Documentary Series, History
Hosted by Lance Reddick, America's Book of Secrets is a one-hour, non-fiction series that asks the intriguing question: What if there is a book that serves as a repository for America's most closely guarded secrets?
A book that — throughout time — has been carefully passed down from trusted hand to trusted hand?
This program tells the fascinating truths behind some of the most famous and infamous stories in American and world history.
Some stories will delve deep into the past, while others will be ripped right from today's headlines.
America's Book of Secrets goes behind the scenes to reveal never before seen stories, secrets and insights, delving far deeper than any "authorised tour" or "official report".
Exclusive interviews with historians, insiders and experts, along with news clips, original footage and CGI graphics help illustrate the amazing truths behind the many extraordinary stories that lie deep within the pages of America's Book of Secrets.
In the Season 4 premiere, "The Secret Space Programme": On 20 December, 2019, the newest branch of the armed services was established - Space Force.

Does this suggest that the US has a much greater presence in space than the public is aware?
Could we even have occupied bases on the Moon and Mars?
In the second episode of the weekly double bill, "Protecting the President": The United States has experienced four presidential assassinations, and two more assassination attempts nearly succeeded.
But how many more occur that never reach the public?
And how far do we go to protect the commander in chief?
