Secrets of Interrogation is a one-hour special that examines the science behind the world's most high stakes mind games and features some of the foremost experts in interrogation. We know "they have ways of making you talk," but what, exactly, are those "ways"? And how effective are they?

Anatomy of a Takedown – Sunday, 2/21 at 9 PM E/P
At any time there are tens of thousands of fugitives in the U.S., and more than 7,000 on the run abroad. Most are caught quickly - in 2007, U.S. Marshalls took down 36,000 federal fugitives and 60,000 state fugitives - but others manage to evade capture for months, years, even decades. And the modern world makes life on the run easier than ever before. The hunted can completely change appearance courtesy of plastic surgery or across continents in hours thanks to the jet plane. But that same modern world also provides the police with ever more sophisticated tools for a successful manhunt: from e-surveillance to airborne tracking, from DNA to CCTV analysis, from forensics to psychological profiling. Anatomy of a Takedown tells the remarkable true stories of recent manhunts to reveal the science and technology that lie behind them.
Secrets of the Secret Service – Sunday, 2/28 at 9 PM E/P
Secrets of the Secret Service is a no holds barred investigation of America's most mysterious law enforcement agency.
