Combat Ships, Mighty Wooden Warships (S1, EP9)
 
 
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. Combat Ships 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.

Between 1939 and 1945 war came to Britain's railways. By now an established technology, in the Second World War trains operating in Britain came into their own - bringing troops back home after the humiliation of Dunkirk, as well as taking hundreds of thousands of city children to safety. The programme interviews eye-witnesses to both railway adventures, and discovers the disused Tube station where the evacuations were coordinated. There are tales of the heroism of the railway staff during the Blitz, and how a small siding in a Hampshire railway station played its part in the preparations for D-Day.

Spring 1945: In the Pacific, Americans are fighting on the island of Okinawa, the gateway to Japan, while kamikaze pilots wreak havoc on the fleet offshore. Meanwhile, in Europe, allied forces rapidly push across Germany from the East and West, and American and British troops discover the true horrors of the Nazi's industrialised barbarism at Buchenwald, Dachau, Mauthausen and hundreds of other concentration camps. Finally, on May 8, with their country in ruins and their Fuhrer dead by his own hand, the Germans surrender. This series, directed and produced by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, tells the story of the Second World War through the personal accounts of a handful of men and women from four quintessentially American towns. The series explores the most intimate human dimensions of the greatest cataclysm in history, a worldwide catastrophe that touched the lives of every family on every street in every town in America and demonstrates that in extraordinary times, there are no ordinary lives. Throughout the series, the indelible experience of combat is brought vividly to life as veterans describe what it was like to fight and kill and see men die at places like Monte Cassino and Anzio and Omaha Beach; the Hurtgen Forest and the Vosges Mountains and the Ardennes; and on the other side of the world at Guadalcanal and Tarawa and Saipan; Peleliu and the Philippine Sea and Okinawa. In all of the battle scenes, dramatic historical footage and photographs are combined with extraordinarily realistic sound effects to give the film a terrifying, visceral immediacy. The film honours the bravery, endurance and sacrifice of the generation of Americans who lived through what will always be known simply as The 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 Chicago History Museum in Chicago, Illinois, a pair of ostrich feather fans stored in the museum's archives tells of a risque dancer who scandalised the Chicago's World Fair. At the Joseph Jefferson Mansion and Gardens on Lake Peigneur in Louisiana, an antique urn is one of few relics to survive a terrifying earth-shaking disaster that defies belief. And at the Los Angeles Police Museum in Los Angeles, California, twisted bullet fragments are all that remain of a notorious gangster's brutal mob-land slaying that remains shrouded in mystery.

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. In the season finale, we look at the digital revolution's domination of the music world. Michael Jackson released the greatest selling album of all time, Madonna created a persona just as important as her music, and Public Enemy exhorted their fans to 'Fight the Power'. And there was a new visual component to it all courtesy of MTV. The digital revolution hit the music world as CDs replaced LPs. Whitney Houston, Guns N' Roses, U2, David Bowie and Run-DMC were some of the other major artists of the decade. More Info >

Was Al Capone the quintessential self-made American man, a ruthless killer, or both? From his early days rising through the ranks of New York's gangs, to his slow demise in the aftermath of the St. Valentine's Day Massacre, this film chronicles the complicated life of one of America's favourite mob bosses. Capone was not only a bootlegger, killer, and gangster, but also a popular public figure who opened one of the nation's first soup kitchens, and was a devoted patron and guardian of jazz, giving African American musicians opportunities that they would otherwise never have had. More than 80 years have passed since the height of Capone's power, yet his impact is still felt today. Al Capone: Icon examines Capone's personal history and lasting legacy and unveils his unexpected connections to modern-day organised crime, law enforcement, popular culture from movies to rap music, and even everyday life in Chicago.

May to December, 1945. In June, the terrible battle on Okinawa ends, with Americans suffering their worst losses of the Pacific war; 92,000 Japanese soldiers, and tens of thousands of Okinawan civilians, have also been killed in the fighting. But for most of Japan's rulers, despite the agony their people are enduring, unconditional surrender still remains unthinkable. Then, on August 6, 1945, an American plane drops an atomic bomb on Hiroshima. Two days later, Russia declares war against Japan. A second atomic bomb is dropped on Nagazaki. Finally, Japan agrees to surrender. In the following months, hundreds of thousands of American servicemen and women will come home, and try to learn how to live in a world without war. This series tells the story of the Second World War through the personal accounts of a handful of men and women from four quintessentially American towns. The series explores the most intimate human dimensions of the greatest cataclysm in history, a worldwide catastrophe that touched the lives of every family on every street in every town in America, and demonstrates that in extraordinary times, there are no ordinary lives.

In 2017, the CIA will declassify more than a million documents connected to the assassination of JFK. However, what few realise is that thousands of these documents have already been released. When pieced together - for the first time - they show a deeper, more complex story about who Lee Harvey Oswald was, what motivated him, and his surprising plan for after the assassination. In this six-hour series, Bob Baer and an elite team of investigators will go around the world to piece together the whole story.

Buried in archives and hidden museums lie some of the most controversial artefacts in history - items that provide proof that the supernatural exists. Now with the help of a team of experts and scientists from leading universities across the country, we'll examine cases using rigorous testing to put to bed any doubts of their truth. From evidence that extraterrestrial life exists to confirmation of the Chupacabra, we'll go over the facts and figures to establish why the paranormal is the new normal.

This special event features the most critical military operation of World War II. This program presents this iconic battle using newly discovered colour footage, much of which has never been seen. For the first time, viewers can see the largest amphibious assault in history - 5000 Allied ships landing over 160,000 soldiers across a 50 mile stretch of Normandy beaches. This film is presented through the personal accounts of soldiers on both sides, focusing on three specific units: the American 1st Division at Omaha Beach, the American 507th Paratroopers, and the German 352nd Division. This program will tell the story in the first person, in the words of those who lived it, with actor voices reading from soldier diaries, oral histories, and immediate post-combat interviews - from famous leaders like Eisenhower, Rommel, Omar Bradley, and Adolph Hitler, to the unknown boots-on-the-ground soldiers, both American and German, who fought and died in one of history's bloodiest battles.

In 2017, the CIA will declassify more than a million documents connected to the assassination of JFK. However, what few realise is that thousands of these documents have already been released. When pieced together - for the first time - they show a deeper, more complex story about who Lee Harvey Oswald was, what motivated him, and his surprising plan for after the assassination. In this six-hour series, Bob Baer and an elite team of investigators will go around the world to piece together the whole story. This is not a conspiracy theory - this is a shocking criminal investigation. The declassified government files especially shed light on two areas that are just as relevant, if not more so, today; our complex relationship with Russia and the secrets of Cuba. The team will track down the leads that the Warren Commission couldn't risk because of the potentially devastating consequences. More Info >

Writer, actress and comedian Fiona O'Loughlin, mother of five and third generation Australian, was conscious of her Irish heritage but not sure what it meant. Her eight great-grandparents migrated from Ireland in the closing decades of the 19th century, but what influence has that fact had on Fiona? More broadly, what influence has Irish migration had on Australia's way of life? As Fiona puts it on her journey from coast to coast: what have the Irish ever done for us? A question she asks of writers, comedians, historians, nuns and bushmen as she discovers the stories of settlers, survivors, saints, squatters, sports stars, storytellers, sermonisers, sinners and scoundrels.

The Hydro's creator was Mr Mark Foy (1865-1950) of Sydney retailing fame, a self-made man of considerable wealth and influence. Foy's flamboyant personality and lifestyle, remains very much at the heart of the Hydro even today. Long corridors and sweeping views still whisper the gossip and glamour of a magical bygone era.

Is there anything closer to the heart of Australians than beer? More than any other ritual in the past 200 years, two men sharing a beer has defined the Australian character. It's brought us together in pubs and sporting grounds, lubricating our friendships, quenching our thirst and rewarding our labours at day's end. Your Shout is a the definitive history of beer in Australia, an untold story that both delights and surprises. As far back as Captain James Cook's first charting of the East Coast of Australia in 1770, beer has played a central role in our history. Cook actually brewed beer on that voyage to sterilise the ship's fetid drinking water. When rum-fuelled drunkenness swept the early European settlement, beer was officially promoted as a healthier alternative. While home brewing was the norm for many early settlers the brewing of beer soon became one of the major industries of Australia and established some of the nation's great family fortunes. Our first official brewer was John Boston whose concoction was made from Indian corn and with cape gooseberry leaves. Then, in 1824, Peter Degraves built the Cascade brewery in Tasmania, which has survived to the present day. Today Australian beer is loved and enjoyed around the world, and two great corporations dominate local industry with sales of $8 billion a year. Your Shout is the history documentary all Australia has been waiting to see.

Neil Oliver heads offshore and ticks a big one off his bucket list. He's on the trail of that most majestic marine creature - the mighty Orca. Neil also examines the notion that the Anzac spirit was forged - not on the beaches of Gallipoli - but in the port of Albany where Australian and New Zealand troops gathered for their departure to WWI. Brendan Moar reimagines the night Skylab fell to earth in Esperance in 1979. Marine ecologist Dr Emma Johnston investigates the now politically incorrect industry of whaling in the Western Australian town of Albany. Dr Alice Garner travels to Lucky Bay to test whether it can legitimately claim the title of 'whitest sand in Australia'. And Professor Tim Flannery makes the journey offshore to Bald Island in search of an endangered marsupial with a taste for truffles. More Info >

From the capital of South Australia to the capital of the Northern Territory, the train known as The Ghan bisects a continent north/south, a journey of 3000 km. We join it in Adelaide, meet Robyn and Bruce, responsible for passenger comfort and overall train management respectively, as they make ready and then commence our journey north. The first stop is the old railway town of Port Augusta - where Bruce introduces us to the relaxed lifestyle he enjoys when not responsible for all aboard it. Then we begin the journey into and through Australia's harsh interior. The line initially follows the first railway and that, in turn, followed the line of the overland telegraph. That brings us to the story of the camels.

Join Mike Munro as he explores Australia's history of rebels and outlaws, unearthing the truth behind the legends. The brutal gunfight between Ned Kelly's gang and Victorian policeman on the banks of Stringybark Creek is the pivotal event in the Ned Kelly story, transforming Kelly from a petty thief to wanted outlaw and, eventually, a national icon. But were the killings an act of self-defence, as Kelly later claimed? Folklore holds Ned Kelly to be a hero, endlessly mythologised. But what if he was a clear-eyed killer? Our team embarks on the first ever archaeological and scientific investigation of the events at Stringybark Creek to answer the questions. Using the latest cutting-edge survey technology (LiDAR 3D Laser Scanning), traditional archaeology and forensic ballistics testing, together with new historical evidence, the team put conflicting claims to the test. Finally, we bring descendants from both sides of the story together for the first time to hear the team reveal their findings. Controversial and highly provocative, this investigation challenges the legend that has shaped our national identity and aims to change how Australians see their most famous folk icon: the hero of the underdog.

Mike Munro's real surname is not Munro: it's Kenniff. The notorious Kenniff brothers were the last of Australia's 'wild colonial boys' roaming remote north Queensland at the turn of the century, stealing cattle and horses with the confidence and skill of organised criminals. Their careers culminated in a showdown in the Carnarvon Ranges that left one policeman and a civilian dead. Their victims' bodies were found burned and chopped into pieces. Patrick and James Kenniff were caught and tried for wilful murder - but they maintained their innocence to the bitter end. What turns thieves into brutal mutilators? Was there reasonable doubt that they didn't do the deed? Mike Munro needs to know - this isn't just a question about the nature of crime and punishment, this story is deeply personal. The Kenniff's were Mike's ancestors and the cause of shame for his family through generations. The Lawless team embark on a factual and forensic analysis of the crime to search for answers, and Mike meets descendants from the other side of the story. Against the backdrop of a brutal event, this case marks a pivotal point in the history of our evolving laws and nationhood, and this investigation makes for an extraordinary personal journey for host Mike Munro.

What compelled ancient man to move colossal stones, in some cases weighing thousands of pounds, and to build remarkably similar stone monuments all around the world? From the jungles of Costa Rica to England's rural countryside, ancient people achieved extraordinary feats of construction without advanced tools or technology. Is it possible that extraterrestrials instructed the ancients to build these complex structures? Or were our ancestors driven to create these monoliths in order to reconnect with celestial travellers who once walked the Earth? Could ancient monoliths hold advanced, extraterrestrial powers we have yet to realise? And if so, just what will happen when we unlock the mystery of the monoliths?

This program tells the story of the birth of the surf boom in Australia, a golden decade when surfing was transformed into a sport and culture with its own music, movies, fashions and heroes. Underpinning this transition was a small group of surfboard artisans who set up their primitive factories in a former market garden at Brookvale, close to the favoured wave spots of Dee Why Point and Fairy Bower. These pioneers became known as The Brookvale Six.

No Asylum: Anne Frank's Story,
Rec
 
 
An unknown chapter of Anne Frank's life has recently been uncovered. A volunteer was sorting through Holocaust manuscripts in the YIVO archives at the Institute for Jewish Research when she came upon letters written by Anne Frank's father. Otto Frank wrote dozens of letters to various contacts in the US Government desperately trying to save his family from the clutches of the Nazis, letters that were lost until now. Otto's letters and the US State Department's responses paint a picture of the world's failure to respond to the plight of Jewish refugees. In this film, Anne Frank's surviving family, Buddy Elias and Eva Schloss, relate the unknown story of the Frank family's frantic search for sanctuary. And in so doing, the film retells the Anne Frank story, a poignant reminder of the plight of a world-famous refugee who has no where to go.

Rec
 
 
For seventy years a wooded site an hour outside Warsaw has kept hidden one of the most appalling secrets of WWII the true nature, scale and operation of Treblinka, one of Hitler's most lethal extermination camps. Bulldozed in 1943 by the Nazis in an attempt to destroy all evidence of what had happened, the site was planted with trees and a Ukrainian farmer installed. This film follows the work of British forensic archaeologist Dr Caroline Sturdy Colls investigating this 20th century cover-up, as she pieces together the first definitive description of Treblinka 2. Even today the location of the gas chambers, where over 870,000 Jews and Gypsies were murdered, is still not known for certain. The location of key buildings, some burial pits and even the size of the camp are all still in dispute. Through her painstaking investigations over five years a forensically accurate picture of Treblinka has emerged, and in this film we follow Dr Sturdy Colls as she returns to Treblinka to complete her work. This summer the first ever LiDar aerial survey of a death camp site was carried out, revealing a full plan of Treblinka 1 and 2 as well as a host of new evidence. The value of a LiDar survey is that it enables the creation of an aerial ground survey where there are trees and vegetation by stripping them away digitally - so allowing for the first time analysis of all disturbances to the ground beneath. Dr Sturdy-Colls' work at Treblinka is the first attempt since the end of WWII to establish what happened at Treblinka 1 and 2. The Nazis claimed that Treblinka 2 was a railway transit camp through which the Jews of the Warsaw Ghetto were transported before being moved further East, a carefully constructed lie that is repeated even today by Holocaust deniers. Dr Sturdy Colls' work, in conjunction with the Museum authorities at Treblinka, is intended after 70 years to provide a conclusive account of what happened at Treblinka.

Shattered by the Republican victory, Clinton begins to sideline his most trusted advisers in favour of an aggressive political consultant named Dick Morris who uses extensive polling to diagnose the administration's weaknesses and develop strategies to correct them. The Republican 'Contract with America' is riding high, and by spring 1995, Gingrich and his allies select the ground on which to wage their war: a plan to eliminate the federal budget deficit by drastically cutting Medicare and Medicaid. The plan leads to a government shutdown and slowly the tide begins to turn toward the President, who reclaims the political centre with a stream of new initiatives that will curb big government and appeal to middle class families. Clinton wins the 1996 election in a landslide, pulling off one of the greatest turnarounds in political history. But events have been set in motion that will soon divide the country and nearly destroy Clinton's presidency. More Info >

In Adolf Hitler's bunker in Berlin, bombarded day and night by the Russian army, an elegant woman of around 40 poisons her six children before committing suicide. Her name was Magda Goebbels, and she was the wife of the notorious and sinister propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels, and the Third Reich's true First Lady. From this inaugural scene, this documentary, in the form of a psychological thriller, attempts to understand how Magdalena Friedlander became Magda Goebbels. A woman who bore the name of the Jewish stepfather who raised her. A woman who married a wealthy automobile magnate with libertarian ideas, before divorcing him, and becoming an emancipated young woman at the height of fashion. For Magda Goebbels is as much a product of history - that of Nazism - as of her own tortured psyche.

The 101 Who Made The Twentieth Century,

The history of mankind is a never-ending story of change, revolution, evolution - but surely no span of a hundred years can claim to have changed the world so dramatically, so rapidly and so irreversibly as the 20th-century. A century where the empires of the past crumbled to make way for new superpowers and a new age. Built on science, exploration, and a desire to express new creative possibilities. A century where the world was drawn into one war after another. But where radio, film, television, cars, planes and finally computers drew us closer together than at any other point in history. It was a century of unprecedented change. Change that was born out of the actions of individuals - what they created, what they discovered, what they destroyed. Who were the 101 people who drove the changes in every aspect of life that made the 20th-century and set up the 21st? More than a decade since the close of the century, we can take a considered look at the people most responsible for the events that changed their world and made ours. In this series we count down - from 101 to one - the names of those who, in the judgement of experts, including those who contribute to the series, most influentially shaped the century and our world. This episode we count down from 75 to 63 and showcase some of the most surprising characters in our showcase. From Josephine Baker, who walked along Paris streets with her pet cheetah, to leaders who have forever changed their countries and our idea of politics. If nothing else, this episode shows us that influence can come in many different flavours - some nicer than others. More Info >

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 re-connection with our alien ancestors? This season, we uncover more astonishing new evidence of extraterrestrial intervention on Earth than ever before. According to legend, an ancient curse was placed upon the tomb of King Tutankhamun, and when that tomb was opened in 1922, a series of terrible events occurred. A curse was also placed on King Tut's father Akhenaten, and during the rehearsal of a play dramatising the lifting of this curse, similar tragedies followed. Could a curse truly exist, but in the form of alien technology that is protecting an incredible secret about our past? Is there hidden power in the words inscribed on so-called 'magic bricks' found in King Tut's tomb, or in those contained in the play to lift Akhenaten's curse that are connected to some extraterrestrial force? Ancient astronaut theorists suggest that The Pharaohs' Curse was put in place to protect not only the truth about an otherworldly event in our past, but also an extraterrestrial device - a device that some believe still exists today, buried deep beneath the Earth - on Oak Island.

A social history documentary series featuring stories of human interest from 1940, exploring the courage and resilience of the human spirit during the Battle for Britain. People from all over the globe who joined the Royal Air Force explain what it was like to live through this fundamental conflict. The RAF had won the battle for aerial supremacy by day. But by night, the outcome was far from certain. We look at the German development of bombing by night - Night Blitzes. We argue that this was still a part of the Battle for Britain, which continued until May 1941 - six months after the official end of the Battle. With CGI effects, we'll recall the terror of a Night Blitz raid (7th September 1940) where 1200 German aircraft bombed the City and hear about civilians' experiences.

Adolf Hitler was appointed Reich chancellor on 30 January, 1933. Once they had seized power in Germany, the Nazi's no longer relinquished it until their demise on 8 May, 1945. The Third Reich lasted for 12 years, three months and nine days. It began with great hopes and unprecedented jubilation, and ended after a world war in which 50 million people were killed, Germany was destroyed and the European Jews murdered. We embark on a unique journey through the bleakest chapter of German history. Michael Kloft traces the story of the Third Reich, painting a picture of Nazi dictatorship behind the propaganda by utilising what in some cases is previously unpublished footage. In describing the politics, day-to-day life, the war years and the crimes of the Nazi state, he is aided by three famous historians: Sir Ian Kershaw has set worldwide standards with his biography of Hitler, Brigitte Hamann illuminates the background to the fascination with the Fuhrer in her groundbreaking studies and Goetz Aly describes the "feel good dictatorship" of the '30s and mercilessly shows how the Germans plundered the rest of Europe in his book, Hitler's Volksstaat.

The war in the Pacific is at last starting to go America's way, yet Japan is more determined than ever to fight to the death. Their idea is to kill as many Americans as possible and test if the US will have the stomach for a long fight. This way, Japan could come out of the war with something. The Americans, meanwhile, are doing everything they can to break Japan's will - including launching the most ruthless aerial fire-bombing campaign the world has ever seen. Will a new secret US weapon offer an even quicker way out and prevent a bloody invasion of Japan?

This program depicts the unique shack communities in the Royal National Park south of Sydney. Established in the 1930s as places where people survived the rigours of the Depression, the shacks have been handed down through the generations from the original builders. Accessible only by steep bush paths, these weekend communities have escaped the ravages of coastal development, and continue to thrive. For decades park authorities challenged the rights of the shack holders and tore down numerous dwellings until the 'shackies' instigated a risky legal case of their own. Through a lively mix of archival materials and shackie interviewees - from miners to artists Margaret Olley and Reg Mombassa - Shack Life portrays one community's struggle for recognition of their emotional connection to land, and the heritage value of a rapidly disappearing way of life.

In 2017, the CIA will declassify more than a million documents connected to the assassination of JFK. However, what few realise is that thousands of these documents have already been released. When pieced together - for the first time - they show a deeper, more complex story about who Lee Harvey Oswald was, what motivated him, and his surprising plan for after the assassination. In this six-hour series, Bob Baer and an elite team of investigators will go around the world to piece together the whole story. This is not a conspiracy theory - this is a shocking criminal investigation. The declassified government files especially shed light on two areas that are just as relevant, if not more so, today; our complex relationship with Russia and the secrets of Cuba. The team will track down the leads that the Warren Commission couldn't risk because of the potentially devastating consequences. More Info >

The year 2017 marks the centenary of one of the most significant and epoch-changing events of the 20th-century - the Russian Revolution. This program uses the private journals of Pierre Gilliard, tutor to the Romanov children, to provide a very intimate and eye-opening account of what the imperial family did and thought, day-by-day, as their world was crumbling around them. Gilliard, a Swiss national, gives an exceptional testimonial of the events that devastated the Russian court between 1905 and 1918. However, it's not just his words that form the narrative for this film. His interest in a new technology photography saw him take hundreds of snapshots of the unfolding life of the Romanov's. The contrast between his rarefied existence and the increasing groundswell of discontent in the masses is one of the program's driving forces. Key events of the period including Rasputin's influence, 1905's Bloody Sunday, the Emperor's abdication and Lenin's rise to power are also covered, with their social and political contexts explored. Meanwhile, historians and experts of the period provide comprehensive analysis. Unfailingly loyal, Gillard was with the Romanov's until the end and was exiled with them to Siberia. After the Tsar's execution, only his Swiss nationality saved him. A privileged, objective witness to these days which turned the world upside down, his account in this mesmerising film gives a whole new insight into this extraordinary period of history.

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 International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine, a plaster cast of hoof prints speaks of a mythic beast that is thought to haunt the woods of New Jersey. At the General Patton Memorial Museum in Chiriaco Summit, California, a massive tank on view harkens back to when a lethal war machine laid siege to an American city. And at the South Eastern Railway Museum in Duluth, Georgia, visitors can view the stately train car of President Warren G. Harding and learn of his untimely and mysterious death while aboard.

Mike Munro's real surname is not Munro: it's Kenniff. The notorious Kenniff brothers were the last of Australia's 'wild colonial boys' roaming remote north Queensland at the turn of the century, stealing cattle and horses with the confidence and skill of organised criminals. Their careers culminated in a showdown in the Carnarvon Ranges that left one policeman and a civilian dead. Their victims' bodies were found burned and chopped into pieces. Patrick and James Kenniff were caught and tried for wilful murder - but they maintained their innocence to the bitter end. What turns thieves into brutal mutilators? Was there reasonable doubt that they didn't do the deed? Mike Munro needs to know - this isn't just a question about the nature of crime and punishment, this story is deeply personal. The Kenniff's were Mike's ancestors and the cause of shame for his family through generations. The Lawless team embark on a factual and forensic analysis of the crime to search for answers, and Mike meets descendants from the other side of the story. Against the backdrop of a brutal event, this case marks a pivotal point in the history of our evolving laws and nationhood, and this investigation makes for an extraordinary personal journey for host Mike Munro.

The extraordinary story of how Lenin, Trotsky and Stalin took control of Russia in just a few fateful months. This film reveals how this most unlikely of regime changes became a reality on 25 October, 1917. It's a story of ambition and suspicion, rivalry and unified struggle, at a time when close friends could swiftly become deadly enemies. Dramatic re-enactments breathe new life into vicious clashes, seminal speeches and the storming of the Winter Palace. Experts including historian Simon Schama and writers Martin Amis and Robert Harris debate and discuss. This gripping documentary also asks: did the revolution create a political culture in which President Vladimir Putin could thrive?

The end of the War in the Pacific is one of the great and most terrible tales of modern history. The Japanese simply would not surrender and continued to fight island by island, foxhole by foxhole. The US Air Force commander tried bombing Japan into submission, firebombing Tokyo. Over 200,000 people died, yet still Japan clung on. In the end, President Truman had to go nuclear, and the fates of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were sealed. The films end with Japan subdued and the revelation of Japanese war crimes. Conventional wisdom has recently changed as more and more secrets have been revealed particularly in the last five to 10 years, when documents, files and photographs have been released. Code-breaking revelations and newly released government papers on both sides of the Atlantic have added a very insightful new dimension to the understanding of this, the world's greatest ever conflict. With the very latest satellite-delivered terrain mapping and state-of-the-art graphics, this story can now be told with the very latest access to information which was not previously available.

The German offensive in 1918 on the Western Front was the country's last great gamble in WWI. The crucial opening phase would hit the British Expeditionary Force and pit Field Marshal Sir Douglas Haig against General Erich Ludendorff. The success or failure of the offensive would prove to be as much about the character and experience of the commanders as it was about their strategies.

We take viewers into the cockpits of the worlds greatest restored fighting aircraft, and into the astonishing lives of the modern day heroes who are dedicating themselves to bringing these engineering masterpieces back to life. The series combines stunning aerial footage with the gritty realism of the dedication and ingenuity needed to breathe new life into the wrecks of battle. Each episode documents the 'life story' of an airframe, its history and pilots, through the eyes of the warbird community charged with bringing history back to flying, fire-breathing life. Rare archive footage of the brutal reality of aerial warfare mixes with expert analysis of the role these aircraft played. Behind the scenes sequences from the multi-million dollar modern rebuilds gives the viewer unique access to the engineers and volunteers facing the almost impossible task of building and flying aircraft that have lain dormant for half a century.

The end of the War in the Pacific is one of the great and most terrible tales of modern history. The Japanese simply would not surrender and continued to fight island by island, foxhole by foxhole. The US Air Force commander tried bombing Japan into submission, firebombing Tokyo. Over 200,000 people died, yet still Japan clung on. In the end, President Truman had to go nuclear, and the fates of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were sealed. The films end with Japan subdued and the revelation of Japanese war crimes. Conventional wisdom has recently changed as more and more secrets have been revealed particularly in the last five to 10 years, when documents, files and photographs have been released. Code-breaking revelations and newly released government papers on both sides of the Atlantic have added a very insightful new dimension to the understanding of this, the world's greatest ever conflict. With the very latest satellite-delivered terrain mapping and state-of-the-art graphics, this story can now be told with the very latest access to information which was not previously available.

The extraordinary story of how Lenin, Trotsky and Stalin took control of Russia in just a few fateful months. This film reveals how this most unlikely of regime changes became a reality on 25 October, 1917. It's a story of ambition and suspicion, rivalry and unified struggle, at a time when close friends could swiftly become deadly enemies. Dramatic re-enactments breathe new life into vicious clashes, seminal speeches and the storming of the Winter Palace. Experts including historian Simon Schama and writers Martin Amis and Robert Harris debate and discuss. This gripping documentary also asks: did the revolution create a political culture in which President Vladimir Putin could thrive?

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 International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine, a plaster cast of hoof prints speaks of a mythic beast that is thought to haunt the woods of New Jersey. At the General Patton Memorial Museum in Chiriaco Summit, California, a massive tank on view harkens back to when a lethal war machine laid siege to an American city. And at the South Eastern Railway Museum in Duluth, Georgia, visitors can view the stately train car of President Warren G. Harding and learn of his untimely and mysterious death while aboard.

LAWLESS - The Real Bushrangers, The Kenniffs (S1, EP4)

Mike Munro's real surname is not Munro: it's Kenniff. The notorious Kenniff brothers were the last of Australia's 'wild colonial boys' roaming remote north Queensland at the turn of the century, stealing cattle and horses with the confidence and skill of organised criminals. Their careers culminated in a showdown in the Carnarvon Ranges that left one policeman and a civilian dead. Their victims' bodies were found burned and chopped into pieces. Patrick and James Kenniff were caught and tried for wilful murder - but they maintained their innocence to the bitter end. What turns thieves into brutal mutilators? Was there reasonable doubt that they didn't do the deed? Mike Munro needs to know - this isn't just a question about the nature of crime and punishment, this story is deeply personal. The Kenniff's were Mike's ancestors and the cause of shame for his family through generations. The Lawless team embark on a factual and forensic analysis of the crime to search for answers, and Mike meets descendants from the other side of the story. Against the backdrop of a brutal event, this case marks a pivotal point in the history of our evolving laws and nationhood, and this investigation makes for an extraordinary personal journey for host Mike Munro.

And at the New Brunswick Public Library in New Brunswick, New Jersey, a tattered hat on display tells of the brutal slaying of a local pastor and choir singer and the scandalous secret that rocked a New Jersey town to its core.

China's last empire, the Qing, lasted from 1644 to 1911. It began in violence and war as the Manchus swept down from the north, but invaders became emperors and three generations of one family ruled for 133 years. Among them, Michael Wood argues, was China's greatest emperor - Kangxi. Under the Qing, China doubled in size to include Xinjiang in the far west, as well as Mongolia and Tibet, creating the essential shape of China today.

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. A truce normally marked the Lunar New Year (Tet), but in 1968, the NLF broke the truce in order to launch the largest battle of the war: The Tet Offensive. More Info >

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. Combat Ships 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 Bomb tells the epic story of a device that has shaped humanity and redefined our existence on this planet. For 70 years, the world has been terrified-yet also comforted-by the atomic bomb. Every generation since 1945 has grown up with the spectre of nuclear holocaust. But whereas this reality dominated life in the 'duck and cover' 1950s, today the threat of nuclear annihilation has largely receded from consciousness. Even as the US and Russia have reduced their stocks of the bomb, the simple black-and-white playing field of the Cold War has been replaced by a complex and unsettled world in which a terrorist with a small nuke in a pickup truck may be a significantly greater threat than the old superpower doomsday scenarios of Fail Safe or Dr. Strangelove. Yet this much is clear: The number of human deaths from war had risen precipitously higher throughout history, until August 1945. From that moment-when the atomic bomb made its appearance on the world stage-the number of deaths from war have dropped enormously. Judged by that measure, the A-bomb may actually have made the world safer so far.

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.

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 Salon De Magie in Loveland, Ohio, visitors to the collection can see a strange wooden box which was used in a chilling ritual that was said to summon the spirits of the dead. At the Bradford Washburn American Mountaineering Museum in Golden, Colorado a weather beaten oxygen tank speaks of an adventurer's tragic end at the highest peak in the world and the controversy over his death which still lingers to this today. And at the New Brunswick Public Library in New Brunswick, New Jersey, a tattered hat on display tells of the brutal slaying of a local pastor and choir singer and the scandalous secret that rocked a New Jersey town to its core.

The Story Of China, The Last Empire (S1, EP5)
Rec
 
 
China's last empire, the Qing, lasted from 1644 to 1911. It began in violence and war as the Manchus swept down from the north, but invaders became emperors and three generations of one family ruled for 133 years. Among them, Michael Wood argues, was China's greatest emperor - Kangxi. Under the Qing, China doubled in size to include Xinjiang in the far west, as well as Mongolia and Tibet, creating the essential shape of China today.

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. A truce normally marked the Lunar New Year (Tet), but in 1968, the NLF broke the truce in order to launch the largest battle of the war: The Tet Offensive. More Info >

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. Combat Ships 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.

At New York City's Municipal Archives, one aged dossier stored in their collection may contain critical information linking a gruesome turn-of-the-century murder to one of the world's most notorious serial killers. At the Secret Service Museum in Washington DC, select visitors can view a weathered 20 dollar bill which was once wielded by a brilliant and elusive master-criminal whose forgeries triggered a decade long manhunt. And at the C. P. Gillete Museum of Arthropod Diversity, a now-extinct insect specimen tells of a devastating swarm of biblical proportions.

Building the Ancient City, Athens (S1, EP1)

In the opening episode of the series Professor Andrew Wallace-Hadrill takes us on a journey across stunning locations in Greece and Italy to find out how 2500 years ago, Athens gave birth to the idea of a city run by free citizens. Every aspect of daily life from defence to waste disposal was controlled not by a king, but by the Athenians themselves. Ultimately, this radical new system would define a way of life and the Athenians would give it a name. They called it "people power" (demo-kratia), or democracy. On our journey, we meet the people who still see ancient Athens as the model for running the great cities of today, including perhaps the ancient capital's greatest champion in our modern one, Boris Johnson.

Every era begins with the human will to move, and History uncovers the great forces that set mankind in motion. It's an epic, premium, global documentary about the greatest migrations of all time, and the repercussions that they have had - culturally, sociologically, and politically. Sparked by the Industrial Revolution, a wave of migrants flood the United States. One-third of the entire population of Norway and Sweden migrate to America, transforming the Pacific Northwest; opened by the transcontinental railroad, Mennonite farmers from Ukraine turn Kansas into the breadbasket of the country; in 1908, more Italians were living in New York City than Rome. Spanning the 1900s through the 1970s, this episode reveals how our ancestors, coming from America's own Southern states, Eastern Europe, Latin America and Asia, change America's cityscapes forever, and directly influence the map of modern America.

Quest for the Lost Maya,
Rec
 
 
In the past decade, researchers working in Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula have made a series of startling discoveries that reveal a gaping hole in our understanding of the Maya. What we thought we knew about the Maya could suddenly turn out to be just half the story. Quest for the Lost Maya follows a team of archaeologists as they uncover evidence of a forgotten Mayan society in the Yucatan. Buried beneath an ancient pyramid deep in the Yucatan jungle, the team discovers an even more ancient royal palace complex. They unearth a massive stone acropolis that rises nearly 30 feet above the jungle floor and is crowned with a ceremonial platform the size of four football fields; it could have held thousands of people. And, nearly 300 feet underground, they discover cryptic cave paintings that may be among the oldest Mayan iconography ever discovered in Mexico.

Stalin - Trotsky: A Battle To Death,
Rec
 
 
Mexico, 20 August 1940. Trotsky was murdered, an ice-pick to the head. With his death came the end of a 20-year duel at the very heart of the Communist movement. Stalin, at the head of the Kremlin, had finally eliminated his long-standing rival. Both leading figures in the Revolution, Stalin and Trotsky stopped at nothing to get their hands on the levers of absolute power. Over three decades, Stalin had lifted Russia to the rank of the world's second-largest superpower. Trotsky, having formed the Red Army and led it to victory against the White Armies, was an equally strategic mind. Stalin versus Trotsky, a duel between two radically different men. One was the son of a Georgian cobbler, the other a Jewish intellectual. One a methodical, calculating man; the other, a brilliant, enthusiastic mind. One a cynical schemer; the other, an idealist. This was an ideological duel between two visions of Communism; a political duel, a duel for power, and above all, a duel to the death. By eliminating Trotsky, Stalin rose to supreme office and cemented his place in history.
