Humboldt County Board of Supervisors 3rd District
William “Dub” Lawrence was a former sheriff who established and trained one of Utah's first SWAT teams, only to watch in horror as that same unit killed his son-in-law in a controversial standoff years later. In Peace Officer, Dub, driven by an obsessive sense of mission, uses his investigative skills to uncover the truth about that incident and other officer-involved shootings in his community, while tackling larger questions about the changing face of police investigations nationwide. Dub's commitment to turn around the systemic failings he saw as a young officer led to a successful bid to become Sheriff of Davis County, Utah, in 1974. Now retired from public service, Dub spends his free time as a private investigator, especially focused on the shooting death of his son-in-law Brian Wood. His resourceful instincts soon uncover tragic mistakes made by the SWAT teams who confronted Wood, igniting a long-term obsession with bringing to light the truth behind officer-involved shootings and SWAT t
Bombing Hitler's Supergun
Spring 1943. World War II is slowly beginning to turn in favor of the Allied forces. But, growing desperate, Hitler hatches plans for a diabolical weapon: a bank of “superguns" housed in a massive underground complex in Nazi-occupied northern France. Together the guns would be able to pump 300 heavy high explosive shells into downtown London every hour—a target 100 miles away. This weapon could spell doom for the Allies. But how can such a massive gun possibly work? Join NOVA as engineers, archeologists, and World War II historians investigate this fearsome weapon. And discover the two audacious missions designed to destroy the seemingly impregnable supergun complex, one of which is led by none other than Joseph Kennedy Jr. Can these hair-raising missions save the Allied forces?

A Lesson In Love
Wallander and his colleagues discover a woman’s body half-buried in the forest swamp. As they search the victim’s home, it becomes clear there has been an intruder and, more disturbingly, that the victim’s teenage daughter is missing. But the search for the missing girl leads Wallander down a treacherous path of secrets, confused loyalties, and forbidden love. As Wallander is increasingly threatened by a local biker gang in connection with the investigation, his ability to keep himself safe is called into question. The return of an old flame provides some much-needed relief but, just as we think Wallander may finally find happiness, an unexpected shadow starts to haunt him.

The only clue to Håkon’s whereabouts is a suspicious submarine incident shrouded in 25 years of secrets. When the case takes a devastating turn, Wallander must delve deeper into cold war politics and, in doing so, uncovers delicate, fractured relationships within the Von Enke family. With time running out, and his own memory working against him, Wallander must prevail against the odds if he is to safeguard his daughter’s future.
In 2012, California amended its "Three Strikes" law — one of the harshest criminal sentencing policies in the country. The passage of Prop. 36 marked the first time in U.S. history that citizens voted to shorten sentences of those currently incarcerated. Within days, the reintegration of thousands of "lifers" was underway. The Return examines this unprecedented reform through the eyes of those on the front lines — prisoners suddenly freed, families turned upside down, reentry providers helping navigate complex transitions and attorneys and judges wrestling with an untested law. At a moment of reckoning on mass incarceration, what can California's experiment teach the nation? A co-production of American Documentary | POV and ITVS. A co-presentation with the National Black Programming Consortium (NBPC). Official Selection of the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival.

DOC MARTIN is a catchy comedy drama that stars Martin Clunes (Men Behaving Badly) as Martin Ellingham, whose truculence and tactless manner causes mayhem in a small Cornish community.
