S.W.A.T. 5

Inspired by the television series and the feature film, S.W.A.T. stars Shemar Moore as a former Marine and locally born and raised S.W.A.T. sergeant, tasked to run a specialised tactical unit that is the last stop in law enforcement in Los Angeles.

Torn between loyalty to where he was raised and allegiance to his brothers in blue, Daniel "Hondo" Harrelson strives to bridge the divide between his two worlds and acclimate to his new duties as the legal guardian of a teenager.

Hondo's elite unit includes David "Deacon" Kay, an experienced S.W.A.T. officer and dedicated family man who always puts the team first.

Then there's Christina "Chris" Alonso, a skilled officer and the team's canine trainer; and Dominique Luca, an expert driver who gets them in and out of high risk situations.

Also on the team is Victor Tan, who started in the LAPD Hollywood Division and uses his confidential informants in the community to help the team.

Finally there's Jim Street, the team's cocky newest member who is re-instated to S.W.A.T. after being fired for compromising the unit.

Responsible for the management of all Metro Division S.W.A.T. units is Commander Robert Hicks, a senior LAPD official with the Special Operations Bureau.

Following Captain Jessica Cortez's departure for the FBI, the Mayor assigns Lieutenant Piper Lynch to SWAT as a tactical consultant, where she challenges the team's field strategy, which raises questions about her loyalty.

With Hondo leading the charge, these dedicated men and women bravely put themselves at risk to protect their community and save lives.

In the Season 5 premiere, "Vagabundo": In the aftermath of his decision to speak out in the press, Hondo retreats to a quiet town in Mexico to reassess his life and professional future, only to find himself reluctantly drawn into one local family's fight for justice.

Eldorado: Everything the Nazis Hate

A glittery nightclub in 1920s Berlin becomes a haven for the queer community in this documentary exploring the freedoms lost amid Hitler's rise to power.

Filmmaker Benjamin Cantu weaves together interviews, reenactments and historical footage to tell this illuminating story.

The Eldorado nightclub in late 1920s Berlin was legendary and a pillar of Berlin's reputation as a party capital and a place of sexual diversity.

Gays, lesbians and trans people danced side by side with Marlene Dietrich and Charles Chaplin.

Even a high-ranking Nazi like Ernst Röhm mingled with the guests.

But the Eldorado became a target of the Nazi movement early on - its closure in 1932 symbolizes a totalitarian turning point.

The world's first visibly queer community was destroyed by the Nazis in just a few years.

Many who had just learned about a new freedom were suddenly persecuted and murdered.

This documentary is the first of its kind to sensitively trace the fates of queer people in the upheaval between the Weimar Republic and Nazi Germany.

Newly-discovered archival footage, interviews with last eyewitnesses and historically sensual recreations bring us closer to a queer community that was already pioneering our time, a 100 years ago.
