VIRUS OF VIOLENCE ­ Lt. Col. David Grossman, one of the nation's foremost experts in the field of human aggression and the roots of violence and violent crime, believes children have become increasingly desensitized to violence through video games.

MAXIMUM SECURITY ­ They crawl through prison heating ducts to eavesdrop on hardened cons. They interrogate violent felons, and threaten them with time in a solitary confinement unit so tightly secured it's considered one step away from hell. Maximum Security takes viewers behind t he walls of Massachusetts' Walpole Penitentiary, following a team of Corrections Officers whose task is to investigate crime among the state's most dangerous offenders. (6/99) CHRONIC CROOKS ­ 10% of the populations is committing 90% of the crime-it seems like a good reason for police to target repeat offenders. But are they violating the criminals' rights?

CRIMINALLY INSANE ­ This show takes viewers on an unprecedented journey through the Clifton T. Perkins hospital in Jessup, Maryland, a maximum-security institution for the criminally insane.

FORBIDDEN CARGO ­ Each year, the government spends billions of dollars trying to stop smugglers who transport illicit contraband across US borders. Yet the undeclared goods just keep on coming: drugs, animals, antiques, currency-even cigars. Why are we losing the costly border game, and is it worth the enormous price we're paying? (3/00) GUILTY...OR INSANE? ­ Can a person be "too crazy" to know right from wrong? This program takes a hard look at how the justice system deals with mentally ill offenders. Should they be judged by a different standard or held accountable and punished when they commit a crime? Is mental instability or temporary insanity an excuse for violent behavior? What should be done with offenders whose mental illness is beyond their control? [NOT AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE]
