    Vikings.

    Nordic peoples from the coasts of Scandinavia, these raiders and warriors were also explorers and merchants, whose slender ships carried them from Arabia to the New World--hundreds of years before Columbus set sail. After savage infighting among their own clans spurred development of the longship, the Vikings struck out across the seas, seeking plunder, slaves, and new lands. But in the end, they assimilated into European cultures and became agents of social and political change.

    Goths.

    Terrorized by the Huns' savage raids, the Goths made a desperate bid for safety in the Roman Empire, but were forced into squalid concentration camps along the imperial borders, starved and degraded, their children sold as slaves. But Rome made a big mistake--the Goths kept their weapons and exploded in rioting and looting. After centuries of broken treaties, King Aleric sacked Rome. Ironically, the Goths maintained Roman art and culture in their new Goth kingdoms as the Empire faded away.

    SS Lane Victory: #70.

    R. Lee Ermey is underway in San Pedro, California onboard the SS Lane Victory--the only fully operational WWII-era victory ship in the world. Lee highlights the role of the Merchant Marine and Navy Armed Guard in WWII and how they formed the vital link between "Rosie the Riveter" and "GI Joe"--shipping millions of tons of materiel and supplies across the Atlantic and Pacific. To demonstrate the ship's role, Lee and his jeep are sealifted by a WWII-era crane from shore onto the ship. From the anti-aircraft gun mount on the SS Lane Victory, the Gunny introduces a story about SWORDS, the military's new fully-armed robot warrior that is being deployed on the battlefield right now. And Lee takes a look back to the Navajo Code Talkers--Native Americans who developed an unbreakable secret code to keep radio communications safe during WWII.

    Keeping Secrets

    During WWII, Britain depended on its lifeline to North America, but in the first 18 months of war, German U-boats sank more than 3-million tons of shipping. It was a battle for survival and Britain was losing it. But by the spring of 1941, a new source of naval intelligence promised to transform the war in the Atlantic and shape victory from defeat. Featuring new eyewitness accounts from both sides, dramatic reconstructions, and a wealth of archival material.

    The Hunted

    By the spring of 1943, the tide had turned and the hunter became the hunted. How in a matter of a few short months did the Allies manage to master the German U-boat threat? We draw on eyewitness accounts and use dramatic reconstructions and archive footage to tell the remarkable story of the victories in the spring of 1943 and the final destruction of the U-boat fleet.

    Victory.

    For Allied servicemen, the last year of WWII proved the most difficult. Though victory was nearly assured, some of the roughest battles lay ahead. These men desperately wanted to return to home and loved ones. If they survived, what would the peace bring? WWII comes alive through a moving tapestry of letters, diaries, color film and photographs unearthed from archives and personal collections. Peter Coyote narrates.

    Impossible Naval Engineering

    Naval engineering has led the way in technological advances through all History. For the simple reason that if anything goes wrong at sea, you're dead. Relive the most extraordinary Naval ambitions of antiquity. The macabre collapsible death-yacht, commissioned by Roman emperor Nero, as a one- time-only assassination device--designed to kill his own mother. The ship that needed no engine and powered up-river by itself. The underwater booby trap defense system that smashed through pirate hulls in 15th century Italy. The chemical bomb fire ships that killed hundreds on the high seas of ancient Greece. And in a high adrenaline investigation, for the first time on television, we build and test the oldest white-water rapids crafts ever discovered.

    World War I: Jutland.

    May 1916. The British Grand Fleet, unchallenged since the Battle of Trafalgar, is moored in the peaceful harbor of Scapa Flow off the north coast of Scotland. The global dominance of the British Royal Navy is seemingly assured. But this is all about to change. The Battle of Jutland between Britain and Germany was the largest naval action of all time. It was a confrontation that the British wanted. An opportunity to unleash their lethal super weapons of the day--the great ships they called Dreadnoughts--and to prove that Britain did still rule the waves. Yet, in the cold grey waters of northern Europe, the showdown ended in carnage on a scale few could have imagined. Today, the ships with their vast gun turrets and thousands of shells still litter the seabed. Now, using the latest modern science, we try to determine what went wrong. Why was Jutland so disastrous for the British Royal Navy? And could it be, that in losing the battle, they won the naval war?
