"THE CAMERA NEVER LIES," ON ABC'S "20/20"
"20/20" reports on compelling stories of great caught-on-tape moments and the people behind them, on "The Camera Never Lies," SATURDAY, MARCH 16 (9:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. Anchored by Barbara Walters, reports include:
Colorado Killer: Travis Forbes claimed to be the last person to help Kenia Monge as she drunkenly stumbled away from a downtown nightclub. But his story unraveled when surveillance cameras showed him wheeling a sealed cooler into his workplace, putting on latex gloves, and turning off the security system. But it would take another terrifying attack months later before detectives could lock him away for good. (OAD: 11/11/11)
Nasty Neighbors: They say good fences make good neighbors. But what about video cameras and the internet? They are increasingly playing a role in neighborhood feuds. The results range from ridiculous bickering to high drama, all caught on camera and posted on the internet. But cameras can also document serious misbehavior, even neighbor on neighbor crimes.

Pets: Not all "criminals" are human� meet some of the animal species whose mischievous acts have been caught on tape! (OAD: 6/15/11)
TV Reporters: Television news reporters have their share of bleeps, bloopers and blunders� and when they're caught live on camera, they can change one's career or give the rest of us a big laugh. (OAD: 11/11/11)
(10:00 - 11:00 p.m.)
Heroes: When a hideous car crash occurs on a highway, why do some people rush in to help while others stand by, even snapping ghoulish photos on their smartphones? A team of noted psychologists hope to crack the code of bravery and teach us all how to unlock the superhero within. (OAD: 9/7/12)
Kitty Cam: National Geographic and the University of Georgia released the results of a cat behavior study after strapping small "kitty cams" to the collars of 60 pet cats in Athens, GA. The results were often cute and charming. But they were also brutal and have prompted a Los Angeles Times column calling for a ban of pet cats. (OAD: 9/7/12)
Firsts: From deaf people getting cochlear implants for the first time and women reacting to their pregnancy tests to high-schoolers learning they've been accepted to college and kids learning that Darth Vader is Lukes father, "20/20" explores the trend of documenting life-changing moments on video. (OAD: 9/7/12)
Public Displays of Affection: It's one thing to find out your partner's cheating, but how about being hit with photographic evidence of them cuddling and kissing with someone else? In the age of the ubiquitous camera and social networking, it's all too easy for cheaters to get busted. (OAD: 9/7/12)
Seniors Strike Back: We expect to see our grandparents enjoying walks on the beach, games of bingo, and early-bird dinner specials. We don't expect to see video of them unloading handguns at would-be thieves, knocking out an aggressive hoodlum on a city bus or beating back stick-up men with grocery store mangoes. "20/20" talks to some seniors who didn't think twice about fighting back, questions whether it's bravery or foolishness, and talks to one old man who says he's developed the ultimate method of defense. (OAD: 9/7/12)
The Camera Sleuth: A camera lost in a creek in New York's Adirondacks for three years is being returned to its owner thanks to clever detective work by a Vermont man who studied pictures on its memory card. "20/20" reports on the series of clues that led to the Brooklyn, NY camera owner. (OAD: 9/7/12)
