This is a potentially controversial docu-drama about Adolf Hitler, showing his life growing up, and his reign of Germany through WW2.Most historical documentaries show Hitler as the mad leader behind the slaughter of countless people, and while that part is true, the story behind his life, through defeat in the trenches WW1, his desire to be an artist, and his upbringing is rarely told.During World War 1, which is a turning point in the life of Adolf Hitler, he reportedly loved the trench warfare, even volunteering for hazardous duty, and was actually awarded the Iron Cross 2nd Class for Bravery.The film also goes into Hitler’s book, Mein Kampf, one of the worlds best selling books, which gives not only his political and social views, but also talks about boxing, Syphilis and other seemingly random topics.Using historical footage and re-created scenes, this documentary may not change your opinions of the most talked about German Leaders in history, but should at least give you more insight into his life and why he did what he did.This film is broken into parts, starting with the trailer.Be sure to see the filmmaker’s website at: http://thegreateststorynevertold.tv/

Both the United States and the Soviet Union drifted apart after the Russian Revolution of 1917, the Russian Civil War and the Paris Peace Conference. Diplomatic and extensive trading relationships were established under Roosevelt, but relations soured following the Soviet occupation of the Baltic States and eastern Poland. After Hitler broke the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact the Western powers worked closely with the Soviet Union during the Second World War. Distrust reemerged as Stalin's plans for placing Eastern Europe in the Soviet Union's sphere of influence became apparent towards the war's end, and came to the fore at the Potsdam Conference, just before the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Interviewees include George F. Kennan, Zoya Zarubina, Hugh Lunghi and George Elsey.

A ninja or shinobi was a mercenary warrior class that originates from 15th century Japan. Some of the basic operations of the ninja included infiltration, espionage, sabotage, assassination and also open combat if needed. In the troubled times of the Sengoku period, between 15th and 17th century, a class of mercenaries and spies for hire emerged in the Province of Iga and the surrounding area of the village of Kōga. The contemporary knowledge that we have on ninjas is provided from the clan records of these two areas. The figure of the ninja poses a central character in a number of folklore tales and legends, and as a consequence it is often difficult to tell the difference between historical fact and myth. Among the extraordinary abilities attributed to the ninja were the control over the elements in nature, invisibility and the ability to walk on water. That, in turn, twisted the perception of the ninja in western popular culture in the 20th century. The view on these warriors of the night is ever so often based on various legends and folklore rather than on the historical facts about them.Watch this documentary and see the truth behind the legends of the ninja warriors. Discover the mindset of people that devoted themselves to such a lifestyle of danger and discipline.

This is no ordinary travel documentary; this is total “Hell on Earth”. Warlords, cannibalism, child soldiers on heroin, squalor and total madness. General Bin Laden, General Butnaked, General Mosquito…just imagine the scene in Baboon town. This is a black humorous look at what is a comical yet deadly situation…amazing!What Andy Capper, Editor Vice UK, is said about the film: We came to Liberia with a small team of three and quickly found a local journalist who would be our guide and fixer. Our first shoot location was the prestigious West Point, home to 80,000 people living in that redefine squalor. Thousands of rotting garbage around the neighborhood, which has no sewage system.Almost everyone – including local government officials – defecate and urinate in the open. Drugs, prostitution and armed robbery are the main industries. We got to know some of the residents of West Point, they told us their stories as he smoked heroin and cocaine and we asked for money.Then we visited a local brothel. Women who lived there spoke to us about the UN peacekeepers who have sex with child prostitutes and beat older women, and then not pay.But perhaps the most revealing parts of our trip to Liberia came to the meeting of the main leaders of the nation’s civil wars. There is a tradition in the Liberian militias outrageous noms de guerre assumed. Therefore, our subjects Bin Laden named General, General Rambo and General Butt Naked. The latter, in particular, was one of the Liberian warlords, most famous. He claims to have personally killed 20,000 people, including babies, and sometimes have cannibalized his victims.Today, General Butt Naked is on his birth name, which is Joshua. During our time together, we said that Liberia will surely implode into civil war when the UN leaves again next year. But in the meantime, Joshua wants to redeem himself. He offered us a vision of Liberia that wants to establish, and we are growing for him. He took us to his church, which rehabilitates child soldiers. We watched as he preached his way through Monrovia on a Sunday.Is there a possibility that successful mission, and the civil war still can be avoided in this country so desperately? That’s one of the many questions that arose with our safe return of Liberia. View our documentary about our stay there and see what you think.

Sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch are the tools most of us rely on perceiving the world. However, some people say it also can perceive things beyond the reach of conventional senses, through some other channel for which there is no anatomical or neurological explanation. Scientists who study the skills as we call extrasensory perception (ESP), but lay people often refer to them as the sixth sense.Any of the terms is actually a generic term for a variety of different skills course vary from person to person. Some people claim that the power of telepathy – that is, the ability to perceive the thoughts of others without having to communicate verbally or in writing. Others say they have the power of clairvoyance, which is the ability to perceive events and objects that are hidden from view because of barriers or distance. Still others claim to be gifted with precognition, which allows them to look ahead and envision what has not happened yet.The belief in ESP or sixth sense can be traced back thousands of years. The Greek historian Herodotus wrote that Croesus, who ruled a kingdom in what is now Turkey in the sixth century BC, consult oracles – that is, groups of priests claimed to be able to predict the future – before going to war. In ancient India, Hindu holy men are believed to possess the power to see and hear at a distance, and communicate through telepathy.In late 1700, the Viennese physician Franz Mesmer claimed that he could give people powers ESP hypnotizing them. Just before his assassination in 1865, President Abraham Lincoln told his friends that he had dreamed of his own body lying in state at the White House. In the 20th century, Edgar Cayce and Jean Dixon attracted wide fans, claiming they could predict future events. During the Cold War, U.S. the military and intelligence agencies, driven by reports that the Soviets had at their disposal psychic even tried to use clairvoyants who claimed power to remote viewing for espionage purposes. List of all episodes here: through the hole.

The Horten H.IX, RLM designation Ho 229 (often called Gotha Go 229 due to the identity of the chosen manufacturer of the aircraft) was a German prototype fighter/bomber designed by Reimar and Walter Horten and built by Gothaer Waggonfabrik late in World War II. It was the first pure flying wing powered by jet engines.It was given the personal approval of German Luftwaffen Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring, and was the only aircraft to come close to meeting his "3×1000" performance requirements, namely to carry 1,000 kilograms (2,200 lb) of bombs a distance of 1,000 kilometres (620 mi) with a speed of 1,000 kilometres per hour (620 mph). Its ceiling was 15,000 metres (49,000 ft).Since the appearance of the B-2 Spirit flying wing stealth bomber in the 1990s, its similarities in role and shape to the Ho 229 has led many to retrospectively describe the Ho 229 as "the first stealth bomber". A static reproduction of the only surviving Ho 229 prototype, the Ho 229 V3, in American hands since the end of World War II was later tested by the US military who found the basic shape and paint composition of the mock copy would provide for 20% reduction in detection range against the Chain Home radar of the 1940s, but no significant stealth benefit against most other contemporary radar systems.

An exceptional, groundbreaking and voyeuristic look into military reserve life in Israel, this film was shot over a 5 year period in director and reserve soldier Yaniv Berman’s life. A soldier in the Israeli army reserves, Alpha Company, Berman had never seen before access and filmed the soldiers as they went about their normal day and night. Crossing over to the Palestinian border the camera captured remarkably every movement of the soldiers from the frenetic night-time house arrests to the quiet moments of self reflection and despair.Capturing the humiliation of both the Palestinians who are subject to the house arrests as well as the Israeli soldiers who had to carry them out, this film is the unique story of those who every 30 days in the year drop their normal lives and under the guise of the olive green uniform, perform the toughest, most unsettling tasks, in the heart of an urban Palestinian town. The film jumps into the steely barriers of the military barracks and gains fresh insight into the views of the soldiers who speak frankly on a range of issues including the occupation, the conflict and the Army. A sensitive exploration of the conflict done first hand from an individual caught in the midst of the action, Berman’s film leaves us with no doubt that war leaves scars and victims on both sides of the camp.

Katana were one of the traditionally made Japanese swords that were used by the samurai warriors of feudal Japan. Modern versions of the katana are sometimes made using non-traditional materials and methods. The katana is characterized by its distinctive appearance: a curved, slender, single-edged blade with a circular or squared guard and long grip to accommodate two hands. The first use of ‘katana’ as a word occurs as early as the Kamakura Period (1185–1333) and it is used to describe a long sword that was different from a ‘tachi’. The rise in popularity of katana amongst samurai came about due to the changing nature of close-combat warfare. The quicker draw of the sword was well suited to combat where victory depended heavily on fast response times. Watch this documentary and discover the truly amazing story about a sword that is and shall remain more than a weapon. It symbolizes a lifestyle, devotion, passion and much more.

"War on Our World from Dominoes Falling Productions, is a feature length documentary via a combination of assorted material.This picture scrutinizes war, domination and some of the reasons and aftereffects of this, with an individual examination of the Military-Industrial complex. The goal of the film is to assist and encourage peace.The film starts off with a succession from the picture American History X and resumes with lines from a milestone discourse furnished by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. named Beyond Vietnam.I arrive to this splendid house of worship tonight for the reason that my conscience leaves me no other choice. A true revolution of morals will lay hand on the globe order and say of war, ‘this way of settling differences is not just.'This occupation of burning human beings with napalm, of filling our nation’s homes with orphans and widows, of injecting poisonous drugs of hate into the veins of peoples normally humane, of sending men home from dark and bloody battlefields physically handicapped and psychologically deranged, cannot be reconciled with wisdom, justice, and love."

Promises presents a powerful portrait of seven Palestinian and Israeli children living in and around Jerusalem. As a filmmaker BZ Goldberg, who was raised in Israel, the notes do not live more than 20 minutes of each other, but each of them grow in very different worlds. Children are Mahmoud, Shlomo, Sanabel, Faraj, Moishe, and twins Yarko and Daniel.With the exception of the latter, all are religious (the twins are the grandchildren of a Holocaust survivor). Most have strong political convictions and have seen their share of tragedy – Faraj friend was killed in front of him, but when the film makes clear, are also children.They like to watch TV, burping contests, and compete in sports (Faraj is a broker, Daniel Yarko and volleyball). The promises are not intended to explain, but let the children speak for themselves. The results are funny, sad, and ultimately quite profound.If you believe in your heart that, despite all obstacles, peace is possible between Israelis and Palestinians, this film will fill you with hope and wonder.

For the Allied countries, faced with a new enemy in the Soviet Union, there was a need to portray WW2 as a crusade of good against evil, even if this meant denying the memories of the Allied soldiers who had actually done the fighting, and knew it to have been far more complex.You Have Used Me as a Fish Long Enough:In this episode, the history of brainwashing and mind control was examined. Curtis pursued the angle in the way in which psychiatry pursued tabula rasa theories of the mind, initially in order to set people free from traumatic memories and then later as a potential instrument of social control, and to this end even the work of Ewen Cameron was surveyed. The programme’s thesis was that the search for control over the past via medical intervention had had to be abandoned and that in modern times control over the past is more effectively exercised by the manipulation of history.The Attic:In this episode, the Imperial aspirations of Margaret Thatcher were examined as to how she used public relations in an attempt to fulfill a political or national end. The title is a reference to the attic flat at the top of 10 Downing Street, which was created during Thatcher’s period refurbishment of the house, which did away with the Prime Minister’s previous living quarters on lower floors.
