We often think of Napoleon Bonaparte as the incredible legislator and war leader, but we tend to forget that he was a prolific patron and instigated many constructions that are anchored in the Parisian landscape. The Arc de Triomphe, the Vendome Column, the Palais de la Bourse, the church of La Madeleine, the building of bridges and piercing of canals. This film tells the story of these megastructures that we owe to Napoleon. How many architects, sculptors, workers, had to be called for these constructions? How to build such imposing sites in the heart of Paris? How long did these construction works last as they were often disturbed by an unstable political context? Why were these changes necessary? What innovations in terms of materials and what technical prowess their constructions engendered? Examine these questions. Let's throw it back to the extraordinary transformations of the First Empire, a precursory work that will be extended and amplified during the Second Empire.

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.

Louis XI was an inspired strategist. So brilliantly did he master the art of setting traps for his enemies, he became known as the 'Universal Spider' in the courts of Europe.

From the royal Chateau d'Amboise to the Chateau de Langeais, the epic historical reconstructions and gripping narratives of this series reveal how the lust for power and personal obsessions of princes redrew the frontiers of France and other European nations.
