Detailed Show info:
Living with Hitler - Some dates divide history: one world before, and another after. 30th January 1933 is such a date; on that day, Adolf Hitler was appointed as Chancellor of Germany. Twelve years is not a long time in politics, and yet the regime which he established in this time made a more damaging, enduring and controversial mark on Germany, and history in general, than any other. Over three episodes, we explore how the German population - and those in occupied territories - lived through the Nazi era of 1933 to 1945. This story is illustrated by fascinating archival material, including captivating colour footage.
Fatal Shot - Through archival material and interviews with historians, journalists, and academics, Fatal Shot uses forensic research and hard facts to explore the motives, methods, and minds of assassins, and examine some of the most famous, unique, and unusual assassinations of our time. Each episode differentiates between types of assassins - from religious zealots to political extremists, deluded misfits to state-sponsored saboteurs - identifying the particular cause that an individual or group seeks to further through their destructive act. The series also explores the various weapons of choice for assassinations: the gun, knife, bomb, or even poison. On average, a world leader continues to be assassinated every two years; Fatal Shot is a timely reminder that assassination is still very much a part of our world.
Winston Churchill’s War - This is a story of greatness: the story of how one man, matched to a moment in history, became a giant. That same man, denied his appointment with destiny, would today be a mere footnote: a poor strategist, a disastrous chancellor of the exchequer, and an unreformed Imperialist. For Winston Churchill, the war made all the difference. To understand how this one man played such a significant role in history, we revisit moments in his early life that informed his later decisions; we explore his speeches; and illustrate through rich and diverse archive the war he fought. A range of experts help to illuminate one of history’s most enduring figures - always to be named, debated, and admired when telling the story of the Second World War: Winston Churchill’s War.
Wildest Places - This series explores some of the most incredible natural habitats on the planet and an extraordinarily diverse range of wildlife.
