    Nightly Business Report [#32177] Tonight on Nightly Business Report, an influential highway safety group put small cars to the test. The results are prompting new concerns for automakers and drivers. And instead of buying American, some are calling on Americans to buy imports as a way to boost the economy. NBR will meet a small business owner who's taking that approach and growing his business as part of our special series "Made in America". duration 26:46   STEREO TVRE (Secondary audio: none)

  • 2:00 am
    Secrets of the Dead [#903] Mumbai Massacre On November 26, 2008, what began as a typical day in a buzzing cosmopolitan city devolved into a nightmare of explosions, gunfire and death when terrorists attacked. The world watched in horror as the escalating violence was broadcast live across the globe. But within the walls of the besieged hotels, a social networking revolution was taking place. Even as the terrorists watched CNN to find out where their victims were hiding, the prisoners were texting with terrorism experts, passing information to specially set up user-groups, and even searching the web for plans of the buildings to coordinate their escapes. Told completely from the victims' perspective using their own words, voicemails, texts, and user-group postings, this episode places viewers inside the deadly cat and mouse game as it played out. duration 56:46   STEREO TV14 (Secondary audio: none)

    Nova [#4004] Who Killed Lindbergh's Baby? In the aftermath of his 1927 solo transatlantic flight, Charles Lindbergh became the most famous human being on earth. When he and his wife, Anne, had a son, Charlie, the press dubbed him Little Lindy. On March 1, 1932, kidnappers snatched Little Lindy from the family home near Hopewell, New Jersey. Negotiations stretched out for weeks, but Charlie never returned. His body was discovered not five miles from Hopewell. Now, Nova is reopening one of the most confounding crime mysteries of all time as a team of expert investigators employs state-of-the-art forensic and behavioral science techniques in an effort to determine what really happened to Lindbergh's baby - and why. duration 56:46   STEREO TV14 (Secondary audio: none)

    Nazi Mega Weapons [#103] V2 Rocket The first ever long-range rockets were designed and built by the Nazis in a network of top-secret research labs, underground silos and hi-tech launch pads.

  • 7:00 am
    Secrets of the Dead [#1002H] Deadliest Battle Germany's invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941 was the largest troop offensive in military history. And the Battle of Stalingrad is arguably the deadliest single battle the world has ever seen. The eventual Russian victory has long been lauded as a shining example of Stalin's military genius. He is said to have baited a much more powerful and technologically advanced German army with a carefully executed withdrawal, then caught the Nazis unprepared in a vicious city-block-by-city-block counterattack that decimated the German forces. By the time the battle was over, more than 1 million lives had been lost and the course of the war had been permanently altered. But 70 years after the battle was fought, newly uncovered documents, survivor accounts, and stunning archival footage are revealing a very different picture of a forced retreat, not a tactical one, and of fiercer fighting in the countryside that has previously been suggested. Secrets of the Dead: Deadliest Battle tells the true story of the battle that turned World War II, and established the Soviet Union as a world superpower for the looming Cold War. duration 54:16   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)
