The first documentary to show original color footage of World War II in immersive HD, WWII IN HD uses the journals and accounts of those who served in the war’s biggest battles to create a personal, introspective and detailed look at life on and off the front lines. Follow 12 unforgettable Americans, and experience the war through their eyes, in their own words, as it really looked and sounded.

THE PRESIDENTS : Based on James McPherson’s Pulitzer prize winning book, To the Best of My Ability, THE PRESIDENTS is the most comprehensive documentary series ever filmed about the presidency, chronicling all 44 Commanders in Chief — from George Washington to Barack Obama. This definitive and comprehensive eight-part series, narrated by actor Edward Herrmann, shares the stories of the distinctive individuals who have guided America throughout its history—their powerful personalities, weaknesses, and major achievements. Featuring rare and unseen photographs and footage, unexpected insight and trivia from journalists, scholars, and politicians such as Walter Cronkite, David Brinkley, Wesley Clark, Bob Dole, and former President Jimmy Carter, the Presidency has never seemed more compelling and human. As the 2012 election cycle gets into high gear, A+E Networks has beautifully repackaged this best-selling set, now 50% slimmer, and included a bonus DVD – the feature-length documentary “All the Presidents’ Wives”, as well as a tour of national historic sites and rare presidential artifacts. Viewed within the changing contexts of each administration, this four-DVD set offers unparalleled insight into the men who have presided over the Oval Office.
ANCIENT ALIENS: SEASON THREE : Another season of alien intervention belongs to HISTORY, and in ANCIENT ALIENS: SEASON THREE the top-rated unearths new discoveries and evidence, including sightings and phenomena from ancient times to the present. From the age of dinosaurs to ancient Egypt, from early cave drawings to continued mass sightings in the U.S., each of Season Three’s 16 episodes lends historic depth to the questions, speculations, controversies, firsthand accounts and grounded theories surrounding an age-old debate. Did intelligent life forms from outer space visit Earth thousands of years ago? And do they visit us now? HISTORY ignites the inquiry while exploring possible connections between UFO phenomena and information decoded from ancient texts and artifacts.
TITANIC: THE COMPLETE STORY : The “unsinkable” Titanic was a dream come true: Four city blocks long and a passenger list worth 250 million dollars. But on her maiden voyage in April 1912, that dream became a nightmare when the giant ship struck an iceberg and sank in the cold North Atlantic. More than 1,500 lives were lost in one of the greatest disasters of the 20th century. Now, as the 100th anniversary of the sinking approaches this April, the complete sensational history of the premier liner is recounted in TITANIC: THE COMPLETE STORY, now repackaged and re-priced for ultimate collectability. Using newsreels, stills, diaries, and exclusive interviews with survivors, TITANIC: THE COMPLETE STORY charts the fateful history of the ship and its passengers as well as providing an overview on the popular culture phenomenon that this tragedy has become. The complete story is recounted across three 3 feature-length programs: DEATH OF A DREAM, which brings viewers to the christening of the largest ship ever built, before a cheering Irish crowd of 100,000; then, witness the disaster this trek becomes as numerous iceberg warnings go unheeded and the ship sinks in the icy North Atlantic; THE LEGEND LIVES ON chronicles the stunning sinking, as over-crowded lifeboats edge away from the crippled liner and futile SOS signals flare into the night, leaving 1,500 passengers to a watery grave; and, TITANIC’S ACHILLES HEEL, which follows elite divers as they explore the explosive theory that the doomed liner may have had a fatal design flaw in this doc that utilizes advanced CGI technology, archive documents and photographs, as well as footage from modern-day expeditions.
