Masking his disability in a way that would not be possible today, Franklin Delano Roosevelt reaches the Oval Office. The crash of '29 morphs seamlessly into the Great Depression that reaches every country on earth. Titans rise and fall in the calamitous era of unemployment and hunger - Hitler becomes chancellor in Germany, Mussolini secures absolute power, Spain begins the political convulsion that will bring Francisco Franco onto our stage (we meet La Pasionaria) and Stalin tightens his grip, even further, with purges and show trials and, in an increasingly unsettled India, Gandhi leads the Salt March.

Australia's biggest outback city, Kalgoorlie has witnessed a gold boom like no other. Over the past 125 years, its gold has kept rising to the surface. And so have community tensions. From the early settlers forcing the traditional owners off their ancient land, foreign prostitutes and their brothels corralled into a contained section of the city, and the introduction of Italian miners eventually bringing about one of Australia's worst-ever race riots, Kalgoorlie's residents haven't always lived together harmoniously. But thanks to the ever-present gold and the simple game of two-up, this city has survived the times. Greig Pickhaver visits the biggest open pit goldmine in Australia to explore how, even today, Kalgoorlie attracts people from around the world.
