The History Channel unveils how much can learned by body language and other non-verbal communication. They analyze famous politicians’ and celebrities’ famous speeches and moments to see if they were lying or telling the truth.

Body language is a form of non-verbal communication, which consists of body posture, gestures, facial expressions, and eye movements. Humans send and interpret such signals almost entirely subconsciously.

John Borg attests that human communication consists of 93 percent body language and paralinguistic cues, while only 7% of communication consists of words themselves; however, Albert Mehrabian, the researcher whose 1960s work is the source of these statistics, has stated that this is a misunderstanding of the findings. Others assert that “Research has suggested that between 60 and 70 percent of all meaning is derived from nonverbal behavior.”

Body language may provide clues as to the attitude or state of mind of a person. For example, it may indicate aggression, attentiveness, boredom, relaxed state, pleasure, amusement, and intoxication, among many other cues.

The fate of prisoners of war and missing in action is one of the darkest chapters of the Cold War. Tens of thousands of American soldiers European survivors were sent to unknown destinations during World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War.

American soldiers captured in the Cold War – the enemy needs them as hostages and bargaining counters. Their own government denies their existence, leaving them to their fate.

Some escape and find their way home.  Others die in captivity – expecting the whole time that their government will “leave no Soldier behind” and rescue them.  Given the last century of American empire, this film is a shameful account of US government coverups, denials, and mishandling of POW situation.  The Red Cross has also been complicit – hiding records of prisoners of war to this day.
