Mystery Quest examines the theory of whether Hitler escaped from Berlin at the end of World War II. Officially the Soviets claim that after Hitler committed suicide his body was burn and buried. His remains were later unearthed and taken to Moscow by the KGB. MysteryQuest sends a scientific team to Russian to attempts to run tests on those remains, interviews the last surviving member of Hitler's inner circle, investigates a computer recreation of Hitler's Bunker, and searches for additional remains in the places where... read more

The Free State Project (FSP) started with an idea: if 20,000 libertarian activists could all move to one small state with a friendly culture, that would be enough to create true “Liberty In Our Lifetime.” In 2003, New Hampshire was chosen. Since then, more than 16,000 people have signed the Statement of Intent to move when the target is hit – and 1,674 participants have already made the move!
This week, two of these early movers released an original documentary on the project – 101 Reasons: Liberty Lives in New Hampshire, available for free on Youtube.
Like the FSP itself, this film started with a man and a vision. Director Vince Perfetto wanted to figure out how he could adapt a famous outreach pamphlet, “101 Reasons to Move to New Hampshire,” into a feature film. He enlisted the help of filmmaker Beau Davis, and the two began recording personal stories from FSP participants and perspectives on this historic project from liberty’s leading lights, including Ron Paul’s former Economic Adviser Peter Schiff, Food Inc.’s Joel Salatin, Patrick Byrne of Overstock.com, Nick Gillespie of Reason Magazine, and... read more
Beneath the complexities of everyday life the rules of our universe seem reassuringly simple, but as science further developed and those involved began to peer deeper into the tiny building blocks of matter all such certainty vanished and what was discovered was the weird world of Quantum Mechanics. Deep down inside of everything around us a universe was found completely unlike our own.
The story starts at the beginning of the 20th century with scientists trying to better understand how light bulbs work. Around 100 years ago some the greatest scientists began a journey down the rabbit hole into the strange and bizarre, they found that in the realm of the very small things could be in two places at once, that their faiths are dictated by chance and that reality itself is not what it seems, defying all common sense.
Albert Einstein hated the idea that ... read more
Mozart, other worldly genius, like naif, divine gift from god, serene marble bust of transcendent perfection all of it is the stuff of myth and legend and in this film, Tom Service dives right into the life of Mozart in an attempt to try and rediscover the greatness and humanity of the living man in his moment.
Mozart was a human being just like you and me except he could express the pain and pleasure, the joy and darkness of being human more completely and more humanly than any other composer. His music isn't merely perfect or beautiful, or genius, it's visceral, violent, avant-garde and powerfully expressive and it was written by a composer and a person who is still modern today, someone who made mistakes and tried unbelievably hard to make them right.... read more
Back to the Moon for Good expresses a confidence that advances in lunar technology will result in a resurgence of manned lunar exploration for the first time in over forty years, both to mine resources and potentially drive us towards further journeys into space.
In 2007 Google announced the launch of their Lunar XPRIZE, a $30 million incentive to stimulate a new generation of scientists, engineers and entrepreneurs into investigating the moon's resource potential. No governments are allowed in the competition and all teams must be 90% privately held. In order to keep costs down, many participants are involved on a voluntary basis. Unlike the "two player" American/Russian conflict of decades past, 30 teams initially entered Google's modern day space race.
In a break from the animated footage, representatives from different teams share some of the key ideas behind their proposed designs, explaining their techniques for entering the moon's orbit and... read more
It is commonly theorized that the universe began with the Big Bang 13.7 billion years ago. But since we can only see as far as light has traveled in that time, we can't actually make out the edge of the universe. Could it be that the universe is infinite? Is there any way to find out what the shape of the universe really is? Can we find the edge, discover what might lie beyond it, and perhaps even discover a universe next to... read more

Billionaire's Paradise: Inside Necker Island For the first time viewers are given an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at one of the most exclusive holiday destinations in the world - Necker Island. This film is an intimate portrait of how the rich, powerful and famous holiday, and what it's like for the staff who serve them. It's an upstairs-downstairs world where nearly 100 staff cater to just 30 guests - where some have over a staggering £40,000 a night to experience the perfect island paradise. And while Necker is home to Sir Richard Branson and his family, it is also a serious commercial venture. Selling the Caribbean dream to the most demanding guests in the world is a daily pressure. Over the years, the island has welcomed everyone from Princess Diana and Nelson Mandela to Kate Moss and One Direction's Harry Styles. Many of the guests are annual regulars, with one New York property developer on her twenty-first visit. There's also a mixture of heirs and heiresses to fortunes, and a ... read more
