    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.

    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?

    Battle for Virunga, Season 2 | Episode 10

    Virunga National Park is within one of the most volatile regions on the planet. Rebel groups and militias roam its jungles; the park's protected species are slaughtered as pawns in a bloody war; western oil giants seek to extract the park's vast resources; and park rangers are murdered on the job. In many ways, the war-torn national park and its struggling residents are flashpoints for a global crisis: much of the planet's most biologically diverse lands are home to some of the world's poorest populations..crippled by decades of bloody regional war. Are there enough Earthly resources to support the planet's growing population? Will protected wilderness be sacrificed for the survival of man? BATTLE FOR VIRUNGA takes viewers on an incredible journey through Africa's oldest national park where a clash between exploitation and conservation threatens to destroy Virunga's people, animals, and even the land itself. In terms of natural resources, the Democratic Republic of the Congo is one of the wealthiest nations in the world. Yet, over seventy percent of the country's population lives in poverty. For the four million desperately poor residents living in and around Virunga, the park's borders are an arbitrary distinction, and conservation is just another term for the rich and powerful taking the best for themselves. Armed militias too use the park and its vast resources as a means of power in an ongoing and bloody regional conflict. Can the needs of the people be aligned with the preservation of the land on which they live?

So what happened to Hitler between 1914 and 1918 to make him take a fateful decision to go in to politics, someone who before the war was a directionless drifter? This programme uses the latest neurological research to evaluate Hitler's medical history following gas poisoning. It retraces his time as a frontline soldier, and then at a psychiatric wartime hospital. It explores a possible Nazi Party cover-up, and an American top-secret report from 1943. Some experts believe that Hitler's war experiences led him to suffer from an extreme psychological disorder.

Rebel groups and militias roam its jungles; the park's protected species are slaughtered as pawns in a bloody war; western oil giants seek to extract the park's vast resources; and park rangers are murdered on the job. In many ways, the war-torn national park and its struggling residents are flashpoints for a global crisis: much of the planet's most biologically diverse lands are home to some of the world's poorest populations..crippled by decades of bloody regional war. Are there enough Earthly resources to support the planet's growing population? Will protected wilderness be sacrificed for the survival of man? BATTLE FOR VIRUNGA takes viewers on an incredible journey through Africa's oldest national park where a clash between exploitation and conservation threatens to destroy Virunga's people, animals, and even the land itself. In terms of natural resources, the Democratic Republic of the Congo is one of the wealthiest nations in the world. Yet, over seventy percent of the country's population lives in poverty. For the four million desperately poor residents living in and around Virunga, the park's borders are an arbitrary distinction, and conservation is just another term for the rich and powerful taking the best for themselves. Armed militias too use the park and its vast resources as a means of power in an ongoing and bloody regional conflict. Can the needs of the people be aligned with the preservation of the land on which they live?

    Cokeland, Season 5 | Episode 1

    Oakland, California has been rocked by a Police corruption scandal and a $58 million budget deficit which has decimated the city's police department staffing and morale. It's become known as the city with half a police force. On weekends, 'sideshows' or illegal car rallies tear up the city streets. They often end in violence, and gunfights in Oakland frequently happen in broad daylight. Oakland is the third most dangerous city in the US. It has the 7th highest murder rate per capita and is number one in violent robberies. The drug market has become an unregulated free for all, worth millions of dollars per year. With very few police on the streets, dealers use extreme violence to vie for supremacy, either on the corner or amongst Mexican gangs who control the supply routes into Oakland. However, they face a formidable team of elite undercover detectives working for the Alameda County Sheriff.

    What made Hitler the monster he became? Why did he rise to such a dominating position of power over the German people? These are the enduring mysteries that occupy some historians today.

It retraces his time as a frontline soldier, and then at a psychiatric wartime hospital. It explores a possible Nazi Party cover-up, and an American top-secret report from 1943.

    Do flying saucers really make interstellar pit-stops on planet Earth? The evidence abounds... videotape and photographs depict large, glowing, disc-like objects hovering over the countryside... mysterious, perfectly circular rings in the grass are discovered all over the globe... and real-life testimonies of close encounters are a dime a dozen.
