In Search Of Aliens, The Hunt For Atlantis (S1, EP2)
 
 
Ever since Plato first wrote about the mysterious island of Atlantis, it has captured the imagination of adventurers and academics alike. Was Atlantis merely a myth, or could it have actually existed in the remote past? Did Atlantis just disappear as Plato described? And could it have been the home of an advanced civilisation that created the human race? Ancient astronaut theorist Giorgio A Tsoukalos explores the most recent discoveries related to the centuries-old story of Atlantis. By investigating a series of clues, Tsoukalos endeavors to narrow down the possible location of Atlantis. Could evidence be found in a strange egg-shaped stone in Portugal? What secrets can be uncovered on the island of Santorini, Greece? Could Atlantis have been an empire with a network that stretched around the world? Or was it something else entirely? Something which, perhaps came from the stars?

This is the story of how the attack at Pearl Harbor changed the course of history, shaped how America would engage with war for the next 75 years and made heroes of ordinary men. On the morning of December 7, 1941, Britain was battered, bruised and under-supported in the battle against Germany. In less than two hours, the Pearl Harbor attack pulled the US into war. Britain was saved, as Churchill later wrote: "Being saturated and satiated with emotion and sensation, I went to bed and slept the sleep of the saved and thankful." The attack thrust the United States into WWII, but it is also remembered for the many scenes of heroism and self-sacrifice that played out as sailors, airmen and civilians, without waiting for orders, stepped up and fought back. Brave men who showed immense courage in the face of grave danger and made their countrymen proud. From rescuing others, to returning Japanese fire, these men went above and beyond the call of duty and saved many lives. Men such as John Charles England, Doris Miller, Philip Rasmussen, Julio De Castro and Donald Kirby Ross. Now, we tell of these heroes' dramatic unknown stories through visceral, intimate, fast-action, micro-drama, unseen archive footage and interviews.

Hampton Court Palace has history coursing through the brickwork. Famous for being the home of King Henry VIII, the magnificent rooms have played host to some of the most celebrated royals in England. Decisions that were made here changed the course of British history. Hampton Court was the brainchild of the Archbishop of York, Thomas Wolsey. Starting out life as a Tudor palace in 1515, it was updated by Sir Christopher Wren for joint monarchs, William and Mary in 1689 to a Baroque design. The two styles combine to create a truly unique royal residence. Within the grounds of the palace is the oldest hedge planted maze in the world, which takes, on average, 20 minutes to navigate to the centre. More Info >

In 2013, Pope Benedict XVI's resignation shocks the world. In the 2,000-year history of the papacy, only four men have ever stepped down. And in times when more than one living man has laid claim to the thrown of St. Peter, chaos ensues. In this episode, we will examine the nature of the pope's power, his claim to the legacy of St. Peter, and the challenge of balancing spiritual and worldly interests as papal authority has grown. The resignation of a modern pope and peaceful transfer of power has shown the world what the position means today and how it has evolved in an ever-changing world.

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.

Winter 1944-1945: In Europe, the Allies are totally unprepared for Hitler's massive counterattack in the Ardennes forest of Belgium and Luxemburg. It is the biggest battle of the war on the Western Front, fought during the coldest winter in memory. But by the time the Battle of the Bulge is over, Hitler's enormous gamble has ended in disaster, and the Russians are getting closer to Berlin every day. Meanwhile, in the Santo Tomas Camp in the Philippines, thousands of internees are now starving, desperately trying to hold on to life long enough to be liberated. This series, directed and produced by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, tells the story of the World War II 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'.

In 1944 America and Britain in the west and Russia in the east began to close their pincer around Germany. But even now, the outcome was in the balance. The film explores the Allied disaster at Arnhem and the tragedy of the Warsaw uprising, when Polish freedom fighters were abandoned to their fate by Stalin. It tells the shocking story of the liberation of the death camps, when the full extent of the Holocaust became clear for the first time. The film ends with Hitler's last great gamble, as he threw all his last reserves against the oncoming Allied forces in the Ardennes. 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.

In this episode, we explore the changing role of the Windsors' relationship to the Commonwealth and the political upheaval in the world during the 60s and 70s. Former colonies move to independence, often bringing violence. Tours to these parts of the world are under threat and the British and other former colonial powers struggle to come to terms with a new world order and diminished power.

Pope: The Most Powerful Man In History, The Resignation Of Benedict XVI (S1, EP2)
Rec
 
 
In 2013, Pope Benedict XVI's resignation shocks the world. In the 2,000-year history of the papacy, only four men have ever stepped down. And in times when more than one living man has laid claim to the thrown of St. Peter, chaos ensues. In this episode, we will examine the nature of the pope's power, his claim to the legacy of St. Peter, and the challenge of balancing spiritual and worldly interests as papal authority has grown. The resignation of a modern pope and peaceful transfer of power has shown the world what the position means today and how it has evolved in an ever-changing world.

The story of the most produced, most used and most important US tank of World War II. Nearly 50,000 of these superb fighting vehicles were built during the war and every allied army used the Sherman in a variety of roles in every theatre of combat throughout the world. Although it was inferior to the best German tanks in armament and protection, in reliability, serviceability and cost effectiveness, it was unmatched.

Winter 1944-1945: In Europe, the Allies are totally unprepared for Hitler's massive counterattack in the Ardennes forest of Belgium and Luxemburg. It is the biggest battle of the war on the Western Front, fought during the coldest winter in memory. But by the time the Battle of the Bulge is over, Hitler's enormous gamble has ended in disaster, and the Russians are getting closer to Berlin every day. Meanwhile, in the Santo Tomas Camp in the Philippines, thousands of internees are now starving, desperately trying to hold on to life long enough to be liberated. This series, directed and produced by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, tells the story of the World War II 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'.

In 1944 America and Britain in the west and Russia in the east began to close their pincer around Germany. But even now, the outcome was in the balance. The film explores the Allied disaster at Arnhem and the tragedy of the Warsaw uprising, when Polish freedom fighters were abandoned to their fate by Stalin. It tells the shocking story of the liberation of the death camps, when the full extent of the Holocaust became clear for the first time. The film ends with Hitler's last great gamble, as he threw all his last reserves against the oncoming Allied forces in the Ardennes. 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.

It's easy to imagine that the past was lived in black and white, but of course it wasn't. This landmark series uses modern colouration techniques to present a history of America in colour, for the first time. Decade by decade, this ambitious series puts the colour back in history, and brings the history back to life. From jazz-age speakeasies to the attack on Pearl Harbor, from the Great Depression to Elvismania, iconic images of America are vibrantly brought to the screen. To make this landmark series, filmmakers spent 6000 hours painstakingly scouring obscure archives, dusting off forgotten family vaults, and tracking down dedicated private collectors to find the 43km of film they needed - much of it not seen for nearly a century. The result is a feast for the eyes, and brings a fresh excitement to the seminal images of our time. More Info >

On May 25, 1961, President John F Kennedy of the United States of America committed the resources of his nation and launched Project Apollo - the greatest technological undertaking in the history of mankind. But in 1972, only two years after Neil Armstrong first walked on the moon, public and political interest in Apollo had dwindled. NASA was forced to cancel their last three missions, making Apollo 17 man's final mission to the moon. Astronauts Eugene Cernan, Harrison Schmitt and Ronald Evans were the three brave men chosen to fly NASA's final mission. They have been written up in history books and acknowledged by the space and scientific communities, but have never received the public recognition they truly deserved. Apollo 17's voyage to the moon was the crowning glory of man's lunar exploration.

Winter-spring 1945: In the Pacific, on the volcanic island of Iwo Jima, the Marines face 21,000 Japanese defenders who, without hope of reinforcement, have been ordered to kill as many Americans as possible before being killed themselves. Once the island is taken, allied bombers set the cities of Japan ablaze, killing hundreds of thousands and leaving millions homeless. Meanwhile, in Europe, hundreds of thousands of Americans are crossing the Rhine and driving into the heart of Germany, while the Russians are within 50 miles of Berlin. This series directed and produced by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick tells the story of World War II through the personal accounts of a handful of men and women from four quintessentially American towns. It 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.

Since December 1941, a vicious war against Japan was being waged in the Pacific. The Japanese were driven back across the ocean, island by island, in savage hand-to-hand fighting. American dominance at sea was finally established in the 'Great Marianas Turkey Shoot', when radar gave the US Navy Advance warning of a huge Japanese attack and the last vestiges of Japanese naval air power were destroyed. But this film also looks at the war in the jungles, in places such as Burma, where new specialist fighting units - like Ord Wingates Chindits - slowly pushed back the Japanese despite horrific conditions. 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.

Rec
 
 
For 350 years, Schonbrunn Palace was the main Summer residence of Austria's imperial family, the Habsburgs. Designed in a rococo style, the 1,441 rooms have played host to some of Europe's most influential figures including Marie Antoinette, Mozart and Napoleon Bonaparte. Schonbrunn was home to two of the great Habsburgs matriarchs, Empresses Maria Theresa and Elisabeth. Maria Theresa ruled for 40 years in the 18th century and married her daughters into some of the most powerful royal houses across Europe. Empress Elisabeth, known affectionately across the Austrian Empire as Sisi, has often been compared to Princess Diana because of her beauty and iconic status. She was assassinated in Geneva in 1898. The palace is located in a 500 acre park which includes an orangery, palm house and one of Europe's oldest zoos. More Info >

Warfare has changed dramatically over the years, and the advancement of communication and surveillance technologies has played a large part in that progress. As detection, capability became more advanced with radar, sonar, and early-warning systems, the ability to operate unseen to the enemy adapted in-kind. Delving into the world of covert operations and strategic strikes, this episode explores the range of stealth technology from the simple concept of camouflage in the ghillie suit, to the high-tech radar-reduction capabilities of the Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit, as well as at the technology developed to expose them.

To his fierce defenders, Disney was a visionary artist and entrepreneur who had changed American popular culture for the better, grounding it once again in a spirit of hopeful promise and shared values. To his detractors, Disney represented everything that was wrong with American culture, from its saccharine sentimentality and simplification of history to its redirection of our attention from reality to fantasy.

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.

The months of the war in Europe were shocking and desperate. This film follows the British and the Americans as they cross the Rhine and the Russians as they push through Poland into Germany itself. It covers the horrors of the liberation of Belsen and Buchenwald, and the final terrible street fighting in Berlin. The story culminates in the suicide of Hitler, the carving up of Germany between the Allies and the Nuremberg trials. 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.

In the fifth episode of this landmark series charting the story of human civilisation, Andrew Marr tells the story of Europe's rise from piracy to private enterprise. The explosion of global capitalism began with Christopher Columbus stumbling across America while searching for China. While Europe tore itself apart in religious wars after the Reformation, the Spanish colonised the New World and brought back 10 trillion dollars' worth of gold and silver. But it was Dutch and English buccaneer businessmen who invented the real money-maker: limited companies and the stock exchange. They battled hand-to-hand to control the world's sea trade in spices, furs and luxuries like tulips. In the 145 years from 1492 to 1637, European capitalism was born and spread across the globe.

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. 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'.

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.

In the fifth episode of this landmark series charting the story of human civilisation, Andrew Marr tells the story of Europe's rise from piracy to private enterprise. The explosion of global capitalism began with Christopher Columbus stumbling across America while searching for China. While Europe tore itself apart in religious wars after the Reformation, the Spanish colonised the New World and brought back 10 trillion dollars' worth of gold and silver. But it was Dutch and English buccaneer businessmen who invented the real money-maker: limited companies and the stock exchange. They battled hand-to-hand to control the world's sea trade in spices, furs and luxuries like tulips. In the 145 years from 1492 to 1637, European capitalism was born and spread across the globe.

Shrouded in mystery, this Spanish island and its sisters were suspected to be ports for German U boats and possible 'ratline' stops for escaping Nazis to South America. One house in particular, has many stories and structural features that belie the proposed agricultural purpose of the building. Built by a mysterious German engineer in an inhospitable location, the structure contains strange tunnels, a suspicious watch tower, an air strip, bunkers and a creepy hospital-like room. Was this a secret Nazi base for Uboat resupply, or were there even darker purposes for the house?

The field is a mass of big earthworks, and historical documents do record Harold building a lodge somewhere round the village of Portskewett. Within minutes of digging, the team discover that the site was not confined to just Harold and the Saxon period, having been used since late Roman times until well into the Middle Ages.

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.

He is homeless at times, and hungry. For mere survival, he paints and sells postcards. His share of his father's inheritance is paid out on his 24th birthday. He escapes from the military and moves to Munich, declaring himself stateless to avoid investigations by the Austrian military administration. The inheritance helps to build an existence on the fringe of society. As World War I starts, Hitler joins the Bavarian Army and becomes an ardent German soldier and patriot. For the first time he feels that he belongs. The end of the war means he loses the only regular life he's known so far.

Tony Robinson leads his team of archaeologists to a tiny windswept island off the west coast of Wales. The only way over there is by rigging a 500 metre zip wire way above the wave-lashed rocks below. Incredibly, Gateholm island seems once to have been inhabited. But whether by Romans, Vikings, Celts, or Druids - nobody knows. There have been a handful of mysterious objects found there years ago; among them a rare Roman stone phallus and a beautiful bronze stag. The finds immediately suggest the island might have been some sort of religious centre. But as always, only digging will provide the answers to the many questions. And as the Welsh weather throws everything it has at the team, it turns out to be a tough three days. Made that bit tougher by the need to dig a second site just a quarter of a mile away. But this one, thankfully, is on the mainland. To the eyes of team leader Francis Pryor, it looks like a classic Iron Age fort with its curved banks and ditches on one side and a sheer cliff on the other. If he's right, it should give Phil Harding and his team of diggers more than enough to do in their three days. And if he's wrong - there's no hiding place on this stunningly beautiful but bleak coast.

Hitler is born as third of six children in Upper Austria and has an untroubled childhood. He leaves school early without graduation and is rejected twice by the Art's academy. He is homeless at times, and hungry. For mere survival, he paints and sells postcards. His share of his father's inheritance is paid out on his 24th birthday. He escapes from the military and moves to Munich, declaring himself stateless to avoid investigations by the Austrian military administration. The inheritance helps to build an existence on the fringe of society. As World War I starts, Hitler joins the Bavarian Army and becomes an ardent German soldier and patriot. For the first time he feels that he belongs. The end of the war means he loses the only regular life he's known so far.

This momentous special reveals the untold story of the little-known yet pivotal events that occurred after President Roosevelt received the call that Pearl Harbor had been attacked on December 7, 1941. Author Steve Gillon has unearthed new evidence from the FDR Library that shows the true panic that gripped the White House and shook the nation. Fearing an aerial attack in Washington, DC, the underfunded US Army assembled wooden sticks on the White House roof to resemble weapons from above. Concerned that a Japanese assassin might try to take Roosevelt's life as they drove him to Congress to deliver his speech, the Treasury Department used a bullet-proof car confiscated from Al Capone. For for the first time, intimate details of how the President had to be placed in braces and straps to hold him up while he gave his speech are uncovered.

Extreme training and combat expertise are only part of what make the SEALs the world's most effective fighting force. What truly sets them apart is their warrior ethos: a code of honour combining courage, discipline, and unhesitating willingness to risk life and limb to accomplish the mission or aid a fallen fellow soldier. This ethos has been tested like never before over the last two decades, with relentless, unprecedented periods of combat in which the SEALs have played out an outsized role. Many SEALs carry permanent injuries, and many have lost their lives - but none of them regret helping defend their nation and their brothers in arms.

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?

In 1692, America witnessed the most horrific acts of injustice when 19 innocent people were hanged and one was pressed to death for the practice of witchcraft. Today, Salem Massachusetts is a town renowned for its numerous accounts of paranormal activity. Four locations, with deep connections to the Salem Witch Trials, are plagued by restless spirits demanding that their innocence be known: a restaurant, which used to be an apple orchard and the place where the first hanging victim was arrested; the third oldest cemetery in Salem where a man was pressed to death; a historic house where two feared judges would decide the fate of supposed witches; and Gallows Hill where the hangings took place. But was there more to the Salem Witch Trials than just greed and hysteria? Could there be an underlying theory that made these trials unavoidable?

Tony Robinson, Professor Mick Aston and the team investigate one of Britain's greatest historic landmarks, among the most famous sites the program has ever been invited to: Westminster Abbey. Surrounded by the sights and sounds of Parliament Square, the archaeologists have three days to pin down the location of a lost sacristy. It's believed to be a stronghold built by Henry III almost 800 years ago and said to have housed the biggest collection of treasure this side of the Alps. Under the watchful eye of the Abbey's clergy and thousands of tourists, the diggers' attempts to find this important building are continually thwarted by the driving London rain and centuries of later building work. Surprisingly, by the 18th century, a whole row of houses and workshops had been built right up against the abbey. But the team eventually pick through the later buildings to discover their medieval target, only to find out it wasn't what everyone expected. Over three days, the team redraw the plan of the magnificent building constructed by Henry III and find tantalising evidence of an even earlier religious settlement - a pair of beautifully preserved 1000-year-old burials just a metre below the Abbey verge.
