Ascent of Money  "From Bullion to Bubbles"  How did money evolve from a crude system of coins that were worth only the value of the metals they were made of to a complex global financial system of credit, treasury bonds, hedge funds and credit default swaps that have shaped the course of human history? Niall Ferguson begins his journey in Bolivia, where 500 years ago, mines built by Spanish conquistadores, using forced Incan labor, produced so much silver coinage that the currency lost its value. In Italy, however, the roots of the modern financial world, in which currency's value is based on trust, began to take shape: A system of loans and credit between Jewish lenders and Christian merchants evolved in Venice, the Medici family developed the modern-day banking system and wars between city states created the bond market. In Amsterdam, the East India Company began to sell shares of stock to the public in the early 1600s, and in Paris, a Scottish fugitive named John Law saw in this new market an opportunity for an unscrupulous scheme - not unlike Bernie Madoff's - that created the world's first stock market bubble and, after its collapse, sparked a revolution.

Hawaii: Roots of Fire   HAWAII: ROOTS OF FIRE goes down below the Hawaiian Islands in a search for the hidden forces that drive the planet's largest and most active volcanic system. The film follows earth scientists as they work among the volcanoes of the Big Island of Hawaii, pursuing clues and compiling evidence in a quest to shed new light on the mysterious inner Earth process that has been producing giant volcanoes in the middle of the Pacific Ocean for more than 75 million years. Scientists have long been puzzled over the source of the huge quantities of lava erupting out of Hawaii's massive volcanoes. D

Sleeping Monsters, Sacred Fires: Volcanos of New Mexico   For 25 million years, volcanos spewed molten rock and ash across New Mexico, forming craters, super volcanos, cinder cones, lava flows and peak-less mountains. Over time, these massive eruptions also planted the seeds of civilization and shaped the identity of New Mexico and its people, particularly American Indians. SLEEPING MONSTERS, SACRED FIRES: VOLCANOS OF NEW MEXICO captures stunning examples of volcanos across the southwestern state. D
