When war broke out in Europe in July 1914, people on all sides believed it would be over by Christmas. Little could they know just how wrong they were. By November 1918, ten million people had died and the political map of the world had been re-drawn. Caught up in the middle of the chaos were millions of ordinary men, women and children. Their very lives changed in ways they could never have imagined - this is their story. The centenary of the outbreak of World War I is fast approaching. This is not the time for yet another film about battles fought and governments toppled, but for a radical new approach to historical documentary. The Great War Diary will retell the story of the greatest war mankind had ever seen in a unique way - it will let viewers experience World War I solely through the eyes of those who lived it. From over 1000 very dramatic stories of the war, left behind in diaries, letters, postcards and telegrams, we have chosen the 14 most vivid and emotional from around the globe.

On September 11, 2001, an unimaginable horror unfolded that devastated the United States and the rest of the world. Fifteen years later we are still gripped by terror, but it has transformed. Attacks have been coming fast and furious, but they are no longer commanded by a central entity. This is terrorism in the age of the Internet: crowd-sourced violence. This gripping documentary investigates the psychology of terrorists and examines how radical organisations use modern propaganda and social media to cultivate an army of self-radicalised killers. This program goes inside the minds of this new breed of terrorist to define the new techniques and technologies that can be utilised to help law enforcement cope with this elusive threat and to figure out how psychology and technology can be leveraged to end this dreadful cycle of terror.

It was the year African Americans fought back against injustice in Harlem. Based in part on the novel by Jon Margolis, this documentary follows some of the most influential figures of the time, and brings out from the shadows the stories of ordinary Americans whose principled stands would set the country onto a different course.

Learning that Grey had advised Germany of French neutrality without the knowledge of France, George V informs Wilhelm that there has been a 'misunderstanding', a statement that fuels the German belief in British duplicity. Hatred of socialism also makes war seem attractive and, to Jens' horror, the parliament vote for war credits.
