    Secrets of the Dead [#701] Aztec Massacre Four hundred skeletons have been unearthed in a newly discovered Aztec site near Mexico City. The bodies were found with knife cuts and teeth marks on their bones, indicating that the victims' flesh had been stripped off and eaten. It appears their still beating hearts were ripped out of their chests, and there are even cases where scratches on tiny bones indicate unborn babies were stabbed in their mothers' wombs. History books have always told that the Spanish were welcomed with open arms by the Aztecs, who thought they were their returning, white-skinned gods. But now, for the first time, there is indisputable evidence that not only did the Aztecs resist the conquistadors, they butchered, sacrificed and ate the Spanish invaders. Using forensic and archeological techniques, the program investigates how these Spanish colonists met their gruesome end. duration 54:06   STEREO TVPG-V (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Great Performances [#3409] In The Heights: Chasing Broadway Dreams In a journey reminiscent of the unexpected success of Hair, A Chorus Line and Rent, the story behind the success of In the Heights is so organic to New York City that no one expected it to happen. Beginning at a small, off-Broadway theater, a group of talented young artists led by composer-lyricist Lin-Manuel Miranda produced an original musical that some have called a modern day West Side Story -- a Latin and Hip-Hop --infused musical odyssey telling the story of a neighborhood and the first-generation Americans who call it home. And yet, many in the show's audiences have nothing to compare it to as it represents the first musical that they've journeyed below 125th Street to see. Opening on Broadway in spring 2008 and going on to win five Tony Awards -- including Best Musical -- this program follows the cast and creative team as they embark on the greatest adventure of their young careers. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG
