Resurrecting Richard III (#1306H) Duration: 55:46 STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

In 2011, a group of amateur historians made an incredible archaeological find: the bones of King Richard III, hunchbacked, with an arrow through the spine. Richard is considered the most evil king to have ruled England - and a fearsome warrior as well, despite the extreme curvature of his spine. Now, scientists are testing the bones to find out more about the king and also conducting experiments to determine whether Richard could have fought so ferociously in battle with such a severe deformity.

The Mona Lisa Mystery (#1305H) Duration: 56:46 STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

It is the most famous painting in the world, created by the hand of a genius, and marveled at by millions every year in the Louvre in Paris. But the Mona Lisa has a secret history. Using sophisticated scientific analysis we could now solve one of the greatest mysteries in art history: is the Mona Lisa the world knows so well the original version? Or had Leonardo da Vinci painted an earlier version of the iconic portrait?
