          For the early railroad engineer, the locomotive had an open seat, a few control arms and an insatiable appetite for coal. It hardly moved faster than a horse but was still the high tech form of transportation in the 1800s. Today's engineers enjoy the enclosed cockpit of computeri...sed, high-speed missiles. Some locomotives can hurtle across the countryside at speeds of over 200km per hour! TRAINS UNLIMITED traces the history of the railroads' motive power, from steam to diesel and beyond, alongside the great engineers and visionaries responsible for the ongoing innovation of railway transport.

          At a time when the world has never seemed more divided, In The Zone is a story about a man who, despite all the obstacles, is trying to bring people together. And its working. Terrance Wallace has already enabled over a hundred minority teenagers in New Zealand to create educatio...nal and personal success through a pioneering scheme which gives them access to influential schools with opportunities previously beyond their reach. Over time, Terrance has become a father-figure to many of the teens in his care, and has encouraged them to in turn inspire and empower others. But with his own family directly impacted by escalating political tension and violence back home in the USA, he begins to face the heart-wrenching decision of choosing between the kids for whom he is a guardian and mentor, and his own community in Chicago. Throughout its powerful narrative, this film raises poignant questions about education, privilege, diversity, and cycles of inequality across the Western world, and shows us that nobody is too small to make a difference.

          January 2018 will mark 20 years since the start of the investigation that led to only the second impeachment trial in America's history. Now, it is not only a new century, but there have been seismic shifts in all aspects of our culture since the Clinton impeachment scandal unfol...ded across the global headlines of 1998. This six-part documentary series from Academy Award winning documentary director Alex Gibney, focuses on the extraordinary sequence of events, which are an indelible part of American identity. It is a story of a vast right wing conspiracy against the Clintons and a West Wing conspiracy against Monica Lewinsky, of Americans divided both along party lines and within themselves, as the nation was quick to condemn the behavior of the president and Lewinsky, yet unable to look away. Sex, power, money, secrecy, lies, betrayal, ideological warfare; the series will play out like an elaborate political thriller. The producers have exclusive access to Monica Lewinsky, her family and her legal archive and extraordinary access to some of the other principals in the story.

Almost one billion of us take a regular dietary supplement, mainly vitamin tablets. Vitamins are enthusiastically endorsed by ...celebrities, and vitamin-fortified foods line our supermarket shelves. But how safe are these products? Is it true that vitamins are natural and therefore can't do you any harm? How are they regulated, and how can parents make the right choices for their children's health. These surprisingly urgent questions are investigated by scientist Dr Derek Muller in Vitamania, the latest documentary made by Emmy Award-winning Australian filmmakers, Genepool Productions.
