BREAKING INEQUALITY: WHY YOU WILL ALWAYS BE POOR
We live in a world where governments can create as much money as they want in order to fund all kinds of wasteful projects, wars, handouts, and banker bailouts. The current system by design has transferred the wealth from average everyday Americans to an elite few who care not about the majority.
DRONE ON: THE FUTURE OF UAV OVER THE US
From military weapons expos in Jordan to idyllic SoCal beaches, we caught up with some of those who are building and selling unmanned aerial vehicles all over the world, and even convinced a few companies to let us take their flying spy robots for a spin.
CAN WE HAVE UNLIMITED POWER?
We are the most power-hungry generation that has ever lived. This film tells the story of how that power has been harnessed – from wind, steam and from inside the atom. In the early years the drive for new sources of power was led by practical men who wanted to make money.
THE TRUE STORY OF THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS
Meet the deranged serial killers and the determined FBI agents who inspired one of Hollywood’s most terrifying thrillers and gave Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster the roles of a lifetime. We go behind the scenes at the FBI’s Behavioral Science Unit to meet the profilers who became the basis for Harris’s characters and to uncover the details of real-life murderers Ed Gein, Ted Bundy, and others.
LIFE IS IMPOSSIBLE
A look at how life began on Earth, exploring whether it evolved on the ground, in the sea or in space and considering the theory that it may have begun in the molten world below the ocean floor.
Archive is a documentary focused on the future of long-term digital storage, the history of the Internet and attempts to preserve its contents on a massive scale.
THE ART OF DATA VISUALIZATION
Humans have a powerful capacity to process visual information, skills that date far back in our evolutionary lineage. And since the advent of science, we have employed intricate visual strategies to communicate data, often utilizing design principles that draw on these basic cognitive skills.
The Chicago Sessions
Widely known philosopher and University of Chicago Law School professor Martha Nussbaum explores the ethical implications of the financial crisis during three sessions with a group of ten talented law and philosophy students. The grounds of the University of Chicago provide a compelling arena, since it is here that both economist Milton Friedman, staunch promoter of free market capitalism, and president Barack Obama, lectured.
From Glasgow to Detroit
Looking at Detroit, comparing and contrasting its experience with Glasgow, we will look at what has happened to a once prosperous city and see first hand how ordinary people have overcome official antagonism to their needs and created a vibrant system of farming.
Hackers World: Anonymous Investigation
Anonymous is a loosely associated hacktivist group. It originated in 2003, representing the concept of many online and offline community users simultaneously existing as an anarchic, digitized global brain.
