In 2003, seven astronauts are killed instantly when their space shuttle, Columbia, disintegrates on re-entry into the earth’s atmosphere.  The NASA shuttle program is grounded with immediate effect. On the International Space Station, three men - two astronauts and a cosmonaut - had not just lost seven colleagues, they'd also lost their ride home.  With no other option, a daring mission is launched that involved a much smaller Russian built shuttle based on a design from the 1960s. If the men aren’t brought home soon, not only will their lives be at risk but also the entire future of the International Space Station itself.  A Sony Music Entertainment production.

Summiting Everest takes years of preparation and a mindset that lets nothing get in the way. In 2006, Myles Osborne is hoping to become one of the youngest British climbers to reach the top. In just the week before his push for the summit, three climbers die. One, Lincoln Hall, is thought to have died only 12 hours before. Nothing can prepare Myles for what he encounters in the terrifying 'death zone' of the Himalayas' greatest mountain, and the life-and-death decisions he and his team are forced to make.

The Great Deception

The Great Deception

2024-02-2053:53

It’s 2008 and Columbian presidential hopeful Ingrid Betancourt and three US nationals have been held hostage by the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Columbia (FARC) for over five years. They are considered “VIP hostages" by the militant organisation. With numerous rescue attempts of other hostages ending in disaster, the Columbia and US governments are reluctant to make a move. But then one young intelligence analyst has a radical idea. What if they devised a plan that relied not on guns and bullets, but on audacious deception instead? If they can pull it off, it will rank among the greatest hostage rescues in history. If they can't, no one will live to tell the tale. A Sony Music Entertainment production.

Sean Irion has dedicated his life to rescuing animals.  From caring for his pets to nursing injured birds back to health as a kid, today he volunteers for Big Dog Ranch Rescue - saving dogs from natural disaster zones. Back in 2019 when a catastrophic category 5 hurricane pummeled the Bahamas for two days straight, he knew only two things: One, that thousands of pets and strays would be left fighting for their lives as a result, and two, that he had to get there as soon as possible to rescue them.

About sixty miles off the coast of Sitka, Alaska, four men continue to cling desperately for life. Together, they are tossed about in the churning icy waters as 100 ft high waves pummel into them.  So far, due to the 100mph winds, giant ocean swells and a relentless roaring blizzard, two helicopter crews have already tried and failed to rescue the men.  Sitka's US Coast Guard Station has only one helicopter left at its disposal. It is now, or never.  A Sony Music Entertainment production.

It's shaping up to be a quiet Friday night at the US Coast Guard's remote rescue station in Sitka, Alaska. With a violent storm due to sweep across the region at any moment, chances are no one would be crazy enough to be out in that kind of weather. But then a mayday call comes in.  An unknown vessel is in distress, somewhere in the frigid waters of the Gulf of Alaska.  Within an hour, windspeeds out there are hitting 150mph while waves are cresting at well over 100ft.  What ensues has been described as the most harrowing and tragic search and rescue mission ever attempted in the state.

In 1941, the German army invades Eastern Poland and thousands of Jews are forced into ghettos as part of a plan to persecute, and then ultimately eradicate, all Jews in Europe.   To evade capture, four Jewish brothers - Tuvia, Alexander, Asael and Aron Bielski - flee into the forest. But it is too late for most.  When many of their family are murdered, the brothers vow never to be captured.

Surrounding the forest, they begin their assault with only one objective in mind, to eradicate once and for all the Bielski Partisans...
