Pickwick Public Relations. Steve Warner. Joe O'Har. In Richard Miles's epic story of civilisation, there have been plenty of examples of the great men of history, but none came close to the legend of Alexander of Macedon, known to us as 'the Great'.
Uniting the fractious Greek city-states, he led them on a crusade against the old enemy, Persia, and in little more than a decade created an empire that stretched from Egypt in the west, to Afghanistan in the east. But it was Alexander's successors, the Hellenistic Kings, who had to make sense of the legacy of this charismatic adventurer. By knuckling down to the hard graft of politics, taxation and public works, they created something far more enduring than a mere legend - they built a civilisation.
Richard traces Alexander's battle-scarred route through Turkey, Syria and Lebanon to Egypt, and ultimately to the western Punjab, Pakistan, where he discovers fascinating traces of a city where Greek west and Buddhist east were united in an intriguing new way. This episode explores Ancient Egyptian beliefs and superstitions. We discover how environmental scientist; studying Twister Bristlecone Pines in the White mountains of California believe these trees hold vital clues in the search for an explanation of the biblical plagues.
We solve the mystery of thousand feline corpses, spread upon farmland in Victorian England, and investigate the role of different animals in Egyptian religion, both in this life and the next. We investigate the deadly curse cast by King Tutankhamen from beyond the grave and chart the science that separates curse from coincidence. What's more, we test a mummified baboon using state of the art technology and unlock the secrets of the Ancient Egyptian's 'paradise on earth' - the land of Punt.
On October 1, Mao Zedong held a victory celebration parade in Tian'amen Square and announced to the world the creation of a People's Republic of China. China had awakened, and the decades since have given truth to Napoleon's prophetic words. Interestingly, very few people actually understood Mao's speech, and only one sentence has ever been translated and synced to audio - until now. October is a definitive account of how Mao orchestrated and carried out this spectacular parade, all the while facing threats of an on-going civil war.
Go behind the scenes of this parade with film maker Peter Du Cane as he unearths rare archive footage and pieces together the remainder of this historic speech and makes it whole for the first time ever. Deadly forests. Haunted houses. Mountains where visitors never return alive. Are there such things as 'evil places'? Places where bad things seem to repeatedly - and inexplicably - happen? And if so, is it possible that these locations are imbued with dark energy that is currently beyond our understanding?
The book 'Chariots of the Gods' challenged everything we thought we knew about mankind's history, suggesting that aliens visited Earth in the distant past; Fifty years after the book's publication, is he about to be proven right? Hitler's obsession with the Crimea was the source of fierce disagreements with his General staff, who according to the Fuhrer, knew nothing about the economics of war.
So it was that the German 11th Army under Manstein broke through the Soviet lines in October , but this was only the beginning of a series of bloody battles that cost the Russians two whole armies.
For his bombardment and capture of Sevastapol, Manstein was promoted to Field Marshal. However, the tide turned after the disastrous German defeats at Stalingrad and Kursk. Cut off and isolated in the Crimea, the Germans faced massive Russian attacks and Sevastapol surrendered, against Hitler's orders, in May Twelve German and Rumanian divisions were completely destroyed and 25, prisoners were taken. In January , the British Empire had gone to war with the independent Zulu kingdom.
The British had entered the war convinced of their military superiority and the righteousness of their cause. But just eleven days into the campaign, they had suffered the worst military disaster of Queen Victoria's reign here, at Isandlwana. Over British troops and their African allies were killed, and the survivors chased ignominiously out of Zululand.
Even the successful defence of the border post at Rorke's Drift, which followed the disaster, could not obscure the fact that the British strategy was in tatters. News of the defeat reverberated around the Empire, and troops were hurried to southern Africa to restore British prestige. The Zulu people were characterised in the world's press as savages, implausibly ferocious warriors who, like Africa itself, needed to be tamed in the name of civilisation.
The British Empire cried out for revenge. This program documents the incredible story of the closest anyone ever came to assassinating Hitler and overthrowing his government. The basis for the feature film Valkyrie, the historical plot was masterminded by German Colonel Claus von Stauffenburg with a group of other brave military and government insiders. Using Hitler's own contingency plan, the Resistance were able to orchestrate a plan in which they could kill Hitler, and convince the Reserve army to unknowingly fight for their cause.
The Resistance knew that certain death awaited them if they were caught, but for these heroic men, the chance to change history was well worth the risk. Castleford, a former Yorkshire mining town, conceals a big secret. Local people believe their town should appear on the list of great Roman cities alongside Colchester, Bath and St Albans. It's known more for its rugby than its history, but years ago, the great Roman highway of Ermine Street went through the centre and a huge fort dominated the town. Digging up the Co-op car park, the British Legion backyard and a local football pitch makes for a busy three days as Tony Robinson and the team help put Castleford on the map of Roman Britain.
The team search for a lost Anglo-Saxon monastery on the rain and windswept Headland at Hartlepool in Northumberland. But the monastery disappeared after years and lay forgotten until workmen unearthed human bones and grave markers in Now the team has just three days to find the exact location of the monastery and perhaps the remains of some of St Hilda's followers. The story of how Champollion began to uncover the strange world described by the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs.

His odyssey took him to Turin, then Egypt and finally to his death. On the way, he had to fight a bitter rearguard action against the Church, which tried to prevent him from discovering anything that contradicted its chronology of the ancient world, derived directly from the Bible. By , everyone in Europe had been infected with a fascination for Ancient Egypt. At huge cost, the King of France purchased a relief from the ceiling of the temple of Dendera in Egypt.
A number of experts believed this to be an ancient temple. There was much excitement about just how ancient it really was. If it was much older than BC, it threatened the established chronology of the Bible. According to accepted theory, Noah's Flood should have happened around BC. As it destroyed any civilisation that existed then and before, the Ancient Egyptian civilisation must post-date the Flood.
But just how old was the relief? On the surface, London is a buzzing, modern metropolis, but underneath lies a secret, hidden world, all but forgotten by the millions of people above. Secrets of Underground London uncovers years of subterranean history - a world of ancient caves, perfectly preserved Roman remains, mysterious rivers, gruesome plague pits, impenetrable vaults, and top-secret bunkers. Concrete channels hidden in a mountaintop forest The fabled island that vanished beneath the waves is one of the greatest enigmas of the ancient world.
Described by Plato, Atlantis was initially thought to be just myth and legend. But could the lost civilization be real?

A castle reputedly as grand and important as Warwick once dominated the Midlands village of Henley-in-Arden. Now there is just a hill. An eccentric American millionaire has bought himself the title of Lord of the Manor, and he's desperate to know what his castle might have looked like in its Norman and medieval heydays. After three days, 10 trenches and one archery contest, Tony Robinson and the team believe they have the answer.
Tony Robinson and the team faced one of their biggest challenges when they travelled to York to excavate three sites from three different historical periods in just three days. The finds ranged from a Roman skeleton complete with hobnail boots to a Viking's discarded leather shoe and the pillars of a monastic hospital. But what does all this evidence reveal? After battling across the island of Okinawa for over a month, Sledge and the rest of the 1st Marine Division are ordered to relieve an Army division that has been in combat against the most strongly defended Japanese position on the island.

How did an insignificant cluster of Latin hill villages on the edge of the civilised world become the greatest empire the world has known? In the fifth programme of the series, archaeologist and historian Richard Miles examines the phenomenon of the Roman Republic, from its fratricidal mythical beginnings, with the legend of Romulus and Remus, to the all too real violence of its end, dragged to destruction by war lords like Pompey the Great and Julius Caesar.
Travelling to Sicily and North Africa, Richard tells the story of Rome's century-long struggle for dominance with the other great regional power, Carthage.

This series gives extraordinary insight into a decade that had a profound impact on the politics, technology and culture of today, by exploring significant events and individuals that played a part in shaping the '80s.
The s began with renewed confrontation between the two nuclear-armed superpowers, the United States and the Soviet Union. President Reagan faced-off against a succession of ageing Soviet leaders with Contras in Central America, mujahideen in Afghanistan, cruise missiles in Europe, a Star Wars defence system in space and his own soaring rhetoric: "tear down this wall. The world changed in fundamental ways in the first few years of the '90s. Nelson Mandela was freed from prison and Mikhail Gorbachev was forced out of office as apartheid ended in South Africa and the Soviet Union collapsed.
In the election, Ross Perot, a flamboyant multi-millionaire businessman challenged the political establishment and Bill Clinton became America's first Baby Boom president. A field near the east coast of the Isle of Wight. Scatterings of early pottery, some fine Roman metalwork, but as yet no signs of any buildings. The area is known for at least one grand Roman villa; could this be the site of a second?
On the surface it looks just like any other large Lincolnshire field. But when a pipe was laid across it a couple of years previously, the trench revealed a number of shallow graves. An exploratory dig in identified them as Anglo-Saxon, on a site which also threw up large quantities of Roman remains. An earlier water pipe, laid in , had uncovered a lot of Roman pottery here too. So what did it all indicate?
