Monster Fish 3: Raging Amazon
Premieres Wed, 18 Aug @ 09:00pm (TH)

Aquatic ecologist Dr. Zeb Hogan teams up with kayaking expert Trip Jennings and a team of Brazilian scientists to tackle the Rio Roosevelt in western Brazil. They'll battle the river's deadly rapids in an effort to complete a comprehensive survey of one of the Amazon's most remote jungle rivers, and discover what monster fish are lurking beneath the surface of this 400 mile-long river. Pressures like logging and dams are believed to be destroying critical fish habitat throughout the region. His journey is an important look at what might be lost if these pressures reach the pristine Rio Roosevelt.

Monster Fish 3: River Invasion
Premieres Wed, 25 Aug @ 09:00pm (TH)

They're fish that fly. They are carp from Asia now popping up in America's waterways like zombie attackers from a B-movie. They can jump 10 feet in the air at the sound of a boat motor, turning a day on the water into a boxing match. Bighead and silver carp were first imported into the U-S in the early 1970s. They soon escaped. Now they are in almost half the American states and are on the march toward Canada. Aquatic Ecologist Zeb Hogan is literally dodging flying fish as he tries to discover why these invaders are taking over and if there's anything we can do to stop them.

Premieres Wed, 18 Aug @ 08:00pm (TH)

In 2007 a family of five elephants is found dead in mysterious circumstances in the Indian state of West Bengal. The authorities investigating the case attribute the deaths to a lightning strike, but research reveals humans and elephants are at war over the limited resources and the suspicion is the animals have been killed on purpose. Locals believe it is punishment from the Gods. Scientists have no explanation. These mysterious deaths were the first of their kind and left local people and wildlife officials baffled and frightened.

Predator CSI 2: Jaws slayer
Premieres Wed, 25 Aug @ 08:00pm (TH)

The great white shark and the killer whale are the most formidable predators in the sea. Animals so dangerous, they would never challenge each other or so we thought. One morning, off the Californian coast, a boatload of tourists witnessed the ultimate clash of the titans. The outcome left biologists mystified, but now, with the help of a team of experts, we re-examine this extraordinary incident, and reveal an astonishing new perspective on the relationship between the oceans top two top predators.

Dive Detectives: Lost A-bombs
Premieres Sun, 8 Aug @ 09:00pm (TH)

Perched on the precipice of the deepest spot in the world, the tiny South Pacific island of Tinian played a critical role during World War II when it was chosen as the top-secret assembly and launch point for the atomic bombs Fat Man and Little Boy. Deployed in August 1945, those bombs helped end the war, but what isn’t well known is that the United States was prepared to drop more atomic bombs if the Japanese hadn’t surrendered. Tinian was positioned to be a veritable bomb factory, with equipment on hand to create dozens more Fat Man bombs. The Dive Detectives join forces with a Los Alamos physicist and bomb-maker who believes that much of this top-secret material was dumped in the waters around Tinian during the hasty transition from war to peace. The Fletchers scour the jungle and ocean in their search for the remnants of these rare super-weapons.

Dive Detectives: Rogue Wave
Premieres Sun, 15 Aug @ 09:00pm (TH)

On the night of November 10, 1975, the Great Lakes freighter Edmund Fitzgerald sailed into a fierce winter storm and vanished. There were no witnesses and no survivors. More than 30 years later, her sinking remains one of the world’s great maritime mysteries. Using new advances in marine technology and storm science, the Dive Detectives challenge the official U.S. Coast Guard findings. Their investigation takes them across Lake Superior and to bone-chilling depths, ultimately revealing another potential cause of the disaster: a giant "rogue wave." The Fletchers investigation proves these towering freak waves, once dismissed as a sailor’s myth, exist on the Great Lakes and may have triggered the sinking. The Dive Detectives bring their evidence to one of the worlds most advanced ship simulators, where they reconstruct the Fitzgerald’s final hours including the harrowing encounter with a rogue wave.

Dive Detectives: Warships Down
Premieres Sun, 22 Aug @ 09:00pm (TH)

In order to unlock the ships secrets, the Dive Detectives must brave the areas wild seas and conduct a challenging penetration dive into the heart of the mysterious vessel. As they piece together the leads, both above and below the waves, the team also learns of an environmental crisis threatening the beauty and abundance of the Saba Bank, one of the world’s largest coral atolls. Can the Dive Detectives solve the mystery of the Ghost Ship in this endangered paradise?

Paranatural: Chupacabra
Premieres Fri, 20 Aug @ 09:00pm (TH)

In the mid-90's, a series of mysterious livestock killings in Puerto Rico puzzles the island's inhabitants. Farmers wake up to find their chickens, pigs, and goats dead but not eaten. The deaths all seem to have one thing in common: the animals appear to have been drained of blood through puncture wounds to their necks. The killings continue for weeks, and eyewitnesses claim to encounter the strange monster responsible. They describe it as an ugly reptilian creature that stands like a kangaroo. Spikes run down its back, and large fangs protrude from its mouth. They say it's large, predatory eyes glow red. Despite the large number of killings and sightings, investigators never capture the creature, and the case goes cold until similar attacks occur in the United States. In Texas, where a large amount of the new attacks take place, eyewitnesses spot a strange, dog-like creature. It appears hairless, and while it runs on all fours unlike the monster reported in Puerto Rico, it also possesses vicious fangs that add to its bizarre appearance. People wonder if this unusual predator is the real Chupacabra. As luck would have it, ranchers and farmers start to discover the remains of this weird canine, and these are sent to scientists to study in an effort to get the bottom of the Chupacabra mystery.

Storm Worlds: Deadly Dust
Premieres Sat, 28 Aug @ 09:00pm (TH)

What would happen if a Martian dust storm came down to earth? A dust storm is not a purely alien form of weather. Its something we have in common with Mars. As far back as Darwin, scientists were finding dust, which they suspected came from Africa, in unexpected places. Today we find that dust from the peaks of snowy mountains, to the depths of the ocean and everywhere in between. And with it come microbes. Now, as human exploration of Mars creeps closer, exhaustive testing is underway to ensure that astronauts are protected from the dust storms that rage there. Through their research we are not only preparing to face those extra-terrestrial storms, we are also learning about how to deal with and understand dust storms on earth. As we follow a trail of dust around the globe, we experience the terrifying impact on Earth a Martian dust storm, though cutting edge CGI.

Riding Britain Britain’s Railways: Steam Revolution
Premieres Mon, 30 Aug @ 09:00pm (TH)

Steam power and steam railways helped transform 19th century Britain into the world's first industrial nation. In this first episode, Dan explores the earliest steam railways and their links to the burgeoning Lancashire cotton industry, discovering how railway pioneers George and Robert Stephenson created the first regular rail service from Manchester to Liverpool in 1830. Travelling down 200 year-old tunnels deep under the Pennines, Dan learns how scores of construction workers risked life and limb to construct the extraordinary networks of tracks, viaducts, bridges and tunnels that developed into the modern rail network. And he reveals how the early railway magnates won and lost fortunes in the investment bonanza that became known as Railway Mania and which created Britain’s modern rail network.

Britain's Greatest Machines With Chris Barrie 2

Chris Barrie takes on the famous high speed banking at the worlds first purpose built racing circuit in a 1920s Bentley, races against a plane on a 1925 Brough Superior motorcycle and then takes to the air in a De Havilland Moth the tiny aircraft beloved of the aerial explorers, which helped pioneer the commercial air routes we still use today.

The 1920s was the decade that forged the modern petrol-centered world we now live in. When it started petrol was only sold in tins from the chemist. Yet, by the time it ended, there were 60000 garage forecourts up and down the country supplying the petrol for the millions of new vehicles on Britain’s roads. With a powerful empire, Britain controlled half the world’s oil reserves but needed a way of transporting all that oil. Chris drives a Scammell Pioneer the giant off-road log and pipe carrying vehicle that was essential to building long distance pipelines. This was an era in which engineers began to see no limits to what could be achieved with new technology. But one great machine was a dream too far: inside one of the largest buildings ever constructed, Chris relives the extraordinary and tragic story of what was then the largest flying machine on the planet the R101 airship.

Lockdown 5
Popular series Lockdown returns for a fifth season, with four new episodes looking at life behind bars in some of the toughest jails in the US.
Lockdown 5: Chaos control
Premieres Fri, 6 Aug @ 09:00pm (TH)

Forget Midwestern hospitality at the St Louis County Jail. Built in 1998 and rededicated in 2004, this downtown facility processes over 30,000 arrestees each year. From drunk drivers and drug dealers to petty thieves and killers, they all pass through this municipal high-rise on their way to facing a judge. For the officers on the ground, that means seeing approximately 600 people every week - many of whom are inebriated and angry when they first arrive. Jail is the last place they want to be and they are not shy about sharing that information - at the top of their voices! Some of them even try to confront the officers. That's a mistake they'll soon regret. Still, these angry and often difficult prisoners must be booked, interviewed, strip-searched and processed. Some are middle class, some are poor, some are thugs and some appear to be crazy. Yet they're all held together in an open central booking area until they are assigned a cell. It forces the officers to constantly be on alert, since anything can happen at any time. It's highly dangerous, as officers will tell us, especially without the help of shackles and bars. All hope to go free soon but, for many, that's just an illusion. Meanwhile, they'll have to make their way through County Jail without getting hurt or hurting anybody else - inmate or officer. Find out how tough it is to do time in America's heartland in Lockdown: St Louis County Jail.

Lockdown 5: Inside a Mexican prison
Premieres Fri, 13 Aug @ 09:00pm (TH)

Nuevo Laredo lies just a few miles south of the US-Mexico border, across the Rio Grande from Laredo, Texas. It's a major hot spot in the drug war - a border town known for its chilling violence and rampant corruption. And it's the perfect home for a notorious Mexican prison known as Cedes. Like other Mexican prisons, Cedes has earned a frightening reputation for violence over the years. In 2005, two American brothers jailed on homicide charges were found stabbed to death in their cells. Only a month before that, a gang shootout erupted on a basketball court, leaving one inmate dead and several others injured. The next day, two other inmates were stabbed to death and one was shot, caught in a barrage of 30 bullets. Guards later recovered six pistols and an AK-47 in inmate cells. Many of the inmates here are members of drug cartels and gangs like the Mexican Mafia. They are segregated from other prisoners yet their influence is felt throughout the prison. At Cedes, nobody ever talks 'politics' or about violence behind bars. To do so would be to risk reprisals. A substantial number of prisoners here have served time in both American and Mexican prisons and many prefer life at Cedes, largely because of the astonishing amount of freedom they are given. The visitation policy is also unlike anything found in the United States. Inmates can meet with their loved ones in an open picnic area from 9am to 5pm, six days a week. In some cases conjugal visits are allowed in special private rooms. Officers believe that these perks reduce tensions inside the prison and ease the prisoners' transition to the outside world. But as we'll learn from the warden and officers, along with these freedoms comes constant danger. The threat of serious violence is present every second of every day. And as we'll find out first-hand, keeping Cedes under control, even on a good day, is no easy task.

Mega breakdown
Mega breakdown: Space Shuttle Booster
Premieres Thu, 5 Aug @ 08:00pm (TH)

Join the team who recover and reassemble the Solid Rocket Boosters (SRBs) that launch the space shuttle into orbit. Technicians, seamen, and engineers catch, recover, and rebuild these critical vehicles, making sure that they are safe to fly every time they are bolted to the side of the launch vehicle. If they don’t get every detail exactly right, disaster can occur: on January 28, 1986, NASA lost seven astronauts in the Challenger disaster as a result of a small fault in one of the SRBs. The risks to those who carry out the SRB work are less publicized but very real, and the job demands everything from open water dive operations to working with high explosives. The launch lasts just minutes, but it’s only the beginning of a process where the lives of astronauts and the health of the entire space program hang in the balance.

Chimps: Nearly Human
Premieres Sun , 29 Aug @ 08:00pm (TH)

In the sweltering heart of Senegal, in a place called Fongoli, a chimpanzee performs an earth-shattering act: she strips a branch of its leaves, chews the tip into a point, and jams the tool into a hole in a tree, killing a bushbaby. In short, she has been spear-hunting -- making tools and using them to hunt. Only humans are supposed to be capable of that. And Fongoli's scrubby mixture of woodland and savanna may mirror the ancient place where we may have taken our first steps - literally - towards being human. Are the chimps of Fongoli giving us a window into the lives of our earliest ancestors?
