Newsmax TV anchorman John Bachman says his new television special "Heroes" chronicles ordinary Americans who are thrust into extraordinary circumstances and reveal the bright side of human nature.
"When you meet these people, you realize that the fundamental goodness of this country is still there, despite what you hear on most of the media coverage and the school shootings and all that stuff," Bachman told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

Bachman, who traveled the country with a camera crew for several months to interview these heroes, says it was a wonderful departure from the norm of bad news.
"We cover that, and it's important that we cover that, but it's nice to get a little departure and talk about this stuff that's really good, especially this time of year when you can kind of focus on the things that are right," he said.
"Heroes" can be seen on Newsmax TV and is the cover story of the December issue of Newsmax magazine, which focuses on the heroic acts of ordinary Americans.
The magazine spotlights 25 selfless men and women who saved lives while risking their own, and unflinchingly and without hesitation took whatever action was necessary to make life better for their fellow Americans.
They come from all walks of life: from the former Navy SEALs who died saving others during the terrorist attack in Benghazi to two neighbors who helped free three young women kidnapped and held hostage in Cleveland for 10 years.
Other stories include those of a teacher who gave her life to save first-grade students from a shooting rampage and 19 Arizona firefighters killed in the line of duty.
