Cosmic Code Breakers -
The Riemann Hypothesis is one of the great unsolved problems of mathematics. Many math geniuses have tried and failed to unravel the mystery behind the distribution of prime numbers, those that can only be divided by one or by themselves, such as 2, 3, 5, 11, 17, etc. THE COSMIC CODE BREAKERS follows the stories of these mathematicians who devoted their lives to solving this challenge. http://www.worldscreen.com/worldscreenings/display/5038

American Family: Anniversary Edition -
On Thursday evening, January 11, 1973 at 9:00 p.m., Americans stepped into the home of the Loud family of Santa Barbara, California. Chronicling the lives of its family members, the 12-hour documentary series made parents Pat and Bill Loud and their five children Lance, Delilah, Grant, Kevin and Michele Loud household names. During the seven months that they lived in front of the camera, viewers watched dramatic life events unfold, including Pat asking for a separation from her husband Bill, and the bohemian New York lifestyle of their gay son, Lance.Now, 40 years since filming, the original filmmaker have edited a new 2-hour feature-length special capturing the most memorable and compelling moments of the landmark series. See for yourself why An American Family is one of the 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time (TV Guide, 2002).
