Private Lives of the Tudors

In the company of Tracy Borman, the UKs leading authority on the Tudor period, we explore the private lives, loves and scandals of the Tudors, the most celebrated royal dynasty in history.

This brand new series explores some of the most secretive and dangerous global underworld societies and their counter-culture dogmas.  It’s a murky, mysterious mixture of sectarian cults, fanatical religious groups, esoteric societies and political militants - all of them seeking to shape and influence the world we know today…

The Somme – The First 24 Hours with Tony Robinson

The Somme – The First 24 Hours with Tony Robinson tells the powerful and moving story of five men of one battalion as they enlist, train for and take part in the worst disaster in the history of the British army. With a secret diary kept by Private Frank Meakin – the first time it has been seen on television anywhere – and the haunting battlefields of northern France as a backdrop, Sir Tony Robinson recounts the tale of the Sheffield City ‘pals’ as only he can.

The KKK, The Priory of Sion, The Order Of Assassins… the names might be familiar but who are they? What are they? What are their beliefs and aims?

Wicked Inventions

Like it or not, warfare, conflict and the need to explore the unknown is the catalyst for human progress in technology. The fact is that mankind is at it's most inventive when it's being destructive.

It’s the same with the field of space exploration. The desire of the superpowers to dominate each other lead them to look to space to gain the upper hand. From that enormous effort and expenditure – all with military and political gain as its primary purpose – came a gamut of inventions we now use in our everday lives. This series of 30 half hour shows explores, explains and whole range of surprising gadgets, toys and implements that were originally made for a very different purpose.
