As the world's demand for fish and other seafood increases and the technology available to commercial fisherman becomes more sophisticated, the annual harvest from global seaports has grown tremendously in recent years. However, the rise of industrialized fishing has not come without consequences, and many environmentalists and oceanographers believe that the current demand for fish and the methods used to fulfill it are taking an irreparable toll on the world's oceans, with some speculating that the seas could be literally fished-out by 2048 if current trends do not change. Filmmaker Rupert Murray offers an in-depth look at the crisis in the world's oceans in the documentary End of the Line, in which experts discuss some of the key factors behind the looming shortage - increased demand for endangered species, irresponsible methods employed by major fishing lines, lax enforcement of current regulations - and what can be done to head off the famine before it's too late.

The tale of the Trojan Horse is one of the most captivating stories in Greek mythology. Immortalized in the literary blockbusters of Homer and Virgil, it features some of the most famous faces in Greek legend, from Helen of Troy to Aphrodite and Achilles. Since the 19th-century discovery of the site of Troy in modern-day Turkey, historians have searched tirelessly for evidence of a real Trojan War, Troy's demise, and the truth behind this world famous myth. Now, archaeological evidence is mounting that suggests a Trojan War did indeed happen. What's more, the city's defenses were so impenetrable, that some historians are asking whether the Trojan Horse–generally thought to have been a myth–could actually explain how the enemy got inside the walls. Now, scientists explore how discoveries of charred bones and arrowheads point toward a violent showdown around 1200 BC, exposing the true scale of Troy's defenses and supplies, and investigate the real possibility that a Trojan Horse could have been used to trick Troy into defeat.
