The history of mankind is a never-ending story of change, revolution, evolution - but surely no span of a hundred years can claim to have changed the world so dramatically, so rapidly and so irreversibly as the 20th century. A century where the empires of the past crumbled to make way for new superpowers and a new age. Built on science, exploration, and a desire to express new creative possibilities. A century where the world was drawn into one war after another. But where radio, film, television, cars, planes and finally computers drew us closer together than at any other point in history. It was a century of unprecedented change. Change that was born out of the actions of individuals - what they created, what they discovered, what they destroyed. Who were the 101 people who drove the changes in every aspect of life that made the 20th century and set-up the 21st? A decade and a half since the close of the century we can take a considered look at the people most responsible for the events that changed their world and made ours. In this series we count down - from 101 to No.1 - the names of those who, in the judgement of experts, including those who contribute to the series, most influentially shaped the century and our world. The sixth episode features some major players from war and peace, from east and west. From inventors who have changed the way we live and fight to artists who have given us reasons to do both, we count through 35 to 24 and cover some of the most influential and infamous people who made the twentieth century - a long reigning monarch, a murderous dictator and the "father of the Atom Bomb". Quite a mixture!

The Ku Klux Klan (KKK) - or just the 'Klan'- first played a violent role against African Americans in the South during the Reconstruction Era of the 1860s. Members made their own white costumes: robes, masks, and conical hats, designed to be outlandish and terrifying, and to hide their identities. They became infamous for their parades with large burning crosses, and the lynching and hanging of their victims. Today, many sources classify the Klan as a subversive or terrorist organisation. In April 1997, FBI agents arrested four members of the True Knights of the Ku Klux Klan in Dallas for conspiracy to commit robbery and to blow up a natural gas processing plant. In 1999, the city council of Charleston, South Carolina passed a resolution declaring the Klan to be a terrorist organisation. It is estimated to have around 150 Klan "chapters" with between 5000 and 8000 members.

On a Sunday afternoon in 2012, Donna Thistlethwaite told her partner she was going out to buy groceries. Instead she drove to Brisbane's Story Bridge and tried to end her life in the wintery waters of the Brisbane River. Donna was a popular, positive-thinking, successful career woman with a loving partner and a young son. She had no history of the mental illnesses that are commonly associated with risk of suicide. Her world unravelled in about 10 days. Donna was lucky enough to get a second chance at life, thanks to a confluence of "miracles" that helped her survive. Australian Story tells a cautionary tale which shows that, with the right set of circumstances and the wrong kind of thinking, suicidal thoughts can happen to just about anyone and how seeking help can save a life. By sharing her story, Donna hopes that anyone feeling suicidal will see that life can be "great" again and reach out for help.

Rising unemployment, economic turmoil, attacks on immigrants, mainstream politicians who don't listen to popular fears, voters turning to extremist parties; it's the 21st-century but it could be the 1930s. The election successes of the neo-Nazi parties in Europe reveal that voters are hungry again for populist politicians who express their anger towards failing governments; but do people really want an authoritarian, nationalist government in power? This program reveals how the National Socialists exploited the economic turmoil of their time, rose to power in Germany in 1933 and then led their nation into a nightmare of brutality, genocide and military defeat. This documentary series tells the true story of the rise of the Nazis through archive film footage, interviews and dramatic reconstructions, and carries on the chilling story after the war to chart the current rise of the neo-Nazis. This program is a warning from the past that is only too relevant today.

The first in the trilogy covers the period Chaplin spent with the Mutual Film Company, for whom he made 12 two-reel comedies. Chaplin's early working methods are unknown, thanks to his habit of ordering his outtakes burned. Happily, he was not always obeyed and hundreds of cans of uncut rushes from the Mutual period have been made available by Raymond Rohauer. By assembling them in slate order, Brownlow and Gill were able to discover the progression of Chaplin's ideas. Working with no script, he developed his story in front of the camera. We follow Chaplin through the hard work of improvising a film, only to watch him throw it all away and start again. This is perhaps the first example of cinema archaeology and the acquisition of these outtakes - unseen for nearly seventy years - represents "the coup of the century".

For some the word revolutionary might only be a title but for others, such as Castro and Ghandi, it is far more real.

Labor Senator Sam Dastyari was a rising star in the halls of Parliament House, until a political donations scandal brought him undone last year. The colourful 34-year-old senator came to Australia as a four-year-old, having fled the religious regime in Iran with his sister and parents. He was a gifted student and joined the Labor Party at just 16, enjoying a meteoric rise through the party all the way to the shadow ministry. But when news broke that he had asked a business with links to the Chinese government to pay an office travel bill, the senator became embroiled in a deepening scandal which cost him his spot on the opposition frontbench. Sam Dastyari talks exclusively to Australian Story, answering lingering questions about his conduct.

"Enjoy the war, for the peace will be savage", was apparently a macabre joke circulating in the German military towards the end of World War II. This documentary shows us just how prescient it would prove, charting the cruelties that would follow the end of conflict. Man's inhumanity to man would continue long after the war itself had formally ended.

Traditionally, Eden has been seen as a mythological place, an abstract paradise. Genesis is intriguingly specific about its location and archaeologists now believe they may have zeroed in on the place which inspired Eden - the Fertile Crescent, particularly the area which is now in the south of modern day Turkey. For Dr Elaine Padilla, this area matches perfectly the description of where the Garden of Eden was. Using modern satellite imagery a clear contender emerges. Is this the real location which inspired the Eden narrative?

Alfred's grandson Aethelstan fulfils the family plan and creates a kingdom of all England. Travelling from Devon to Cumbria, Scotland and Rome, Michael Wood tells the tale of Aethelstan's wars, his learning and his lawmaking. The film shows how he created a national coinage and traces the origin of the English Parliament to the king's new assembly politics. But there's also a dark side, with later legends that the king had his brother drowned at sea. In his last desperate struggle, Aethelstan defeated a huge invasion of Vikings and Scots in what became known as the Anglo-Saxon 'Great War'. Michael Wood argues, Aethelstan was one of the greatest English monarchs, and with his grandfather Alfred, his father Edward and his aunt Aethelflaed, a member of our most remarkable royal family, and 'even more than the Tudors, the most gifted and influential rulers in British history'.

Norma Jeane Mortenson battles a lonely and loveless existence with an absent mother. Despite the odds, Norma Jeane blossoms into a funny, smart and ambitious woman and soon reinvents herself to become the symbol of an era. She revels in stardom, yet remains a fragile artist, desperate for the approval and protection of men. The outside world never truly sees or understands the real Marilyn, a woman so different from her public persona. As her fame grows, all three of her marriages crumble beneath her quite publicly, including her relationships with Joe DiMaggio and Arthur Miller. Ultimately, Marilyn could never control her inner demons and the onslaught of mental illness inherited from her mother, Gladys - a woman she loves, hates and wants desperately to save. Although her movie studio told the world that Marilyn's mother was dead, it is the great secret of Marilyn's life that Gladys remained a vital and troubling part of her world. As Marilyn cares for her mother, her obsession with President John F. Kennedy drives her over the edge and, ultimately, into an insane asylum. Still, as Marilyn Monroe soldiers on, she gives the performance of her life, successfully hiding her darkest secrets from the world.
