Finding Jack the Ripper
Could Jack the Ripper have been the world's first trans-Atlantic serial killer? Can 21st century techniques and CGI 3-D autopsies crack this 19th century crime spree, while reversing decades of investigative assumptions? National Geographic joins retired U.K. murder squad detective Trevor Marriott to finally unmask the Ripper and possibly link him to other murders in Europe and the U.S.


45 minutes. TV-14. © 2011


Is It Real? Bermuda Triangle

Vanished From Alcatraz
New evidence suggests that at least one convict escaped from Alcatraz and survived. National Geographic investigates one of the most intricate prison escapes in history—three tireless inmates break from the fortress-like Alcatraz Island Federal Penitentiary and brave the frigid waters in a handmade raft. For nearly 50 years, it was assumed that these men drowned, but what if they didn't? National Geographic goes inside the U.S. marshals' investigation following the complex and tantalizing leads they've tracked to close this case.

Finding Anastasia
Did Romanov Princess Anastasia survive a Bolshevik firing squad or did she and her brother Crown Prince Alexis perish with their father, Tsar Nicholas II, before another firing squad in 1918? The chance find of human remains in a Siberian forest brings forensic anthropologist Dr. Anthony Falsetti in search of the truth. Marshalling DNA, ballistics and the very latest forensic analysis, an international team works to dispel the greatest myth of the 20th century and tell a real story more remarkable than any fiction.

Where's Amelia Earhart
As world famous aviator Amelia Earhart closed in on her record-setting attempt to fly around the world in July 1937, she disappeared somewhere over the Pacific Ocean—vanishing without a trace. Did she run out of fuel and crash into the sea? C ould she have survived? Investigators have built the case that Amelia Earhart was a pawn in an espionage plot for President Franklin D. Roosevelt, while eyewitnesses testified that she was captured by the Japanese military. Examining facts and evidence, National Geographic explores one of the most fiercely debated mysteries of all time.
