Engineers are constructing and fitting out a new station at Paddington, erecting a 230m-long great glass canopy to soar above the structure, and plugging directly into Brunel's original grade one-listed station - a nerve wracking feat. At Tottenham Court Road, workers are building underground platforms and concourses the size of an aircraft carrier in the heart of the world's busiest shopping district. The team must carefully remove enormous props that hold apart the station walls, as convoys of concrete trucks drive down Oxford Street where half a million shoppers and tourists visit, every day. In Derby, a father and son team race to construct 66 trains to ferry passengers across the 50km of Crossrail line.

The LGBT movement in America began one night in late June on the streets of Greenwich Village, New York, in a bar called the Stonewall Inn. When police raided the place, gay men and women who had been made to live in the shadows of shame finally decided to fight back against the police, and to demand their civil rights. Bars and dance clubs were - and still are - places of refuge for LGBT people, and the music played on jukeboxes, from Judy Garland to Gloria Gaynor, has also been a vital aspect of the LGBT experience over the past five decades. Although the 1980s and 90s brought the AIDS crisis and anti-gay legislation that threatened the LGBT community, it only strengthened the resolve of activists - and artists - to push harder. Some musicians incorporated aspects of LGBT life into their lyrics. Others have furthered the cause of equality simply by coming out of the closet. This is a struggle that is not over, but with allies in popular culture like Lady Gaga, this episode shows the power of music to raise awareness and to preach tolerance.

The Arabs have been bringing knowledge of the ancient world to Europe since the 8th century. In the fields of medicine, mathematics or philosophy, their scholars were far beyond their time and still affect our world today. For a long time the Arabs were estranged, not united by one nation or leader. They had little in common but a shared language. This didn't change until Mohammed ended polytheism, founded a new religion and united all of the Arabic tribes in their faith in one God: Allah.

After decades living under a repressive Communist regime, the people of East Germany could no longer stay trapped behind the brick wall that separated them from their countrymen in the West - and so they tore that Wall down. Since the 1960s, West Berlin had been a cultural hotspot and a draw for artists like the Rolling Stones and David Bowie. But because rock music was considered politically dangerous to the Communist authorities, teenagers in the East had little access to it. This episode charts the course of the Cold War in Berlin through music, showing how it helped to sow the seeds of rebellion. After the Wall officially came down in 1989, a number of artists including Roger Waters of Pink Floyd put on concerts to celebrate. But it was a German band, the Scorpions, who came up with the true anthem of that moment in time, 'Wind of Change', which captured the bittersweet emotions behind such a dramatic moment in history.

The worst terrorist attack in American history is also the least understood. It was not the action of one man - Osama bin Laden. It was the creation of a network, spanning decades. It began as a New York story, as home-grown as baseball. And while the first blood was shed in the early 1990s, the roots of the violence stretch back decades and even centuries, making the final horrendous act almost inevitable. This series will redefine our understanding of what happened, focusing primarily on the period between the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and the moment of impact on 9/11 itself. Using a tick-tock of tense cat-and-mouse narratives of terrorists and counter-terrorists, friends and foes, we follow the calamitous intersection of war and faith, natural resources and scientific progress, plane and tower. How did this happen? When did this hate begin, and why?

The Beatles endure as the greatest popular music band of all times as the band's music and lyrics have transcended the decades-and John, Paul, George, and Ringo's individual personalities-to influence generations of musicians and fans across the world. But before the fame and fortune there was the lesser-known story about the six young men who would-and wouldn't-grow up to become The Beatles. Becoming The Beatles begins in working class Liverpool in the 1950s, a grim sea port where poverty haunted every street. It was within these hardscrabble streets, though, that a group of young men met and began to create music that would literally change the world. After exploring the childhoods of John, Paul, and George, as well as that of their friends and former band mates, Stuart Sutcliffe and Pete Best, the film delves into the club scene in Hamburg, Germany, where the band truly learned how to make music and perform as a band and which became the launching pad for Beatlemania and the band's ultimate success. Interwoven with interviews with old friends and band members from the early years, and vintage clips of the lads themselves, are rare images, memorabilia and home movies shot by friends and fellow musicians that help recount the compelling early days of the band-from their childhoods and the band's formation in working class Liverpool, through their initial performances in the clubs of Hamburg and The Beatles' first appearances on film.

At five minutes before midnight on January 20, 1936, King George V of England was pronounced dead. The official cause of death, bronchitis, was confirmed by Lord Bertrand Dawson, the King's personal physician. In recognition of his care for the King during the last days of his life, Lord Dawson was made a Viscount. Dawson continued his illustrious medical career right up until his death in 1945. He was mourned by the Royal family, the political class and the media. But Dawson went to his grave with a dark secret. King George V hadn't died of bronchitis. Dawson had killed him. This startling admission was made in his personal diary, released to the public in 1986.

This is a look back at the creation, and ongoing influence, of the revolutionary 1967 Beatles album, Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. When The Beatles stopped playing live in 1966, they suddenly had the time to pour all of their energy into writing and recording, creating an album that was a performance unto itself. Released in 1967, after what had been essentially a media blackout on what the band had been up to, the album was immediately a sensation and was recognised as a new chapter, not just in rock music, but in the history of all music.

The war on terror enters a new phase as home-grown lone wolves begin to strike in the US. The American military apparatus struggles to contain a threat that has moved to a new battlefield: the internet, where ISIS and other terror groups enlist and inspire individuals to commit acts of terror anywhere they can, posting instructions and even hit lists. Tragedies in Boston, San Bernardino and Orlando are stark reminders that despite all the increases in security, the threat lingers. New and unexpected allies join the counter offensive, including hackers and US businesses. But a climate of fear gives rise to more hate, and a new wave of domestic terror emerges, led by white nationalists.

He is credited with being the first clinical psychologist to present Asperger's syndrome not as something to be "fixed " but as a gift, evidenced in many of the great inventors and artists throughout history. Professor Attwood is highly regarded for his ability to connect with and bring out the talents of people with Asperger's. He describes himself as a translator between the "neurotypical" and Asperger's worlds. But while Professor Attwood has reached the top of his field, he reveals on Australian Story the personal cost of a missed diagnosis in his own family.

On July 20, 1969 an estimated 600 million people all over the world watched astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin set foot on the moon for the first time. The moonwalk inspired musicians from David Bowie and the Byrds to Parliament - Funkadelic and Sun Ra to imagine a cosmic future for mankind. However, once the Cold War space race had been won, popular interest in space exploration waned rapidly - as reflected in songs by Elton John and Gil Scott-Heron. In December 1972, NASA launched its final manned mission to the moon, and we have never gone back since. Almost half a century after the moon landing, while our deep yearning to explore the universe lives on in the realm of art and music, its most profound legacy may be the perspective it gave us on our own planet and who we are as a species.

The famous tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs was a galvanising moment for the women's movement. Billie Jean's win was an affirmation to all the women who felt underestimated as simply mothers and housewives. The music of the 1960s and '70s, from Helen Reddy to Leslie Gore to Aretha Franklin was also a kind of subversive force in delivering to women messages of strength and empowerment. The sexual revolution ushered in more provocative music that gave women permission to let loose; Loretta Lynn's The Pill was an outright ode to the wonders of contraception and how freeing it was. Feminism in music has taken many forms, just as the women's movement itself has waxed and waned over the decades. But from Pat Benatar to Salt-N-Pepa to Katy Perry, each generation of young women has found strength and solidarity in female artists who have literally given them a voice.

Ten-year-old Josh arrives at St George's having severed his finger during an accident on the school playing field. Mum Jane accompanies Josh into resus, but she has a secret - Josh has no idea that his finger has actually been cut off during the accident. Doctors now face a double challenge: to work out whether they can reattach his finger, which will require major surgery, and how and when to explain to Josh what has really happened. Meanwhile 40-year-old stonemason Guido is in minors having dropped a marble slab on his finger. His finger is wrapped up and Guido has reassured his wife Dina that it's just a little cut. But when specialist nurse Prav unravels the bandages the extent of the injury is revealed and Dina isn't happy. And 74-year-old Maggie, who's partially sighted, is brought to resus after falling over and hurting her leg.

There is barely a country in Europe that can't look back on Germanic roots, though there has never been one unified people. The term 'Germanic' actually refers to a number of tribes and clans that lived in central and northern Europe from the sixth century BC. Gaius Julius Caesar is said to have used it when talking about the Gallic war. However, the Romans were full of contempt for the Germanic peoples, Tacitus calling their home a hideous blood-curdling place full of dark woods and swamplands.

The worst terrorist attack in American history is also the least understood. It was not the action of one man - Osama bin Laden. It was the creation of a network, spanning decades. It began as a New York story, as homegrown as baseball. And while the first blood was shed in the early 1990s, the roots of the violence stretch back decades and even centuries, making the final horrendous act almost inevitable. This series will redefine our understanding of what happened, focusing primarily on the period between the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and the moment of impact on 9/11 itself. Using a tick-tock of tense cat-and-mouse narratives of terrorists and counter-terrorists, friends and foes, we follow the calamitous intersection of war and faith, natural resources and scientific progress, plane and tower. How did this happen? When did this hate begin, and why?

King Ludwig of Bavaria was gay, wildly eccentric and built fairy tale castles that today rate as Germany's leading tourist attractions. He was not a conventional man or king. His behaviour saw him declared insane and deposed from the throne, and in June 1886, his body was found in a lake south of Munich. Originally ruled as suicide, recent evidence has come to light that suggests murder. That evidence is compelling enough to have led to louder and louder calls for the king's body to be exhumed to finally discover the truth.

September 12th, 2001 was the first day of a new era in human history: the Age of Terror. The 9/11 attacks catapulted America to the front lines of a battle without rules or conventional tactics, where victory depended on decoding the DNA of an entirely new kind of warfare. After many years and thousands of lives lost, the world has been transformed by the conflict against terrorism, as nations across the globe struggle to meet the deadly and rising threat. Are we trapped in a war without end? Age of Terror seeks to answer the question by probing the historical roots of the conflict to uncover how today's terrorism has evolved and how we've fought back. This two-episode event begins with 9/11, as America wakes up to the most devastating assault ever to strike its soil. Through the lens of the attacks, we'll reveal the history of terrorist groups like Al Qaeda, its origins, motives, tactics, and ultimate decline that leads to the rise of ISIS.

This documentary looks back at events during President Barack Obama's years in office that revealed deep divisions within the United States, and the polarised America that Donald Trump inherits as president. We take an in-depth view of the partisan gridlock in Washington, the rise of populist anger on both sides of the aisle, and the racial tensions that erupted throughout the country. In this episode, we investigate the deep political divisions and bitter polarisation that grew during the Obama presidency and how the promise of change and unity collided with racial and political realities.
