Weather or Not (52 x half hour) is an exhilarating documentary series that puts you in the path of nature’s fury. It can strike without warning, with a ferocity that no one could have anticipated, and only one thing is certain: it cannot be stopped. Weather or Not investigates the most notorious, terrifying and deadly natural weather disasters that the world has ever seen. With chilling detail, each standalone episode takes you moment-by-moment through the events of two real-life extreme disasters: from their early warnings, to the discovery of the last remaining survivors.
Motive to Murder (78 x half hour) is an international exploration of some of the world’s most fascinating murder cases. We read about them in the morning papers, see them on the evening news – but what do we really know about the people who are capable of cold-blooded murder? And what of the men and women who go to extraordinary lengths to bring these killers to justice? Motive to Murder takes a fascinating, fast-paced and forensic look into some of the real-life murder cases that have made headlines around the world: from crimes of passion and opportunistic slayings, to motiveless murders and acts of terrorism.
Autopsy of a Murder (52 x half hour) is a heart-racing narrated series where forensic pathologists use autopsies to reconstruct a crime and solve a murder. Each episode begins with the biggest clue of all: the body. We show how evidence from an autopsy can lead to the identification of a prime suspect. Experts in the fields of pathology, forensics, and law enforcement are interviewed to show how investigators crack a case when the body is the only piece of direct evidence available, and features archival footage, real evidence and convincing reenactments of true crimes.
In Murderous Mistresses (52 x half hour), when men stray, they pay. Featuring impassioned murder cases from around the world, the women have it in for their men as wives of cheating husbands, aggrieved mistresses and girlfriends out for revenge cause carnage. Each episode of Murderous Mistresses tells the steamy story of a love affair that goes wrong and leads to murder.
