    Nova [#4008H] Mind of a Rampage Killer What makes a person walk into a theater or a church or a classroom full of students and open fire? What combination of circumstances compels a human being to commit the most inhuman of crimes? Can science in any way help us understand these horrific events and provide clues as to how to prevent them in the future?
    As the nation tries to understand the tragic events at Newtown, Miles O'Brien separates fact from fiction, investigating new theories that the most destructive rampage killers are driven most of all, not by the urge to kill, but the wish to die. Could suicide and the desire to go out in a media-fueled blaze of glory be the main motivation? How much can science tell us about a brain at risk for violence? Most importantly, can we recognize dangerous minds in time - and stop the next Newtown?

  • MORNING
  • 6:00 am
    Into The Wild: Edison, Ford & Friends Between 1914 and 1924, a group of famous friends - prolific inventor Thomas Edison, pioneering auto-maker Henry Ford, best-selling nature writer John Burroughs, and later, tire manufacturer Harvey Firestone - traveled to the remote reaches of Florida's Everglades in search of a rustic camping adventure far from the pressures of work and the press. Freed from the demands of daily life, the friends and their entourage enjoyed the serendipity of life on the road, stopping to help farmers in the field, examining streams for hydroelectric possibilities or engaging in an impromptu tree-chopping contest. This documentary features excerpts from the journals and letters of Burroughs and Firestone as well as interviews with historians and biographers. Combined with historic family photographs,vintage press footage and period music, it offers insight into the famous friends and a rare glimpse of the men behind their public personas. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG
  • 6:30 am
    Untold Stories: Mina Miller Edison, The Wizard's Wife Mina Miller Edison, while perhaps best-known as Thomas Edison's wife, was a remarkable woman in her own right. Mina's diary entries hint at a side of the prolific inventor not always seen by the public, while her personal - and often candid - letters to friends and family reflect her own struggles and accomplishments. This program explores Mina's direct and lasting impact, specifically on the Edison's winter estate in Fort Myers, Florida and their Glenmont estate in New Jersey. Like the private and public gardens she sowed and tended, Mina Miller Edison's charity work planted the seeds for growth, change and beautification that can still be seen today. duration 26:46   TVG
  • 7:00 am
    Secrets of the Dead [#904H] Japanese Supersub Spring, 1946. Ten months after the end of World War II, an explosion rocked the Pacific off the coast of Hawaii. America had just destroyed one of Japan's most advanced weapons systems. But this was no belated attack against the defeated Japanese. Rather, it was an attempt to keep an advanced, top-secret submarine out of the hands of the Russians. What was this sub and where had it come from? This program investigates, revealing the startling story of Japan's successful creation of a technological masterpiece-an aircraft carrier submarine that could blow up the Panama Canal, reach the US main land undetected, and unleash panic-inducing air attacks on American civilians. How close did Japan's secret sub come to attacking America? And how did America's own top-secret super-weapon put an end to the Japanese threat? duration 54:47   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)
