Agatha and the Truth of Murder

Stream the trilogy on GBH Passport May 11
This British alt history drama weaves together two historically-accurate events — the 11-day disappearance of Agatha Christie and the murder of Florence Nightingale Shore, the god daughter of Florence Nightingale, in 1926 — to explore how Christie’s involvement in the case influenced her subsequent writing. While certain dramatic liberties have been taken, this is a real treat for Agatha aficionados with the usual tropes (you just know the primary suspects are bound to end up together at a countryside manor) and plenty of references to her work. This is the first of three Agatha Christie films originally produced for the UK’s Channel 5, Agatha and the Curse of Ishtar and Agatha and the Midnight Murders round out the trilogy. —Devin

NOVA: Hindenburg — The New Evidence

Stream Stream free from May 20 through June 15
On May 6, 1937, the German zeppelin Hindenburg exploded in a giant fireball above Lakehurst, New Jersey, killing dozens of passengers and abruptly ending what was supposed to be a new era of airship travel. The chain of events that ignited Hindenburg’s hydrogen remains one of the biggest mysteries in aviation history. Importantly, it was one of the first massive disasters caught on film. Now, more than 80 years later, new footage showing the airship’s crash from a fresh angle has surfaced, and a new generation of scientists are trying to piece together what went wrong through a series of novel experiments. —Devin

Inside the Met

Stream on GBH Passport starting May 21
When New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art started planning its 150th birthday celebration for 2020, little did they know that COVID-19 would come along to shut down the world and close the museum’s doors to the public for the first time in its history. The pandemic, combined with urgent demands for social justice in the wake of George Floyd’s murder, forced a reckoning for the Met, prompting them to reimagine what an art museum can and should be. In this three-part series, you’ll get unprecedented access to the inner workings of a major cultural institution as it grapples with its very identity. —Ron

Professor T

Stream season 3 on GBH Passport starting May 27
If you haven’t caught up with this clever Belgian mystery series, there’s no time like the present. Jasper Teerlinck (Koen De Bouw) is an eccentric criminal psychology professor at Antwerp University who is an advisor to the police, working with a detective who was once his student. He has a brilliant mind but also several neurological disorders which make him complex, difficult and unpredictable. Seasons 1 and 2 are already available on GBH Passport, while the third (and final) season — which unexpectedly finds the Professor in prison — comes along later this month. And on July 11, you can look forward to a new English-language adaptation of the series starring Ben Miller and Frances de la Tour! —Ron
