The Beatrice Six: Keith Morrison Investigates

When beloved grandmother Helen Wilson was murdered in Beatrice, Nebraska in 1985, six people were convicted.

However, Joseph White insisted he was innocent and his fight to prove this turned the case and town upside down.

The murder of Helen Wilson rocked Beatrice, Nebraska, but no leads panned out.

Then a farmer began his own investigation, joined the Sheriff's department, and made arrests.

Six people were convicted of the crime and three even confessed. But one of the six, Joseph White, fought for two decades to overturn his conviction.

When DNA evidence from the crime scene was finally tested, and a new investigation into the murder was opened, the results turned the case and the town upside down.

America's Book of Secrets with Lance Reddick 4

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.

But nearly two decades earlier, in 2002, a man named Gary McKinnon claimed he had discovered evidence that a secret military space program already existed... after hacking top-secret Pentagon and NASA computers.

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?
