Written in Blood

Simon transports viewers on a fascinating journey of discovery as he meets some of the world’s most popular crime fiction writers to discuss the influence that true crime’s grim realities has had on their writing. Each episode delves into a different criminal case using reconstruction and real life footage.
Special Agent Gibbs (Mark Harmon) leads his team of special agents from the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, which investigates crimes involving the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps.

Get up close to the action with the lifesavers of Sydney’s Bondi Beach. It’s all here, from mass rescues and resuscitations to shark sightings and surfing accidents. In one episode, the lifesavers even catch a gang of juvenile pickpockets.
With her no-nonsense honesty and razor-sharp wit, Judge Judith Sheindlin single-handedly reinvented courtroom reality TV. The former New York family court judge knows the law inside out and is always determined to get to the core of the often emotional cases before her. Others may try to imitate her, but there’s only one Judge Judy!
