Discovery Civilization kicks off February 2010 with an intriguing investigation of one of the most iconic symbols of America with UNSOLVED HISTORY: WHITE HOUSE FORENSICS. Then, from the front lines of a brutal war zone where streets and reputations are vehemently defended – often to the death – comes the two-part special premiere of GANG WARS. And, back by popular demand, history’s female murderers – more horrifying and intriguing than their male counterparts – are revealed in the Season 3 premiere of DEADLY WOMEN.
