Dictator’s Playbook – 6 x 60
Cream Productions for Twin Cities PBS
They were ruthless men with unchecked power, controlling their people with an iron fist. Suppressing all dissent, they demanded absolute loyalty, jailing or killing those who opposed them. They ruled by force of personality, but were plagued by secret fears and private demons. What drove their thirst for domination and control? How did they seize and wield power? What forces rose up against them or resisted them in secret? How did they finally come to the bitter end? These questions are more relevant today than ever. We’ll answer them in six immersive hours. As different as these men were from each other, all of them followed a series of essential steps, from seizing power to eliminating enemies—an unwritten Dictator’s Playbook.

They are the most iconic animals on Planet Earth—giant crocodiles, magnificent elephants, stupendous whales. To see them is to marvel—and to ask a surprisingly challenging question: Where did these amazing creatures come from?
Lineage takes us on a global adventure to find the answers. Starting today, with animals we can see and film, we travel millions of years into the past to unravel their ancient stories. Along the way we’ll meet an extraordinary cast of ancient characters, from knee-high elephants to crocs that would dwarf anything alive today. We’ll follow each lineage right up to today, and investigate where each of our iconic species is heading in this age of global change. Every whale in the ocean, every elephant struggling to survive, carries its ancient lineage into the future.
Coming to PBS in Summer of 2019
