Sunday January 8 at 9:00pm - Sherlock - Sherlock faces perhaps the most chilling enemy of his long career: the powerful and seemingly unassailable Culverton Smith-a man with a very dark secret.
Monday January 9 at 10:00pm - Independent Lens - Explore our attempts to plan for our radioactive future and the startling failure to manage waste in the present. Left over from the Cold War are a hundred million gallons of radioactive sludge, covering a vast amount of land.
Tuesday January 10 at 8:00pm - Nazi Mega Weapons - Investigate Hitler's mountain power house. Home to a Nazi elite, it became a labyrinth of underground tunnels, bunkers and secret escape routes, crowned by the awe-inspiring Eagle's Nest.
Wednesday January 11 at 10:00pm - In My Lifetime - Examine the continuing struggle of citizens, scientists and political leaders working to reduce or eliminate the atomic threat, while others search for ways to build nuclear weapons. The film shifts between historical events, including the Cuban missile crisis and the historic 1986 Reykjavik Summit between Reagan and Gorbachev to present-day efforts to contain the spread of nuclear weapons.
Thursday January 12 at 9:00pm - Doc Martin - Dr. Martin makes his on-air debut at Radio Portwenn, the local radio station and, no surprise, he's not a natural in front of the microphone. Meanwhile, a nasty stomach bug is sweeping through Portwenn.
Friday January 13 at 9:00pm - Celtic Woman: Destiny - Enjoy more musical enchantment from Ireland's famed singing group, filmed in Dublin's spectacular 200-year-old Round Room at the Mansion House. Hear new material along with fresh arrangements of their most spellbinding songs.
