Gulag: The Story, Peak & Death 1945 - 1957 (S1, EP3)
 
 
The prisoners and populations of the newly occupied territories in the East, such as the Polish, were suspected of anti-Sovietism, and many were sent to the camps. The condition of women, who formed a quarter of camp prisoners, was tragic. At the end of the 1940s, two million prisoners were crammed into the camps and struggling to survive. This very quickly led to a decrease in economic viability. With Stalin's death on 5 March 1953, Khrushchev's Thaw commenced and one million prisoners were freed. In 1956, Khrushchev denounced Stalin's crimes. There was an immense shockwave. Gradually, the Gulag would disappear. The Gulag Archipelago by Solzhenitsyn was published in 1973, creating an international stir, which finally brought down the wall of indifference. After the fall of Communism, the Russian political leaders wanted to start afresh. All signs of the gulag progressively disappeared from the Russian landscape and its memory. More Info >

Dogfights, Tuskegee Airmen (S2, EP17)
 
 
They were told they were racially inferior. They were told they lacked the intelligence to handle modern fighter aircraft. They were not supposed to succeed. But in the face of bigotry and ignorance the Tuskegee Airmen prevailed. With skill and bravery the squadron shattered racist stereotypes and their exploits became the stuff of legend. On July 18, 1944, pilots Wendell Pruitt and Lee Archer, the Gruesome Twosome, soar into battle over the Po river valley in Northern Italy. When German fighters attack the bomber stream they're tasked to protect Pruitt and Archer move to intercept. After a gruelling dogfight Archer manages to shoot down the German, his first victory. Elsewhere in the bomber stream, pilot Lucky Lester moves to engage a flight of four Me109s. After quickly dispatching the first 109 he nearly collides with the debris of the downed plane. Then, he quickly downs two more. At the end of the day, the Tuskegee Airmen score nine victories, their highest total for a single day yet. On August 24, 1944, pilot Charles McGee cruises towards Czechoslovakia. He and the rest of the Tuskegee Airmen are escorting bombers to an airfield in Pardubice. McGee spots an Fw190 trying to attack the bombers and quickly intercepts it. The 190 leads him on a wild chase across a burning airfield before he finally manages to knock it down. October 12, 1944: While returning to base after an escort mission Pruitt, Archer, and the rest of the Tuskegee Airmen encounter a huge formation of German aircraft. The skies explode, machine guns chatter, engines roar. In the frantic action Archer manages to down three aircraft bringing his war total to five. The Tuskegee Airmen now have an ace. March 24, 1945: The Tuskegee Airmen escort a bomber stream to Berlin. Pilot Roscoe Brown is among them. Just south of Berlin the Germans send Me262s, a jet fighter, to attack the Americans. The Tuskegee Airmen manage to down an incredible three 262s.

Churchill's Bodyguard, Love Him To Death (S1, EP13)
 
 
Walter Thompson, Winston Churchill's personal bodyguard for over 20 years, saved the great statesman's life on at least 13 separate occasions. But Thompson was much more than simply Churchill's protector. Friend, confidante and companion, Thompson was, for many years, the only person Churchill could turn to for a normal conversation. From Thompson's early years at Scotland Yard to his last day in Churchill's service after his defeat in the 1945 General Election, this series examines the strong personal bond that developed between the two men over the many years they spent together. Drawing content from Thompson's own diaries, and a wealth of archive material, this is a compelling insight into the dedication, bravery and resourcefulness of the man who, in effect, was Churchill's closest friend during some of the most turbulent years of the 20th Century.

The bottle of 1896 Hennessy Cognac was uncorked in front of hundreds of people. The surviving World War II veterans from one of history's greatest military missions were about to raise their silver goblets one last time ending a decades long tradition. It was time for the veterans to hold this final toast. They could wait no longer. Their numbers had dwindled to just a few. Many of the names of the 80 flyers who took part in the April 18, 1942 raid on Japan may not be familiar to most, but collectively they will always be known in history as the Doolittle Tokyo Raiders. Long ago, these American flyers, aboard 16 B-25 bombers, had accomplished a daring mission that changed the morale of an entire nation. The aviators, led by famed commander Lt Col James Harold Doolittle, had taken the fight directly to the enemy for the first time in World War II and delivered payback for Japan's sneak attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.

Richard interviews Sirhan's lawyer, and several researchers who affirm the evidence is crystal clear: Sirhan Sirhan did not fire the fatal shots that killed Bobby Kennedy.

Museums are where America displays its wondrous treasures of the past - often strange and curious remnants of the momentous events that have shaped their history. Behind each artefact is yet another story to be told and secrets to be revealed - often tales brimming with scandal, mystery, murder, and intrigue. Whether a diary from an arctic exploration, a stone giant thought to be the remnant of a race of enormous people, or a futuristic house that almost changed the world, the iconic items within their walls all have something to tell us about who we are and what we've become. Hidden in the Kansas Museum of History in Topeka is a piece of machinery that inadvertently contributed to one of the nation's most tragic natural disasters. On display at the Connecticut Air and Space Center is a craft that may alter the story of man's first flight. And the Cold War Museum in Virginia is home to a deadly contraption that is linked to one of the most perilous top secret missions in U.S. history.

The dying days of World War II. Hitler was in his bunker, unable to accept defeat. But most Nazis knew the game was up. It was time to start hiding evidence of their crimes. A unit of SS officers were instructed to transport boxes to the Salzgammergut lake district in the Austrian Alps. Their destination was one of the most remote and deepest lakes in the region: Lake Toplitz. On May 1st, 1945, eyewitnesses still alive today saw the SS Officers throwing the boxes into the lake. Local rumours grew: The boxes were full of stolen gold. It was the biggest bank heist in history. The Nazis stole $500M of foreign gold. When the gold ran out, they tore it from the mouths and fingers of concentration camp victims. Most of the gold was sent to Switzerland, but as the war turned, the Nazi knew they had to hide it wherever they could, and most was sent South, to Bavaria and Austria. In 1959 a German journalist and former Marine decided to get to the bottom of the mystery of Lake Toplitz once and for all. He persuaded his editor to finance the first large scale underwater exploration of the lake using a rope, lights, a camera and a grappling hook. After ten days they found a box and heaved it to the surface. Would it really be full of gold. What Lohde found was evidence of something even more extraordinary. More Info >

This is due to a number of difficulties, such as, the vast distance meaning space flight will take six to nine months. The extremely thin Martian atmosphere means we must develop different landing techniques to get to the Martian surface.

Forever enshrined in myth by an assassin's bullet, John F Kennedy's presidency has often defied objective appraisal. This portrait offers a fresh assessment of the man, his accomplishments and his unfulfilled promise. This film features interviews with Kennedy family members and historians including Robert Dallek, Robert Caro, and Evan Thomas. Beginning with Kennedy's childhood years as the privileged but sickly second son of one of the wealthiest men in America, the film explores his early political career as a lacklustre congressman, his successful run for the US Senate, and the game-changing presidential campaign that made him the youngest elected president in US history. This probing, definitive biography provides a fresh look at an enigmatic man who has become one of the nation's most beloved and mourned leaders. With the benefit of recently opened archives, this program re-evaluates Kennedy's strengths and weaknesses in the Oval Office as he navigated some of the most explosive events of the mid-20th-century: the disastrous failure at the Bay of Pigs, the urgent demands of an increasingly impatient civil rights movement, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and the escalating conflict in Southeast Asia. The film also recounts his struggles with life-threatening illnesses, and his efforts to keep them hidden from the public. This program will offer a new perspective on his complicated private life, including his relationship with his wife, and his close connection to his younger brother, Robert.

What was the astronomical reality behind the star that, according to the Gospel of Matthew, guided the Magi to the young Jesus? This episode examines almost 20 centuries of theories, including meteors, novae, supernovae and comets, but is the truth to be found in a combination of astronomy and astrology? Recent theories suggest that the 'star' was the planet Jupiter in a series of conjunctions with other planets, stars and constellations, and that these conjunctions were interpreted by the Magi astrologers and priests of the Zoroastrian religion as heralding the birth of the Jewish Messiah.

This is the story of a world where territories and own frontiers were built by the slave trade. A world where violence, subjugation and profit imposed their routes. The history of slavery did not begin in the cotton fields. It is a much older tragedy that has been going on since the dawn of humanity. From the 7th century on, and for over 1200 years, Africa was the epicentre of a gigantic traffic of human beings traversing the entire globe: Nubian, Fulani, Mandinka, Songhai, Susu, Akan, Yoruba, Igbo, Kongo, Yao and Somali. Over 20 million Africans were deported, sold and enslaved. This criminal system thrived, laying the foundations of empires around the world. Its scale was such that, for a long time, it has been impossible to relate it comprehensively. And yet, it raises a fundamental question: how did Africa end up at the heart of the slavery routes?

Museums are where America displays its wondrous treasures of the past - often strange and curious remnants of the momentous events that have shaped their history. Behind each artefact is yet another story to be told and secrets to be revealed - often tales brimming with scandal, mystery, murder, and intrigue. Whether a diary from an arctic exploration, a stone giant thought to be the remnant of a race of enormous people, or a futuristic house that almost changed the world, the iconic items within their walls all have something to tell us about who we are and what we've become. Tucked away in the Big Sandy Heritage Center in Pikeville, Kentucky is a cotton-stuffed doll tied to a horrific incident that defies belief. On display at The Chemical Heritage Foundation in Philadelphia is a vibrant silk swatch that forever changed the world of fashion. And The Katy Depot Museum in West, Texas is home to an artefact linked to one of the most spectacular publicity stunts of all time.

In France a tiny village has attracted treasure hunters for the last 70 years. At the end of the 19th Century, the Priest of Rennes-le-Chateau, Berenger Sauniere became fabulously rich. And nobody quite knows how. Some say the priest discovered buried treasure, but others claim Sauniere uncovered a secret so profound, it could rock the foundations of the Catholic Church. Some believe Sauniere had uncovered evidence of a bloodline of Christ that still exists today, and that this was the Holy Grail: Known as the San Greal, it was actually the Sang Real, or Royal Blood - not a material treasure at all, but a secret the Vatican were paying Sauniere to keep quiet about. His story became the inspiration for the Da Vinci Code, the bestselling book of modern times. But was it all just a hoax? Sauniere's housekeeper, confidante and later lover, Marie Denarnaud was the only person who knew what Sauniere had really found. Thirty years after his death, she began to tell her story to Noel Corbu, a businessman down on his luck who had been living in Sauniere's old estate in the village. She said Sauniere had found a vast treasure but had only taken some if it and she'd reveal the hiding place at the moment she was about die. But then she had stroke and could not speak nor talk, and Corbu was forced to dig throughout the village looking for the treasure. But in the 1960's, two French journalists claimed that Sauniere hadn't found a material treasure at all, but something much more important, and the myths about Berenger Sauniere's discoveries reached fever pitch.

The story of how Adam and Eve came to be thrown out of their paradise is one of the most famous in the world. According to Genesis the first man and woman lived in a luscious garden, where fruit grew plentifully and all animals lived harmoniously. When they were enticed by the serpent to eat the fruit of the tree of knowledge, God cast Adam and Eve out of Eden condemning them to a life of hard agricultural labour: 'through painful toil you will eat food from the earth. It will produce thorns and thistles for you and you will eat the plants of the field.' For many the story is considered an allegory; a moral lesson not based in fact. But for others, the possibility of God's Paradise on Earth being a real place remains, fuelled by the Bible's intriguingly specific description of its location somewhere in the modern Middle East. Now the discovery of a huge complex of ancient stone monuments in southern Turkey, between the headwaters of the Biblical river of the Tigris and Euphrates, has sparked the interest of those in search of a physical Eden. Just like the story of Adam & Eve's fall from grace, the monument records the moment of humanity's conversion from a nomadic hunter-gatherer existence to its eventual settlement in agricultural communities - from a life in harmony with nature to a life of hard toil in the fields. Decorated with ornate carvings of animals and surrounded by giant, monolithic depictions of human-like forms, the stone circles of Gobekli Tepe are the oldest stone monuments ever built by humans. And they are forcing archaeologists to re-think their understanding of the beginnings of human civilization.

But now, Bible experts and historians Helen Bond and Joan Taylor lay out a striking alternative version of events, that sees women central to the origins of Christianity. But why has this pivotal role played by women disappeared from history? In a journey that takes them to ancient caves in Israel and catacombs in Italy, Helen and Joan call into question centuries of Christian thought. Were female disciples actually crucial to Jesus' mission? Preaching, healing, baptising and even financing the movement. If they're right millions of Christians may have to rethink the origins of their faith.

We lift the lid on some of history's great mysteries by tunnelling deeper, travelling wider, looking more closely, asking harder questions and searching for evidence with more determination than ever before. We are taken to places far and wide and will encounter conspiracy theories, cover-ups, strange phenomena, unexplained happenings and mysterious findings - in short, a whole host of unusual goings on that have had a massive bearing on how we view history today. Mary Magdalene is a key figure in the Christian faith. She travelled with Jesus as one of his followers and is said to have witnessed Jesus' crucifixion and resurrection. Within the four Gospels she is named at least 12 times, more than most of the apostles. During the Middle Ages, Mary Magdalene was given the reputation in Western Christianity of being a repentant prostitute, something which is nowhere supported by the canonical gospels. But who really was this vital part of the Christian story? What can we discover of her life? What historical evidence can be uncovered?

In 2014 historian Margarita Torres discovered two Arabic parchments hidden in an Egyptian library. The documents record 'The Cup of the Messiah' travelling from Jerusalem to Spain in the year 1055 as a gift to King Ferdinand of Leon. Examining an ornate chalice in Leon that once belonged to King Ferdinand's daughter, archaeologist Julian Henderson reveals that hidden behind the medieval gold embellishment is a simple onyx cup. Margarita Torres argues that this onyx cup is the one held by Jesus. Torres finds evidence to support her theory in a medieval painting of the Last Supper commissioned by King Ferdinand's daughter. The Arabic parchment contains a tantalizing description; it says that the cup arrived in Spain with a piece missing.

But why has this pivotal role played by women disappeared from history? In a journey that takes them to ancient caves in Israel and catacombs in Italy, Helen and Joan call into question centuries of Christian thought. Were female disciples actually crucial to Jesus' mission? Preaching, healing, baptising and even financing the movement. If they're right millions of Christians may have to rethink the origins of their faith.

What are the provable historical facts behind the story of the world's most famous religious figure? Jamie travels to Jerusalem to research and attempt to uncover the real story of Jesus Christ. It's Jamie's job to take a long, hard, dispassionate and even-handed view of a fascinating subject and he'll have a team of world-renowned experts to help him sift through the latest evidence and theories. They'll be drawn from both sides of the argument - we'll hear from those that passionately believe there is firm proof that the man we know as Jesus existed and from those that contest that he simply did not.

We lift the lid on some of history's great mysteries by tunnelling deeper, travelling wider, looking more closely, asking harder questions and searching for evidence with more determination than ever before. We are taken to places far and wide and will encounter conspiracy theories, cover-ups, strange phenomena, unexplained happenings and mysterious findings - in short, a whole host of unusual goings on that have had a massive bearing on how we view history today. Mary Magdalene is a key figure in the Christian faith. She travelled with Jesus as one of his followers and is said to have witnessed Jesus' crucifixion and resurrection. Within the four Gospels she is named at least 12 times, more than most of the apostles. During the Middle Ages, Mary Magdalene was given the reputation in Western Christianity of being a repentant prostitute, something which is nowhere supported by the canonical gospels. But who really was this vital part of the Christian story? What can we discover of her life? What historical evidence can be uncovered?

In 2014 historian Margarita Torres discovered two Arabic parchments hidden in an Egyptian library. The documents record 'The Cup of the Messiah' travelling from Jerusalem to Spain in the year 1055 as a gift to King Ferdinand of Leon. Examining an ornate chalice in Leon that once belonged to King Ferdinand's daughter, archaeologist Julian Henderson reveals that hidden behind the medieval gold embellishment is a simple onyx cup. Margarita Torres argues that this onyx cup is the one held by Jesus. Torres finds evidence to support her theory in a medieval painting of the Last Supper commissioned by King Ferdinand's daughter. The Arabic parchment contains a tantalizing description; it says that the cup arrived in Spain with a piece missing.

Museums are where America displays its wondrous treasures of the past - often strange and curious remnants of the momentous events that have shaped their history. Behind each artefact is yet another story to be told and secrets to be revealed - often tales brimming with scandal, mystery, murder, and intrigue. Whether a diary from an arctic exploration, a stone giant thought to be the remnant of a race of enormous people, or a futuristic house that almost changed the world, the iconic items within their walls all have something to tell us about who we are and what we've become. Housed in the Santa Clarita Valley Historical Society is a chunk of cement and nails that played a role in one of the deadliest disasters in California History. The Philadelphia History Center is home to a taxidermied dog that displayed death-defying courage in the trenches of World War I. And at the 1875 Delta Saloon in Virginia City Nevada is an artefact that strikes fear in the hearts of many. It is said that this gaming table brought about the demise of the men who once owned it.

The story of how Adam and Eve came to be thrown out of their paradise is one of the most famous in the world. According to Genesis the first man and woman lived in a luscious garden, where fruit grew plentifully and all animals lived harmoniously. When they were enticed by the serpent to eat the fruit of the tree of knowledge, God cast Adam and Eve out of Eden condemning them to a life of hard agricultural labour: 'through painful toil you will eat food from the earth. It will produce thorns and thistles for you and you will eat the plants of the field.' For many the story is considered an allegory; a moral lesson not based in fact. But for others, the possibility of God's Paradise on Earth being a real place remains, fuelled by the Bible's intriguingly specific description of its location somewhere in the modern Middle East. Now the discovery of a huge complex of ancient stone monuments in southern Turkey, between the headwaters of the Biblical river of the Tigris and Euphrates, has sparked the interest of those in search of a physical Eden. Just like the story of Adam & Eve's fall from grace, the monument records the moment of humanity's conversion from a nomadic hunter-gatherer existence to its eventual settlement in agricultural communities - from a life in harmony with nature to a life of hard toil in the fields. Decorated with ornate carvings of animals and surrounded by giant, monolithic depictions of human-like forms, the stone circles of Gobekli Tepe are the oldest stone monuments ever built by humans. And they are forcing archaeologists to re-think their understanding of the beginnings of human civilization.

We know that the Vatican archives hold the personal documents of past popes and that they house important historical pieces such as Galileo's trial transcript, King Henry VIII's annulment request - even letters written by Abraham Lincoln. But what else is hidden away in the Vatican library - a place that is out of bounds even to cardinals? Why is this historical treasure trove so shrouded in secrecy?

The British airborne assault on the bridges at Arnhem in September 1944 was meant to cut months off the end of the war and save thousands of lives. But it was a bridge too far. The paratroops were surrounded by elite Nazi units and forced to surrender after an heroic last stand. But hundreds managed to evade capture and, after weeks behind enemy lines, were saved.

The prisoners and populations of the newly occupied territories in the East, such as the Polish, were suspected of anti-Sovietism, and many were sent to the camps. The condition of women, who formed a quarter of camp prisoners, was tragic. At the end of the 1940s, two million prisoners were crammed into the camps and struggling to survive. This very quickly led to a decrease in economic viability. With Stalin's death on 5 March 1953, Khrushchev's Thaw commenced and one million prisoners were freed. In 1956, Khrushchev denounced Stalin's crimes. There was an immense shockwave. Gradually, the Gulag would disappear. The Gulag Archipelago by Solzhenitsyn was published in 1973, creating an international stir, which finally brought down the wall of indifference. After the fall of Communism, the Russian political leaders wanted to start afresh. All signs of the gulag progressively disappeared from the Russian landscape and its memory. More Info >

World War I shaped the 20th century. It sparked the Russian Revolution and it launched America as a world power. The fault line from its failed peace settlement led to a second terrible world war barely 20 years later. We live with its unresolved consequences in the Middle East, the Balkans and Ireland. It began as a clash in the Balkans which grew to engulf Europe and the world. Britain joined in, more to protect her great empire than for the defence of small nations. The merciless pattern of the war was set early on by Austro-Hungarian atrocities against Serbian civilians.

Museums are where America displays its wondrous treasures of the past - often strange and curious remnants of the momentous events that have shaped their history. Behind each artefact is yet another story to be told and secrets to be revealed - often tales brimming with scandal, mystery, murder, and intrigue. Whether a diary from an arctic exploration, a stone giant thought to be the remnant of a race of enormous people, or a futuristic house that almost changed the world, the iconic items within their walls all have something to tell us about who we are and what we've become. In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the Mutter Museum contains carefully preserved human remains that once placed a central role in a major political scandal. The Field Museum in Chicago, Illinois is home to a massive skull belonging to a beast that terrorised people on the African savannah. And at the Museum of Natural and Cultural History in Eugene, OR stands a replica of an otherworldly object that represents a creative and ingenious heist.

The Germans were halted by the Allies at the Battle of the Mame, fell back to high ground and dug in. The Allies followed suit. The resulting line of trenches stretched from the Channel to Switzerland. Now 11 million French and Belgian civilians were under occupation. German brutality was no myth. Resistance was ruthlessly suppressed. Civilians, including women and children, were massacred, used as human shields, and sent to concentration camps as hostages and forced labourers.

Museums are where America displays its wondrous treasures of the past - often strange and curious remnants of the momentous events that have shaped their history. Behind each artefact is yet another story to be told and secrets to be revealed - often tales brimming with scandal, mystery, murder, and intrigue. Whether a diary from an arctic exploration, a stone giant thought to be the remnant of a race of enormous people, or a futuristic house that almost changed the world, the iconic items within their walls all have something to tell us about who we are and what we've become. The Conrad Hilton Community Center Museum in Cisco, Texas contains a pair of handcuffs that once bound the wrists of an infamous bank robber with a clever disguise. The Long Island Museum in Stony Brook, New York displays a glamorous dress once warn by the prime suspect in a scandalous murder case. And at the Arizona Military Museum in Phoenix Cultural History a simple leather bag that once belonged to a legendary prisoner of war reminds visitors of a daring escape from one of the country's toughest prisons.

In the early 1800s a party of men headed by a Thomas Beale set out from Virginia to the Colorado Rocky Mountains where they discovered gold. After mining a fortune in gold ore they exchanged it for treasure, which they then buried in Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains. Beale recorded the secret location of the treasure in three numerical codes that when decoded would reveal the treasures value, its location and to whom it belonged. Then in 1897 Clayton Hart discovered the three coded papers and soon after found out that they could reveal a great treasure in a pamphlet that revealed a deciphered paper revealing its value. With the help of his brother George, Clayton spent the next 50 years trying to uncover the location of Beale's treasure. They went to great lengths to break the ciphers, including assistance from America's top code breakers and even the supernatural! The Hart's never discovered the treasure and to this day its location is still unknown. Some even question whether there ever was a Thomas Beale and a treasure or if the whole thing is just an elaborate hoax. More Info >

War for Europe meant war for the world. Germany gambled that Britain might risk everything to protect her empire, even victory on the Western Front. So, to divert British resources, maverick German commanders led the British in a dance across the Pacific, Africa and the Middle East. They became legends in Germany and Britain - men like Admiral Graf von Spee, who inflicted Britain's greatest naval defeat for 250 years. The global war sucked in Africans, Chinese and Indians to serve in France. Meanwhile, the war in Africa exploited its people and left behind a wasteland but also sowed the seeds of self-determination.

Museums are where America displays its wondrous treasures of the past - often strange and curious remnants of the momentous events that have shaped their history. Behind each artefact is yet another story to be told and secrets to be revealed - often tales brimming with scandal, mystery, murder, and intrigue. Whether a diary from an arctic exploration, a stone giant thought to be the remnant of a race of enormous people, or a futuristic house that almost changed the world, the iconic items within their walls all have something to tell us about who we are and what we've become. The Hollywood Museum in Los Angeles, California displays a silk dress, a costume from a movie at the heart of a legendary curse believed to have taken the lives of some of cinema's biggest stars. The Strong Museum of Play in Rochester, NY has a sample of a small, putty-like material that eventually was moulded into a classic American plaything. And at the Massachusetts Historical Society in Boston, Massachusetts contains a simple faded document that served as a crucial piece of evidence in a sensational murder case.

According to legend, he was Britain's greatest King. Hi name was King Arthur. He led his Knights of the Round Table from Camelot, a vast, spectacular castle built on a hill, and was supposed to have bravely fought Anglo-Saxon invaders and united the country. But there's very little evidence he really existed. History wasn't been written in the dark ages, an era said to have been ruled by barbarism and chaos. The only way to really prove he existed was to find something with his name on it, maybe even Excalibur or the remains of the Round Table. Maybe even Camelot itself. In the 1960's a team of archaeologists, led by the outstanding excavator of his day, Leslie Alcock, set out to prove the myth was real by digging where tradition had the location Camelot to be , a hill just off the A303 in South Cadbury, Somerset. Using state of the art geophysical surveying technology they established just where the most important areas on the large 18 acre hill were to dig, and after five summers of digging discovered Dark Age fortifications dated exactly to the time King Arthur was supposed to have lived, and a great hall, suitable for King or leader of some kind. Proof, they believed, of Arthur, or someone very like him existed. More Info >

This is the story of one of the world's last, great train journeys, a 4000 kilometre epic that links two oceans, The Indian and The Pacific. The train joins the eastern and western seaboards of Australia. We board the train in Sydney for the long journey across a continent to Perth. The train has the character of a small town, a place where people will eat and sleep as they travel. It's over 600 metres long and we spend time with Greg, the train manager, as final preparations are made for departure.
