Masters of the Air

Channel: Apple TV+
TX Time: 00h01
Genre: Drama, Period Drama

Masters of the Air

During World War II, airmen risk their lives with the 100th Bomb Group, a brotherhood forged by courage, loss, and triumph.

Based on Donald L. Miller's book of the same name, Masters of the Air follows the men of the 100th Bomb Group (the "Bloody Hundredth") as they conduct perilous bombing raids over Nazi Germany and grapple with the frigid conditions, lack of oxygen and sheer terror of combat conducted at 25,000 feet in the air.

Portraying the psychological and emotional price paid by these young men as they helped destroy the horror of Hitler's Third Reich, is at the heart of the series.

Some were shot down and captured; some were wounded or killed. And some were lucky enough to make it home.

Regardless of individual fate, a toll was exacted on them all.

From Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman - the producers of Band of Brothers and The Pacific.

The Curse of Oak Island 11

TX Time: 20h15
Genre: Reality

The Curse of Oak Island 11

With their boldest plans yet to solve the 228-year-old treasure mystery, Rick and Marty Lagina alongside their talented team are back like never before.

Working with representatives from Dumas Contracting Ltd., the Garden Shaft in the Money Pit area will extend the refurbished 82-foot deep, mid-18th century structure down some 20 feet deeper underground.

It is there where they hope to breach a mysterious tunnel discovered one year ago that runs almost directly beneath the shaft and into an area known as "The Baby Blob" where high trace evidence of gold, silver and other metals was previously detected through cutting edge water testing.

Meanwhile, the Lagina's Fellowship will proceed with a strategic core drilling program across the area in search of other valuable targets that Dumas can potentially help them reach by constructing new underground tunnels.

On Lot 5, located on the western side of the island, working with archaeologist Laird Niven and his associates, the team will continue investigating the entire area, including two mysterious stone features that may date back more than a century prior to the discovery of the Money Pit in 1795.

Last year, it was on this newly-acquired property that metal detection expert Gary Drayton unearthed not only an ancient Roman coin but also a lead barter token, which may be connected to the 14th century lead cross that was discovered back in 2017 at Smith's Cove.

Meanwhile, in the swamp, the team reconstitutes their investigations of numerous man-made structures, some of which, have been dated back as much as eight centuries.

As stunning discoveries continue to be unearthed during all of these endeavors on Oak Island, the team's research will lead to the most monumental journey overseas yet to multiple European and North American destinations.

These will offer new, shocking evidence that the medieval order of the Knights Templar may very well be connected to the world's longest-running treasure hunt.

In the Season 11 premiere, "On the Money": As Rick and Marty Lagina and their team relaunch their quest to solve the Oak Island mystery, they make a number of the most historic discoveries ever unearthed in North America.
