  • This epic, touching and stunningly shot odyssey tracks the last living Neanderthal, Ao, in his heartbreaking quest to find survivors of his clan. Through Ao’s story, this unique film retraces the history of the dying Neanderthal species which disappeared 30,000 years ago, after a 300,000 year reign over the planet.
  • A look at the evolution of Albert Einstein's theory of relativity, and Einstein's relationship with Eddington, the first physicist to understand his ideas.
  • The film depicts astronauts Lovell, Jack Swigert and Fred Haise aboard Apollo 13 for America’s third Moon landing mission.

  • Something the Lord Made tells the story of the 34-year partnership that begins in Depression Era Nashville in 1930 when Blalock (Alan Rickman) hires Thomas (Mos Def) as an assistant in his Vanderbilt University lab, expecting him to perform janitorial work. But Thomas' remarkable manual dexterity and intellectual acumen confound Blalock's expectations, and Thomas rapidly becomes indispensable as a research partner to Blalock in his forays into heart surgery.
  • Hawking is a BBC television dramatisation of physicist Stephen Hawking's early career while at the University of Cambridge.
  • When the space shuttle Challenger blew up in 1986, it was the most shocking event in the history of American spaceflight. The deaths of seven astronauts, including the first teacher in space Christa McAuliffe, were watched live on television by millions of viewers. But what was more shocking was that the cause of the disaster might never be uncovered.
  • October Sky is based on the true story of Homer Hickam, a coal miner's son who was inspired by the launch of Sputnik 1 to take up rocketry against his father's wishes, and who eventually became a NASA engineer.
