Last Stand of the 300

This informative History Channel documentary chronicles the true story of some 300 Spartan soldiers who held their ground against an onslaught of Persian adversaries—an event that inspired director Zach Snyder‘s sleeper hit, 300. Digital animation combines with vivid, live-action footage to produce a stirring account of a pivotal battle that would change the course of the Western world. This is as good as the movie…well…not as good, but this is an awesome documentary. FOR SPARTA!

Life After People

Imagine what Earth would have been like without people. Based on expert research and featuring Industrial Light & Magic’s state-of-the-art imagery, this program reveals what the planet could be like centuries from now without human inhabitants. Stunning animations present the effect a human-free Earth would have on natural resources, plants and animals. The program also examines the fate of many man-made structures and makes you feel so small compared to the earth, nature and time.

Bomb It

Graffiti isn’t simple vandalism; it’s an artistic expression employed around the world. Filmmaker Jon Reiss travels five continents to reveal graffiti’s history, cultural impact and social relevance. Notable artists share their stories, bringing this vital form of expression out of the shadows. Makes me wish I lived in the ’80s.

Inside Deep Throat

This fascinating documentary by Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato examines the intense story behind iconic porn flick Deep Throat, which made more money than its producers anticipated and ignited a sexual and social revolution. Sex sells and now you can find out why.
