Codebreaker
A documentary that tells the story of one of the most important people of the 20th century. Alan Turing set in motion the computer age and his World War II codebreaking helped save two million lives.

Yet few people have heard his name, know his tragic story, or understand his legacy. In 1954, Turing committed suicide at age 41 after being forced to undergo hormone therapy to "fix" his sexual orientation.

He left behind a lasting legacy and lingering questions about what else he might have accomplished if society had embraced his unique genius instead of rejecting it. 100 years after his birth, an international production team takes viewers on a journey to rediscover the man and the mystery.

Starring Ed Stoppard, Henry Goodman

Led Zeppelin: Celebration Day
On December 10, 2007, Led Zeppelin took the stage at London's O2 Arena to headline a tribute concert for dear friend and Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun. What followed was a two-hour-plus tour de force of the band's signature blues-infused rock 'n' roll that instantly became part of the legend of Led Zeppelin.

Founding members John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant were joined by Jason Bonham, the son of their late drummer John Bonham, to perform 16 songs from their celebrated catalog including landmark tracks "Whole Lotta Love," "Rock And Roll," "Kashmir," and "Stairway To Heaven."

Although 20 million people applied for tickets, the band's first headline show in 27 years was seen only by the 18,000 ticket holders who were fortunate enough to have secured seats through the worldwide lottery.

The Levi Effect: The Story of Levi Leipheimer
The Levi Effect is the story of America's premier cyclist, Levi Leipheimer as told by him and those closest to him.

Beyond the race results, beyond the training metrics, the story of Levi Leipheimer is best told by those around him. The people whose lives have been impacted by his successes know his sacrifices, his drive, his ambitions, and can get past the quiet demeanor of an athlete who has risen through the ranks of professional bike racing to become America's premier cyclist.

This film is the story of a man told by those who ride with him, work with him, and live with him: the people who are all part of The Levi Effect.

The event will begin with an introduction from Levi where he will set up the documentary The Levi Effect. Immediately following the debut of this personal account, Levi will return with some of his friends for an in-depth panel discussion about the current state of professional cycling and what the future of the sport looks like. Panelists include actor Patrick Dempsey, filmmaker Frank Matson, and others.

Starring Levi Leipheimer
