Documentary details the story behind the 1959 Marquette County, Michigan on-location filming of Otto Preminger’s classic courtroom drama, Anatomy of a Murder. Preminger’s filim was based on a 1958 bestselling book by Ispheming, Michigan native John Voelker, a local attorney who used the pen name Robert Traver. Traver’s fictionalized narrative examined the true-life story of an alleged rape, killing and subsequent jury trial that occurred in Marquette County in 1952. In this 2009 documentary, surviving cast members share their memories about the filming, and new research uncovers little-known facts about the film and the original court trial.

Pictured: Pavarotti at Madison Square Garden Great Performances
“Pavarotti: A Voice for the Ages”

Like Enrico Caruso before him, Luciano Pavarotti extended his presence far beyond the limits of Italian opera. Quickly establishing his rich sound as the great male operatic voice of the 20th century, he expanded his reach to stadium concerts and pop collaborations that brought him fame beyond measure. Audiences adored his larger than life personality, childlike charm, generous figure and happy go lucky style. This program celebrates the 50th anniversary since the launch of the international phenomenon. In 1963, he debuted in Amsterdam, Vienna, Zurich and finally London. Even today, it is his powerful sound, with its natural grace and brilliant color, that still leads many to consider him the world’s greatest voice. Pavarotti brought opera to the masses and made football fans worldwide fall in love with “Nessun dorma.” This program includes that hit and other arias from La Boheme, Rigoletto and Aida; Neapolitan songs in arrangements by Henry Mancini, including “Mamma” and “O Sole Mio”; and popular duets with Bono, Sting, Vanessa Williams and Eric Clapton.

Pictured: allied soldiers going ashore Day of Days: June 6, 1944
On June 6, 1944, thousands of Allied servicemen landed on the shores of northern France, tasked with liberating western Europe from Nazi tyranny. Over the ensuing hours and days, the men faced decimating machine-gun fire, mortars and artillery, eventually fighting their way inland, but not before suffering a staggering number of casualties. To commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Normandy landing, four D-Day veterans gather at the famed Museum of World War II outside of Boston, Mass. to share their experiences from that fateful "Day of Days." Cameras eavesdrop on their conversations as they vividly recall details from their ordeal — from the perils of the amphibious assault to the invasion's gruesome aftermath. Their interactions with one another yield long-buried, and often painful, memories. They recount their transformations from boys to men, reveal their uneasiness with the term "hero," and grapple with why they survived when so many others did not.

This documentary features the story of the dramatic recovery of the critically endangered Kemp's ridley sea turtle in the Gulf of Mexico. Illegal poaching at nesting beaches in Mexico and deadly shrimp trawls in the Gulf of Mexico cut the estimated 47,000 nesters to less than 500 nesting females in 1985, nearly driving them to extinction. Scientists also attribute their decline to coastal habitat destruction and the massive 1979 Ixtoc oil spill in Mexico offshore their main nesting beach. Thanks to grassroots conservation efforts, modifications to shrimp trawl fisheries, and bi-national efforts to protect nesting beaches, the Kemp's ridley population has slowly grown. The devastation and uncertainty for the future of the Kemp's ridley following the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico are captured in vivid footage, photographs, and interviews.

A modern day quest to find the truth behind one of exploration’s greatest mysteries: What happened to famed adventurer Col. Percy Fawcett who went looking for a city of gold — the Lost City of “Z” — in the Amazon in 1925 and disappeared in the jungles of Brazil forever? New archaeological digs, the science behind the discovery of “newly found” jungle cities and clues collected over the years reveal Fawcett’s fate. The program unravels the truth of what really happened to Fawcett, and shares surprising finds that are causing experts to re-think the image of a pristine uninhabited Amazon rainforest: a place that, before Columbus, may have had large populations living in sophisticated towns and cities. Fawcett may have actually discovered these ruins, fueling his fervor to find the city of gold. The myth becomes reality!

“Fortress of the Bears”

Part of the massive Tongass National Forest, Admiralty Island in southeast Alaska supports the largest concentration of bears anywhere in the world. Sustained by a wealth of salmon streams, isolated and protected by their environment, some 1,700 Alaskan brown bears are part of a unique circle of life that has played out here for centuries. Beginning in August, millions of salmon — pink and chum, coho and sockeye — return to the island to spawn, providing a feast for the bears, eagles, orcas, sea lions and even the trees. As long as the salmon continue to arrive, all is well. But this year, the salmon fail to arrive for the first time, and the bears get a bitter taste of what the future may hold.

Between the blue sky above us and the infinite blackness of space lies a frontier full of enigmas that scientists have only just begun to investigate. “At the Edge of Space” takes viewers on a spectacular exploration to probe the earth-space boundary zone, home to some of nature’s most puzzling and alluring phenomena: the shimmering aurora, streaking meteors, and fleeting flashes that shoot upwards from thunderclouds, known as sprites. Discovered in 1989, sprites have eluded capture because they flicker into existence for a mere split-second — 40 times faster than an eye blink. NOVA rides with scientists in a high-flying weather observation plane as they hunt for sprites and finally succeed in snaring them in 3D video, gaining vital clues to unravel their mystery.

“When I Walk”

Jason DaSilva was 25 years old and a rising independent filmmaker when a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis changed everything — and inspired him to make another film. “When I Walk” is a candid and brave chronicle of one young man’s struggle to adapt to the harsh realities of M.S. while holding on to his personal and creative life. With his body growing weaker, DaSilva’s spirits, and his film, get a boost from his mother’s tough love and the support of Alice Cook, who becomes his wife and filmmaking partner. The result is a life-affirming documentary filled with unexpected moments of joy and humor.

The earthquake that hit the northern coast of Japan on March 11, 2011, was recorded at magnitude 9.0 — the worst ever recorded in Japan. It generated an unprecedented tsunami, obliterating coastal villages and towns in a matter of minutes. In some areas, the tsunami climbed over 100 feet in height and traveled miles inland. Amazingly, amateur and professional photographers captured it all on video, including remarkable tales of human survival, as ordinary citizens became heroes in a drama they never could have imagined. Their stories are captured in video and retold after-the-fact by the survivors who reveal what they were thinking as they made their life-saving decisions.
