#2 - Galileo’s Moon

8,20

Staffel 18 - Folge 1

When it was published in 1610, Galileo’s Sidereus Nuncius (Starry Messenger) set in motion a scientific revolution. Using observations he made of both the earth’s moon and Jupiter’s moons, Galileo proved earth is not the center of the universe. Five hundred and fifty copies of the original treatise were originally printed and roughly 150 are known to exist today. When an original copy with Galileo’s signature and seemingly original watercolor paintings of the phases of the moon believed to be done by Galileo himself came on the market in 2005, Sidereus Nuncius caused a worldwide sensation 400 years after its creation… and again in 2012 when it was proved a fake.

#4 - World War Speed

8,00

Staffel 17 - Folge 5

Stories about drug use by Hitler and German forces during World War II have been widely told. What’s less well known is the Allied commanders’ embraced pharmacological “force enhancers” as well. By 1941, rumors about Nazi soldiers using a “super-drug” identified as the methamphetamine Pervitin were confirmed, and Allied commanders launched their own classified program to find the perfect war-fighting drug. During the war, one in three Allied soldiers were incapacitated without a physical scratch on them. Modern weapons and warfare proved so terrifying that almost as many men were shredded by combat fatigue and shell shock — now known as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) — as by bullets and shrapnel. Allied commanders believed Benzedrine, an amphetamine similar to Pervitin, was the answer, hoping the amphetamine would defeat not just the need for sleep, but anxiety and fear among troops. How this drug affected the course of World War II is an ongoing controversy.

#6 - Leonardo, The Man Who Saved Science
7,88
Staffel 16 - Folge 4

Leonardo da Vinci is well known for his inventions as well as his art. New evidence shows that many of his ideas were realized long before he sketched them out in his notebooks-some even 1,700 years before him! Of these “inventions” Leonardo never affirmed that his projects came from his original ideas. The film features drawings of his most famous ideas and inventions some of which trace their original creation to ancient Greece while others were a product of the scientific inventions of golden age of Islamic learning. This knowledge seemed to be lost in Europe during the Dark Ages until the Renaissance when Leonardo recovered it.

#7 - The Man Who Saved the World
7,82
Staffel 12 - Folge 6

In October 1962, the world held its breath. On the edge of the Caribbean Sea, just a few miles from the Florida coast, the two great superpowers were at a stand-off. Surrounded by twelve US destroyers, which were depth-charging his submarine to drive it to the surface, Captain Vitali Grigorievitch Savitsky panicked. Unable to contact Moscow and fearing war had begun, he ordered the launch of his submarine’s nuclear torpedoes. As the two sides inched perilously close to nuclear war—far closer than we ever knew before–just one man stood between Captain Savitsky’s order and mutually assured destruction. Set over four hours on October 27, 1962, the tensest moments of the Cuban Missile Crisis, this program tells the powerful but forgotten story of Vasili Arkhipov and Soviet submarine B-59. With most of the action set in a claustrophobic submarine running out of air, “The Man Who Saved the World” combines tense drama with eyewitness accounts and expert testimony about some of the most critical events in the Cold War.

Über mich

Ich bin Sophie und das ist meine Website.

Ein bisschen über mich 👋 Ich bin ein Marketing-Student in Paris. Ich liebe es, Nachmittage mit Freunden in einem Café oder Park zu verbringen.

Aber mehr als alles andere liebe ich es, an regnerischen Sonntagen oder an jedem sonnigen Tag Serien auf meinem Computer zu sehen (.. binging…) 🙈

Ich muss inzwischen Hunderte von Shows gesehen haben, von Romantik bis zu Science-Fiction-Serien. Oft gehe ich gerne zu einer Show zurück, die mir Spaß gemacht hat. Aber ich habe keine Lust, es mir noch einmal anzuschauen ...

Ich habe diese Website erstellt, damit ich und andere die besten Folgen unserer Lieblingssendungen finden können. Bis heute habe ich ungefähr 1.000 Shows auf der Website mit Stimmen und Bewertungen von Fans.

Hoffentlich können Sie sich mir von Ihrem Sofa aus anschließen und einen schönen Fernseher genießen!
