Join us on an extraordinary journey, that will explore the technological and scientific struggle for the survival of Venice, a survival that has been in doubt from its very construction. The sea level in Venice has increased drastically in the last century or so, threatening the very existence of the city. Global warming and the harmful effects of tourism have amplified the phenomenon of acqua alta (sudden rise in sea level), rendering the traditional responses of inhabitants obsolete. It is urgent to act today. Projects conceived in laboratories across the globe are joining forces to save the city. These include RAMSES, a 3D modelisation of the lagoon produced using lasers, which analyses rises in water level; and MOSE, a series of movable dams costing over 4 billion euros, intended to block the sea in case of acqua alta.

Giant media conglomerates are increasingly reluctant to investigate or criticise government policies. With state surveillance never more extreme, independent voices are crucially important. All Governments Lie is a theatrical documentary created by a team of Emmy Award-winning filmmakers who subscribed to IF Stone's newsletter in their teens. IF Stone's Weekly inspired them then, and compels them now to tell the story of a new wave of independent, investigative, adversarial journalists following in Stone's footsteps.

Every era begins with the human will to move, and History uncovers the great forces that set mankind in motion. It's an epic, premium, global documentary about the greatest migrations of all time, and the repercussions that they have had - culturally, sociologically, and politically. Sparked by the Industrial Revolution, a wave of migrants flood the US. One-third of the entire population of Norway and Sweden migrate to America, transforming the Pacific Northwest; opened by the transcontinental railroad, Mennonite farmers from Ukraine turn Kansas into the breadbasket of the country; in 1908, more Italians were living in New York City than Rome. Spanning the 1900s through the 1970s, this episode reveals how our ancestors, coming from America's own Southern states, Eastern Europe, Latin America and Asia, change America's cityscapes forever, and directly influence the map of modern America.
