As actor John Wilkes Booth becomes increasingly obsessed with removing Lincoln from office, a secret cabal forms, and ultimately empowers Booth to carry out an event that will change America forever.

        Campaigning for 16th president of the United States, Abraham Lincoln arrived onto the national stage as "Honest Abe." But was he really a simple frontiersman or a brilliant strategist who manipulated his public image, using newspapers, photography, and even folksy imagery to win over voters? Lincoln's abilities may have begun in the backwoods, but he applied them throughout his life—honing his powers of persuasion in courtrooms across Illinois, running for a Senate seat and dealing with national crisis as the president. With the combination of dramatic re-creations, scientific discoveries, rare photos and interviews with historians, National Geographic reveals the hidden side of Lincoln and the well-orchestrated moves that took him all the way to the White House.

        The dog is the ultimate human creation. With 400 breeds and counting, the dog is more varied in size and behavior than any other species on the planet. National Geographic looks at man's evolutionary manipulation of dogs' appearance, talents and temperament—and the accelerating efforts to create breeds to suit our needs (more than 80 percent of today's breeds did not exist 150 years ago). From desirable traits like supersensitive hearing and smell to the unintended consequences of genetic diseases, learn how nature and man have partnered to deliberately create new and specialized versions of man's best friend.

        For over 500 million years, the jellyfish has survived in our oceans. Today, global warming and pollution may be contributing to a population explosion, as billions of these sometimes venomous creatures increasingly swarm around our beaches and shorelines. And though they have no bones, blood or brain, some jellyfish are armed with a deadly arsenal unlike any other on the planet. National Geographic dissects the fascinating physiology of this living fossil, from its 24 clustered eyes down to the tips of its stinging tentacles, and examines how man's impact on the environment may be creating a growing invasion.
