New Madrid:
The Earthquakes of 1811 – 1812

 

Beginning in 1811 and lasting through part of 1812, one of North America's strongest earthquake sequences struck the western frontier of the United States. However, this wasn't California, but the Mississippi River Valley – what is now the country's heartland.

Elvis

 

He Touched Me: The Gospel Music of Elvis Presley
Long before Elvis was heralded as the king of rock 'n' roll, he was a faithful fan of gospel music. Although it was instrumental in shaping his spiritual life as well as his career, no documentary has truly chronicled this facet of his life — until now. He Touched Me: The Gospel Music of Elvis Presley features more than thirty of Elvis's gospel recordings and never-before-seen footage. Filled with personal stories by those who knew him well, this program goes behind the scenes of Elvis's career.
