in safety. Towering over the city is Latin America's tallest skyscraper - built to ride out an earthquake on giant shock absorbers. Most of all, the city is now armed with a slender line of defense: an earthquake detection system, built to give the city a one-minute warning before a quake arrives. Because today, the question isn't if another earthquake will hit - but when.

    When you think of gambling, you think Vegas…a manmade oasis in the middle of the desert. However, the secret behind Las Vegas is not the gambling…it's not connections…it's not even sex. This MegaCity's power is electricity…and without it, Vegas would shrivel and die. This is the Vegas no one sees. Power lines are its arteries. Electricity is its blood. We peel back the city's skin, expose its most vital organs, and go deeper than anyone's ever gone…into the MegaCity's beating heart. In a city built on risk, power is the window to the soul. Because keeping this MegaCity humming ... is the biggest gamble of all.

    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.

    Guerilla Gold Rush: The Spoils of War, 1

    For over half a century, civil war paralyzed Colombia and kept much of its wild lands frozen in time. In December 2016, that changed. The war that resulted in the deaths of 220,000 and displaced 6 million people came to an end. And the land wars began. With the FARC officially gone, the forests of Colombia are open for business. With the war ongoing in 2011, National Geographic Explorer correspondent Mariana van Zeller traveled to Colombia to investigate how the conflict was fueled by gold, with each side wanting their part of the riches. In 2018 Mariana returns, and finds the country even more chaotic. Hundreds of thousands of acres of pristine land is up for the taking, and both corporations and wildcatters want a piece. Today a new conflict arises: FARC has abandoned their forest mines and new armed factions have sprung up in the void, each vying for control of illegal gold that brings in $7 billion per year alone. The scramble for control is unleashing a new round of bloodshed. Illegal gold mining is the largest cause of deforestation in Colombia, and scores of activists and union leaders have been murdered. Through expert interviews and personal encounters Mariana finds that before the peace and after, Colombia's agile criminal underground will evolve and find a way to succeed.
