Mystery surrounds the elite Australian soldiers of the SAS. Most of their secrets are never revealed. Their predecessors were the men of Z Special unit. Their countless acts of bravery are rarely told. Most were killed and lie in unmarked graves with headstones inscribed KNOWN UNTO GOD. Our documentary follows the brave deeds of a Z Special operative whose remains seemed lost forever. Our hero was recently discovered in a grave marked KNOWN UNTO GOD. His remarkable story is a tribute to the brave and selfless volunteers of Z Special unit. Just off the road heading from Port Moresby to the southern end of the Kokoda track is the Bomana War Cemetery. It is the largest in the Pacific. In this peaceful place lie 3779 Australians and their allies. Sadly many of the headstones state "Known unto God". On very rare occasions the identity of one of these unknown men is discovered and the headstone replaced with one showing the man's identity. After determined research the identity of 3 of these men has just been ascertained. Two are Australians and one a loyal Indonesian ally by the name of Roestan. Until now the circumstances of their deaths had been shrouded in secrecy but we can now reveal the manner in which these incredibly brave men lost their lives.

Meanwhile Jane's army, fronted by Northumberland, had been forced to retreat to Cambridge and a large number of his soldiers had abandoned his cause. Northumberland's absence from London meant he could no longer keep the privy councillors on his side. In his absence, their nerves cracked and they fled the Tower of London.

With the war in quagmire, the Australian Army's main fighting force, the infantry, is sent to join a coalition surge to break through, defeat the insurgency and train an Afghan force that could secure the country and make our exit possible. The surge does not quell fighting: violence spikes and the Australian war intensifies, requiring extraordinary responses from the soldiers on the ground. Not all the action is out on the battlefield. Corporal Kristyna Kalogjera describes losing her mate Lance Corporal Andrew Jones, a cook, within an Australian base camp. He is the first of seven Australians shot by the Afghan soldiers they are there to train. In December 2013, Australian combat troops leave Afghanistan. The series explores the successes and failures of the war and how the War on Terror has changed our lives. It asks the men and women who fought Australia's longest war if they would ever return to fight in Afghanistan. More Info >

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. At the Marin History Museum in San Rafael, California, a tattered and time-worn briefcase in the collection once belonged to an eccentric doctor who performed gruesome and controversial surgeries, all in the hopes to make the old young again. At the Wyatt Archaeological Museum in Cornersville, Tennessee, visitors can see a giant slab of rock unearthed from the hills of Turkey which some believe is fossilised proof of a biblical vessel. Stored deep within the archives of the FBI, a reel-to-reel tape recorder from the early 1990s was once wielded by an informant who helped expose a massive corporate conspiracy, damning himself in the process.

It is incredible that one of the six original frigates authorised for construction by the Navy Act of 1794 - two years before there was a United States - is still afloat, still sailing under her own power, still commissioned, and still inspiring.

By the end of the Vietnam War, 135 photojournalists had died while picturing a story that was sadder than words could describe. They came from both sides and a dozen countries; they were professionals, amateurs, soldiers, and adventurers with little in common but guts and cameras. Until the astonishing book "Requiem", there was no memorial to these unsung heroes of the lens. We view their work, while moving commentary from their comrades, including David Halberstam, tell how they lived and died.

The unresolved and hastily covered-up death in 1931 of Geli Raubal, Hitler's half-niece and romantic obsession, has been relegated to the very murky footnotes of Nazi history. But this dark long-standing mystery still chills the heart - exactly what were the circumstances that led to the death of the beautiful young Raubal who was found in Hitler's Munich apartment with a bullet wound through her chest and Hitler's gun by her side? Who pulled the trigger? It's to Munich then to unpick a seedy and macabre story, which almost unbelievably did for Hitler before he rose to power in 1933. Was it just a 'lamentable accident'? Did Geli actually kill herself because she was unable to bear Hitler's sexual demands? Or because he was flirting outrageously with Eva Braun? Was she pregnant with Hitler's child or was she carrying the child of an amorous - but Jewish - suitor? Was she murdered on the orders of the emerging Nazi party? Or did Hitler himself kill her?

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.

Cleopatra's story is a great romantic tale we think we all know. A beautiful Egyptian queen who bewitches the two most powerful Romans of her day, Julius Caesar and Marc Antony. It has tragedy, glamour and passion, all played out on a world stage. But the myth conceals a much more intriguing tale that is as much about power, politics and spin as it is about romance. Cleopatra harboured ambitions to rule a great empire. In partnership with her lover Antony, she fought a cataclysmic battle against Octavian - later Augustus - for the future of the Roman world. Ultimately, Cleopatra and Antony lost, and thus her story has always been told through the prism of vicious Roman propaganda. But behind Rome's spin lies a more complex person, rather than being the dangerous femme fatale of legend, she was a highly educated and cultured woman of great charm and fairly plain looking. Rather than being an exotic oriental, she was in fact Greek, a descendent of one of Alexander the Great's generals. Through expert interviews, dramatic reconstruction and location shooting, this film tells her remarkable story.

The Noor Inayat Khan story brings to life the story of a woman's extraordinary courage, tested in the crucible of Nazi-occupied Paris. With an American mother and Indian Muslim father, Noor Inayat Khan was an extremely unusual British agent, and her life spent growing up in a Sufi centre of learning in Paris seemed an unlikely preparation for the dangerous work to come. Yet it was in this place of universal peace and contemplation that her remarkable courage was forged. In early 1943, Khan was recruited as a covert operative into Winston Churchill's Special Operations Executive (SOE). Churchill's orders: to "set Europe ablaze". After the collapse and arrest of her entire network, Khan became the only surviving radio operator linking the British to the French Resistance in Paris, coordinating the airdrop of weapons, explosives, and agents and supporting the rescue of downed Allied fliers. Betrayed by a French collaborator after four months, Khan resisted brutal interrogation by the Gestapo, escaping twice - only to be recaptured and sent to Germany where, at last, she was executed at Dachau.

Nazi Murder Mysteries, Hitler's Niece (S1, EP3)
Rec
 
 
The unresolved and hastily covered-up death in 1931 of Geli Raubal, Hitler's half-niece and romantic obsession, has been relegated to the very murky footnotes of Nazi history. But this dark long-standing mystery still chills the heart - exactly what were the circumstances that led to the death of the beautiful young Raubal who was found in Hitler's Munich apartment with a bullet wound through her chest and Hitler's gun by her side? Who pulled the trigger? It's to Munich then to unpick a seedy and macabre story, which almost unbelievably did for Hitler before he rose to power in 1933. Was it just a 'lamentable accident'? Did Geli actually kill herself because she was unable to bear Hitler's sexual demands? Or because he was flirting outrageously with Eva Braun? Was she pregnant with Hitler's child or was she carrying the child of an amorous - but Jewish - suitor? Was she murdered on the orders of the emerging Nazi party? Or did Hitler himself kill her?

On 7 December 1941, while Japanese aviation has just sunk a large part of the US Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor, Roosevelt puts the United States in a state of war and decides to focus the main efforts not against Japan but against Germany. Elected to make Peace, Roosevelt, almost alone, did everything to provoke the Japanese and launch America into war alongside the democracies. Without him, Germany would probably have won.

Inspired by the Bafta-winning series Our War, which tracked the first-hand experiences of British troops on the front line in Afghanistan, this series immerses viewers in the real stories of British troops serving on the front line during World War I. August 1914, two weeks after the First World War was declared. 80,000 British troops have arrived in southern Belgium, but they have yet to engage the enemy. Amongst these professional soldiers are the 4th Battalion, Royal Fusiliers, some of the best-trained gunners in the British Army. Lieutenant Maurice Dease and his friend, Australian Lieutenant Fred Steele, command two companies of riflemen and machine gunners who find themselves camping overnight at Nimy Bridge, the northernmost point of the Mons-Conde Canal. The canal, surrounding the town of Mons, supports 18 bridges stretched along 20 miles of water - but everyone, including Private Sid Godley and his mate Private William Holbrook, expects to be crossing those bridges in the morning. Overnight, however, intelligence reports the Germans may be closer than the British think, and the Royal Engineers, including Lance Corporal Charles Jarvis and his sapper, Private Neary, are ordered to start preparing the bridges for demolition. What happens next, on Sunday 23 August, tests the soldiers' skill, courage and ingenuity to the absolute limit, leading to the first Victoria Crosses of the First World War. Not everyone will make it through the First Day. More Info >

No battle in the 10 years of the Vietnam War received more agonised attention from homefront America and its leaders than did the siege of Khe Sanh. The 77-day siege was a political chess game - with the lives of unsung heroes as pawns for sacrifice. The battle was so fierce that skeletons of the enemy dead hung in the triple lines of barbed wire. We'll meet some of the veterans who fought bravely against a numerically superior enemy over a combat base with virtually no strategic value.

He embarks on a fascinating trip across Europe, Africa and Asia, visits the world's most famous collections and discovers hidden artistic gems, all to prove that the Dark Ages were actually an 'Age of Light'.

The Tower of London, for almost 1,000 years at the heart of state life in the UK, is one of the most famous buildings in the world. Constructed soon after the Norman conquest of Britain in 1066, it has served as a Royal Palace, fortress, prison, place of execution for queens, an edifice to scare the population, royal zoo, mint and keeper of the Crown Jewels. Yet few know its full story. In this series, aided by historian Stephen Porter of King's College, University of Lon-don, and author of The Biography of the Tower of London, and including some beautiful re-enactments, we hear some startling stories and terrifying tales.

Dr David Starkey tells the story of Britain's greatest general, John Churchill, first Duke of Marlborough through the lens of the four-volume biography written by his descendant, Winston Churchill, in the 1930s. Moving back and forth between the 18th- and 20th-centuries, David Starkey explores Winston Churchill the historian and argues that writing about the ancestor who led the global alliance against Louis XIV of France was essential preparation for the man who would soon lead the alliance against Hitler's Germany. Historian David Starkey profiles two of Britain's greatest wartime leaders. He begins by revealing how Winston Churchill came to write a biography of his ancestor John, who led the nation against Louis XIV of France. Starkey also explores how preparations for the Second World War were affected by the prime minister's knowledge of his 17th-century forebear's achievements.

However, by his death 38 years later, he had earned the reputation of a tyrannical and ruthless monarch. How did the one turn into the other? Acclaimed historian, and one of the world's leading authorities on the Tudors, Dr David Starkey presents the most detailed analysis to date of the life of this infamous British monarch.

We meet some of the people whose lives we will follow through the terrible four years of war are about to change Australian society. As the first sounds of menace are heard, with the shots in far-off Sarajevo that assassinate the heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, the Coles Brothers are opening their first store in Collingwood. In rural Victoria the sons and daughters of the McGinness family support their widowed mother in a life of pastoral comfort on their dairy farm. In London Australia's only true superstar, the opera singer Nellie Melba, performs before the crowned heads of Europe. In less than six weeks the tensions and rivalries of the European powers have dragged that continent to war. And because those powers have global empires, the world is at war. Australia is at war.

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. At the Peterson Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, California visitors can see a bright yellow car with a unique design, built with promises that seemed too good to be true. At the Bakken Museum in Minneapolis, Minnesota, a glass and wooden musical instrument tells the tale of miraculous medical cures that came under the scrutiny of one of America's most famous statesmen. And at the International Spy Museum in Washington, DC, a small piece of paper tells an epic story of espionage, secrecy, and a very unlikely spy during a trying conflict.

One of the most heroic ships of WWII, CV-8 has the distinction of serving as the flight deck for the incredible Doolittle Tokyo raid, before being sunk by an enemy who tortured and executed the fliers of that raid. Her predecessor ship, CV-12, goes on to see 16 months in continuous battle action, penetrating to within 40 miles of the Japanese home islands and setting incredible records. It was under air attack 59 separate times. Over 1400 enemy planes were destroyed by her planes, along with 1,200,000 tons of enemy shipping. Ten of her pilots reached 'Ace In One Day' status. Over 70 enemy planes were shot down in one day. Over 255 were shot down in one month. Thirty of her 42 Hellcat pilots became aces. Her torpedo planes destroyed the super-battleship Yamato as it raced to menace the Okinawa beachhead. And, the best revenge of all, her planes made the first strikes against Tokyo since the Doolittle raid launched by her illustrious ancestor. This is an action-packed and emotional testimony.

The Waffen SS began as Hitler's elite bodyguard and grew into one of the most formidable fighting forces of Nazi Germany. Although part of the infamous SS - and indelibly linked with the excesses of the feared Gestapo, the concentration camps, and the extermination squads, the men of the SS saw themselves as combat soldiers, respected for their courage, feared for their ruthlessness and fanaticism. For these were political soldiers; mature men, recruited for their physical perfection and pure Aryan ancestry. They were drilled in Nazi ideology, indoctrinated to believe in themselves as the master race and their enemies as subhuman. They became the cornerstone of the German defences, who carried on fighting, even when all hope was gone. But they are remembered for their brutality. They killed captured British, Canadian and American soldiers in cold blood, and massacred unarmed French, Belgian and Russian civilians. They were Gladiators on the battlefield, who fought on against impossible odds, but the Waffen SS will forever be tarnished by the atrocities they committed as the willing servants of an evil regime.

Britain in the 1830s was a country on the brink of revolution. The people could not have borne another debauched son of George III as king. Fortunately, they were able to invest their hopes in the innocent Princess Victoria. But there were those determined to grab power for themselves, not least her mother. Intrigue, deception, death threats - this is the true story of the young queen.

As ancient astronaut theorists continue to find more and more compelling clues that extraterrestrials have been visiting planet Earth since ancient times, astronomers are also finding an increasing number of planets in our galaxy that are capable of sustaining life. Is it possible that we are on the brink of a reconnection with our alien ancestors? On this season, we uncover more astonishing new evidence of extraterrestrial intervention on Earth than ever before. In 1984, a roll of 35mm film surfaced from an anonymous source that contained pictures of what is now known as the Eisenhower Briefing Document. This document is purported to be a memo sent from the director of the CIA in 1952 to president-elect Dwight Eisenhower, informing him of the existence of a top-secret group within the US government called The Majestic Twelve. Composed of top scientists, government officials, and military elite, this group's mission was to investigate reports of unidentified flying objects - and to examine crashed extraterrestrial craft. And more recently, in 2002, a major computer hack into Pentagon and NASA computers appears to reveal hard evidence that not only are the Majestic Twelve documents real, but that the government's interaction with extraterrestrials has led to the creation of a secret space program, that has already established bases on the moon, Mars, and other celestial bodies.

Project Impossible is an original series that follows a new generation of epic engineering projects that were considered unthinkable just a few years ago. Each episode of Project Impossible features multiple stories that illustrate man-made projects that are crucial to our future. These projects include a massive North Sea wind station with 600-foot rotors, a giant sea wall that will protect the ancient city of Venice from rising waters, the world's largest moveable structure in Chernobyl, and the construction of a fleet of nuclear powered ice-breaking ships.

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. At the Municipal Archives in New York City is a black and white negative containing an image of a deadly weapon used in a sinister plot of revenge. Just uptown in New York's Times Square sits the world famous Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum, where the likeness of one revolutionary woman is on display, telling an inspiring and artful tale that spans one of history's most tumultuous eras. And on the grounds of the San Diego Air and Space Museum in California is a large missile that led to the creation of a product that's found in nearly every household in America.

A battle to be queen. We think of Queen Victoria as a respectable matron, the epitome of duty, a beloved monarch. But Victoria's path to the throne was by no means easy. Britain in the 1830s was a country on the brink of revolution. The people could not have borne another debauched son of George III as king. Fortunately, they were able to invest their hopes in the innocent Princess Victoria. But there were those determined to grab power for themselves, not least her mother. Intrigue, deception, death threats - this is the true story of the young queen.

Private Chas Rowland, determined to bring the war to an end and return home, joins the Tank Corps under the command of Lieutenant Mould, entering the extraordinary world of the Niveleur, a Mark V tank. Primed to take part in a major offensive against the Germans just outside the French town of Amiens, the crew of the Niveleur include Fred Firth, a father-of-two desperate to see his children again, Private Dodds, a tough warrior scarred by the loss of his brothers and Mike Weston, a civilian mechanic conscripted into the tanks. The crew will only survive four gruelling days behind enemy lines if they can learn to work together. Can they bring the war to an end and make it home? More Info >

When a US marine or sailor is wounded in combat, his odds of getting to a doctor are close to nothing. But his chances of staying alive are superb due to the Navy hospital corpsmen. They aren't doctors, but their job is to be at the centre of battle, lightly armed and carrying no more medical supplies than can be dragged in a shoulder bag. In dynamic interviews with veterans and brand-new footage, we see how, while performing their duty over two centuries, many died, willingly, in shocking numbers.

In July, 1940, when Axis forces occupied Western Europe, the Special Operations Executive was set up by British Prime Minister Winston Churchill to set Europe ablaze. SOE deployed secret agents to support resistance movements in Occupied Europe and worked with them to prepare for Liberation. Although they worked far from the battlefields, the men and women of the SOE were among the bravest Gladiators of World War II. From an anonymous building in London's Baker Street, agents were provided with cover stories, false identity cards, ration books and clandestine weapons like exploding cigarettes and itching powder for German underwear. Young men and women were sent alone into enemy-occupied territory, knowing that they could be shot as spies if captured. This program examines SOE's most successful raid, on the Norsk-Hydro plant in Telemark, Norway, and its most disastrous episode, Englandspiel in Holland. Former agents tell remarkable stories of bravery and sacrifice in the face of capture, torture and death as they operated under the very noses of the enemy.

The unresolved and hastily covered-up death in 1931 of Geli Raubal, Hitler's half-niece and romantic obsession, has been relegated to the very murky footnotes of Nazi history. But this dark long-standing mystery still chills the heart - exactly what were the circumstances that led to the death of the beautiful young Raubal who was found in Hitler's Munich apartment with a bullet wound through her chest and Hitler's gun by her side? Who pulled the trigger? It's to Munich then to unpick a seedy and macabre story, which almost unbelievably did for Hitler before he rose to power in 1933. Was it just a 'lamentable accident'? Did Geli actually kill herself because she was unable to bear Hitler's sexual demands? Or because he was flirting outrageously with Eva Braun? Was she pregnant with Hitler's child or was she carrying the child of an amorous - but Jewish - suitor? Was she murdered on the orders of the emerging Nazi party? Or did Hitler himself kill her?

Ancient Astronaut Theory has existed in popular culture for nearly 50 years. It asks the question, did extraterrestrials visit Earth in the remote past? All around the world there are examples that suggest humans are not alone in the universe. But has this evidence been left behind for a purpose? Is it in fact a series of clues, or Alien Code, that we are meant to decipher? Ancient Astronaut theorist Giorgio A. Tsoukalos investigates unexplained mysteries from every corner of the world. The evidence shows that many ancient sites, and even modern ones like Roswell, all seem to be associated with legends and reports of someone or something coming down from the sky. Tsoukalos' research demonstrates that many of these sites share a common symbol or shape-concentric circles. What is the significance of these designs, and is it possible they contain a coded, mathematical message left by alien visitors in the remote past?

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.

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 Rhine ESP/Parapsychology Museum in Durham, North Carolina holds in its collection a small memorandum book with notes that document a remarkable equine phenomenon that captivated the country. Connecticut's Naugatuck Historical Society contains a slab of a strange material that is linked to one of history's most monumental manufacturing achievements. And the Wallace District Mining Museum in Wallace Idaho displays a unique tool that was invented in the aftermath of an incendiary crisis to help protect people on the front lines in one of man's most perilous professions.

A decade of propaganda, of impassioned speeches, newspaper articles, posters and campaigning all led to one moment: Hitler is made Chancellor of Germany in January 1933. With this act, the dismantling of German democracy began. This episode explores Hitler's approach to propaganda in power, where persuasion was achieved through propaganda and through terror, all in service of one goal: to create a state under one shared ideology; One People, One Reich, One Fuhrer. Where films, posters, rallies and speeches perpetuated the idea of new German power; and where those deemed undesirable faced the terrible fate of the concentration camp. More Info >

The unresolved and hastily covered-up death in 1931 of Geli Raubal, Hitler's half-niece and romantic obsession, has been relegated to the very murky footnotes of Nazi history. But this dark long-standing mystery still chills the heart - exactly what were the circumstances that led to the death of the beautiful young Raubal who was found in Hitler's Munich apartment with a bullet wound through her chest and Hitler's gun by her side? Who pulled the trigger? It's to Munich then to unpick a seedy and macabre story, which almost unbelievably did for Hitler before he rose to power in 1933. Was it just a 'lamentable accident'? Did Geli actually kill herself because she was unable to bear Hitler's sexual demands? Or because he was flirting outrageously with Eva Braun? Was she pregnant with Hitler's child or was she carrying the child of an amorous - but Jewish - suitor? Was she murdered on the orders of the emerging Nazi party? Or did Hitler himself kill her?

Meanwhile Jane's army, fronted by Northumberland, had been forced to retreat to Cambridge and a large number of his soldiers had abandoned his cause.

Four kings from the House of Stuart sat on the English throne from 1603 to 1688. It was a time of great religious struggle and political instability. The Gunpowder Plot nearly wiped out King James I. The Thirty Years War broke out on the continent. London was ravaged by the plague and the Great Fire of London. A civil war erupted which led to the public beheading of King Charles I and the birth of a commonwealth headed by Oliver Cromwell. Throughout this series we look at the reign of the Stuarts through the powerful Wynn family at Gwydir Castle in North Wales; one of the best preserved time capsules from that era. The story of the Wynn family reflects the turbulent history of this Stuart era. They had close connections with this new royal house and their status would rise and fall with the successes and failures of Stuart rule.

Take a walk through the shadowy boundaries that lay between fact and fiction. From the media mogul undercover MI6 and Mossad spy, alleged UFO sighting cover-ups by the UK government, to the murky world of Hollywood - each chapter connects the conspiracy theory dots. Each episode will select a historical 'fact' and examine it through a conspiracy theorist's lens. These theories seek to expose as myth much of what we accept as truth. Did Hitler really die in 1945? Did a Russian nuclear submarine attempt to launch a nuclear missile at Hawaii in 1968? And was Diana ruthlessly murdered by members of her own family? These theories, as we'll find out, are, for some, far closer to the truth than you would have ever imagined. More Info >

Tony Robinson and the team travel to the picturesque remains of Hopton Castle in Shropshire to investigate a bloody series of battles at the height of the English Civil War when a Royalist force lay siege to a small garrison of Parliamentarians inside the castle. Using contemporary accounts and the evidence from their own trenches the archaeologists attempt to separate out fact from propaganda. The dig immediately produces evidence of battle and over the three days the archaeology begins to build up a compelling story of how the defenders fought off two attacks, killing hundreds of Royalists, before finally succumbing to the far greater numbers of their enemy. The team have one other, gruesome, target to locate - the site where the surrendered Parliamentarians were massacred by the victorious attackers. Accounts suggest they had their hands cut off and were drowned in a ditch or water filled cellar so the geophysics team set off in search of likely candidates. By the end of day three the archaeologists have built up a picture of the castle in the violent days of 1644 and how it was finally overcome by a superior force. And then there is the site of the massacre.

It is the land that changed them from colonists to explorers, a westward-shifting line, first the Appalachian Mountains, then the Louisiana Purchase and finally stretching to the Pacific, which slowly altered the way they spoke, dressed, and lived. Once crossed, it transformed them from Europeans to revolutionaries and, finally, to Americans. With Leonardo DiCaprio on board as co-executive producer and co-narrator, this series is a docu-drama that follows the people who set forth across the untamed land. DiCaprio introduces the series as well, which will span the formative period of American history - the first 75 years from the post-revolutionary war colonies through the Civil War. It will feature the stories of iconic figures including: Daniel Boone, Lewis and Clark, Tecumseh, Andrew Jackson, Davy Crocket, Jim Bowie and Kit Carson. As the stories overlap, they will also interweave other iconic figures such as Washington, Hamilton and Lincoln. In this episode, Davy Crockett makes a stand at The Alamo. President Polk risks war with Britain and Mexico, sending John Fremont and Kit Carson on a secret mission that ignites a war for California and the Pacific. More Info >

How did Gandhi die, and who killed him? These questions have never been adequately answered when looking at the life and biography of Mahatma Gandhi. This film is the definitive inquiry into a deeply entrenched conspiracy that has remained only a footnote in history. It reveals an epic battle of clashing religious and political ideologies through interviews with historians, journalists, eyewitnesses and unprecedented access to the families of Mahatma Gandhi, his assassin Nathuram Godse, and the accused conspiracy mastermind VD Savarkar. Narrated by Canadian star Gordon Pinsent, the investigative documentary resurfaces rare archives, including the discovery of the All India Radio broadcast from January 20th, 1948, where a gang of assassins is heard interrupting Gandhi's prayer meeting in a botched assassination attempt a mere 10 days before the fateful final act.

Professor Robert Bartlett embarks on an ambitious journey deep into the hearts and minds of a band of warriors who transformed medieval Europe. Bursting with colourful characters and illuminating detail, Professor Bartlett's story follows the fortunes of the Normans all the way from Scandinavia to Normandy and England in 1066. He then follows them south to Jerusalem via southern Italy, Sicily and modern day Turkey. He draws on Anglo-Saxon chronicles, medieval manuscripts and some of the most powerful examples of Norman architecture in an epic sweep of the period of Norman supremacy. And he reveals how the Norman legacy lives on in our culture and politics to this day. In a fascinating exploration of Domesday Book, medieval historian Dr Stephen Baxter reveals the human and political drama that lies within the parchment of England's earliest surviving public record. He also finds out the real reason it was commissioned by William the Conqueror. Most historians believe Domesday is some kind of tax book for raising revenue. But Baxter reveals why Domesday Book couldn't have been used to collect taxes. He argues that its real purpose was to give revolutionary new powers to England's first Norman King.

Engineer Rob Bell visits the most iconic and interesting bridges in the UK. Showcasing how each bridge was built, and the obstacles the workers building them faced. For years, London's East End was denied a new bridge because of the need to guarantee passage of ships up and down the Thames. For years, the greatest engineers of the age hunted for a design that would keep both road and water traffic moving. As Rob Bell explains, the solution came from architect Horace Jones, whose revolutionary design, with its thousand-tonne opening sections, was powered by nothing more than water. Rob also explains the bridge was lucky to survive the Second World War, having been a target for German V-1 flying bombs.

On 7 December 1941, while Japanese aviation has just sunk a large part of the US Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor, Roosevelt puts the United States in a state of war and decides to focus the main efforts not against Japan but against Germany. Elected to make Peace, Roosevelt, almost alone, did everything to provoke the Japanese and launch America into war alongside the democracies. Without him, Germany would probably have won.

Cleopatra,
Rec
 
 
Cleopatra's story is a great romantic tale we think we all know. A beautiful Egyptian queen who bewitches the two most powerful Romans of her day, Julius Caesar and Marc Antony. It has tragedy, glamour and passion, all played out on a world stage. But the myth conceals a much more intriguing tale that is as much about power, politics and spin as it is about romance. Cleopatra harboured ambitions to rule a great empire. In partnership with her lover Antony, she fought a cataclysmic battle against Octavian - later Augustus - for the future of the Roman world. Ultimately, Cleopatra and Antony lost, and thus her story has always been told through the prism of vicious Roman propaganda. But behind Rome's spin lies a more complex person, rather than being the dangerous femme fatale of legend, she was a highly educated and cultured woman of great charm and fairly plain looking. Rather than being an exotic oriental, she was in fact Greek, a descendent of one of Alexander the Great's generals. Through expert interviews, dramatic reconstruction and location shooting, this film tells her remarkable story.

Ancient Egypt's Greatest Lost City,
Rec
 
 
In the fading days of the pharaohs, the city of Heracleion was the gateway to Egypt - an opulent and prosperous port city adorned with statues, sphinxes and home to the temple of Amun. But despite its importance, Heracleion was mysteriously wiped from the face of the Earth, after being consumed by the sea. This lost city lay forgotten beneath the waters of the Mediterranean until 2000 when archaeologists discovered the city's remains 6km off the Egyptian coast and only 10m under water. Pristinely preserved, it is an archaeological jewel; an ancient Egyptian city frozen in time. This fascinating investigation follows a team of maritime archaeologists as they uncover glorious temples, statues, houses, and boats lying perfectly preserved beneath the sea, providing a unique snapshot of Egyptian life over 2000 years ago. But what caused this sacred city to plunge into the sea?

Professor Robert Bartlett embarks on an ambitious journey deep into the hearts and minds of a band of warriors who transformed medieval Europe. Bursting with colourful characters and illuminating detail, Professor Bartlett's story follows the fortunes of the Normans all the way from Scandinavia to Normandy and England in 1066. He then follows them south to Jerusalem via southern Italy, Sicily and modern day Turkey. He draws on Anglo-Saxon chronicles, medieval manuscripts and some of the most powerful examples of Norman architecture in an epic sweep of the period of Norman supremacy. And he reveals how the Norman legacy lives on in our culture and politics to this day. In a fascinating exploration of Domesday Book, medieval historian Dr Stephen Baxter reveals the human and political drama that lies within the parchment of England's earliest surviving public record. He also finds out the real reason it was commissioned by William the Conqueror. Most historians believe Domesday is some kind of tax book for raising revenue. But Baxter reveals why Domesday Book couldn't have been used to collect taxes. He argues that its real purpose was to give revolutionary new powers to England's first Norman King.

Engineer Rob Bell visits the most iconic and interesting bridges in the UK. Showcasing how each bridge was built, and the obstacles the workers building them faced. For years, London's East End was denied a new bridge because of the need to guarantee passage of ships up and down the Thames. For years, the greatest engineers of the age hunted for a design that would keep both road and water traffic moving. As Rob Bell explains, the solution came from architect Horace Jones, whose revolutionary design, with its thousand-tonne opening sections, was powered by nothing more than water. Rob also explains the bridge was lucky to survive the Second World War, having been a target for German V-1 flying bombs.

At the western end of Loch Migdale, in the Scottish Highlands, sits a mysterious island. It could be a crannog; a man-made prehistoric island probably inhabited at some point in prehistory. On the shore nearby, there is an enigmatic circle cut into the ground. It might be a henge, or a cairn, no-one is sure, but it also seems to have been left by the prehistoric people who lived in this part of Scotland. The team work flat out in these beautiful surroundings, diving, hill walking and digging as they piece together the extraordinary story of Highland life 2,000 to 3,000 years ago.

In 1965, the United States officially became involved in the conflict in South East Asia, where decades of turmoil had been building since the beginning of World War II. The fall of French Indochina and the spread of Communism catapulted the country into one of its longest and deadliest wars. Featuring personal stories from veterans and detailing the battles, strategy, and politics of a war that consumed multiple US presidents, this program is a chronicle of the tragedy that tested the strength of America and forever changed the social and political landscape of the world. French colonies in Indochina fell to the Imperial Japanese after Nazi Germany occupied France during World War II. After the Japanese were defeated, the power vacuum left in the Indochina region set the stage for a major conflict. More Info >

Hitler's Last Secrets, Private Hitler's War 1914-18 (S1, EP1)
Rec
 
 
This major study, hosted by Emmy Award-winning writer and historian Bob Carruthers, poses the question why, at the height of the battle for France in 1940, Hitler was driven to step aside from the battle for France to visit the graves of his fallen comrades and lead the General Staff on a tour of his old trenches from The Great War? The result is a powerful film study, which proves comprehensively that contrary to popular myth, Hitler was not a cowardly malingerer and oddball loner. A rare 1932 pamphlet, the chance discovery of a previously unpublished account of Hitler in the trenches in a long lost letter, proves beyond doubt his service record was genuine and the uncomfortable truth is that Hitler was not a coward. He in fact served with distinction, was twice seriously wounded, won the Iron Cross and the Military Medal with Swords, and was admired and respected by his colleagues, with whom he forged genuine and lasting friendships.

Captured on camera, on the 5th of May 1980, the British Army's elite Special Air Service stormed the Iranian Embassy in London, where hostages were being held by Iraqi terrorists. Within ten minutes, the terrorists were killed, and the remaining hostages, rescued. Who were these black-clad men in balaclavas, who resolved the conflict with such ruthless efficiency? This programme examines the SAS, from its conception as a small, deep-penetration raiding force led by Commando Officer David Stirling in the deserts of Libya and Egypt in World War II, to its work on the modern day battlefields in the Falklands and Gulf wars. Today the SAS is among the best special services in the world. Its men are the toughest of the tough, and those who have served in it over the 60 years since its inception have lived and fought unswervingly under the motto on their cap badges, 'Who Dares Wins'.

In the fourteenth century, a minor local clan leader begins a career of conquest that will forge one of the largest empires the world has ever seen. During his rise and rule, Timur (known in the West as Tamerlane the Great) builds awe-inspiring mosques and palaces, betrays and executes allies and is responsible for the deaths of over 17 million people - roughly 5% of the world's population. We join Presenter David Adams as he follows in the footsteps of the man proclaimed as the Sword of Islam from ancient villages in the mountains of Uzbekistan to the shores of the Black Sea and the walls of Delhi. David explores the wondrous buildings Timur creates - and reveals the hopes, mistakes and tragedies of a father seeking to establish a legitimate, royal dynasty. And a family who manage to lose it all as a result of civil war, betrayal, debauchery and murder.

Britain's history is a history of invasion. The sea that surrounds its shores is both a barrier and a superhighway - one that's led to the creation of an overseas empire, and also the arrival of many different peoples.

End Of Empire, Timur: The Sword Of Islam (S1, EP1)
Rec
 
 
In the fourteenth century, a minor local clan leader begins a career of conquest that will forge one of the largest empires the world has ever seen. During his rise and rule, Timur (known in the West as Tamerlane the Great) builds awe-inspiring mosques and palaces, betrays and executes allies and is responsible for the deaths of over 17 million people - roughly 5% of the world's population. We join Presenter David Adams as he follows in the footsteps of the man proclaimed as the Sword of Islam from ancient villages in the mountains of Uzbekistan to the shores of the Black Sea and the walls of Delhi. David explores the wondrous buildings Timur creates - and reveals the hopes, mistakes and tragedies of a father seeking to establish a legitimate, royal dynasty. And a family who manage to lose it all as a result of civil war, betrayal, debauchery and murder.
