Allied forces were evacuated off Crete's south coast in a dangerous operation that cost the lives of almost 1000 British seamen and Allied soldiers. Protected by a series of bloody and heroic rear-guard actions to slow down the German advance, thousands of soldiers embarked on a forced march over the mountains of central Crete to meet Royal Navy ships which would take them hundred of kilometres across the Mediterranean to Alexandria in Egypt. This was a mini Dunkirk but many didn't make it. Thousands were left on the beaches as the last ship left. Hundreds made their own way to Africa by whatever means including small boats or else headed for the hills where they hid out for months even years living in caves or protected by Cretan families. More than 10,000 Allied soldiers were taken prisoners of war.

At just before 7pm on May 26, 1940, UK Prime Minister Winston Churchill authorised Operation Dynamo to commence. By the time the operation came to an end on the night of June 4th, a total of 338,226 Belgian, French and British soldiers had been rescued by a hastily assembled fleet of over 800 boats. The rescue was necessary because the British Expeditionary Force - or BEF, that had gone to assist its ally France, had been forced to retreat by the speed and ferocity of the German advance though Holland, Belgium and France. The Allied forces had been duped into thinking the main attack was coming from the north through Holland and Belgium, when in fact it came through the Ardennes, and succeeded in cutting the Allied armies in two. Now the BEF found itself surrounded on three sides by German forces, and with its back to the sea at Dunkirk.

Britain. 3000 BC. Out of a violent, divided nation of early farmers a surprising new society is born. Unified and organised to such an extent that they can harness the expertise and drive to build the world's greatest and most mysterious monument. Stonehenge. When the society disappears, it transforms into a new culture founded on metal and personal wealth. However, the builders leave something more than the mammoth monument behind. They leave their bodies, buried in the earth. Leading Stonehenge expert, Professor Mike Parker Pearson, opens his groundbreaking discoveries to us so we can tell the story of Stonehenge in a unique way. It has always been shrouded in magic and secrets, but now, for the first time we will meet the people who worshipped, celebrated, lived and died in the shadow of Stonehenge. In the process, we trace the dramatic rise and fall of one of the greatest prehistoric societies in the world. This genuinely new narrative is based on the latest research conducted into the cremated and buried people at the site. The stones have mesmerised humans for hundreds of generations. Now we will meet the makers.
