When Charles Dickens created the character of Fagin in his novel Oliver Twist, he gave birth to one of the most infamous rogues in English literature. Few people know that Dickens' portrait of Fagin drew inspiration from the life of the Jewish receiver and fencer of stolen goods, Ikey Solomon. The First Fagin recreates Ikey's journey from London's dens of vice, Newgate jail, and the notorious prison "hulks" on the Thames to a daring escape to the new world of America. Ikey then tempted fate by sailing to Tasmania in search of his wife who had been transported as a convict.

It's easy to imagine that the past was lived in black and white, but of course it wasn't. This landmark series uses modern colouration techniques to present a history of America in colour, for the first time. Decade by decade, this ambitious series puts the colour back in history, and brings the history back to life. From jazz-age speakeasies to the attack on Pearl Harbor, from the Great Depression to Elvismania, iconic images of America are vibrantly brought to the screen. To make this landmark series, filmmakers spent 6000 hours painstakingly scouring obscure archives, dusting off forgotten family vaults, and tracking down dedicated private collectors to find the 27 miles of film they needed - much of it not seen for nearly a century. The result is a feast for the eyes, and brings a fresh excitement to the seminal images of our time.

Mike Munro's real surname is not Munro: it's Kenniff. The notorious Kenniff brothers were the last of Australia's 'wild colonial boys' roaming remote north Queensland at the turn of the century, stealing cattle and horses with the confidence and skill of organised criminals. Their careers culminated in a showdown in the Carnarvon Ranges that left one policeman and a civilian dead. Their victims' bodies were found burned and chopped into pieces. Patrick and James Kenniff were caught and tried for wilful murder - but they maintained their innocence to the bitter end. What turns thieves into brutal mutilators? Was there reasonable doubt that they didn't do the deed? Mike Munro needs to know - this isn't just a question about the nature of crime and punishment, this story is deeply personal. The Kenniff's were Mike's ancestors and the cause of shame for his family through generations. The Lawless team embark on a factual and forensic analysis of the crime to search for answers, and Mike meets descendants from the other side of the story. Against the backdrop of a brutal event, this case marks a pivotal point in the history of our evolving laws and nationhood, and this investigation makes for an extraordinary personal journey for host Mike Munro.

Before Ned Kelly, it was Ben Hall who was the 'rock star' of Australian bushranging, leading a short but prolific three year crime spree across NSW in the wake of the gold rush. His criminal career comes to a bloody end when he is shot by police in a hail of bullets close to a place known as Billabong Creek on the outskirts of Forbes. But Ben Hall's death is shrouded in controversy. The official police account says that Hall was a dangerous criminal, lawfully killed while trying to escape, while the legend goes that Hall was shot in his sleep and the victim of a brutal police cover up. Now for the first time, the Lawless team undertake an analysis of Hall's bloody demise at the hand of authorities. At a time when our fledgling nation was striving for law and order, this investigation reveals the extraordinary measures enacted by authorities in NSW in an effort to become a civilised society. The death of Ben Hall exposes how justice was served in the times of the colonial era.

Archaeologist Uzma Rizvi reveals this was a civilisation built upon the production and exchange of precious stones and copper-based ornaments. As demand for these goods grew, the trade network expanded and civilisation flourished.

In the darkest days of World War II, St Peter's was shrouded in the shadow of the swastika. But even as the Fuhrer surrounded him, the Pope was plotting a secret counter-offensive. Wartime Pontiff Pius XII has been derided for his public silence about the Holocaust but evidence suggests his silence may have been subterfuge. The man branded as "Hitler's Pope" may actually have wanted to eliminate him and was leading the Vatican in a conspiracy to assassinate Adolf Hitler.

Andrew George Scott (aka Captain Moonlite) was a preacher, a con man and a gentleman - certainly not your average bushranger. After an 11-year life of crime, Moonlite's career ends in a violent gun battle that results in the death of two of his gang and a NSW policeman. The event seals his fate, sending him on a one-way trip to the gallows. But should Moonlite have swung for this crime? Controversial primary evidence raises questions as to whether he actually fired the fatal shot, and if he didn't do it, then who did? The team undertakes the first full archaeological investigation of the site of Moonlite's last stand to unearth remaining evidence of the gunfight still buried in the ground and piece together the puzzle of this event. Using forensic ballistics and pathology, the team determine which gun could have been the murder weapon. With new evidence and insights, the team complete a digital reconstruction of the event to determine, almost 140 years after the gunfight, just who was the likely killer. In one final twist, a secret from Moonlite's private life is exposed to reveal another dimension to this complex and enigmatic character. Fascinating and with an incredible human story, this investigation forever changes our view of the iconic Australian 'bloodthirsty bushranger'.

Shortly after 8pm on the Halloween Eve, 1938, the voice of a panicked radio announcer broke in with a news bulletin reporting strange explosions taking place on the planet Mars, followed minutes later by a report that Martians had landed in the tiny town of Grovers Mill, New Jersey. Although most listeners understood that the program was a radio drama, the next day's headlines reported that thousands of others plunged into panic, convinced that America was under a deadly Martian attack. It turned out to be HG Wells' classic The War of the Worlds, performed by 23-year-old Orson Welles. Featuring interviews with film director and cinema historian Peter Bogdanovich, Welles' daughter Chris Welles Feder, and other authors and experts, as well as dramatisations of some of the thousands of letters sent to Welles by an alternately admiring and furious public, War of the Worlds explores how Welles's ingenious use of the new medium of radio struck fear into an already anxious nation.

Join Mike Munro as he explores Australia's history of rebels and outlaws, unearthing the truth behind the legends. The brutal gunfight between Ned Kelly's gang and Victorian policeman on the banks of Stringybark Creek is the pivotal event in the Ned Kelly story, transforming Kelly from a petty thief to wanted outlaw and, eventually, a national icon. But were the killings an act of self-defence, as Kelly later claimed? Folklore holds Ned Kelly to be a hero, endlessly mythologised. But what if he was a clear-eyed killer? Our team embarks on the first ever archaeological and scientific investigation of the events at Stringybark Creek to answer the questions. Using the latest cutting-edge survey technology (LiDAR 3D laser scanning), traditional archaeology and forensic ballistics testing, together with new historical evidence, the team put conflicting claims to the test. Finally, we bring descendants from both sides of the story together for the first time to hear the team reveal their findings. Controversial and highly provocative, this investigation challenges the legend that has shaped our national identity and aims to change how Australians see their most famous folk icon: the hero of the underdog.
