Joseph Stalin is back. Or is he? Reporter John Sweeney travels more than 5000 miles through the old Soviet Union, from Stalin's birthplace in Georgia to a former labour camp in Russia, to find out if one of the 20th century's most notorious mass-murderers is really being rehabilitated.
The war on the Eastern Front was racial: Slav verses Teuton. It was highly mobile, fought across brutal terrain from the Urais to the Alps. It initiated many horrors of twentieth century warfare: chemical weapons, mass expulsions of civilians, the persecution of Jews. The Italian front with Austro-Hungary was perhaps the bitterest of all. Soldiers lived and fought for years in the hardest environments, enduring avalanches and frost-bite as well as relentless enemy action. Mistrust and contempt increasingly threatened alliances. Germany shored up her ally Austria-Hungary, feeling herself shackled to a corpse, while Austria-Hungary saw Germany as her secret enemy.
Tony Robinson goes underground in Wales to see how hurriers, the children who worked in coal mines, fared during the Industrial Revolution.
The Ottoman Empire, Germany's ally, summoned all Muslims to Jihad, holy war, to overthrow Allied power in the Middle East. Turkey's search for scapegoats after defeat by the Russians at Sarakamish led to the mass deportation of Armenians in the Ottoman Empire. Perhaps 800,000 Armenians died in all. The Allies initially thought Turkey - the "sick man of Europe" - would be a push-over, but Turkey tied up Allied troops across the Middle East for four years, winning triumphantly at Gallipoli with terrible losses on both sides, and then at Kut, south of Baghdad, forcing the British into humiliating surrender.
To mark the 50th anniversary of JFK's election as US President and the 47th anniversary of his assassination, SBS will screen this remarkable documentary that tells the story of one of the most significant events in American history. Presented in chronological order without any narration, JFK: 3 Shots That Changed America takes viewers inside the immediate shock of Kennedy's death and the chaos that reigned in the aftermath.
This remarkable documentary of the assassination of President John F Kennedy brings to light original news footage that has been hidden away for over 45 years. The world was rocked by the shooting of the iconic US president as his cavalcade drove through Dallas on November 22, 1963, and the incident has been covered extensively in the decades since. However, The Lost JFK Tapes offers a fresh approach to this historical event, thanks to nearly 100 hours of amazing material that has previously been languishing in a vault.
The special employs cutting-edge forensics and film archives to prove that the only bullets fired at President Kennedy's motorcade came from the Texas School Book Depository, disputing conspiracy theories. The special features an investigative team of experts, interviews with key players from that fateful day and the help of Australian engineering company Anatomical Surrogates. This is the latest example of using breakthrough technology to authenticate scientific theories. This encompasses an intensive forensic investigation that proves the lone gunman theory.
The 35th president of the US. He was the youngest ever to be elected president and was assassinated on November 22, 1963, after only serving two years in office. Kennedy's life and the subsequent conspiracy theories surrounding his death have been the topic for many films.
War for Europe meant war for the world. Germany gambled that Britain might risk everything to protect her Empire, even victory on the Western Front. So, to divert British resources, maverick German commanders led the British in a dance across the Pacific, Africa and the Middle East. They became legends in Germany and Britain - men like Admiral Graf von Spee, who inflicted Britain's greatest naval defeat for 250 years. The global war sucked in Africans, Chinese and Indians to serve in France. Meanwhile, the war in Africa exploited its people and left behind a wasteland but also sowed the seeds of self-determination.
