John Pilger's documentary goes to the heart of the struggle for democracy today. Britain's National Health Service, the NHS, was the world's first universal public health service. Designed to give millions of people freedom from fear, the NHS today is under threat of being sold off and converted to a free market model inspired by America's disastrous health insurance system, which results in the death every year of an estimated 45,000 people. Now President Trump says the NHS is on the table in any future trade deal with America. Filmed in Britain and the United States, this timely, compelling documentary touches us all and reveals what may be the last battle to preserve the most fundamental human right.

The first episode begins in the present day, where we meet Adnan's family and Rabia Chaudry, his fiercest advocate, who first brought Adnan's story to Sarah Koenig and inspired the cultural phenomenon that was the Serial podcast. We learn that since Serial, Adnan has filed a new appeal that could bring him back to court. From there, we go back in time to Baltimore County in 1999, when Hae Min Lee was murdered and Adnan Syed was convicted of the crime. We build to the climax of Adnan's arrest through multiple storylines - Hae's disappearance, Adnan and Hae's high school romance, and Rabia's present day fight to prove his innocence.

This film follows Britain's iconic prime minister, Winston Churchill, in the days before the D-day landings in June 1944. As Allied forces stand on the south coast of Britain, poised to invade Nazi-occupied Europe, they await Churchill's decision on whether the invasion will actually move ahead. Fearful of repeating his mistakes from World War I on the beaches of Gallipoli, exhausted by years of war, plagued by depression and obsessed with fulfilling historical greatness, Churchill is also faced with constant criticism from his political opponents, General Dwight D Eisenhower and Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery.

Twenty years after he helped put Jon Buice in a Texas prison, Ray Hill is fighting to free him. Filmed over the course of eight years, this film traces the friendship between a prominent gay rights activist and a convicted 'gay bash' murderer, set against the backdrop of gay rights, victims' rights, and prisoners' rights and the harsh Texas justice system. This film casts a fascinating spotlight on how the flaws of the system - and the court of public opinion - affect justice.
