    This episode takes a look at the petroleum industry and the many products derived from oil used in the United States.
    Imagine it: Rubber, plastic, nylon, aerosols, resins, solvents, & lubricants; none can exist without oil, still hailed as Black Gold. Even if we stopped driving our cars tomorrow, America would still need 5 million barrels of oil a day - more than all of Southern Europe combined. From the shirt on your back to the waxy sheen of a beautiful apple, the first secret of oil is that it's everywhere you look. Oil is used to lubricate machines, weapons, and even skin. It provides the chemical building blocks for plastics, rubber, synthetic fibers and pharmaceuticals.
    Uncertain supplies and rising demand have made cheap oil a thing of the past, leading scientists to develop alternatives for nearly all of oil's factions. We'll go behind-the-scenes at a Southern California Oil Refinery where the true value of oil is first unlocked.

    In his quest to dominate a continent, Adolf Hitler faced a formidable task--defending 3,000 miles of occupied European coastline from an invasion that he knew was coming. To do so, the Nazis erected an incredible string of fortifications that came to be known as the Atlantic Wall.
    From the North Cape to the Biscay, Hitler's Atlantic Wall stretched over 5,000 kilometers along the west and north coast of Europe. Around 13,000 bunkers and fortresses, especially on the Franco-Belgian Channel coast, were constructed to prevent a sea invasion by the Allies.
    Using captured Nazi documents, expert commentary, combat and archival footage and the recollections of the soldiers who lived through D-Day, this episode tells the story of the most extensive defensive edifice erected since the Great Wall, visiting the now-quiet coastlines where the remnants of the massive network remain, detailing the different defenses and weapons that were supposed to make the European coast impregnable. Then, see how the Allied commanders plotted their attack and interviews soldiers who were charged with making their strategies work. Journey back to World War II for a fascinating look at the Atlantic Wall and how it was breached.

    Genre: Documentary
    Part of The History Channel's Modern Marvels series, The Manhattan Project documents how scientists were brought together by the American government in order to create what at that time was the most devastating weapon in history - the atomic bomb. The United States wanted to build an atomic explosive to counter the threat posed by the German nuclear development program. The term Manhattan Project came about because the program began under the Manhattan Engineering District of the War Department
    Born out of a small research program begun in 1939, the Manhattan Project eventually employed more than 130,000 people, including some of the best US scientists, engineers and mathematicians, and it was operated under a shroud of absolute secrecy.
    At 5:30 a.m. July 16 1945 scientists and dignitaries awaited the detonation of the first atomic bomb in a desolate area of the New Mexico desert aptly known as Jornada del Muerto-Journey of Death. Dubbed the Manhattan Project the top-secret undertaking was tackled with unprecedented speed and expense-almost 30-billion in today's dollars.
