Fed up
Narrated by Katie Couric, the film blows the lid off everything that was known about food and exercise, revealing a 30-year campaign by the food industry, aided by the U.S. government, to mislead and confuse the American public. Exposing the hidden truths contributing to one of the largest health epidemics in history, it follows a group of families battling to lead healthier lives and reveals why the conventional wisdom of 'exercise and eat right' is not ringing true for millions of people.

The Roosevelts : an intimate history
Profiles Theodore, Franklin, and Eleanor Roosevelt, three members of the most prominent and influential family in American politics. It is the first time in a major documentary television series that their individual stories have been interwoven into a single narrative. This seven-part, 14 hour film follows the Roosevelts for more than a century, from Theodore's birth in 1858 to Eleanor's death in 1962. Over the course of these years, Theodore would become the 26th President of the United States and his beloved niece, Eleanor, would marry his fifth cousin, Franklin, who became the 32nd President of the United States. Together, these three individuals not only redefined the relationship Americans had with their government and with each other, but also redefined the role of the United States within the wider world. The series encompasses the history the Roosevelts helped to shape: the creation of the National Parks, the digging of the Panama Canal, the passage of innovative New Deal programs, the defeat of Hitler, and the postwar struggles for civil rights at home and human rights abroad. It is also an intimate human story about love, betrayal, family loyalty, personal courage, and the conquest of fear.

Darwin's nightmare
The biggest tropical lake on earth, source of the river Nile, is Lake Victoria in western Tanzania. Deep in the heart of Africa--said to be the birthplace of humankind--is ground zero for the post-colonial exploitation of Africa by the developed world and the forces of globalization. Westerners introduced Nile perch into the lake in the 1960s. In the years since, it ate everything in sight, decimated 213 separate species, destroyed thousands of years of evolution, and turned the world's largest tropical lake into a barren sinkhole. This film examines the chilling chain of causality linking this catastrophe to the Tanzanian fish-processing industry, which relies on the wholesale netting, stripping, and shipping of these fish, while delivering few economic benefits to the Tanzanian people.
