The Hunt for John Wilkes Booth - The History Channel

For 12 days in April 1865, John Wilkes Booth - the assassin of President Abraham Lincoln - and his co-conspirator David Heroldmen evaded the greatest manhunt in history. More than 10,000 federal troops hunted them for the killing of Lincoln and a series of attacks on a handful of other government officials.

Inside a rundown tobacco field a few miles south of Bowling Green, Virginia, time is running out for John Wilkes Booth. For 12 hellish days the assassin of Abraham Lincoln has been on the run - miraculously evading more than 10,000 federal troops that ripped across the countryside looking for the president's killer.

The Hunt for John Wilkes Booth chronicles Booth's flight and the efforts of those determined to catch him.

Out of Left Field: The Making of the Chinese Baseball Team

In the heat of the Arizona sun, at a field normally used by Major League Baseball prospects, a group of players who speak not a word of English do their best to comprehend the basics of the most American of games.

They are Chinese - gifted natural athletes who know more about gymnastics and table tennis than double plays and sacrifice flies. Their coaches are American - retired from the Majors, looking to help bring together the world's most disconnected cultures through the international language of baseball.

Their goal is to make a good showing in the Beijing 2008 Olympics. To make it, they must overcome seemingly insurmountable cultural and language barriers that go far beyond learning what it means when "the bags are juiced."

Welcome to Out of Left Field - a rollicking documentary that follows the stories of the Chinese Olympic Baseball Team, their American coaches and their journey to make sports history. China has never had an Olympic baseball team, but in 2008 it's guaranteed - the host nation does not have to qualify its teams to participate in a sport.

Out of Left Field is a remarkable glimpse into this world - a first-of-its-kind opportunity to see the emergence of a sport in a nation that once considered baseball "cultural pollution." Jim Lefebvre, former player and coach with the Los Angeles Dodgers, is in charge of turning Chinese players with limited skills into Olympic-caliber athletes. Along with a handful of other retired pros - and with the cooperation of Major League Baseball - they are helping to bring America's game to a nation with one-fifth of the world's population.

The Missing Years - National Geographic Channel

He is the most influential figure in history. Every word he said over the course of the last three years of his life has been dissected, scrutinized and fought over. The most powerful religion in the world is based on his teachings. And yet, between the ages of 12 and 30 his life is a complete blank slate - a mystery of epic proportions.

The Missing Years is a new television documentary that looks at the facts and fiction surrounding the 18 years unaccounted for in the life of Jesus Christ. By using the four gospels of the New Testament, this show examines what could have been during the two unaccounted for decades.

The Missing Years sifts through the historical record and the speculative written accounts to explain how the most famous human to ever live could vanish from the earth.
