Is Ancient Greek art just a collection of elegant works of marble, framed by a love of democracy and enlightened reasoning? Far from it. Art critic and journalist Alastair Sooke demonstrates it is in fact far more diverse and surprising - a multi-cultural mix of styles, techniques and materials that left no subject matter unexplored. Filmed in sumptuous locations around the Mediterranean and across Europe, Alastair shows how a limited view of Ancient Greek art just does not hold up. His journey takes him from the bucolic beauty of early Minoan and Mycenaean art to striking works full of eroticism and drunken hedonism and culminates in some of the most breathtakingly exquisite art the world has ever seen. Considered, thoughtful and enthralling, this series offers a fresh understanding and new perspective on an incredible period of art.

Rob explores the construction of the world's first underground railway - the Metropolitan. The Metropolitan Line travels 68km from villages of Buckinghamshire into the heart of the city. The Tube map's purple line takes 70 million passengers every year through London. But what few realise is they are travelling through hand-built brick tunnels constructed 150 years ago, at the time of Charles Dickens and Queen Victoria. An underground railway was considered an impossible idea back in the 1850s, but Victorian London was so overcrowded that there was no other option. In January 1863, the first-ever underground train travelled between Paddington and a new terminus at Farringdon, at that time a slum district. Demolishing homes there, some said, was a socially desirable proposition. A revolution in transport had begun.

Uncovering a unique battle story. Messines is among World War One's most iconic and dramatic battlefields; now for the first time in almost a century, the secrets long buried under its scarred fields have been rediscovered. Between 1914 and 1918, the Allies and the Germans fought for control of Messines - taking, losing, and re-taking this strategic high ridge. The fighting culminated in the Battle of Messines - the setting for what is still the world's deadliest non-nuclear explosion, in which 600 tons of explosives took the lives of 10,000 men. Archaeologists have opened up a vast, almost 2.5km trench straight through the battlefield on a scale of military excavation that comes up only once in a decade. Unearthing the fighting trenches, unexploded bombs and grenades and even the bodies of the men and horses who fought and died there, this extraordinary dig reveals a first-hand insight into this pivotal battle of World War I.

In the collection of the Chicago Maritime Museum is a life jacket from the SS Eastland. In 1915, the steamship suddenly capsizes in the Chicago River, killing hundreds. But during the catastrophe, the Eastland is still tied to the dock. What causes this deadly disaster? Four stone slabs carved with cryptic symbols are on display at the Superstition Mountain Museum in Apache Junction, AZ. Some believe the markings are actually a map that leads to a legendary gold mine in the rugged mountains of Arizona. Are these stones really a treasure map? An old axe, in the collection of New Hampshire's Portsmouth Athenaeum, is used in the commission of a brutal double murder on a desolate island. Who wielded this deadly weapon? And why?

This spectacular episode explores the extraordinary powers and civilisations that have emerged from central Asia. First the Seljuk Turks took on the Byzantines, pushing their way into Anatolia. In a cave in Cappadocia we discover a long lost painting that reveals how the two cultures co-existed. Then we follow the Mongol invasions - in Bukhara we explore its destruction and in Esfahan, Iran, we see how the Mongols eventually converted to Islam and began to settle. Then in Uzbekistan again, the film traces the rise of Timur and explores the glories of Samarkand. Finally the program follows the successors of Timur as they spread south into India, creating the wonders of the Mughal Empire. The film ends at the Taj Mahal. For the first time, the story of the birth and flourishing of civilization in the Near and Middle East and it's huge influence on the West. Much of what happened in the West was only on the margins of the real engine room of artistic, religious and social evolution. For crucial phases in world history the key place was the Middle East - an extraordinary region that for millennia has been a political, economic and cultural centre of the world and a bridge between the continents of Asia, Africa and Europe. For the foundation of science, justice, monotheism, commerce, civil rights and artistic expression - look Eastward. This is a complex truth; it encompasses vast Empires, reveals amassed libraries of manuscripts, assesses the Conquests period, the Ottomans and the Renaissance, travels the Silk Route, and covers three continents. From the ancient to the modern world, this series will be an epic journey of discovery, following a river flowing from the East to the West.

Eight Days That Made Rome, The Colosseum's Grand Opening (S1, EP7)
Rec
 
 
Bettany Hughes relives opening day at Rome's Colosseum in 80 AD - the first day of the inaugural games held by Emperor Titus. With the empire near the height of its power, it was a celebration of the completion of this huge and lavish arena, a giant new landmark for the world's greatest city, where the people could revel in the bloodthirsty entertainments for which they are so famous. It was a naked bribe to the people of Rome - Titus was banking on his spectacular opening day winning over the plebs and securing his place on the imperial throne. And for a modern audience, it's a brilliant way to explore the attitudes and beliefs that made the Romans tick. The Colosseum, brainchild of Titus's father Emperor Vespasian, was built on top of the old boating lake of Nero's Domus Aurea, or Golden House - a none-too subtle point that Nero's self-indulgence had been replaced by a new dynasty that put the people first. But Vespasian died before the Colosseum was completed, and the early reign of his son Titus was rocked by evil omens - making the success of its opening day more important than ever. It proved to be one of the most extravagant day of games in Rome's history, with bloodletting on an epic scale - exotic beasts brought from far off lands to be butchered; criminals executed in horrifying acts of snuff-theatre; and the biggest draw of all, the gladiator fights. The contest that day between two champions, Verus and Priscus, would be immortalised for a very unexpected reason. But why did Romans - cultured and civilised in so many ways - love to see so much blood? Bettany tackles this question head on, traveling across the Roman world to discover how the ritualised violence of the games played a crucial role in affirming the Romans' sense of who they were, and what they had achieved.

The Empire saw the growth of a particular type of British hero: adventurer, gentleman, sportsman. The gospel of sport spread through the Empire's public schools, laying the foundations for almost all the major sports of today. This series uncovers a world of incredible contradictions, including piracy, war, slavery, sex, railways, medicine, rebellion and religion. This major five-part series tells the story of the British Empire in a new way, tracing not only the rise and fall of the Empire but also the complex effects of the empire on the modern world - political, technological and social - and on Britain.

The extraordinary tale of some of the people, places and events that shaped Canada - stories of change makers and rule breakers, dreamers and visionaries, scientists and entrepreneurs who forged a nation in a vast and harsh land. With ground-breaking CGI and a cast of celebrity interviews that take us inside Canada's biggest stories, this series is truly a celebration of a nation that has transformed its differences into understanding and created an identity that is uniquely diverse. In this episode, the war of 1812 is Canada's War of Independence. As America nips at Canada's borders, unlikely alliances form to protect them. With the British Empire entrenched in a European war, a disparate group of Indigenous, French Canadian, Scottish, African Canadian and even ex-pat American fighters join together to fight for their new homeland.

But how did something so ordinary become a tool of deception? The LaPorte County Historical Society Museum in Indiana is home to an antique wheelbarrow. This battered piece of farm equipment wasn't used to work the land - but to carry out a gruesome crime spree. What grisly secret does it hold? The monstrous head preserved at the Scripts Institution of Oceanography in San Diego once belonged to an enormous creature. But can it really prove the existence of a legendary monster of the deep?

Bettany Hughes relives opening day at Rome's Colosseum in 80 AD - the first day of the inaugural games held by Emperor Titus. With the empire near the height of its power, it was a celebration of the completion of this huge and lavish arena, a giant new landmark for the world's greatest city, where the people could revel in the bloodthirsty entertainments for which they are so famous. It was a naked bribe to the people of Rome - Titus was banking on his spectacular opening day winning over the plebs and securing his place on the imperial throne. And for a modern audience, it's a brilliant way to explore the attitudes and beliefs that made the Romans tick. The Colosseum, brainchild of Titus's father Emperor Vespasian, was built on top of the old boating lake of Nero's Domus Aurea, or Golden House - a none-too subtle point that Nero's self-indulgence had been replaced by a new dynasty that put the people first. But Vespasian died before the Colosseum was completed, and the early reign of his son Titus was rocked by evil omens - making the success of its opening day more important than ever. It proved to be one of the most extravagant day of games in Rome's history, with bloodletting on an epic scale - exotic beasts brought from far off lands to be butchered; criminals executed in horrifying acts of snuff-theatre; and the biggest draw of all, the gladiator fights. The contest that day between two champions, Verus and Priscus, would be immortalised for a very unexpected reason. But why did Romans - cultured and civilised in so many ways - love to see so much blood? Bettany tackles this question head on, traveling across the Roman world to discover how the ritualised violence of the games played a crucial role in affirming the Romans' sense of who they were, and what they had achieved.

The Germans, ignoring international treaties they signed, were first to weaponise a chemical. In this case it was chlorine - a highly toxic ingredient used in the manufacture of chemical dyes of which they had a huge supply. Their action unleashed an escalation of poison gas weapons as both sides developed different chemicals and more effective counter measures. Their use culminated in a bold British plan that unfolded beneath the battlefield at Messine Ridge. British mining and explosive experts planted 450 tons of high explosive hidden in a network of tunnels under Messine Ridge. When ignited, they created the biggest land mine in history - killing 10,000 German soldiers. The explosion rattled windows at 10 Downing St 225km away and registered as an earthquake in Switzerland.

We lift the lid on some of history's great mysteries by tunnelling deeper, travelling wider, looking more closely, asking harder questions and searching for evidence with more determination than ever before. We are taken to places far and wide and will encounter conspiracy theories, cover-ups, strange phenomena, unexplained happenings and mysterious findings - in short, a whole host of unusual goings on that have had a massive bearing on how we view history. Largely a figure of fun to his enemies (and to Hitler), there was nothing funny about the dreadful Benito Mussolini to those who came under his yoke. The once all-powerful friend of the Fuhrer ended his days hanging upside down like a grotesque animal carcass in Milan's Piazzale Loreto. Mystery, intrigue and controversy still surrounds who and how Mussolini was killed, and a story given life by conflicting accounts, false claims, numbers that don't add up and dodgy eye-witness reports.

Chris travels from Cape Town in South Africa across Botswana to the Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, following the route of a mind-bogglingly ambitious railway pioneered by controversial 19th-century British colonialist, Cecil Rhodes. Rhodes made a fortune from diamonds and used it to fund his railway and extend British rule across Africa, laying the foundations for apartheid in the process. Chris wants to discover if this railway, built to further the interests of a white minority, is still relevant to the people of these countries today. Chris starts his trip in 'extreme luxury' on the Blue Train, a five-star hotel on wheels that takes him from Cape Town to the diamond-mining town of Kimberley. On board he meets Nicole Biondi, who describes what it was like to grow up under apartheid in South Africa. Reluctantly hopping off the Blue Train at 3am, Chris explores the 'Big Hole' diamond mine where Rhodes made his fortune and planned his epic railway that would stretch from Cape Town to Cairo. The next stretch of the railway takes Chris across the border into Botswana, where he catches a freight train to the thriving capital of Gaborone. Botswana became independent from British rule 50 years ago and a year later the country discovered massive diamond reserves which have made it one of the most prosperous countries in Africa. Some of the money has been invested in a brand-new sleeper train which takes Chris towards the border with Zimbabwe. Chris nervously crosses into Robert Mugabe's Zimbabwe, a country in political and economic turmoil that was once known as Southern Rhodesia, after Cecil Rhodes. After visiting Rhodes's stunning gravesite in the Matapos Hills, Chris catches his third and final overnight train up to the Victoria Falls, on board a rickety carriage from the 1950s. On the final morning, he ends his journey on Rhodes' swan song - an amazing rail bridge overlooking the Victoria Falls.

Rec
 
 
For the final episode of the series, Bettany Hughes looks at the day which marked Rome's symbolic break with its thousand-year pagan past - the day in 337 AD that Emperor Constantine the Great was baptised a Christian. It was a moment of profound significance not just for the empire, but for the history of the world and one of its major religions: Christ's message was revolutionary, and now had the vast force of the Roman Empire to disseminate it across the world. Constantine was one of the last great Roman emperors to rule over a united empire, and gave it a new imperial capital - Constantinople, today known as Istanbul - a city which would one day eclipse Rome as the greatest city on earth. Bettany travels to both the old and the 'New Rome', as Constantinople was known, to explore the complex and contradictory life of this brilliant emperor, who was born the illegitimate son of a barmaid and rose to power after more than a century of steady Roman decline. His triumph over a rival Roman emperor at the Battle of Milvian Bridge was famously attributed to divine intervention - but Bettany sees evidence of a more human story of power politics and spin. In Rome, she visits a unique and stunning relic of this turbulent age - the imperial insignia of Constantine's defeated rival, Maxentius. Bettany presents evidence of a tightly-knit imperial family torn apart by a secret tragedy, and an emperor whose idea of Christianity would seem completely alien to believers today. Bettany shows how many of his greatest monuments combine Christian and pagan imagery - almost certainly reflecting the emperor's own religious outlook. She also gets to explore recently discovered traces of Constantine's original palace at his new capital, its entrance now hidden below the shops and cafes of modern Istanbul. More Info >

Lucy Worsley travels in the footsteps of the Romanovs, the all-powerful dynasty who ruled Russia for more than three centuries. And she introduces us to a roll call of extraordinary characters: Peter the Great, the visionary who transformed a country into an empire; Catherine the Great, the minor princess from Germany who became the mightiest woman in the world. And the last tsar, Nicholas II, the loving father and husband who provoked a revolution. This is the story of a glittering family, whose spectacular palaces hide stories of betrayal, scandal, and murder. In the first episode, Lucy will investigate the beginning of the Romanovs' three hundred year reign in Russia. In 1613, when Russia was leaderless, sixteen year old Mikhail Romanov was plucked from obscurity and offered the crown of Russia. Mikhail was granted absolute power and began the reign of the Romanovs as the most influential dynasty in modern European history.

At age 40, California attorney Jeff Mudgett is stunned to learn a gruesome family secret; his great-great-grandfather was Herman H Mudgett, aka Dr HH Holmes, the man considered to be America's first serial killer. Holmes' audacious acts of mass murder have become that of legend, inspiring hundreds of books and even a motion picture by Martin Scorsese entitled The Devil in the White City, starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Obsessed with learning more, Jeff follows a bloody trail of hidden clues and historical facts which will hopefully strengthen his case and prove his theory that Holmes had travelled to England to commit the Jack the Ripper murders. We start on the night Jeff's grandfather revealed the family's dark secret, which then sparked an extraordinary investigation guiding Jeff to infamous sites all around the United States, including the tunnels under a Chicago post office that now stands where Holmes's 'murder castle' once operated. Jeff will team up with a top-notch crime detective who will help link these two sinister historical characters together by connecting century-old clues with modern day methods of investigation. We watch the grisly story of HH Holmes and his 1000 targets unfold through disturbing, detailed re-creations that are combined with first-person, doc-style storytelling, leading us all the way to England and back. Jeff is on the hunt to provide solid, never-before-seen evidence that Holmes was, in fact, Jack the Ripper. In an attempt to finally shut the case on the greatest crime mystery in modern history, the remains of HH Holmes will be exhumed and subjected to a battery of tests to prove that he and The Ripper were truly one and the same. This episode, a trove of mysterious artefacts contain an unexpected link to the UK. Investigating Holmes' capture and final days on the run, Jeff and Amaryllis uncover evidence of the Holmes curse and the shocking theory that the killer escaped his own death. More Info >

A mysterious rock bearing a cryptic design was discovered in Roswell, New Mexico in 2004. Now coined 'The Roswell Rock', this piece of stone is unusually smooth and possesses unique magnetic properties. Even more intriguing is that the motif on the rock-a sequence of triangles and crescents-is an exact match to a crop circle found in England nearly two decades ago. Ancient Astronaut Theorist Giorgio Tsoukalos sets out to determine the origin of this intriguing stone. Through a series of experiments Tsoukalos unveils whether The Roswell Rock is merely a man-made fabrication or something much more. How could the precise design have been created without leaving evidence of altering the stone? Why does this small rock react to magnets? And most baffling of all-why does the design match a crop circle that appeared more than 4,000 miles away from the Nevada desert?

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 >

Chris travels from Cape Town in South Africa across Botswana to the Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, following the route of a mind-bogglingly ambitious railway pioneered by controversial 19th-century British colonialist, Cecil Rhodes. Rhodes made a fortune from diamonds and used it to fund his railway and extend British rule across Africa, laying the foundations for apartheid in the process. Chris wants to discover if this railway, built to further the interests of a white minority, is still relevant to the people of these countries today. Chris starts his trip in 'extreme luxury' on the Blue Train, a five-star hotel on wheels that takes him from Cape Town to the diamond-mining town of Kimberley. On board he meets Nicole Biondi, who describes what it was like to grow up under apartheid in South Africa. Reluctantly hopping off the Blue Train at 3am, Chris explores the 'Big Hole' diamond mine where Rhodes made his fortune and planned his epic railway that would stretch from Cape Town to Cairo. The next stretch of the railway takes Chris across the border into Botswana, where he catches a freight train to the thriving capital of Gaborone.

Amazing setting, amazing story - the story of the slaughter of hundreds of Cathars in the 13th century. In 1242, a military command of about 10,000 troops moved against the castle at Montsegur which was held by about 100 fighters and which was home to more than 200 pacifists. The siege lasted nine months until, in March 1244, the castle finally surrendered. The aftermath was grim - some 220 Cathars were burned alive on a huge bonfire at the foot of the castle for refusing to renounce their faith. Tim and the team travel to France to search for archaeological clues to try to discover what really happened in those last terrifying days of the siege.

Ancient Aliens: The Ultimate Evidence, Alien Messages (S1, EP6)
Rec
 
 
Giorgio Tsoukalos decodes some of the most compelling evidence of ancient astronaut theory found in mysterious carvings, symbols, and structures that are strikingly similar on opposite ends of the Earth. Egyptian pyramids aligned with the stars of Orion's Belt match up perfectly with pyramidal structures in Central Mexico. A sacred symbol common to India appears carved into the desert floor of Peru. And a modern-day crop circle in England is an identical match for a design carved on a stone found just outside Roswell, New Mexico. Is this mere coincidence? Or could the answers to humankind's greatest questions about our origins and our future actually be hidden in plain sight, disguised in the form of alien messages?

We think of weapons of mass destruction as a modern concept, but the ancients also created fearsome weapons of their own, some even more destructive than we can create today. Centuries before the widespread discovery of gunpowder, one ancient genius managed to build a cannon that could fire a projectile using the power of steam! We reveal an ancient troop ship mightier than an aircraft carrier, and death rays that could burn enemy ships. How were the ancients capable of creating seemingly impossible warfare technologies thousands of years before modern times?

Amazing setting, amazing story - the story of the slaughter of hundreds of Cathars in the 13th century. In 1242, a military command of about 10,000 troops moved against the castle at Montsegur which was held by about 100 fighters and which was home to more than 200 pacifists. The siege lasted nine months until, in March 1244, the castle finally surrendered. The aftermath was grim - some 220 Cathars were burned alive on a huge bonfire at the foot of the castle for refusing to renounce their faith. Tim and the team travel to France to search for archaeological clues to try to discover what really happened in those last terrifying days of the siege.

The story of how Belzoni made some of his greatest discoveries - including the tomb of Seti I (the most beautiful in the Valley of the Kings) and the hidden entrance to the mysterious sand-covered temple of Ramesses at Abu Simbel. It was a time of adventure, Arabian nights and the golden age of the Empire. Giovanni Belzoni had made his mark by recovering for the British Museum, a magnificent granite bust of a pharaoh from a remote temple near Thebes in central Egypt. Unknown to Belzoni, it was a bust of the perhaps the greatest pharaoh, Ramesses II. Now, Belzoni wants to become an explorer, to boldly go to parts of this magical land never visited by Europeans and uncover lost treasures of the mysterious ancient culture that have remained unseen for centuries. But he is not alone. The French, led by his main rival Drovetti, are keen to sew up the antiquities business in Egypt - a business that is becoming ever more lucrative as Europeans clamour to own a piece of this ancient Empire. Belzoni-s ambition is to return to the deep south of Egypt and uncover the temple at Abu Simbel.

The Civil War, one of the most defining moments in American history, tore a nation apart, pitting North against South - brother against brother. Over the course of four years, more than 750,000 military and civilian lives were sacrificed to make the United States a more perfect union, where the human rights of every person are guaranteed. With unprecedented access to government and private archives and using state-of-the-art technology, over 500 rare and compelling black and white photographs have been painstakingly colourised to illustrate the story of the Civil War in breathtaking detail. This episode examines the cultural and political tensions that ultimately explode into the most storied and bloodied war ever to be fought on US soil.

Elizabeth I And Her Enemies, Death Of A Dynasty (S1, EP3)
Rec
 
 
She may have been the greatest monarch that ever ruled England, but from her very first breath to the day she died, Elizabeth was surrounded by enemies who threatened her crown and her life. A year after the execution of Mary Queen of Scots, Elizabeth faced the Spanish Armada who set sail for England by Philip of Spain. Once Elizabeth's brother-in-law and suitor, now intent on destroying her and taking England as his own. At Tilbury, Elizabeth rallied her troops with a speech that has gone down in history, and the Armada was repelled. But there was one enemy Elizabeth was powerless to defy: old age. Nearing 60, Elizabeth faced her final foe: the dashing Earl of Essex. Winning her favour with his flattery, he became a highly prized courtier - but after a catastrophic falling out, he turned on Elizabeth and led a rebellion against her. Her revenge was swift and merciless, executing him as a message to the kingdom that she was as strong as ever. But that wasn't quite true. A lifetime of fighting to keep her crown finally took its toll, and in 1603, having quashed every enemy that came her way, Queen Elizabeth I peacefully passed away. With her death, the Tudor line came to an end.
