Tuesday, Aug. 11 at 8 p.m. In the years prior to World War I, Ottoman rule was still very strong in Palestine. Examine a pivotal but often overlooked time when Arab and Jewish nationalism first came in contact, sparking a conflict that would dominate the region for the next century.
Saturday, Aug. 8 at 9 p.m. Poirot travels to the Swiss Alps to trap an infamous art thief, Marrascaud, at the society debut of the Le Mesurier family’s daughter, Lucinda. But when Marrascaud makes away with the family’s precious jewels and paintings and leaves behind the body of Lucinda, Poirot falls into deep depression. It is not until a chauffeur calls upon Poirot to find his missing true love that the detective feels he can return to his work. In this search, he stumbles upon Marrascaud’s hideout, and encounters a number of suspicious individuals and people from his past—but which one is the killer?

Friday, Aug. 7 at 9:30 p.m. Examine the 1964 campaign between Lyndon Johnson and Barry Goldwater that brought about so many changes to politics and America as a nation. Not only did this campaign introduce a new era of the television attack ad, it also transformed the American political landscape, creating the contemporary geopolitical map of red and blue states. It also sparked a number of future conservative offshoots. This film includes interviews with historians and participants in the 1964 campaign.
