Inquisition

This is a saga of nearly five hundred years of bigotry, fear, persecution, torture and death.
As the series sheds new light on a dark and bloody chapter of British and European history, we’ll hear tales that chill the blood; watch in horror as the flames lick around the Marian martyrs and other men of high religion and unshakable beliefs; see ordinary innocent people fall victim to religious fanatics and psychopaths.

From the persecution of religions and faiths, to the hunt for the mysterious Cathars and Knights Templar, through to the torture and execution of witches, mystics and healers, these programmes chronicle of bad deeds done in the name of faith.

Fight Club: A History of Violence

Throughout the centuries close physical combat has been used to entertain the public; to make fortunes for gamblers; to escape the bonds of slavery; to aid diplomatic relations; to settle scores and finish vendettas; to protect and maintain personal honour.

This gritty series looks at the realities of these ruthless one-on-one contests and how they affected the mind and the body. It puts them into social and historical context by painting a vivid picture of the time in which they took place. Featuring vivid dramatised recreations, the series explores bare knuckle boxing, duelling and jousting as it traces the history of man to man – and woman to woman – fighting.
