After 200 years under lock and key, all the personal papers of one of our most important monarchs are for the first time seeing the light of day. In the first documentary to gain extensive access to the Royal Archives, Robert Hardman sheds fascinating new light on George III, Britain's longest reigning king. George III may be chiefly remembered for his madness, but these private documents reveal a monarch who was a political micromanager and a restless patron of science and the arts, an obsessive traveller who never left southern England yet toured the world in his mind and a man who was driven by his sense of duty to his family and his country.
Our time-travelling class arrives in 1960. With a brand new decade, comes a new school for our pupils - the Secondary Modern. Leaving behind the rigidity and formality of the post-war grammar, they are now training for a more vocational future. For the girls this means an introduction to typewriting, and for the boys, bricklaying. There was no escaping the basics, as our class find out in maths. One of the few lessons in which boys and girls were mixed, there's widespread confusion as they try to master the complex art of the slide rule; no calculators here! In 1963, there's a rebellion brewing as the girls are told they'll be cooking a meal in their very own purpose-built flat. The boys have been learning a skill deemed crucial for school leavers. Behind the wheel of mini, they've been learning to drive for the first time. As the decade draws to a close, friends, families, pupils and teachers get together in the school hall for the end of era dance.

Narrated by Tom Selleck. Sunday, December 7, 1941 was a beautiful morning on the Hawaiian island of Oahu. A few sailors and soldiers were already up and playing a game of football near Pearl Harbor. Others were sleeping in their barracks or aboard ships after a late night of partying in Honolulu. An unlucky few were wiping the sleep from their eyes and reporting for duty aboard their ship anchored off Ford Island in Pearl Harbor. Still others headed for adjacent Hickam Field or up north to Wheeler Field. Ship decks were being washed, planes wiped down and hangars swept. It was just another day in paradise. At 7.55am all that changed as the first Japanese planes dropped their torpedoes and bombs on a stunned American Pacific fleet. The US had been violently thrown into World War II. Every sailor, airman, soldier and civilian who was in or near Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 has their own individual story of courage, fear, heroics or tragedy. No two stories from that day of infamy are the same. From sailors on the USS Arizona and West Virginia on Battleship Row to pilots at Hickam and Wheeler Fields, to young children who were waved at by Japanese pilots flying over their homes, the memories remain vivid to this day. These are some of their stories from December 7, 1941. They will always Remember Pearl Harbor.
Survivors and first responders share their raw and vivid recollections of the day that forever changed the world.

Their time-travels begin in 1945 and World War II has ended, and a revolution in education has begun. Our class are now the pupils' of a post-war grammar. The first lesson begins with English for the girls, and while they might consider themselves lucky to finally be taught an academic subject. The class are given free school milk as part of a government health drive. History sees them learning ancient dates and historical events by heart. Despite more high-brow learning, the girls find they are still being educated in more delicate subjects of the curriculum, without the boys. Taking part in a deportment and etiquette lesson, practising balancing books on their heads and enunciating social behaviours may not seem useful them now, but their next lesson of 1950s style sex-ed is an eye-opener. As the decade progresses, our class head out to embrace the rock and roll culture where it's all fashion, food, milkshakes and music.

As the pupils grapple with strange new words, the teacher struggles to master the latest teaching resource - a wind-up gramophone. In 1920, the pupils line up for a bizarre school medical, having their lung capacity and even head circumference measured as a sign of their intelligence. The headmaster announces a surprising treat, it's time for the class to take their compulsory nap. There's a mutiny in the classroom as its announced boys will learn science and make a model zeppelin, while the girls tend to dolls and fold nappies. The boys have a surprise in store when they start their PE lesson in 1937, with a routine inspired by the Hitler Youth. Military training in schools signals an impending war, and so the boys take part in a patriotic march.
