Program Descriptions:



manhunt (HBO)

From HBO Documentaries, Manhunt, is a riveting tale of espionage as revealed by the real insiders who led the CIA’s secret war against Osama bin Laden.  This documentary is based upon CNN terrorism analyst Peter Bergen’s bestselling book, Manhunt: The Ten-Year Search for Bin Laden from 9/11 to Abbottabad (2012).



beyond the manhunts: How to stop terror – a fareed zakaria gps special

CNN’s and TIME’s Fareed Zakaria hosts an in-depth look into America’s secret wars on terrorists in the homeland and abroad.  Zakaria also speaks with those closest to the hunt for 9/11 terrorist Osama bin Laden and others about how U.S. intelligence agencies have slowly evolved to take on some activities associated with the U.S. Military and the changing role of women in America’s intelligence services.  Manhunt author and national security analyst Peter Bergen, former National Security Agency director Michael Hayden, The New York Times journalist Mark Mazzetti, former CIA director and U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, former FBI agent Ali Soufan, and former CIA officers Nada Bakos, Robert Grenier, and Cindy Storer contribute.



Storm Hunters: In the Path of Disaster – An Anderson Cooper Special Report

CNN rides along for an in-depth look at the dangerous yet important role played by storm chasers in tracking the pathways of powerful storms.  Key chasers describe how they followed the deadly Oklahoma tornadoes this week and tried to provide warnings and position information to meteorologists and disaster management officials about the strength of the twisters and the locations imperiled by the outbreak of storms in ‘Tornado Alley.’

Anderson Cooper Special Report: Back to Boston – Moments of Impact
The images of the unforgettable tragedy at April’s Boston Marathon are burned in memory…This Anderson Cooper Special Report looks at the iconic still photographs that vividly capture the unexplainable – images that capture both the horror and the heroism of the event.  CNN’s Randi Kaye interviews the photographers who filmed the most memorable images and the people whose stories they immortalized. 

ANTHONY BOURDAIN: Parts Unknown (MOROCCO/TANGIER)
CNN host Anthony Bourdain explores the “Interzone,” where artists like Burroughs, Bowles, and the Rolling Stones sought escape from Western moral prohibitions and the possibilities of great empty spaces.  His quest is to find out if that “anything goes” attitude still exists.

ANTHONY BOURDAIN: Parts Unknown (CANADA)
CNN host Anthony Bourdain travels to remote areas within the province of Quebec where he samples local delicacies and explores ice fishing and beaver hunting.

ANTHONY BOURDAIN: Parts Unknown (Libya)
CNN host Anthony Bourdain explores Libyan hip-hop, Italian restaurants, tribal allegiances and post-war uncertainty in Libya.  Bourdain looks at the country through personal stories, food – and the music – of anti-Qaddafi rapper ex-patriots who returned to fight.

there’s Something wrong with Aunt Diane
From HBO Documentaries, There’s Something Wrong with Aunt Diane, reveals previously unknown information about the notorious 2009 car accident that ended the lives of eight people, including four young children. Following the crash, the driver, Diane Schuler – wife, mother, and cable TV executive – was portrayed as a reckless drunk and overextended mother by some, and as a model wife, friend and worker by others.  The documentary recounts the day with a minute-by-minute retelling, and includes interviews with Schuler’s family, friends, co-workers, eyewitnesses, first responders, investigators, and medical and psychiatric experts.  Also drawing upon surveillance footage, family photos, news clips, and expert testimony, the film seeks to explain how things could have gone so terribly wrong on New York’s Taconic State Parkway on July 26, 2009.  

ANTHONY BOURDAIN: Parts Unknown (MYANMAR)
With the slight relaxation of control by the government of Myanmar, CNN host Anthony Bourdain takes his first trip to one of the most fabled and beautiful areas of Asia.
ANTHONY BOURDAIN: Parts Unknown (Los angeles/Koreatown)
CNN host Anthony Bourdain takes Los Angeles--but with a twist.  No Hollywood sign, no Beverly Hills.  Instead, he zeroes in on a three square-mile area of the city known as Koreatown, where he finds a tight-knit community still marked by the 1992 Rodney King riots.

ANTHONY BOURDAIN: Parts Unknown (colombia)
The public face of Colombia has changed immensely over the past 10 years and is still changing for the better.  Anthony Bourdain explores several regions of the country from the mountains down to the Caribbean coast to the coca leaf growing inlands formerly controlled by drug cartels.

Has Don Lemon's show at 10:00 EST been cancelled? It seems like they have specials at that time on the weekends now.

Under Saturday's line up, May 25th I viewed the documentary entitled "Something is Wrong With Aunt Diane on CNN," and rehashed the entire experience and compared it to the video.
Do not know why it was not posted.

@Anonymous, We published it but it never posted. It must be floating somewhere in cyberspace. Sorry.

@ATC team: That's odd. Thank you for answering my post.
Well my main point was that Diane Schler's charred body is shown in the video but not shown on the CNN/HBO broadcast.
There was also no closure for both families and it is still a mystery whether Aunt Diane had a physical ailment or the accident was deliberate.
The only fact we know is, it was drug related.
I said it was not for the faint of heart and was shown at 1PM EST.
It was the worst auto fatality in recent history, involving two vehicles going in opposite directions in one lane.
