"Triangle Fire" on American Experience airs Tuesday, the 25th at 7 pm

Learn how a tragic factory fire led to workplace safety laws.

On March 25, 1911, a fire ripped through the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in New York’s Greenwich Village. Terrified workers tried to make their way downstairs, but the factory owners kept the doors on the ninth floor locked, and the inadequate fire escape soon crumpled. Hundreds of horrified on-lookers watched as young men and women jumped from the windows. By the time the fire burned out, 146 people were dead. The tragedy of the fire and the ensuing public outrage led to landmark legislation that gave New Yorkers the most comprehensive workplace safety laws in the country.

Ice Warriors - USA Sled Hockey airs on Monday, February 24th at 9 pm

Ice Warriors: USA Sled Hockey will be a portrait of the U.S. sled hockey team as they prepare for the Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. Sled hockey, also known as“Murderball on blades,” is played as aggressively as able-bodied hockey – but these players battle with their sticks, their sharp sled runners, and the serrated ice picks used to propel their sleds. Strapped into molded sleds, they’re often playing at eye level with the fast-moving puck. It’s a game of force, speed and strategy.

Ice Warriors - USA Sled Hockey airs on Monday, February 24th at 9:00 p.m.
