    Body's Secret Army Every day of our lives, silently and invisibly, our bodies do battle against a never-ending onslaught of hostile forces. Bacteria. Viruses. Microbes of all kinds. Fortunately, we win the lion's share of these battles. If we didn't, we'd all die.
    The foot soldiers in this daily battle are the microscopic cells and molecules of the body's immune system. For centuries, its workings were shrouded in mystery. But over the past hundred years, thanks in large part to the groundbreaking discoveries of Nobel Prize-winning scientists, we have unraveled its basic principles. And in recent years, immunology has made even bolder advances - taking on diseases that once seemed beyond its reach.
    In an eye-opening journey that takes us deep inside the human body and explores how Nobel Prize-winning pioneers have unlocked the secrets of the immune system, producer Michael Schwarz tells the life-and-death story of the body's invisible defenders.

    Rebels On Lake Erie A story of intrigue, conspiracy and adventure, set against the backdrop of the Civil War. Virginia native John Yates Beall - a wealthy, college-educated Southern plantation owner - served in the Confederate army under the legendary General Stonewall Jackson. Wounded in battle, Beall continued to serve the cause as a privateer, attacking Union ships on Chesapeake Bay. Later, he would lead two ambitious (and ultimately unsuccessful) missions: to liberate the Confederate soldiers imprisoned on Johnson's Island Prisoner-of-War Depot near Sandusky, Ohio and to free captured Confederate officers by derailing a passenger train in Upstate New York. 3 years in the making, this program recounts Beall's wartime exploits through interviews with Civil War authors, historians and scholars; photographs, maps and illustrations from libraries and archives across the US and Canada; and period music from the Civil War era. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG
