A steady drip of crucial information made its way out of Germany and over to Russia during the course of WWII. It came from the Red Orchestra - a group of people from nations worldwide, united by their faith in communism. The information the spy ring provided was so startlingly accurate that today many people believe there must have been a communist spy in the highest echelons of Nazi government. We follow the stories of Red Orchestra members and attempt to track their super spy.

Verdun, February 21st, 1916. It is here that the most emblematic battle of the First World War will take place. During one of the harshest winters the region has experienced, the German General Staff is preparing to launch an important offensive on the Meuse Valley. Under the orders of General von Falkenhayn, chief of the General Staff of the Imperial armies, the Germans are determined to use the destructive power of their heavy artillery as much as possible to drown the French lines under a rain of fire.What will remain of the French soldiers (poilus) crushed by this rain of shells of all sizes? 'Nothing', hope the German soldiers who will launch themselves across a completely ravaged landscape. And they are completely wrong! In some areas, the lead patrols will cross the first lines without even realizing it. There will be no more first line. Yet, on July 12th, 1916, after more than four months of fierce fighting, General Falkenhayn is obliged to accept the truth: he will never take Verdun! Worse still, by the fall, the French troops will have regained a part of the ground lost at the beginning of the battle, gradually pushing their opponents to their starting positions. After 300 days, 300 nights of fighting and 300,000 dead, fighting decreases on the front of Verdun. What happened in the first few months of this offensive? How can its failure be explained despite the amount of means implemented?

Tony and the team return for a new series, visiting Glendon Hall in Northamptonshire to unravel the mystery of the human skeletons found under an outbuilding. In November 2004, Martin Hipwell was working in the garden converting a Victorian brick shed. He had to stop rather suddenly because as he dug up the old floors he came across a whole host of human skeletons. He contacted the local unit, Northampton Archaeology, who revealed 11 burials inside one of the buildings. They removed seven sets of human remains. But in another barn, the builders discovered yet more remains. They left these undisturbed, and Martin got in touch with the program. Before Martin carried on his building work, he wanted to know who these people were and where they lived. All these burials were aligned east-to-west. They were closely packed, and some had been buried on top of others. The density of the burials, the orientation and the lack of finds and gravestones suggested that these were the graves of medieval Christian peasants. Bone analysis indicates that these people suffered from lives of hard labour and poor nutrition. Could they have been inhabitants of the lost medieval village of Glendon? And what happened to Glendon's church dedicated to St Helen? Could the piles of old architectural stonework in the garden be a clue?

The lifeblood of every nation - trade - becomes more vital than ever during war. Twice in the 20th century, the German Navy nearly defeated Great Britain by throttling her sea-lanes. In both World Wars, submarines proved the deadliest threat. But Germany also used a combination of disguised armed merchant vessels and surface warships of the Kriegsmarine to sink Allied commercial shipping. While U-boats battled under the seas, German surface commerce raiders wreaked havoc on the Allies in WWI and WWII.

Millions remember the countdowns, launchings, splashdowns and parades as the US raced the USSR to the Moon in the 1960s. Few know that both superpowers ran parallel covert space programs to launch military astronauts on spying missions. NOVA delves into the untold story of this top-secret space race, which might easily have turned into a shooting war in orbit. NOVA gains first-time access to a surviving Soviet-manned spy station in a restricted Russian space facility, where an ex-cosmonaut demonstrates the high-powered spy cameras that were trained on US cities. With a cannon designed to destroy hostile satellites or attack American astro-spies, Almaz was probably the only manned spacecraft ever equipped for a potential space war.

The ancient city of Petra, hidden in the barren desert of southern Jordan, has captured the global imagination. Its breath-taking ruins spread over one square mile with temples, a great theatre and hundreds of tombs half built and half sculpted straight from the desert's rocky cliffs. But Petra also holds a mystery that has long puzzled historians: What could have led such a grand and elaborate city to be abandoned? Built by an Arabian desert tribe called the Nabateans 2000 years ago, Petra was a thriving capital city and home to tens of thousands. For most people the region would be uninhabitable - it gets only 4 inches of rain per year- but the Nabateans were geniuses at water management and transformed the desert landscape into an oasis. They then made Petra the bustling hub of a great network of trade routes linking Africa, the Far East and the Mediterranean. But the success didn't last and Petra disappeared from the world stage. Now, after decades of investigation, a team of experts is finally beginning to answer the enduring question of what led the Nabateans to leave their capital city. For many years, scholars have suspected that the cause of Petra's demise was the great earthquake of 363 AD. Ancient records describe it as having destroyed half the city and it was assumed this catastrophic act of nature was the death knell for prosperous Petra. But archaeologists Chris Tuttle and Zbig Fiema have each uncovered incredible new evidence that not only did the Nabateans remain in Petra after the disaster, they embraced Christianity and continued to thrive for at least another 200 years... much longer than experts previously believed. Dr Tom Paradise then shares his theory that Petra's people may have fell victim to a cataclysmic flood. Though the city is at the heart of one of the driest regions on earth, isolated flash floods are not unknown and Paradise has spotted evidence that waves of water up to13 feet in height ravaged the city.

At a time when life across the continent is politically fragmented and chaotic one man has a vision of a European empire on a grand scale - and the charisma, skill and the drive to make it a reality. He will become known to history as Charlemagne, King of the Franks and Emperor of the Romans. Presenter David Adams crosses Europe to show how daring tactics, brilliant leadership and sheer force of numbers make Charlemagne and his army the most feared military power in 8th century Europe. Charlemagne wages over 50 campaigns during a 45-year reign and by 814, he commands a single Christian empire that spans more than a million square kilometres. However, David reveals that the Emperor's son and successor, Louis the Pious, is not the strong warrior king needed to hold the empire together. Eventually Louis' own sons depose him and fight amongst themselves, each seeking a larger share of power and glory. The family feud climaxes in a fierce battle that leaves 40,000 dead and a treaty that divides Europe into three parts. It is the end of Charlemagne's empire and sets the stage for 1,000 years of conflict.

The civilisation of Ancient Egypt was the greatest the world has ever seen, continuing for 3000 years with one religion, one language and one evolving history. Egypt created the world's first empire yet much of what we know about ancient Egyptian culture is pieced together from astonishingly little hard information, and many intriguing mysteries remain. New scientific techniques are now enabling historians to uncover many of these hidden secrets. Behind them lie tales of power and intrigue, love and madness, passion and murder.

Host, Don Wildman, visits a wide variety of museums across the United States, taking viewers on a sometimes shocking tour of America's past by re-examining what's been left behind. Interviews, archival footage and re-enactments bring to life the artefacts' enduring mysteries, some that have never been told before on television.

Millions remember the countdowns, launchings, splashdowns and parades as the US raced the USSR to the Moon in the 1960s. Few know that both superpowers ran parallel covert space programs to launch military astronauts on spying missions. NOVA delves into the untold story of this top-secret space race, which might easily have turned into a shooting war in orbit. NOVA gains first-time access to a surviving Soviet-manned spy station in a restricted Russian space facility, where an ex-cosmonaut demonstrates the high-powered spy cameras that were trained on US cities. With a cannon designed to destroy hostile satellites or attack American astro-spies, Almaz was probably the only manned spacecraft ever equipped for a potential space war.

Born in 1832 the story of the Black Widow is a tale of classic Victorian murder. Cotton travelled around the north east of England marrying lonely men getting them to take out life insurance and then murdering them. Arsenic was her preferred means of killing. Once dead she would cash in their life insurance. It was not only her husbands who were the victims, she is also thought to have murdered 11 of her children/step children too. Thanks to the endeavour of a man called Thomas Riley, Mary Ann Cotton was finally brought to justice and hanged for the murder of her final victim, 10-year-old Charles Edward Cotton. After her execution it was suspected that she was also responsible for the murders of a further 21 people. More Info >

At a time when life across the continent is politically fragmented and chaotic one man has a vision of a European empire on a grand scale - and the charisma, skill and the drive to make it a reality. He will become known to history as Charlemagne, King of the Franks and Emperor of the Romans. Presenter David Adams crosses Europe to show how daring tactics, brilliant leadership and sheer force of numbers make Charlemagne and his army the most feared military power in 8th century Europe. Charlemagne wages over 50 campaigns during a 45-year reign and by 814, he commands a single Christian empire that spans more than a million square kilometres. However, David reveals that the Emperor's son and successor, Louis the Pious, is not the strong warrior king needed to hold the empire together. Eventually Louis' own sons depose him and fight amongst themselves, each seeking a larger share of power and glory. The family feud climaxes in a fierce battle that leaves 40,000 dead and a treaty that divides Europe into three parts. It is the end of Charlemagne's empire and sets the stage for 1,000 years of conflict.

Dan Snow presents this immersive series, which brings these cities' stinking histories vividly to life. Taking the travelogue in a whole new direction - with extraordinary, hands-on demos and stunts - it excavates the murky past in gruesome detail during defining periods in history. You'll find out how each of these modern capitals was forged in the muck of the past, emerging from 'filthy cities' into three of the world's model metropolises.

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. Across the globe, over 1.5 billion people believe in reincarnation: the belief that a soul can be reborn into a different body after death. Major universities worldwide have departments devoted to the study of reincarnation and, according to their research, there is a mounting body of evidence that suggests some people have the ability to vividly recall past lives. Ancient astronaut theorists suggest that not only does reincarnation exist, but our extraterrestrial ancestors specifically designed the human body to be a vessel for otherworldly entities. World leaders, like the Dalai Lama and even Saddam Hussein, claim to be the reincarnations of powerful figures from the past: figures with an extraterrestrial connection. If souls are indeed recycling through various embodiments, is this simply the natural continuation of life - or might this process be directed towards some greater end? One that reaches far beyond Earth?

But instead of agreeing to Octavian's price money and territory - Mark Antony flatly turns him down, pointing towards an inevitable conflict between the two former allies and, perhaps, Vorenus and Pullo. As a last resort, Octavian sends Atia and Octavia to Alexandria, knowing their reception will most likely be a chilly one.

The ancient city of Petra, hidden in the barren desert of southern Jordan, has captured the global imagination. Its breath-taking ruins spread over one square mile with temples, a great theatre and hundreds of tombs half built and half sculpted straight from the desert's rocky cliffs. But Petra also holds a mystery that has long puzzled historians: What could have led such a grand and elaborate city to be abandoned? Built by an Arabian desert tribe called the Nabateans 2000 years ago, Petra was a thriving capital city and home to tens of thousands. For most people the region would be uninhabitable - it gets only 4 inches of rain per year- but the Nabateans were geniuses at water management and transformed the desert landscape into an oasis. They then made Petra the bustling hub of a great network of trade routes linking Africa, the Far East and the Mediterranean. But the success didn't last and Petra disappeared from the world stage. Now, after decades of investigation, a team of experts is finally beginning to answer the enduring question of what led the Nabateans to leave their capital city. For many years, scholars have suspected that the cause of Petra's demise was the great earthquake of 363 AD. Ancient records describe it as having destroyed half the city and it was assumed this catastrophic act of nature was the death knell for prosperous Petra. But archaeologists Chris Tuttle and Zbig Fiema have each uncovered incredible new evidence that not only did the Nabateans remain in Petra after the disaster, they embraced Christianity and continued to thrive for at least another 200 years... much longer than experts previously believed. Dr Tom Paradise then shares his theory that Petra's people may have fell victim to a cataclysmic flood. Though the city is at the heart of one of the driest regions on earth, isolated flash floods are not unknown and Paradise has spotted evidence that waves of water up to13 feet in height ravaged the city.

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 >

The Royal Garrison Church is all that remains of the Domus Dei, the medieval pilgrim hospital that once stood on the site of Governors Green in Portsmouth. Probably built in 1212, it was well placed to receive poor travellers en route to overseas pilgrimage sites, and also those arriving on the south coast to visit popular shrines in England. The hospital survived until the Reformation, when it was used as an ammunitions store and then in the time of Elizabeth I, it was transformed into a home for the Governor of Portsmouth. A limited excavation was carried out on the site in 1972 and the team now has the opportunity to investigate and search for the medieval origins of Portsmouth's hospital for poor pilgrims.

At a time when life across the continent is politically fragmented and chaotic one man has a vision of a European empire on a grand scale - and the charisma, skill and the drive to make it a reality. He will become known to history as Charlemagne, King of the Franks and Emperor of the Romans. Presenter David Adams crosses Europe to show how daring tactics, brilliant leadership and sheer force of numbers make Charlemagne and his army the most feared military power in 8th century Europe. Charlemagne wages over 50 campaigns during a 45-year reign and by 814, he commands a single Christian empire that spans more than a million square kilometres. However, David reveals that the Emperor's son and successor, Louis the Pious, is not the strong warrior king needed to hold the empire together. Eventually Louis' own sons depose him and fight amongst themselves, each seeking a larger share of power and glory. The family feud climaxes in a fierce battle that leaves 40,000 dead and a treaty that divides Europe into three parts. It is the end of Charlemagne's empire and sets the stage for 1,000 years of conflict.

End Of Empire: Rise & Fall of Dynasties, Charlemagne: The Father Of Europe (S1, EP4)
Rec
 
 
At a time when life across the continent is politically fragmented and chaotic one man has a vision of a European empire on a grand scale - and the charisma, skill and the drive to make it a reality. He will become known to history as Charlemagne, King of the Franks and Emperor of the Romans. Presenter David Adams crosses Europe to show how daring tactics, brilliant leadership and sheer force of numbers make Charlemagne and his army the most feared military power in 8th century Europe. Charlemagne wages over 50 campaigns during a 45-year reign and by 814, he commands a single Christian empire that spans more than a million square kilometres. However, David reveals that the Emperor's son and successor, Louis the Pious, is not the strong warrior king needed to hold the empire together. Eventually Louis' own sons depose him and fight amongst themselves, each seeking a larger share of power and glory. The family feud climaxes in a fierce battle that leaves 40,000 dead and a treaty that divides Europe into three parts. It is the end of Charlemagne's empire and sets the stage for 1,000 years of conflict.

However, their hotel room was bugged, and the royal phone tapped by secret servicemen who were recording their every word. But on this occasion, the spooks were not British... they were acting on the orders of none other than the US president himself... And in July 1940, as the first German bombs fell on England, and Edward and Wallis arrived in Lisbon, they thought they were safe from the ravages of war torn Europe. But secretly watching their every move was a spymaster, covertly dispatched by London to record Wallis and Edward's every move. His chilling report contained a shocking allegation about the couple.

Tutte's code-breaking skill, and the engineering genius of Flowers, gave rise to Colossus, the world's first programmable computer. Tutte is revealed as having been responsible for what experts have described as the single most important intellectual feat of World War Two - without this work, D Day would never have happened. Tutte broke a code ten times tougher than Enigma and, with a handful of brilliant men, allowed Churchill to "hack in" to Hitler's own hotline, win the War and usher in the age of computers. Tutte's breathtaking genius was exploited by an amazing array of talent at Bletchley Park (the UK's top secret intelligence base) who then broke into Hitler's own communications network, changing the War and the world.

Presenter Jules Hudson takes an exuberant look at the airfields of Great Britain. In each episode, Jules will journey to a British airfield and uncover the stories of its past by talking to aviation experts and people that have worked on the base. Jules also fearlessly takes to the skies to perform some daredevil manoeuvres of his own - with a little help from the professionals. Packed with incredible archives, authentic reconstruction, and fascinating characters this program is the ultimate look at the airfields that helped lead Britain to victory. This isn't a stuffy doc, this is an unashamedly enthusiastic jaunt across the history of our most interesting military airfields. On his journey, Jules meets real aviation enthusiasts and people with first-hand experience of working out of the base. Stories of wartime activities, spectacular aviation inventions, military battles and daring comradeship drive the narrative of every episode, resulting in a compelling account of the integral part these airfields played in our military history. In this series, we see Jules parachute RAF style, learn to fly with the Red Arrows, attend Glider Training School, go up in an early hot air balloon, and discover the inner workings of a Lancaster Bomber.

During WWII, one and two-man crews aboard dangerous and stealthy mini-weapons could threaten the largest battleships at anchor. We examine Italian human torpedoes - torpedoes outfitted with controls and a seat for their drivers - that crippled the British fleet at Alexandria and Gibraltar; to Japanese mini-subs that unsuccessfully struck at Pearl Harbor; and British mini-subs that attacked the German battleship Tirpitz.

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

His speeches leave Italy bewitched. But behind all Benito Mussolini's bluster and posturing lies a dark heart of violence and brutality. This is the story of Il Duce, the Boss, and how a young socialist bully rises and transforms to become an icon of fascism. He beats and rapes women, ruthlessly drops mustard gas on Libya and Ethiopia, becomes enthralled by Adolf Hitler and his ideas and drags his country into a war they are hopelessly unprepared for and becomes complicit in the Holocaust.

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.
