    Secrets of the Dead
    Hannibal in the Alps
    Hannibal, one of history's most famous generals, achieved what the Romans thought to be impossible. With a vast army of 50,000 troops, 15,000 horses and 37 war elephants, he crossed the mighty Alps in only 16 days to launch an attack on Rome from the north. For more than 2,000 years, nobody has been able to prove which of the four possible routes Hannibal took across the Alps - no physical evidence of Hannibal's army has ever been found... until now. In Secrets of the Dead: Hannibal in the Alps, a team of experts - explorers, archaeologists, and scientists - combine state-of-the-art technology, ancient texts, and a recreation of the route itself to conclusively prove for the first time that Hannibal's army did indeed cross the Alps - and exactly how and where he did it.

    Leonardo, The Man Who Saved Science
    Leonardo da Vinci is well known for his inventions as well as his art. But 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. Was Leonardo a copycat?
