The Pacific War was the largest naval conflict in history. Across the huge expanses of the Pacific Ocean, the two most powerful navies in the world found themselves locked in a death struggle. From the Arctic conditions in the Aleutians, to the appalling heat and swelter of the South Pacific, every conceivable type of naval activity was represented: carrier aviation battles, surface engagements, bitterly fought night-battles, the largest amphibious landings of the entire war and the stealthy, brutal battles waged by and against submarines. This series includes rare combat footage, exclusive interviews with veterans from both sides, rare commentaries from the Doolittle raiders and discussions with a number of key insiders – including one of the planners of the attack on Pearl Harbour. Hell in the Pacific: The True Stories is the complete and unique story of the last great naval campaign in history.

The Quest family and their bodyguard investigate strange phenomena and battle villains around the world.

Part intelligence thriller, part science fiction, Jonny Quest made a child’s adventure out of thwarting international espionage and sabotage with super-computers, state-of-the-art transportation to every corner of the planet, an apparently bottomless budget for building fantastic weapons, martial arts, and more. The fact that schoolboy Jonny, as well as his best friend, Hadji, and canine companion Bandit, were having adventures akin to those of James Bond was terribly exciting.

Young Jonny (voiced by actor Tim Matheson, later a co-star of Animal House and The West Wing) is the motherless son of government scientist Dr. Benton Quest. The latter conducts all manner of research from a remote island, where he lives with Jonny, Hadji, Bandit, and chief assistant Race Bannon, a rugged fellow who tutors Jonny but also provides muscle when the group is on assignment anywhere from the Arctic to Calcutta.

Dudley Rush is an artist with a difference. Eccentric and childlike, he insists of wearing his large lion ventriloquist glove-puppet on his hand whenever he draws the "Barney, the Bionic Bulldog" comic strip. Unhappy about having to spend what he considers valuable time working, he always procrastinates, which leads to him being late meeting the strip’s deadlines. This frustrates his long-suffering agent, Duncan Thomas, who often falls victim to Dudley’s practical jokes. Duncan frequently visits the Rush home; it’s quite obvious that he’s strongly attracted to Dudley’s lovely wife Muriel, which drives Dudley to bouts of excessive jealousy. Dudley is also annoyed at the excessive number of Muriel’s delicious cakes that Duncan delightedly tucks into when he visits. With Dudley, Muriel, and their attractive daughters Jackie and Susan, all being blessed with their own wonderfully weird, ready wit, life at the Rushes’ is never dull.
