Friday, August 8 at 9:30 p.m.

At the end of World War II, Japan was under American control.  The trial for war crimes of Emperor Hirohito was widely anticipated, but it never took place.  This film sets out to explore why and to ask whether the Emperor escaped his responsibility. 

Tuesday, July 29 at 9 p.m.

The Camorra, the Naples mafia, is Italy's bloodiest organization crime syndicate.  It has killed thousands and despite suffering many setbacks is as strong as ever.  It is into drug trafficking, racketeering, business, politics, toxic waste and even the garbage disposal industry.  Talking to Camorra insiders who have never spoken to the media before, and drawing on interviews with Camorra victims who are fighting back, investigate Italy's deadliest mafia to learn how it has survived so long in a country at the heart of Europe, and what it will take to defeat it. 

Mondays at 9 p.m., beginning July 28
