    Muhammad: Legacy of a Prophet This special tells the story of the 7th-century prophet who changed world history in 23 years and continues to shape the lives of more than 1.2 billion people. This lively, thorough and honest portrait of the man and the prophet takes viewers to ancient Arabian sites where Muhammad's story unfolded and into the homes, mosques and workplaces of some of America's approximately seven million Muslims to discover the many ways in which they follow Muhammad's example. With some of the world's leading scholars on Islam providing historical context and critical perspective, viewers learn not only who Muhammad was, but also what most American Muslims believe Islam teaches and how their beliefs are increasingly shaping society. Actor Andre Braugher narrates. duration 1:54:41   STEREO TVG

They also emerged as one of the most powerful political lobbies in the state. This episode weighs the impact of gaming on Indian self-determination and explores the challenges native peoples face in defining their identity for the future. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

    In Search of Shakespeare [#101] A Time of Revolution Using new evidence from spies' reports, local archives and even a coded prison diary, Michael Wood uncovers the dark side of Shakespeare's world, tracing William's early days, his schooling, his father's shady business deals and the dark secret that ruined the family. Finally, Wood untangles the riddle of William's shotgun marriage, which left him a teenage father with decidedly slim career prospects. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

    Walking the Bible [#101] Go Forth: From Creation to Abraham Bruce and Avner's quest takes them first to the birthplace of civilization, the banks of the Tigris and Euphrates - the Garden of Eden. Feiler and Goren climb Mt. Ararat in search of Noah's ark and travel to the ancient town where some believe Abraham was born, then to the ancient ruins of Harran, where the Bible says God tells Abraham to "go forth" to the Promised Land. Following Abraham's path back to Jerusalem, Feiler and Goren stop to explore the sulfurous land by the Dead Sea, with its salt pillars called "Lot's wife." Could this be dramatic evidence of Sodom and Gomorrah? The episode ends at Jerusalem's sacred Temple Mount, where it's believed Abraham brought his son Isaac and prepared to follow God's ultimate test of faith. Feiler realizes that his unchartered spiritual landscape now beckons as strongly as his geographic adventure. duration 55:07   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)
