2014 Shark Week Shows:
Second Shooter, SharkAirs: August 4, 2014 - 9PM/8PM Central
On November 22nd, 1963 in Dallas Texas, shots rang out that changed the world forever. Jaws was still over a decade away, which may explain why no one recognized the tell tale shape of a triangular grey fin on the grassy knoll. Now a team of historians, mystery hunters, and marine biologists seeks to answer the question of whether or not a white shark was truly responsible for the assassination of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy.

Ice Pilots NWT brought viewers a glimpse of the harsh conditions of winter flying in the Arctic, but summer in the land of the midnight sun is no cakewalk either. Especially when dangerous wild fires rip through the dense forests, endangering persons and property alike. Luckily, the Shark Bombers are always ready to take to the air, with their specially modified water bombers each carrying thousands of litres of water and, for some reason, one great white shark.

How did this Aquatic Apostle find itself in the deserts of the Holy Land, and what kind of influence did it have on Jesus? Could this gentle giant have been Jesus' most trusted confidante?

Finding MengeledonAirs: August 7th, 2014 - 9PM/8PM Central
In the dying months of the war in Europe, Adolf Hitler became obsessed with the production of super-weapons that could turn the tide in favor of Nazi Germany. He tasked Dr. Josef Mengele, the "Angel of Death", with reviving the ancient and terrifying Megalodon shark in a bid to create an unstoppable naval weapon capable of targeting Allied ships. New evidence suggests that not only did Mengele succeed, but that after the war one of his Megalodons escaped with him to South America and now lives quietly in a villiage in Argentina.
