Discovery - Why Dogs Smile and Chimpanzees Cry
Are animals closer to humans on an emotional level than generally has been believed? The many scientists, researchers, wildlife
photographers, and other animal experts interviewed in this Discovery Channel video answer with a resounding yes. They make their case in
this 93-minute documentary, narrated by actress Sigourney Weaver, with stories of despondent dogs, grieving chimps, and lab rats who laugh
when tickled. The first half focuses on happy bonds between mother and child, siblings, and animals and humans. The second half delves
into the darker subjects of sadness and grief, offering astounding assertions such as elephants secrete a tearlike substance when upset
and search dogs finding only corpses in the Oklahoma City bombing case needed treatment for depression. While the focus is on mammals,
mollusks get some air time in the form of octopuses that appear to change color according to their situation. Backing up observations with
brain imaging and genetic testing, the scientists--and this film--make a compelling view for any animal lover. --Kimberly Heinrichs

Armageddon. It is a universal theme that has spanned centuries and cultures... and has, as some say, become increasingly more relevant today.
Surprisingly, however, a final chapter of this apocalyptic end has received little examination: the actual final battle between God and Satan, good and evil. The Bible points to a battlefield at Meggido in present day Israel, with each side taking a series of steps that will lead up to, and unfold, during this actual battle. What will this battle look like? Where do the stories come from, and how have they differed throughout history, between religions? God vs. Satan: The Final Battle will take viewers on a tour of the final days, and moments, as envisioned by believers of the three Abrahamic religions.
Hitlers Bodyguard is an explosive 13-part series from the makers of the acclaimed Churchills Bodyguard. Now for the first time thanks to previously never before seen SS records and images, the series provides a unique insight into the men that guard Hitler and explores one of the most enduring and unanswered questions surviving from World War II why, in 25 years, did no-one manage to kill Adolf Hitler?
Causing the deaths of 50million people, Adolph Hitler became one of the 20th centurys most iconic hate figures. Despised by those he persecuted, and even by some of his own commanders, Hitlers life was constantly in danger as he spread his tyranny throughout Europe. As he developed from shock politician to supreme leader of Nazi Germany, he collected a long list of enemies along the way.
Protecting Hitler was one of the worlds toughest jobs. During his time in power he survived over 40 attempts on his life thanks to his fearless bodyguards.
The series, narrated by Robert Powell, looks in greater detail at these plots, from Hitlers early political career where he knew he was a marked man to the infamous Stauffenberg plot. Hitlers Bodyguard also reveals why Churchill and Roosevelt did nothing to directly harm him or try to assassinate him.
