In what could turn out to be the largest murder case on British soil. Forensic archaeologist, Caroline Sturdy Colls, goes in search of a Nazi SS camp constructed in secrecy on the British Channel island of Alderney during World War II. Years of research and forensic investigation have led Sturdy Colls to examine remnants of concentration and labour camps on the quiet island, and to official SS archives in Germany, where clues emerge that lead Caroline to suspect that Alderney was the scene of Nazi mass murders. However, when local officials attempt to stop the investigation, the search for the final resting place of the victims is imperilled. Sturdy Colls led the forensic team that discovered the gas chambers at Treblinka in 2013, but now they face their toughest challenge to date this time much closer to home. Shrouded in a decades-long conspiracy of silence amid attempts by local authorities to prevent examination and the search for the missing victims of Nazi atrocities, the team must turn to state-of-the-art technology to get the answers they seek. After much discussion, compromise and stonewalling, their final discoveries, made in spite of vigorous protests by the Alderney government, are chilling.

The Pilgrims' Way is a series of tracks in the south of England following the ancient track of the North Downs, which bore many a pilgrim to the shrines of Winchester and Canterbury along its chalky arc. But there's more to the Pilgrims' Way than pilgrims. The North Downs is the most ancient route to Europe, having been connected by that very chalk to the continent from the Ice Age. Through retreating glaciers and rising sea levels, the chalk was cut by the North and Atlantic seas so that between 5500 to 3500 years ago the Dover coast first began to resemble its iconic white cliffs profile.

At the beginning of the twentieth century, small standing armies marched around or got on and off troopships. WWI changed all of that as it sucked more and more men into battle and the armies of European nations swelled to a million or more men. Men who needed the long tail of support to feed and equip them, and then to treat their wounds and issue their pay. The challenge of moving such armies swiftly and efficiently was first met by the railways. And it has remained a challenge over the last hundred years. This episode tells the story of how machines have been used, and are being used, to transport armies and all of their equipment over land, across sea and in the air - from giant freighters to the image that became an iconic representation of action in Vietnam, the helicopter.

The reputation of King George III of England as a foolish madman often overshadows his achievements and qualities as a monarch. As the first exhibition to focus on this much-maligned king opens at Buckingham Palace, this programme reveals a very different side to a remarkable monarch. In fact, King George was a major patron of the arts and sciences and today, his collections of art and books constitute a major part of Britain's cultural heritage. His success in anchoring the monarchy despite the ever-present threat of revolution, had a profound impact on the future of Britain. New revelations from diaries and letters and interviews with experts, including his descendent the Prince of Wales, examine why history paints him as a fool and whether it is right to do so.
