This is the epic tale of the rise of civilisation. The Story of All of Us is not names and dates history; there will be danger, action, struggle, heroism and adrenaline. This series takes us from the first flourishing of civilisation in Mesopotamia through to the discovery of America. But the series will not only immerse the viewer in the rise and fall of the world's greatest societies, it will also reveal the incremental milestones that led to our modern world: from creating an alphabet to domesticating crops.

Every year in Pakistan, at least 100 people are victimised by brutal acid attacks. The majority are women, and many more cases go unreported. With little or no access to reconstructive surgery, survivors are physically and emotionally scarred, while many reported assailants - typically a husband or someone close to the victim - are let go with minimal punishment from the state. Saving Face tells the stories of two acid-attack survivors - Zakia and Rukhsana - and their arduous attempts to bring their assailants to justice. It also charts the charitable work of London-based, Pakistani- born, plastic surgeon Dr Mohammad Jawad, who strives to help these women put this horrific act behind them and move on with their lives.

Life on the edge of a frozen sea is tough. Pack-ice at both poles is constantly on the move and, in winter, freezes solid with air temperatures 70 degrees below freezing. Only in spring, with the retreating ice and light reaching the water, does life begin again. Plankton blooms and feeds vast hordes of migrating fish, birds, whales, seals and polar bears. Walruses rake the seabed for clams. Minke and humpback whales gorge themselves on gigantic swarms of krill. But it is a brief indulgence, for the ice soon returns and pushes life back into the ocean.

On the 6th of June 1944, tens of thousands of Allied troops landed on the coast of Normandy in the largest amphibious assault ever. For many of the young US soldiers, this war against the Nazis seemed almost like an adventure. What lay in store for them was bloody carnage on the beaches of France.
