The Tudors eventually triumph, and carry the crown of England to its peak. Then the House of Stuart takes the throne, uniting England and Scotland but eventually mishandling both countries.

In 1815, Napoleon was taken to the remote island of St Helena in the Atlantic Ocean, a prisoner of the British. It had taken just a year for the monarchies of Europe, the anti-Napoleonic powers of the world, to destroy him. This final episode charts the fall of Napoleon, a key defining moment in global history. He trusted the Tsar of Russia - but the Tsar reneged on their deal. He sought revenge by invading Russia in 1812 - but the campaign was a disaster. He sought to defend France against her enemies - but made some grave, and ultimately suicidal military misjudgements.

This is the true story of the biggest and bloodiest suicide campaign in history. In 1945, Operation Ten-Go (Operation Heaven) lasted four months, involving more than 3000 planes, hundreds of rocket bombs, suicide ships, human torpedoes and the world's biggest battleship The Yamato. More than 7000 Japanese died, 400 Allied ships were hit and 5000 Allied sailors were killed in the largest suicide attack in history. Stylised re-enactments of the Kamikaze in action give an intense and visceral feel of what it was like for the pilots and sailors involved in the attacks. Photo real CGI re-enacts the horror of a Kamikaze attack. Newly discovered Japanese letters and diaries challenge the stereotype of the Japanese pilots as blood crazed, fanatical patriots who were happy to die. The programme includes never before seen Japanese archive film of Kamikaze training and preparations for attack and original colour film of The Day of the Kamikaze.

This docu-drama tells the story of the Battle of Waterloo, one of the most famous military campaigns in history. Within four days it changed the face of Europe, ending the systematic use of arms and the French domination of the Continent. In 1815, Austria, Prussia, Russia and the United Kingdom had allied themselves to end the rule of one of the greatest commanders and statesmen in history, Napoleon Bona-parte. At this point, he was considered a military genius, and was the ruler of most Western European countries. Hour by hour, even minute by minute in some cases, each decisive event of the battle is depicted. Historians discuss contradictions and inexplicable behaviour, to separate myth from truth, based on the most recent research findings. Beyond the historical facts, we discover how the Waterloo Campaign was experienced by the men involved, its key figures; Napoleon, the Duke of Wellington (the Allies' Field Marshal) and Blucher (Head of the Prussian Army), members of chiefs-of-staff and by the soldiers in both camps.

For 30 years Joseph Stalin 'the man of steel' ruthlessly dominated the Soviet Union. Born into poverty on the fringes of the Tsarist Russian Empire, he became a gangster and then a revolutionary. His quest for absolute power transformed his nation, but at a brutal cost. His tools for advancement were famine, slavery and execution. So many millions died to secure his power that he can be accused of genocide. He made himself into a communist God, and condemned his people to live in fear for decades.

This is the story of Saddam Hussein, a man thought to be more sadistic than Hitler, and how he rules Iraq with an utter contempt for humanity for 23 years. This historical documentary looks at how the extreme pleasure he derives from limitless cruelty plays a significant part in his transformation from a violent young street thug to one of the most notorious dictators in the Middle East. How with patience throughout the 1970s he skilfully manoeuvres himself into power and the horrifically violent acts he commits in order to keep his iron grip on the nation - including genocide. And how his megalomania reaches such epic heights he believes he can get away with anything, bringing him into direct conflict with almost the entire world.

Stories from defectors include the rumour that he drowned his younger brother as a child, that he bugged his own father to see if he was considering someone else to take over from him, and that he had rivals shot if he thought they might stand in his way - all fell by the wayside in Kim's ruthless quest for power.

Mao Zedong was Supreme Leader of China for almost three decades. His merciless policies made him one of the most ruthless tyrants of the 20th Century. He was a sadist intoxicated by others' pain; a dictator convinced that politics had to be violent; and a man who presided over the deaths of possibly more people than Hitler and Stalin combined. This is the story of a brutal autocrat, through his reign of cruelty and revenge, to a position of authority so great, his personality cult remains to this day.

Was there widespread collaboration? Did the civilian authorities actively help the Germans to round up Jews? Was there any resistance in the Islands and, if so, who were the resistors? And why did Britain abandon the Islands so completely to their fate and in such strange circumstances? These programmes attempt to answer some of these questions by using archive film footage, talking to the historians, expert in this subject and most importantly by letting the survivors of that awful time speak for themselves.

The day that changed the world forever. The nuclear bomb dropped on Hiroshima heralded the dawn of a new era. Its detonation not only killed over 100,000 people but also signified both the final chapter of World War Two and the beginning of the nuclear age. Armed conflict, international politics and the security of all mankind would never be the same again. Through a detailed retelling of the events before, during and after the dropping of the bomb, this film unravels the compelling story of one of the 20th century's defining moments and reveals the far-reaching consequences of the explosion, both in Hiroshima itself and for the world at large. From the rooms of the world's most powerful leaders, both Allied and Japanese, to inside the planes sent on the fateful mission to the devastated streets of Hiroshima in the hours after the attack, it explores the crucial moments, the key locations, and the pivotal players.

Recorded live from Shakespeare's Globe Theatre. The Tudor Court is locked in a power struggle between its nobles and the Machiavellian Cardinal Wolsey, the King's first minister and the most conspicuous symbol of Catholic power in the land. Wolsey's ambition knows no bounds and when his chief ally, Queen Katherine, interferes in the King's romance with Anne Bullen, he brings gigantic ruin upon himself, the Queen and centuries of English obedience to Rome. Famous in its own day as Shakespeare's most sumptuous and spectacular play, Henry VIII is a gorgeous pageant of masques and royal ceremony; a blaze of fireworks, cannon fire, red satin and cloth of gold. But within the passages of grandeur works the mind of the mature Shakespeare: psychological and political insight, language of great depth and power and, in the figures of Wolsey and Katherine, two of his most vivid and memorable characters.
