The Balkans in Flames

The collapse of Yugoslavia in the 20th century was the result of a multitude of wars and conflicts that plagued Southeast Europe for over a hundred years.

The appalling cruelties of the past still linger in many hearts and minds in large parts of the region, resulting in ongoing violent confrontation, one of the reasons for the continued deployment of the UN Blue Helmet soldiers.

For some people, it is impossible to forget the bloody past.

This documentary series gets to the bottom of the causes of the conflicts and wars.

The statements of contemporary witnesses and international experts assist the investigation of the crisis in Southeast Europe.

It is an examination of the genesis of the state, the era of dictator Tito, the Jugoslav wars of the 1990s, and the influence of the past on the present.

In the series premiere, "Tinderbox Yugoslavia": We begin with the search for traces in Yugoslavia's prehistory.

Under the influence of changing rulers and empires, the country's structure is formed over centuries as home to five nationalities with three languages and four different religions.

However, in the early 20th century, the first ethnic conflicts begin.

Only after World War II does the popular hero and captivating dictator Tito succeed in uniting a peaceful Yugoslavia.

But after his death, the country plunges into chaos.

The Real Housewives of New York City 14

Get ready to take a fresh bite out of the Big Apple.

Six women - Sai De Silva, Ubah Hassan, Erin Lichy, Jenna Lyons, Jessel Taank and Brynn Whitfield - are taking the city that never sleeps by storm.

From looking for love to building business empires, they're navigating the ups and downs of their friendships all while juggling families and careers, and looking fabulous while doing so.

Sai De Silva is a content creator who chronicles her fashion and lifestyle, garnering attention and partnerships from Dior, Fendi, Audemar Piguet, Bentley, Vogue and more.

She's a busy mom of two, loyal friend and devoted wife to her husband, David, who manages their household so that Sai can run the digital empire she has built from the ground up.

A Brooklyn native, honest and straightforward, Sai's friends would say she's "as New York as it gets."

Her life may seem just as put together as her posts, but her polished exterior begins to crack when the passing of her mother forces her to revisit their complicated relationship.

Ubah Hassan is a Somalian model, philanthropist and entrepreneur whose outgoing personality enters a room before she does.

Channeling her zest for life, she's the creator of her personal hot sauce company, Ubah Hot, which she hopes is her ticket to making it big in New York.

After an initial boost from landing a spot on Oprah's Favorite Things, she's looking to take her business to the next level, and due to her trying upbringing and desire for total control, she feels the pressure to do it all on her own without the help of investors.

Born and raised in Manhattan, Erin Lichy is a social butterfly who tends to find herself floating amidst the drama and isn't afraid to stir the pot.

Her naturally keen eye for spotting the next trend and die-hard work ethic has led to a prominent reputation in the New York real estate scene, in addition to running an interior design firm.

With the only things more important than her career being her three children and husband Abe, this cosmopolitan is the definition of an overachiever who loves nothing more than to prove she can do it all.

Jenna Lyons is the former President and Executive Creative Director of J.Crew Group and now Co-Founder and CEO of direct-to-consumer beauty brand LoveSeen.

A seasoned entrepreneur, tastemaker and style icon, Jenna resides in her SoHo loft with her teenage son and loyal dog companion, Popeye.

A new addition to this group, Jenna surprises even herself as she starts to let her guard down and open up about trauma from her early years.

In this new chapter of her life, Jenna is learning to embrace her vulnerability and lean on her friends like never before.

Jessel Taank is a fashion publicist, wife and new mom to twin boys who rarely sit still.

Growing up in London, Jessel aspired to chase the American dream, and her hustle ultimately landed her in the Big Apple.

Raised in a tightknit yet strict Indian household, she continuously struggles to share intimate details of her life with her parents across the pond.

A natural-born problem solver, Jessel is always seeking resolution, but her British sense of humour sometimes gets lost in translation with the New York sensibilities surrounding her.

Hailing from a small Midwest town, Brynn Whitfield moved to New York and never looked back.

A flirtatious, single socialite, Brynn is always the life of the party and the apple of many eyes.

With her communications career currently on hold, Brynn is in search of what she really wants out of life and attempting to heal from past hardships.

While she craves stability and having the kind of family she longed for as a child, her fear of commitment and busy schedule jet-setting the world tend to get in the way.

In the Season 14 premiere, "New Era, New York": Brynn and Jessel catch up with Sai at a champagne playdate in Brooklyn.

Ubah and Erin dish over coffee in Washington Square Park.

The ladies who find themselves caught in a cheesy web of rumours confront each other at style icon Jenna Lyons' girls' night.

Tournament of Champions 4

Guy Fieri's culinary competition, Tournament of Champions, returns with a supersized fourth season.

The skills and abilities of the most talented chefs from the East and West coast will be pushed to the limit in the most difficult bracket-style culinary competition.

This year's lineup features 14 tournament rookies who are on a quest to shake up the competition.

The pressure is intense, and emotions are high as the elite chefs do not know who their opponents will be and what cooking challenges they will face, with the latter determined by the dreaded randomizer.

This season, Guy has added a twist with randomizer wild cards that progressively get harder and harder in each round.

Each battle will feature blind judging by a rotating panel of judges consisting of big names in the food world as the chefs watch their critiques from backstage.

For this year's finale Guy is pulling out the ultimate wild card by inviting a surprise judge who is one of the most respected and revered chefs in the world.

After eight weeks and 31 grueling head-to-head battles, one talented chef will win it all and be crowned champion, taking home the coveted Tournament of Champions belt and a $100,000 cash prize.

Simon Majumdar and Justin Warner deliver real-time play-by-play as all the action unfolds in front of a live audience.

Hunter Fieri follows all the action backstage, capturing competing chefs' reactions as they watch the rotating panel of food icons blindly judge their dishes and learn who is moving ahead and who is going home.

Judges include Michelle Bernstein, Scott Conant, Cat Cora, Rocco DiSpirito, Lorena Garcia, Alex Guarnaschelli, Nancy Silverton, Daniela Soto-Innes, Ming Tsai, Jonathan Waxman, Andrew Zimmern, and one of the most highly regarded chefs to be revealed in the finale.
