Nature | My Congo

Available Thursday, July 4

Despite the number of years living and working as a wildlife cameraman in Europe, Vianet D’jenguet always carried fond childhood memories of the Congo wherever he traveled. "My Congo" represents his first opportunity to film in his native country and he takes viewers to his favorite places to witness the diversity of wildlife, stunning landscapes, and friendly people.

 

The Greeks

Available Wednesday, July 3

They were an extraordinary people born of white rock and blue sea. They invented democracy, distilled logic and reason, wrote plays to plumb the deepest recesses of the soul, and captured the perfection of the human form in athletics and art. Quite simply, the Greeks created our world. Today, of course, Greece conjures very different images: civic unrest, financial meltdowns, long ATM lines.

Antiques Roadshow | Vintage Houston (2012)

Expires Thursday, July 11

In 2022, Qatar will host the biggest sporting event in the world, the FIFA World Cup. But right now, far away from the bright lights, star athletes and adoring fans, the tournament is being built on the backs of 1.6 million African and Asian migrant workers. The Workers Cup gives voice to the men who are laboring to build sport’s grandest stage and competing in a soccer tournament of their own.

 

POV | Lindy Lou, Juror Number 2

Expires Tuesday, July 16

For 20 years, Lindy has lived with an unbearable feeling of guilt. Committed to fulfilling her civic duty, Lindy sat on a jury with 11 other jurors that handed down the death penalty to a Mississippi man convicted in a double homicide. But an overwhelming feeling of regret compels Lindy to track down her fellow jurors and tackle an oft-politicized issue with humor and sincere curiosity.
