Why Did the Bible Include Certain Books and Not Others?

I have a good friend on (and outside of) Facebook who posted an apologetics video from my wall summarizing evidence for the resurrection of Jesus. This in turn sparked a conversation with one of his friends about the issue of which books were chosen to be included in the Bible.

This person's best defense was an appeal to the faulty sourced used on the National Geographic and History Channels with their presentations of historical documentaries on the Bible. Why didn't the History Channel and other programs daring to pontificate on the books of the Bible include solid evangelical scholarship?  The answer to that question still remains a mystery.
