          How did Adolf Hitler manage to survive more than 40 assassination attempts - some by his own generals? Using captured SS documents and eyewitness interviews, this documentary series reveals the secrets of the elite bodyguards who swore loyalty oaths to the Fhrer himself. It expla...ins how Hitler cultivated rivalries among his security services to ensure his safety, and how his purposefully unpredictable behavior saved his life several times. Carefully assembled archival footage offers rare glimpses inside Hitler's infamous strongholds - the Berghof, the Wolf's Lair, and the Berlin bunker. Computer-generated graphics detail the security measures used in his trains, planes, and touring cars. And meticulous re-enactments bring lost incidents to life. In 13 riveting episodes, this Military Channel favorite brings fresh, fascinating context to the 20th century's most evil and destructive tyrant. Narrated by Robert Powell.

          'Oil in the Blood' is a documentary feature film on the contemporary custom motorcycle culture. The philosophy of individualism is embedded in motorcycling. The desire to be different and unique, is at the root of the motorcyclist's imagination. Modifying, customising, and changi...ng bikes is at the very heart of the biker. Custom motorcycle culture has experienced a renaissance in recent years, and what was once a niche subculture now bears a significant influence on the international mainstream motorcycle industry. Filmed over three years, Oil In The Blood features interviews with almost 300 bike builders, riders, journalists, artists and racers from Britain, Europe, Japan, Australia, the Far East, Africa and the US alongside major manufactures Harley Davidson, Yamaha, Royal Enfield, Ducati and BMW. The very heartbeat of motorcycle culture has been brought together for the very first time in this brand new documentary film.
