    Fascinating to hear Kennedy and a two faced Mississippi governor talking about implementing a court order regarding segregation and how Kennedy worked him into a corner. Johnson gives a great life lesson on how to influence people. Nixon says unbelievable things, how did he forget it was all being recorded?

    Three of America's most compelling presidents, Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon, bugged their White House offices and tapped their telephones. They left behind thousands of secretly recorded conversations, from momentous to mundane. In this documentary project, American RadioWorks eavesdrops on presidential telephone calls to hear how each man used one-on-one politics to shape history.

    Story

    Damn!!!!!!!! Whats up?!, super non-insightful Biography! If you have never heard of the Devil, and have lived in a hole your whole life, than by all means, buy this recording.
    But if you are a normal human, save your 66 Bean Pennies!
    Seriously, Most A&E Bios. all great! But this seems to just repeat the same facts everybody who has a vague idea of religion knows.
    I thought a Biography on Satan would have much deeper insight as to the myth of Satan and its creation, especially from other cultures. And another thing, the Bio. Seem to suggest that the majority of people actually believe in "The Devil" and his effect on mankind. which is non-sense, Everyone knows the reptilian over lords are our true masters, and we are their servents. I'm just saying this recording could have mentioned a blood orgy or two to spice things up.....

    Story

    More like Attila The Sweetheart, it is said that on hot summer days when the tribes didnt really feel like fighting, Attila would make ice cold lemonade for both armies. And when his tride won a battle, Attila would buy everybody ice cream and provide them each a slave for foot and back rubs. That Attila, ...heck of a swell guy!

    A fifth series from BBC Radio 4, in which Stephen Fry examines, with the help of experts, the highways and byways of the English language. In these four episodes he tells 'The Story of X': a letter holy and profane, sexy and chaste; discusses intonation, the "song" of English, and how cadence affects meaning; muses on the art and craft of conversation - and whether true conversation can happen on TV and radio - and ponders the meaning of meaning and the gap between brain and mouth that means language can never truly represent thought.

In 1940, after the evacuation of the British army from Dunkirk, Winston Churchill vowed that Allied Forces would return to "cleanse Europe of the Nazi Pestilence". The logistics of Operation Overlord were daunting, but an inspired campaign of deception successfully diverted Hitler’s attention away from the Normandy beaches until it was too late.

    Hard-working, dedicated, inventive, and ready to tackle any genre - that was Academy Award-winning director Robert Wise. Despite all the praise and awards, Wise could easily be called one of Hollywood's always working blue-collar directors. He helmed everything from B movies to Academy Award-winning blockbusters, all while managing to live a quiet life amid the glitz, glamour, and scandal of Tinsel Town. How this soft-spoken man managed to tame mega-stars' egos while directing film classics remains a mystery.
