It's the anniversary of the first motion picture that was made, in 1894, when Thomas Edison Studios filmed a comedian named Fred Ott sneezing.

It's the birthday of landscape painter Albert Bierstadt, born in Solingen, Germany (1830), who joined a survey team in the American western frontier in 1859 and sketched the magnificent scenery he witnessed, including the Rocky Mountains, the Yosemite Valley, and the Merced River.
And on this day in 1927 the first transatlantic telephone call was made, from New York City to London.

"In God's Name," that airs from 8-10 tonight here in Denver on KCNC-Channel 4. It focuses on 12 of the world's most influential spiritual leaders, probing their thoughts and following their daily routines.
