This January, everyone's favorite reluctant traveler returns to the departure gate when AN IDIOT ABROAD 2: THE BUCKET LIST touches down at SCIENCE. After his tour of the Seven Wonders of the World, Karl Pilkington could be considered an international jetsetter, however, his recent global exposure has made him even more resistant to the call of the open road. Nevertheless, world-class tormentors Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant prove that one man's anguish can be another man's amusement, as they send him around the world to fulfill his Bucket List. Now Karl can only hope that his quest to accomplish the definitive list of "things to do before you die" doesn't kill him first.

What makes us good or evil? It's a simple but deeply unsettling question. One that scientists are now starting to answer. ARE YOU GOOD OR EVIL meets the researchers who have studied some of the most terrifying people behind bars - psychopathic killers. But there was a shock in store for one of these scientists, Professor Jim Fallon, when he discovered that he had the profile of a psychopath. And the reason he didn't turn out to be a killer holds important lessons for all of us. We meet the scientist who believes he has found the moral molecule and the man who is using this new understanding to rewrite our ideas of crime and punishment.

JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH

Premieres March 12 at 10:00 PM (ET/PT)

Using stunning CGI, the latest satellite imagery and beautiful locations around the world, the story of how the Earth works has never been seen like this before. And in Richard Hammond's hands it is a story that has never told like this either!
