    Lawrence of Arabia, Season 2 | Episode 3

    Lawrence of Arabia, immortalised in his own epic book "Seven Pillars of Wisdom," is seen by some as the great military mind of World War I in the Middle East; and by others as one of the greatest liars and charlatans of the 20th century. In this programme we chart the arguments for and against Lawrence being the key player in the Great Arab Revolt of 1916-18, the start of the battle over territory that has plagued the western world and Arab states ever since. The Great Arab Revolt Project (GARP) in Southern Jordan is an archaeological investigation of a battlefield on a dramatic scale. We reinvestigate evidence laid out in the Seven Pillars of Wisdom and analyse archaeologists' discoveries that are restoring Lawrence's place in history as both a military genius, and an honourable man.

    Race For Gold, Season 1 | Episode 1

    ALASKA: the gold mining Mecca of North America. The season is short - only 100 days from the first thaw until the ground and rivers freeze up again. Determined men and women suffer through physical and emotional pain as they head out to remote locations to mine for gold. They will either strike it rich or go broke trying. Among those 'going for the gold' are: JOHN REEVES, one of the largest private landowners in the state. With gold prices soaring, John is taking a second look at the properties he owns. Helping him in hunt for treasure is an archive of old maps that will hopefully point him to where the gold is on his vast property. He brings in his city slicker kids to help him prospect and hopefully find the mother lode. Then there's DOUG BAKER. Part brilliant mining engineer/ part mad scientist, Doug leads his family mining operation, the down-and-dirty Mudminers. Doug is half a million dollars in the hole after a disastrous season last year. If this season isn't his best, it will be his last. Finally, we have CCR MINING, a company started by two young upstarts, CREIGHTON LAPP and CHUCK TILLIAN who are looking to join the big leagues. They have leased a mining claim that is supposedly "gold rich" from CLARK DURANT. CCR has high hopes for the season, but after a slow start and a series of miscommunications…

    Bullet Train, Season 3 | Episode 6

    Richard Hammond reveals the surprising engineering connections between Japan's 'bullet train' - the world's first high speed railway - and ancient charioteers, a crowbar, a medieval clock, the electric telegraph, and a 19th century luxury racing car. Nearly 50 years old the bullet train is still pioneering new high-speed technology. Engineers re-invented the train wheel to allow the bullet train to run at close to 300 kilometres per hour, and devised an ingeniously levered pantograph - the connection between the train and the overhead power lines - to eliminate the danger of 10,000 C electrical arcs. Making the train light - so it can accelerate quickly - called for a solution first used in a Lohner Porsche, the world's first four wheel drive car. Every single carriage of the bullet train is driven - except for the first and last - the exact opposite of a conventional train. The bullet train has 112 wheel drive. Cornering at high speed called for the train to lean - something ancient charioteers practised to corner faster. The track is banked but the train itself leans as it corners. Running the bullet train across a country hit by about 900 earthquakes a year required the world's most sophisticated earthquake detection system that would stop trains automatically to avoid high speed derailment - a solution made possible by the electric telegraph.

    Explorer takes viewers around the world on the hunt for blood antiquities. Otherwise known as conflict antiquities or loot, these items have been known to fund genocide, terrorism and organized crime. Looting is nothing new, from Egyptian tombs, to Angkor antiquities, to Mayan ruins, to WWII relics-looting is as old as art. Looters can be opportunistic civilians trying to make a buck or entire regimes funding war. Buyers are just as diverse: from wealthy art collectors to well-known auction houses and museums. Liberal laws have allowed antiquities to circulate the art world-with a don't ask, don't tell policy-keeping stolen artifacts under the radar. The anti-looting laws that do exist are not universal and are often not enforced. But ISIS has changed the game. The looting of Syrian antiquities may be one of their main sources of funding and a major platform for propaganda. Their looting of Syria is violently erasing our shared cultural heritage and more importantly, a horrifying realization has starting to penetrate the public consciousness: buyers in Europe and America are helping to finance the most macabre terrorist group of the century.

After his death, his body became one of the most sacred objects in history. Pilgrims, from common men to the most powerful emperors, visited and knelt before the remains of their god-King. And then suddenly, all trace of his tomb simply disappeared. What happened to Alexander's body? Did Christians intent on stamping out all trace of other religions destroy it? Or, as one historian believes, does it still exist, renamed and venerated as a saint in one of the most glorious Christian basilicas in the world?

    Alexander The Great, Season 2 | Episode 4

    Alexander The Great is world-famous for being the military genius who conquered much of the known world. But to many people of antiquity he was far more than a mere general. He was a god. After his death, his body became one of the most sacred objects in history. Pilgrims, from common men to the most powerful emperors, visited and knelt before the remains of their god-King. And then suddenly, all trace of his tomb simply disappeared. What happened to Alexander's body? Did Christians intent on stamping out all trace of other religions destroy it? Or, as one historian believes, does it still exist, renamed and venerated as a saint in one of the most glorious Christian basilicas in the world?

    High-Speed Bike Crash, Season 2 | Episode 2

    Tumbling off a bicycle at a speed of 108 mph is beyond imagination for most anyone. But not for a professional downhill speed biker like Eric Barone with multiple world speed records on a bicycle. For him it's the worst case scenario. And on May 12, 2002 on Volcano Cerro Negro in Nicaragua it came true. Eric Barone had already passed the velocity sensor and had done a new world record when his bike suddenly broke in two. By watching the crash it seems almost impossible that anybody could survive such an accident. But Eric Barone did. That raises two key questions we will answer in this episode. Why did Eric Barone's bike break and how could he survive an impact at 108 mph? With the help of different experts and their equipment we visit several locations and do exciting experiments like jumping off a ledge or crashing a dummy into a barrier. But there's more to it than that. Speed biker Markus Stoeckl joins in the experiments to prepare to break Eric Barone's May 12, 2002 record - without the crash.
