The History Channel is a basic cable channel in the United States that focuses mainly on popular history topics like UFOs, secret Nazi super-weapons, and the Da Vinci Code. It is owned by A&E Networks, which in turn is 50% owned by The Walt Disney Company. It has produced/distributed several franchise-licensed Star Trek related documentary-style shows.
During 3 through 5 October 2006, the channel's web site streamed the 40 Years of Star Trek: The Collection live. A documentary, titled Star Trek: Beyond the Final Frontier, was produced of the event and registration and five months later aired on the channel itself.
With shows like Pawn Stars and Swamp People continuing into their second decades on the air, the History Channel is no stranger to hit shows. Whether they're about history or not, fans tune into the channel to see all sorts of reality-based programming, and maybe learn a thing or two along the way.
Covering topics ranging from potatoes to Walt Disney World, each episode of the series took viewers on a journey into the past and made learning legitimately fun. Explaining how things came into existence could have been dry and boring, but Modern Marvels used the TV medium to spruce up history and science.
Though it only lasted for a single season, American Eats opened the door for food on the History Channel and seamlessly blended the culinary and historical worlds together. The series tells the story of foods that are often associated with the U.S. and traces their history and even their place in modern culture.
Many of the best cooking shows aren't about competition, and American Eats was a low-stress journey into the fun side of food. Executed with a quirky tone, the series included legitimately important history with a smattering of fun facts that kept things carefree.
Unger was the perfect choice to host the show, and he brings the same energy he had with The Daily Show into his History Channel series. The story of the U.S. states often presented a challenge and the viewer was brought along on a fascinating ride as Unger attempted to nail down the real history of the United States.
For all the silly programs that the History Channel is known for, some of their more serious content can also present history in a way that is downright harrowing. Vietnam In HD uses never-before-seen footage and personal accounts to tell the story of the Vietnam War from those who were there.
Most of the footage was shot by the soldiers themselves and puts the viewer on the ground in a way that even the best Vietnam War films couldn't. Never meant to glorify the history presented, the show is a sobering look at the horror of one of the 20th century's deadliest conflicts.
Though it is a History Channel original, Forged In Fire has found a larger audience by becoming one of the best game shows on Netflix. Pitting the world's best blacksmiths in hot competition, the show tasks them with creating edged weapons from history.
One of the History Channel's biggest money-makers has always been WWII, and the World War's extensive history has been recounted in numerous original programs. Battle 360 charts the course of the U.S.S. Enterprise as it engaged in multiple battles in the Pacific Theater during the war.
Instead of relying on scant footage, the series recreates each moment with painstaking accuracy using CGI. Though it looks somewhat cheesy by today's standards, Battle 360's commitment to accuracy brings one small sliver of history to life in a way that is engaging and easy to understand.
Taking cues from older shows like American Eats, The Food That Built America once again delves into the world of history through food. Each episode chronicles the history of American food and the people who revolutionized the culinary world with their inventions and ideas.
Going beyond the food itself, the show explores the history of restaurants and food technology that spawned from intrepid Americans with enterprising spirits and is so much more than a Food Network-style experience. History Channel has produced several shows in the That Built America series, but none have been as relatable and accessible as the food-centric outing.
Certainly History's longest-running dramatic show, the series brought Vikings to life with an accuracy that was sorely missing in other media, and the Channel positioned itself as a TV powerhouse in the process. Refusing to editorialize too much, Vikings struck a nice balance between gripping storytelling and actual history in a way that only the History Channel could.
Reported findings of elevated risk of adverse events associated with calcium channel blocker use in hypertensives may be due partly to unmeasured confounding by indication. To determine if such confounding occurs, we conducted a retrospective cohort analysis of 77 196 Pennsylvania Medicaid recipients aged 18 to 61 who were treated with antihypertensive medication between 1990 and 1992. All diagnoses and dispensed prescriptions during the year prior to study entry were examined. Prior recipients of multitherapy (n = 18 763) were more likely to have had previously diagnosed risk factors (OR = 1.31 [95% CI, 1.30-1.33]) than subjects with prior monotherapy (n = 11141). New initiators (n = 47292) were less likely to have had previously diagnosed risk factors (OR = 0.48 (95% CI, 0.47-0.49)) than previous users (n = 29904). The likelihood of being prescribed calcium channel blocker rather than other monotherapy was significantly higher for subjects diagnosed during the previous week with arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease OR = 7.78 (95% CI, 2.72-22.28), P
