Encounters with the Unexplained: Who Really Killed Jimmy Hoffa? & Was Mary Magdalene a Saint or Sinner? (2002)
In the afternoon of July 30, 1975, one of the most powerful and feared men ever associated with the American labor movement, James R. 'Jimmy' Hoffa, vanished without a trace from the face of the earth. Can DNA testing - not available in 1975 - finally provide the answer to exactly what happened to this complicated and enigmatic man with an improbably appropriate middle name - James Riddle Hoffa?
And in part two of this episode, new insight from an ages old conflict. The struggle with the Taliban fundamentalists in Afghanistan has given the world a disturbing, even frightening glimpse of the way they believe people - especially women - should be treated. Modern sensitivity is shocked by these revelations, but is this really anything new? Mary Magdalene, was she a saint or a sinner?
