As the conflict continued, countries in all corners of the globe became deeply entangled in their own theatres of war. In the desert the Afrika Korps seemed certain of their successful capture of Egypt. But yet another change of British commander saw the arrival of a man who created his own desert legend, a legend to match Rommel. Bernard Montgomery had not been the first choice for the role but his meticulous planning and flair for strategy would mean crushing defeat for the armies of the Reich. The tide of war had begun to turn on the Axis powers. Germany could no longer keep up with the supply and demand of war. At Stalingrad the besiegers became the besieged as the Russians encircled the German Sixth Army. It was a crushing blow and, coupled with the almost simultaneous German defeat at Leningrad, it would be a blow that Germany would never quite recover from. With renewed vigour the USA began an offensive campaign that saw German skies fill with USAF planes and key territories regained from the Japanese. With these new victories firmly secured Churchill and Roosevelt met to discuss the ultimate war aim - the unconditional surrender of all Nazi forces.

In 1944, Hitler ordered the full-scale production of what he called the Miracle Weapons. A new breed of aircraft designed to change Germany's declining military fortunes. As a result, the first jet fighters were unleashed on the world. The potentially devastating ME262 and Arado 234 were underdeveloped, and their moderate successes could not prevent the desperate situation which resulted in the introduction of the dangerous ME163 Kommet and the disastrous Heinkel HE162, the 'People's Defender', more dangerous to its pilot than the enemy. Featuring rare archive footage, stunning 3D computer graphics and rare film of the last surviving jet aircraft, this is a sinister glimpse into what might have been.

This definitive series opens a pandora's box of weird, wonderful and scary weapons from World War II. A few were so fantastical that they never got beyond the conception stage. Others were developed, tested and taken to prototype. Some were then used in battle to terrifying effect. From deathrays and giant wire traps in the sky to ensnare bombers, to flying saucers, warships hewn from icebergs and rocket-propelled tanks, the imagination and ingenuity of Allied and Nazi weapons experts knew no bounds in their frenzied efforts to overcome the enemy and win the war.

In this episode, we see how across the world the forces of the Axis were in retreat. In the sands of the desert Rommel had been overwhelmed by the Allies and driven out of Africa. A new legend was born in the shape of Bernard Montgomery. Across the sea the Germans were being pushed into Sicily and then onto mainland Italy. Faced with the prospect of being on the losing side, Italy deposed Mussolini and surrendered to the Allies. Italy's landscape became the scene of hard fought battles more suited to World War I. At sea the Battle for the Atlantic turned in the Allies favour as German U-boats were driven from the ocean by ever more powerful attacks. Hitler's policy of never giving ground to the enemy resulted in one final great tank battle near the Russian city of Kursk. But it was to be of no import, the Nazis failed and a year of dramatic advances began for the Red Army. With the forces of Nazism so obviously on the defensive the Allied leaders gathered to discuss the next big push - the invasion of Western Europe: D - Day.

By 1942, the tide of war had finally started to swing in the favour of the Allied forces. As the industrial might and great cities of Germany suffered as never before, Hitler promised revenge. Soon, vengeance weapons were developed and deployed, a turning point in the technological history of warfare. The V1, otherwise known as the Doodle Bug, would cause havoc in the streets of Britain's capital. However, as the Allied forces closed in on the Third Reich in a desperate attempt to stop the onslaught, the V2 was launched for the first time. In the dying days of the Third Reich, who would have believed that such a weapon could have been produced? A weapon, if given more time, that could have completely altered the outcome of the war. Featuring rare archive footage, stunning 3D computer graphics and rare film of the last surviving rockets, this is a privileged glimpse into the world of Hitler's arsenal.

Soon, Moscow had the means to build one of their own. The Cold War and the philosophy of Mutually Assured Destruction had begun in earnest.

The world held its breath as the Cold War between two nuclear superpowers came to a near miraculous and peaceful end. But the world also learned of a mysterious virus that defied a cure and triggered a global pandemic. Wall Street brokers became the new rock stars as the stock market soared and the sluggish '70s turned into the 'go-go' '80s. This series gives extraordinary insight into a decade that had a profound impact on the politics, technology and culture of today, by exploring significant events and individuals that played a part in shaping The Eighties. After the economic hardship of the 1970s perhaps a period of excess was inevitable. Mammon was king as wealth and materialism assumed a dominant place in American culture and politics. It's a decade of junk bonds, S&L bailouts and pervasive Wall Street corruption. Tom Wolfe wrote about the "Masters of the Universe," and Michael Milken, Ivan Boesky and Charles Keating went from the business page to the front page as their criminal activities were exposed. And in a classic case of art imitating life, a line from a motion picture seemed to set the tone for the entire decade. More Info >

The anti-abortion group the Army of God conducted a murderous campaign that included planting a bomb at the 1996 Olympics. The Unabomber, Ted Kaczynski, terrorized the nation with his lethal mailings. And in the worst domestic terrorist attack to date, Timothy McVeigh killed 168 fellow Americans, including 19 children, when he bombed a federal office building in Oklahoma City. In a horrific attempt to copycat this tragedy, two Colorado high school students staged a massacre of their own on the anniversary of both Waco and Oklahoma City. And it was in 1998 that most Americans first learned of Osama bin Laden and his newly formed organization, Al Qaeda. More Info >

Outside the Soviet Union, however, they were busy infiltrating German High Command, British Intelligence and America's Manhattan Project, constructing the world's first atomic bomb. Soon, Moscow had the means to build one of their own. The Cold War and the philosophy of Mutually Assured Destruction had begun in earnest.

A 21m-tall Norman tower and some other stonework is all that's left of a great castle built exactly 900 years ago and around which grew up the town of Bridgnorth in Shropshire. The castle was occupied for around five centuries, surviving at least four lengthy sieges, until finally it fell to Cromwell's army in the English Civil War. He left it much as it is today, leaning at an angle of 15 degrees, three times more than the famous leaning tower of Pisa. The rest of it is gone, destroyed or plundered along with all of the town's early records. The people of Bridgnorth asked the team to try to paint a picture of what it might have looked like in its heyday.

In Germany, 1945 with the surrender of the German Reich, the questions surrounding the post-war order, the victorious powers' spheres of influence, and of course, the atomic bomb. The bomb would shape the lives of the entire world community over the next four decades: the technological arms race, the fear of eradicating the entire human race, and nuclear destruction would be burned into people's minds and have an influence on all areas of human life. From 1945 onwards, the two superpowers start their struggle to impose their ideological influence on the world. On the one hand, the democratic market economy of the US and, on the other, the communist, planned economy of the USSR. Follow the major events and incidents that addressed the question of what system is best, what system would prevail. When in 1957 the Soviets successfully launch Sputnik 1, the first artificial Earth satellite, the race for supremacy also begins in space. Only in 1969, with the perfectly organized US lunar mission, the two super-powers are on a par with each other. From the beginning of the Cold War conflict, Germany is the major ideological battlefield for the Soviets and the Americans as they try to win over the hearts and minds of the German people in the eastern and western part of the divided country.

When Jimmy Carter came to power, the CIA became more discreet. The agency completely failed to spot the rise of Islamic fundamentalism, and failed to foresee the fall of the Shah and the advent of the Ayatollah Khomeini. After an attempted intervention turned into a disaster, Carter was going to dismantle the agency. But the USSR's invasion of Afghanistan forced the US government to intervene and to reactivate the CIA. The agency would, for a while, concentrate its activities in Latin America. But under the Reagan presidency, the CIA convinced the leadership that the USSR had huge weaponry, rekindling an arms race that proved fatal for the Moscow regime. With the fall of the Soviet bloc, the CIA found itself deprived of its chief enemy.

Rec
 
 
On the morning of December 7, 1941, Japan's war machine attacked Pearl Harbor, killing over 2,300 American servicemen. The conventional story is that America was caught sleeping that day and was hit without warning. But newly declassified documents from US Naval intelligence and the FBI reveal a very different tale, one of Japanese and German spies studying Pearl Harbor long before the assault with US agents watching them the whole time. So, how was the US still caught so tragically off guard? Modern historians are determined to find out.

By the Spring of 1944 it seemed obvious that the Allies would have to mount an invasion of Western Europe in order to bring about the end of the war. In an elaborate game of double cross the Allied forces managed to convince Germany that this attack would happen at the French port of Calais. In fact the real target lay further to the west, in Normandy. Other troops landed simultaneously in southern France and by the end of the summer 'Free French' leader Charles De Gaulle led a victorious entry into Paris. In the Pacific the noose grew ever tighter around Japan after the capture of more territory and the destruction of the last of Japan's naval strength. Everywhere the Nazis were being rolled back but there would be no swift end to the conflict. On 20th July an assassination attempt was made on Hitler but failed. A bomb exploded in a meeting room and killed three members of Hitler's staff but he remained unhurt. If the attempt had succeeded the end of the war would have arrived in the summer of 1944, but Hitler's survival coupled with a series of Allied defeats in badly planned battles across Western Europe meant that the conflict continued into another year.

In the late 1800s, the father of submarines, Mr John Holland hit upon the idea of powering a submarine with an internal combustion engine and an electric motor. For over 100 years, since the first semi-successful attempts during the American Civil War, submarine warfare had been fraught with difficulties and failure. In 1901, the Holland I was launched as the first Royal Navy submarine, and submarines have been an integral part of the navy ever since. WWII showed the first widespread use of these underwater vessels and their major advantages. Nnuclear submarines roam the waters all over the world for exploration and to keep the peace. Featuring rare archive footage, stunning 3D computer graphics and rare film of the last surviving submarines, this is a privileged glimpse into the world of submarine warfare.

She may have been the greatest monarch that ever ruled England, but from her very first breath to the day she died, Elizabeth was surrounded by enemies who threatened her crown and her life. In this episode, we see Elizabeth I crowned and battling to keep her crown and country together through 25 turbulent years. Although Elizabeth I would become one of Britain's most remarkable monarchs, her reign was never secure. From the moment she was anointed queen, her enemies at home and abroad began to move against her. To foreign rivals, she was a heretic and a bastard. At home, her government was desperate to marry her off to a man who could rule and provide the nation with an heir. Up in Scotland, her Catholic cousin Mary Queen of Scots had married and given birth to a boy - and rumour swirled that she was set to steal Elizabeth's crown. Soon, shocking scandals of adultery and murder swamped Mary, her marriage crumbled, and she fled to England desperate for her cousin's protection. But her claim to the English throne made her a threat to Elizabeth who had no choice but to imprison her. For 18 years, Mary languished in jail while Elizabeth's frenemies wanted her dead. It wasn't until Elizabeth's spymaster Sir Francis Walsingham had concrete proof that her life and her throne were at risk, that Elizabeth reluctantly put her cousin to death. But, just as she feared, Mary's execution inflamed her enemies and triggered the greatest threat of all: invasion.

Examine the stories of the objects and events generated by the Silk Road that helped to inspire revolutions. Paper-making spread from China throughout Asia and beyond. After the invention of the first printing press in 1440, millions of Europeans were reading printed content in multiple languages. Paper and the printing press democratised knowledge. Another world-changing implication of east-west trade was triggered by the Ottoman conquest of Constantinople, which blocked European access to the Silk Road. Christopher Columbus searched for another route to Asia by sailing west across the Atlantic and instead landed in the Americas. Jesuit missionaries in China forged close bonds with Chinese intellectuals and introduced Chinese civilization to Europe. Gunpowder transformed mining and helped to make New York a great city.

If any of those involved in the war doubted what all the fighting had been for then the last months of conflict would show them. As soldiers entered the territory of the Third Reich conclusive proof of the evils of Nazism was found as the death and concentration camps were uncovered. The war had begun with Germany's air force the most feared and effective in the world, but the last year of fighting saw the total collapse of the Luftwaffe. At the same time, Allied air power went from strength to strength. Battles in Manila and on the island of Iwo Jima secured the United States place as the dominant force in the Pacific. At the height of their success the Allied leaders came together at a conference in Yalta to discuss the forms that post war peace should take. The last scene of the war in Europe was played out in the German capital, Berlin. As the Russian Army laid siege to the city Hitler retired to the safety of his bunker and committed suicide. With the Fuhrer gone it was only a matter of time before the entire Axis forces succumbed to demands for their unconditional surrender. On the 8th May 1945 the war in Europe came to an end.

After the Germans' defeat in World War I, the Allies decreed that the menace of the Luftwaffe would never again be a significant threat. Germany was no longer allowed by international law to possess an airforce. Secretly, through the '20s and '30s, Germany began to rebuild her military capabilities, first in Russia and then in Italy. The Luftwaffe was reborn. In 1939, Hitler invaded Poland and the German air force was at the head of his invasion force. During the course of the war, the Luftwaffe was slowly ground down, but lack of resources and poor leadership contributed to a steady decline of this once proud fighting force.

Examine the stories of the objects and events generated by the Silk Road that helped to inspire revolutions. Paper-making spread from China throughout Asia and beyond. After the invention of the first printing press in 1440, millions of Europeans were reading printed content in multiple languages. Paper and the printing press democratised knowledge. Another world-changing implication of east-west trade was triggered by the Ottoman conquest of Constantinople, which blocked European access to the Silk Road. Christopher Columbus searched for another route to Asia by sailing west across the Atlantic and instead landed in the Americas. Jesuit missionaries in China forged close bonds with Chinese intellectuals and introduced Chinese civilization to Europe. Gunpowder transformed mining and helped to make New York a great city.

Syon House in Chiswick, West London, is one of the country's finest and best-preserved stately homes. Yet few people know that somewhere in the grounds once stood one of England's richest abbeys, founded by Henry V. The abbey finally fell foul of Henry VIII in 1539, but what might be left? Despite its central role in the conflicts between church and state throughout the 16th century, very little is known about Syon Abbey. What sort of layout did it have? How big was it? Early results from the dig are both exciting and confusing but, amidst much argument, the team slowly build a picture of what was once a truly extraordinary building.

If any of those involved in the war doubted what all the fighting had been for then the last months of conflict would show them. As soldiers entered the territory of the Third Reich conclusive proof of the evils of Nazism was found as the death and concentration camps were uncovered. The war had begun with Germany's air force the most feared and effective in the world, but the last year of fighting saw the total collapse of the Luftwaffe. At the same time, Allied air power went from strength to strength. Battles in Manila and on the island of Iwo Jima secured the United States place as the dominant force in the Pacific. At the height of their success the Allied leaders came together at a conference in Yalta to discuss the forms that post war peace should take. The last scene of the war in Europe was played out in the German capital, Berlin. As the Russian Army laid siege to the city Hitler retired to the safety of his bunker and committed suicide. With the Fuhrer gone it was only a matter of time before the entire Axis forces succumbed to demands for their unconditional surrender. On the 8th May 1945 the war in Europe came to an end.

After the Germans' defeat in World War I, the Allies decreed that the menace of the Luftwaffe would never again be a significant threat. Germany was no longer allowed by international law to possess an airforce. Secretly, through the '20s and '30s, Germany began to rebuild her military capabilities, first in Russia and then in Italy. The Luftwaffe was reborn. In 1939, Hitler invaded Poland and the German air force was at the head of his invasion force. During the course of the war, the Luftwaffe was slowly ground down, but lack of resources and poor leadership contributed to a steady decline of this once proud fighting force. Featuring rare archive footage, stunning 3D computer graphics and rare film of the last surviving planes, this is a privileged glimpse into the world of Hitler's air force.

The capture of Adolf Eichmann by Mossad in Argentina is one of the most dramatic of all Nazi hunting stories. His trial in Israel revealed to the world the workings behind the holocaust. Eichmann himself described and how and why so many German public officials were so complicit with the cries of the Nazis. The most terrible crimes in history were committed, not by a few crazed serial killers, but by legions of government officials. The men behind the holocaust were civil servants who were drawn from the brightest university graduates, whose jobs were famously secure and come with generous pensions.

Even after the triumph of VE Day, there still remained a war to be fought. The final act of this war was played out in the skies above Japan. A new US president, Harry Truman, took the devastating decision to deploy a new weapon against the forces of Japan. The atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the dreams of Imperial Japan were ended at a stroke. The post-war world began the slow and painful process of reshaping and re-assessing after the trials of war. All over the world populations began to see a future of independence, free from colonial domination. India became free of the British Empire but the French colony of Indo-China, present day Vietnam, had to fight hard for its day of liberation. The Iron Curtain fell across Eastern Europe as the Soviet Empire was re-drawn and in the Far East the foundations for a new Japan were laid. Our modern world springs from the ashes of World War II and the lessons of good versus evil. The lesson of history created by those millions who suffered and died, the lesson to both present and future generations, is that we must never forget.

The famous Desert Fox of legend, the commander of the German Afrika Korps, is a soldier loved by his men and respected by his enemies. Rommel is best remembered for his spectacular successes over the British 8th Army and, in particular, the capture of Tobruk in 1942. He subsequently drove the British back to El-Alamein. He was withdrawn after the defeat by Montgomery and, his health broken, put in charge of the Channel defences in 1943. Rommel was implicated in the plot to kill Hitler in 1944, and his subsequent suicide did nothing to diminish his reputation as a formidable soldier and leader.

It was first discovered in 1883, although experts are now concerned that maybe it isn't a villa at all; perhaps it isn't even Roman. Draining and clearing the swamp is hard work. Walls, floors and even mosaics are good clues but are certainly not everything they seem to be. Only near the end of three days' intensive detective work can the team unravel the truth.

Even after the triumph of VE Day, there still remained a war to be fought. The final act of this war was played out in the skies above Japan. A new US president, Harry Truman, took the devastating decision to deploy a new weapon against the forces of Japan. The atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the dreams of Imperial Japan were ended at a stroke. The post-war world began the slow and painful process of reshaping and re-assessing after the trials of war. All over the world populations began to see a future of independence, free from colonial domination. India became free of the British Empire but the French colony of Indo-China, present day Vietnam, had to fight hard for its day of liberation. The Iron Curtain fell across Eastern Europe as the Soviet Empire was re-drawn and in the Far East the foundations for a new Japan were laid. Our modern world springs from the ashes of World War II and the lessons of good versus evil. The lesson of history created by those millions who suffered and died, the lesson to both present and future generations, is that we must never forget.

Scorched Earth, Rommel: The Desert Fox (S2, EP5)
Rec
 
 
The famous Desert Fox of legend, the commander of the German Afrika Korps, is a soldier loved by his men and respected by his enemies. Rommel is best remembered for his spectacular successes over the British 8th Army and, in particular, the capture of Tobruk in 1942. He subsequently drove the British back to El-Alamein. He was withdrawn after the defeat by Montgomery and, his health broken, put in charge of the Channel defences in 1943. Rommel was implicated in the plot to kill Hitler in 1944, and his subsequent suicide did nothing to diminish his reputation as a formidable soldier and leader.

Today's submarines are vast, billion-pound, high-tech monsters with a nuclear payload that can level cities. But the story of Britain's first submarines began over a century ago, with inventors risking life and limb in a range of bizarre contraptions. Sir Tony Robinson joins forces with expert diver and historian Innes McCartney to uncover the experimental origins of Britain's Submarine Service, through a series of wreck dives, underwater blast tests and hands-on demonstrations. At the start of the 20th century, Britain lagged far behind Germany in developing these new weapons, but by 1914 they had caught up, in an underwater arms race that would play a vital role in World War I. This Time Team Special reveals how information revealed by Innes's dives and the team's experiments is helping to map the successes and failures of the submarine pioneers.

Egypt's Unexplained Files, Ancient Icons In The Modern Age (S1, EP8)
Rec
 
 
This episode explores the truth and lies behind ancient Egypt's most well-known and well- loved icons. Tutankhamun is arguably the most famous dead body on Earth. We follow the investigation of his remains and discuss the role his allegedly incestuous heritage may have played in his downfall. Historical record tells us that there are fabled cities in Ancient Egypt that we've not yet laid eyes upon. We showcase the new technologies transforming archaeology, allowing researchers to peer beneath the sands and bring to life Egypt's long-lost city of Tanis. Egyptologists then explore a tantalising possibility: that the mythical Scorpion King - a fabled ruler of ancient Egypt portrayed in countless stories, even sensationalized by Hollywood - is in fact real. And discuss why modern researchers wonder if what we know about Egyptian views on sex and fertility has somehow been erased. We explore the 'emergency archaeology' that leads a dive team to discover statues from Alexandria's great lighthouse. And thousands of years after it was carved from a single block of stone, we discover scientists not only know who built the Great Sphinx, but why. More Info >

Outnumbered, outgunned and beleaguered on all sides, the German tank forces of WWII fought valiantly to the very last. Always too few in numbers, even the superior technology of the Tiger and Panther tanks proved insufficient to defeat the hordes of Shermans and T-34s, which swamped the Panzer Corps by 1945. Featuring rare archive footage, stunning 3D computer graphics and rare film of the last surviving Tigers, this is a privileged glimpse into the world of Hitler's tank armies.
