Combat Ships, The First Metal Warships (S1, EP2)
 
 
For centuries, an extraordinary war has raged across the world's oceans - above and below the waves. Shipbuilders have designed bigger and faster vessels to outwit and crush their opponents - many carrying terrifying weapons. This program shows how technology transformed naval warfare and that tells the stories of the greatest battles, escapes and disasters. From the deadly 18th-century ships of the line, the primitive submarines of the American Civil War, the landing craft of the D-Day beaches, the brave hospital ships of both World Wars to the might of nuclear warships - these vessels and their crews have shaped world history and inspired men and women to acts of incredible bravery. The crucial role ships have played in international conflict over the past 500 years. This program looks at early metal warships, and examines how HMS Rattler's screw propeller in 1845 would lead to the revolutionary HMS Dreadnought in the 20th-century.

Truk Lagoon: Japan's Pearl Harbour,
 
 
The planet's greatest concentration of WW2 shipwrecks lie in a remote lagoon in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, and outside the diving community, nobody seems to have heard of it. Throughout the Second World War, the lagoon was the principal base for the Japanese fleet - a mid-ocean fortress they believed to be impenetrable. Then came Operation Hailstone, a massive airstrike that changed the course of the Pacific War. Over two days in 1944, American aircraft sunk around 40 Japanese ships and destroyed hundreds of warplanes. This was the American payback for the attack on Pearl Harbour. More Info >

The American St. Nick,
 
 
The occupying Germans had been forced out of Wiltz, Luxembourg by advancing American troops. It had been almost five years since the townspeople of Wiltz had been able to celebrate their annual tradition of Saint Nicolas Day. The Nazi's had outlawed the annual Christmas-related celebration when they occupied Luxembourg in 1940. Even though American Gis had liberated them in late 1944, the citizens and especially the children of Wiltz, a town in the hills bordering the dark and foreboding Ardennes forest, had no resources left in which to mark their very special holiday. That is when a group of soldiers of the battle-weary 28th Infantry Division got together and brought back hope and joy back to a small town that had not had anything to smile about in almost five years. One GI, Corporal Richard Brookins, played the role of Saint Nick, costume and all. His sleigh, a US Army jeep. Brookins and the men of the 28th passed out candy and baked goods to the children of Wiltz. Songs were sung. It was a wonderful day for the free citizens of the town and for the American soldiers who would not be home for Christmas in 1944. Ten days following the party, this part of Luxembourg erupted as the Battle of the Bulge began. Richard Brookins and the rest of the 28th Division pulled out and never gave their time in Wiltz a second thought. Following the war, the people of Wiltz vowed to never forgot the kindness and generosity of Brookins and his fellow American soldiers who brought back St. Nicolas Day to Wiltz on December 6th, 1944. Beginning in 1947, the annual St Nicholas day became the American St Nick celebration, complete with someone dressed as Saint Nick in a jeep re-tracing the exact route Dick Brookins took in 1944. A shocked Richard Brookins knew nothing about the annual American Saint Nick celebration in his honour until 1977 when he was invited back to re-create his role. Thousands of people turned out to welcome him. He had become a hero.

Churchill's Bodyguard, The Sewer Bomb (S1, EP12)
 
 
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.

In 1885, the British army invaded Burma and deposed its king. He died in exile, ending a thousand years of monarchy. The royal family vanished, and the country was plunged into war and the longest military dictatorship of modern times. But after a century of silence they are back, and they're on a journey to bring the family - past and present - back together. Filmed through three years of seismic change in Burma, this is the story of a family and a country emerging from the darkness.

The answer lies in the extraordinary way in which the people understood and mastered their environment, which in turn is reflected in their identity and social structures.

The battle for supremacy begins as the ancient world divides in two: Roman vs. Barbarian. Hannibal of Carthage builds the first great barbarian alliance to defeat Rome before it becomes unstoppable. The general launches an audacious and unprecedented campaign to strike at the heart of the Republic, conquering the Alps and leaving a trail of death across Italy as he aims for the capital city. But while Hannibal wins the battles, he loses the war. With no viable adversary remaining to stop its advance, Rome marches across the barbarian world, pillaging the land and its people, and reaping a bloody revenge on the tribes that fought alongside Hannibal. When Lusitania comes under the Roman sword, one man emerges to drive them back. This time it's not a military strategist but a simple shepherd, Viriathus, who unites his people to fight against Rome's overwhelming might, the first wave of resistance in an epic 700-year struggle for freedom.

There were battles fought long and hard, from Guadalcanal in the Pacific to the siege at Leningrad, where more Soviets died than the combined casualties of all western Allies in the war. Others were rife with mistakes: short-lived, ill-conceived campaigns where targets were underestimated, whether it was the Allied forces' failed attempt to secure the defection of the French navy at Dakar or the end of the Japanese naval campaign at Leyte Gulf, where the Japanese first employed their shocking kamikaze tactics. This episode explores the breadth of these campaigns, including some of the more controversial strategies of the war.

Cornwall is probably not the first place that springs to mind when thinking about the Roman and Byzantine Empires. But in a field overlooking a cove, near the Cornish village of Padstow, locals have picked up a wealth of 1500-year-old pottery and metalwork. Geophysic results suggest an Iron Age village may have once been located on the site, but archaeologists think the cove may have also been a port for Mediterranean traders. The team dig for evidence to support this theory, and after three days they believe they know how the site might have looked in its prime.

Burma's Lost Royals,
Rec
 
 
In 1885, the British army invaded Burma and deposed its king. He died in exile, ending a thousand years of monarchy. The royal family vanished, and the country was plunged into war and the longest military dictatorship of modern times. But after a century of silence they are back, and they're on a journey to bring the family - past and present - back together. Filmed through three years of seismic change in Burma, this is the story of a family and a country emerging from the darkness.

For centuries, an extraordinary war has raged across the world's oceans - above and below the waves. Shipbuilders have designed bigger and faster vessels to outwit and crush their opponents - many carrying terrifying weapons. This program shows how technology transformed naval warfare and that tells the stories of the greatest battles, escapes and disasters. From the deadly 18th-century ships of the line, the primitive submarines of the American Civil War, the landing craft of the D-Day beaches, the brave hospital ships of both World Wars to the might of nuclear warships - these vessels and their crews have shaped world history and inspired men and women to acts of incredible bravery. The first half of the 20th-century was in many ways the golden era of the modern warship - escorting convoys, bombarding invasion beaches and engaging in sea battles. We tell the story of the clash though the only surviving warship from that battle, HMS Caroline. We dive into the dark water of Scapa Flow to find and recreate the scuttled First World War German fleet and tell the story of how 20 years after their sinking a U-Boat slipped into Scapa Flow and sank one of Britain's prized capital warships HMS Royal Oak.

We delve into the history of the very first amphibious experiments in the early 20th century in the form of the Short S.27 before moving onto a look at the establishment of the Royal Naval Air Service during World War 1. From there we move onto the development of the aircraft carrier and carrier based aircraft such as the North American B-25 Mitchell and the engineering parameters that were established to ensure they fulfilled the carrier requirements. Finally, we look at the very latest in carrier technology and the introduction of the ski-jump and catapults.

In the 19th-century, weapons became more sophisticated and more deadly, and the results were higher casualties with devastating wounds. Trains were part of the problem but they became part of the solution with the introduction of ambulance trains. These hospitals on wheels were first introduced in the American Civil War, but were vastly improved in the First World War. Medical historian Emily Mayhew takes the journey made a century ago by the wounded from trench to Home Front hospital, while Edgar Jones of the Maudsley Hospital explains how shell-shock victims were transported and treated.

Treasures Decoded, Bog Bodies (S4, EP7)
Rec
 
 
In 1950, three Danish farmers came across a grizzly find - a body, buried in a peat bog. It was a murder, but the police will never catch the killers. This crime took place more than 2000 years ago. The victim was named 'Tollund Man', and he is a so-called 'Bog Body' - a naturally mummified corpse buried in a peat bog during Europe's Iron Age. From Ireland to Russia, hundreds of Bog Bodies have been discovered in these soggy environments on the margins of civilisation. Thanks to the cold, acidic conditions of the bogs and a cocktail of powerful antibacterial chemicals released by plants within the bog - these bodies are incredibly well preserved. Unlike most ancient remains, Bog Bodies can retain their skin, hair, clothing and even the contents of their stomachs, preserved for millennia. They provide a unique window into the past, giving us valuable insights into life... and death... from a time and place with few written records. Many of the bodies show shocking signs of violence, but for decades there were few explanations as to why these people were so brutally killed. Now, using state-of-the-art techniques borrowed from police forensic laboratories, archaeologists are beginning to solve these ancient murder mysteries. It transpires that many Bog Bodies were not unfortunate victims of crime, nor even despised criminals. They were in fact the elite of society and their deaths were most likely human sacrifices. Their deaths were part of a highly ritualised ceremony designed to appease angry gods living in the bogs. We follow an international team of experts as they deploy the latest scientific techniques to unravel the mystery of the world's most intriguing Bog Bodies: Denmark's Tollund Man, Grauballe Man and Haraldskaer Woman. Ireland's Clonycavan Man and Oldcroghan Man and England's Lindow Man. Along the way, they will discover new insights into a crucial period of World History - the Iron Age.

We reveal how the battle unfolded, the key personalities involved and how the United States were able to inflict devastating damage on the Japanese fleet that proved irreparable. We examine the key aircraft of the battle including the F4F-Wildcat, the only effective fighter available to the United States Navy and Marine Corps in the Pacific Theatre during the early part of World War II alongside the Douglas SBD Dauntless. The SBD is best remembered as the bomber that delivered the fatal blows to the Japanese carriers at the Battle. We also see other aircraft featured in the conflict such as the PBY Catalina, an American flying boat used for reconnaissance and the TBF Avenger, a torpedo bomber that first saw action during the Battle of Midway. Finally, we take a look at the Japanese forces including the Aichi D3A, the primary dive bomber of the Imperial Japanese Navy and the Mitsubishi A6M Zero, its main fighter.

It is one of the great wonders of the ancient world, but who built the magnificent city of Petra in Jordan and why? Between 400BC and 106BC, Petra was the capital of the hugely rich Nabataean Empire. But what treasure remains buried there and what dark secrets remain hidden in this mysterious place after all these years? We travel on a night time expedition with Bedouin treasure hunters and learn more about how and why ancient artefacts are traded in the back streets of the city. It is extraordinary to think that only 15 percent of the city has been unearthed.

They owe their success, though, to a gigantic lie: a phantom army, armed with inflatable tanks and wooden rifles; but also to a whole network of double agents, most of them entirely fictitious. And leading this campaign of disinformation - the most sophisticated ever dreamt up - is one man: Winston Churchill. More Info >

This footage, much of which has not been seen for decades, gives an intimacy and immediacy to stories we thought we knew. Six new episodes cover events from the 1960s and 1970s, including the assassination of Malcom X, the Tet Offensive, the Apollo 13 mission and the Tornado Super Outbreak of 1974. We also rediscover the Impeachment of Bill Clinton from 1994 and the DC Sniper attacks from October 2002.

Truk Lagoon: Japan's Pearl Harbour,
 
 
The planet's greatest concentration of WW2 shipwrecks lie in a remote lagoon in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, and outside the diving community, nobody seems to have heard of it. Throughout the Second World War, the lagoon was the principal base for the Japanese fleet - a mid-ocean fortress they believed to be impenetrable. Then came Operation Hailstone, a massive airstrike that changed the course of the Pacific War. Over two days in 1944, American aircraft sunk around 40 Japanese ships and destroyed hundreds of warplanes. This was the American payback for the attack on Pearl Harbour. More Info >

With the guidance of a man known as the Moses of America, they expect to survive these world-shattering events. But survivors and sceptics attest to the failings of faith - and the power of delusion.

Treasures Decoded, Bog Bodies (S4, EP7)

In 1950, three Danish farmers came across a grizzly find - a body, buried in a peat bog. It was a murder, but the police will never catch the killers. This crime took place more than 2000 years ago. The victim was named 'Tollund Man', and he is a so-called 'Bog Body' - a naturally mummified corpse buried in a peat bog during Europe's Iron Age. From Ireland to Russia, hundreds of Bog Bodies have been discovered in these soggy environments on the margins of civilisation. Thanks to the cold, acidic conditions of the bogs and a cocktail of powerful antibacterial chemicals released by plants within the bog - these bodies are incredibly well preserved. Unlike most ancient remains, Bog Bodies can retain their skin, hair, clothing and even the contents of their stomachs, preserved for millennia. They provide a unique window into the past, giving us valuable insights into life... and death... from a time and place with few written records. Many of the bodies show shocking signs of violence, but for decades there were few explanations as to why these people were so brutally killed. Now, using state-of-the-art techniques borrowed from police forensic laboratories, archaeologists are beginning to solve these ancient murder mysteries. It transpires that many Bog Bodies were not unfortunate victims of crime, nor even despised criminals. They were in fact the elite of society and their deaths were most likely human sacrifices. Their deaths were part of a highly ritualised ceremony designed to appease angry gods living in the bogs. We follow an international team of experts as they deploy the latest scientific techniques to unravel the mystery of the world's most intriguing Bog Bodies: Denmark's Tollund Man, Grauballe Man and Haraldskaer Woman. Ireland's Clonycavan Man and Oldcroghan Man and England's Lindow Man. Along the way, they will discover new insights into a crucial period of World History - the Iron Age.

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 >

This documentary - filmed across Australia, Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore - investigates the threat to Asia Pacific from supporters of the Islamic State group. Featuring interviews with senior jihadis, their families and counterterrorism experts, this program details why radicalisation is spreading across the region, and how it is affecting everyday people and communities. Over 750 Indonesians, Malaysians and Australians have gone to Syria to join ISIS or other militant groups. We tell the stories of the few who have gone to Syria and Iraq, and uncover the reasons behind - and the tragic consequences - of their radicalisation.

For the final episode of the 2008 series, the team heads to the village of Portskewett in South Wales to investigate a field which is intriguingly named Harold's Field. Local legend has it that King Harold built a hunting lodge there the year before he lost the Battle of Hastings. The field is a mass of big earthworks, and historical documents do record Harold building a lodge somewhere round the village of Portskewett. Within minutes of digging, the team discover that the site was not confined to just Harold and the Saxon period, having been used since late Roman times until well into the Middle Ages.

Truk Lagoon: Japan's Pearl Harbour,
 
 
The planet's greatest concentration of WW2 shipwrecks lie in a remote lagoon in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, and outside the diving community, nobody seems to have heard of it. Throughout the Second World War, the lagoon was the principal base for the Japanese fleet - a mid-ocean fortress they believed to be impenetrable. Then came Operation Hailstone, a massive airstrike that changed the course of the Pacific War. Over two days in 1944, American aircraft sunk around 40 Japanese ships and destroyed hundreds of warplanes. This was the American payback for the attack on Pearl Harbour. More Info >

Edison,
Rec
 
 
He invented the light bulb, the phonograph, the movie camera, and the nickel-iron-alkaline storage battery. He devised a system for producing synthetic carbolic acid and for wireless telegraph communication between moving trains and stations. By the time of his death, Thomas Alva Edison could lay claim to 1093 successful US patents. But perhaps his greatest invention was himself. Born to a Canadian innkeeper, Edison received his only formal education from his mother at the kitchen table. His first invention was a commercial flop, but by the time he was 35, he had become the nation's most prominent celebrity inventor. Tragically, the pace of his work took a terrible toll on his private life. His first wife appears to have killed herself with a lethal dose of morphine; his second was desperately unhappy. And yet, in so many ways, Edison transformed daily life for millions of people and in the process turned himself into the most famous American in the world.

Once they were at the cutting edge of design and construction, now they lie disused, contaminated and dangerous. But who built them? And why were they abandoned? A strange group of structures rusting away in the Atlantic ocean off the east coast of England... A shadowy abandoned concrete pyramid in the American mid-west... One of the biggest machines ever built, now lying forgotten in a field near Berlin, Germany.... an extraordinary empty complex in the very heart of a city. Once these extraordinary places and objects were at the cutting edge of design and construction, but now they stand disused, sometimes contaminated and sometimes dangerous.

For many Europeans, Europe today is synonymous with the "Christian Occident". But like so much of what has shaped our civilization, Christianity also comes from the Orient. And it is not the only "one-faith belief" that shapes the continent: even before Christianity, Judaism spread throughout the Roman Empire. And on the Iberian Peninsula Muslim Moors rule from the 8th to the 15th century. But that is not enough; the faith community of Christians is breaking up as well.

In 1960 he restarted the war. The threat of another country falling to communism proved enough to draw the United States into the conflict. Vietnam became a battlefield for the Cold War, a place where communism confronted the free world.

For centuries, an extraordinary war has raged across the world's oceans - above and below the waves. Shipbuilders have designed bigger and faster vessels to outwit and crush their opponents - many carrying terrifying weapons. This program shows how technology transformed naval warfare and that tells the stories of the greatest battles, escapes and disasters. From the deadly 18th-century ships of the line, the primitive submarines of the American Civil War, the landing craft of the D-day beaches, the brave hospital ships of both World Wars to the might of nuclear warships - these vessels and their crews have shaped world history and inspired men and women to acts of incredible bravery. A look at the silent threat of submarines, from tests in the River Thames, to the German's deadly U-boat attacks in World War II.

The Circus, Part One (S1, EP1)
Rec
 
 
Explore the colourful history of this popular, influential and distinctly American form of entertainment, from the first one-ring show at the end of the 18th century to 1956, when the Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey big top was pulled down for the last time. A transformative place for reinvention, where young women could become lion tamers and young men travelled the world as roustabouts, the circus allowed people to be liberated from the roles assigned by society and find an accepting community that had eluded them elsewhere. Drawing upon a vast and richly visual archive, and featuring a host of performers, historians and aficionados, The Circus brings to life an era when Circus Day would shut down a town, its stars were among the most famous people in the country, and multitudes gathered to see the improbable and the impossible, the exotic and the spectacular. Through the intertwined stories of several of the most innovative and influential impresarios of the late 19th century, including PT Barnum, James Bailey and the five Ringling Brothers, the series reveals the circus as a phenomenon created by a rapidly expanding and increasingly industrialised nation. It explores how its 'dangerous' and 'exotic' attractions revealed the country's notions about race and Western dominance, and shows how the circus subverted prevailing standards of 'respectability' with its unconventional, titillating and 'freakish' entertainments.

The Lancaster at War,
Rec
 
 
The Avro Lancaster has been described as the outstanding bomber of World War II. At a time when Hitler's armies had spread the Nazi creed and empire across Occupied Europe, the heavy bombers were the only means of carrying the offensive back to the Nazi heartland. We detail the Lancaster's capabilities and its exceptional service record, which included taking part in precision raids against the launch sites of Hitler's 'V' weapons. The Lancaster's operational history ranges from the destruction of Hamburg to the massive food drops on Occupied Territory that will save the lives of thousands. Incorporating carefully researched archive and feature film material, with exclusive interviews of surviving Lancaster aircrew, this program will not only appeal to those with an interest in military aviation, but to all who appreciate the spirit, resolution, stamina and courage of ordinary people.

For centuries, an extraordinary war has raged across the world's oceans - above and below the waves. Shipbuilders have designed bigger and faster vessels to outwit and crush their opponents - many carrying terrifying weapons. This program shows how technology transformed naval warfare and tells the stories of the greatest battles, escapes and disasters. From the deadly 18th-century ships of the line, the primitive submarines of the American Civil War, the landing craft of the D-day beaches, the brave hospital ships of both World Wars to the might of nuclear warships - these vessels and their crews have shaped world history and inspired men and women to acts of incredible bravery.

Explore the colourful history of this popular, influential and distinctly American form of entertainment, from the first one-ring show at the end of the 18th century to 1956, when the Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey big top was pulled down for the last time. A transformative place for reinvention, where young women could become lion tamers and young men travelled the world as roustabouts, the circus allowed people to be liberated from the roles assigned by society and find an accepting community that had eluded them elsewhere. Drawing upon a vast and richly visual archive, and featuring a host of performers, historians and aficionados, The Circus brings to life an era when Circus Day would shut down a town, its stars were among the most famous people in the country, and multitudes gathered to see the improbable and the impossible, the exotic and the spectacular. Through the intertwined stories of several of the most innovative and influential impresarios of the late 19th century, including PT Barnum, James Bailey and the five Ringling Brothers, the series reveals the circus as a phenomenon created by a rapidly expanding and increasingly industrialised nation. It explores how its 'dangerous' and 'exotic' attractions revealed the country's notions about race and Western dominance, and shows how the circus subverted prevailing standards of 'respectability' with its unconventional, titillating and 'freakish' entertainments.
