In this episode we examine the emergence of Arab nationalism and how those ideas were to boil over into action throughout the Arab world. We look at a new breed of Arab leaders, born out of years of frustration and dissatisfaction with colonial masters, and how they brought about change in their own countries, often by violent means. If the 1940s were the time of the Jews fulfilling their destiny, then the 1950s was to be the decade of the Arabs.

In the 1780s France was the richest nation on Earth. It also boasted an exploding national debt and an increasingly restless middle class. On July 14, 1789, a ragtag mob of Parisians stormed the fortress of the Bastille to seize the King's arms and ammunition. This set loose a decade of revolutionary ideals and a murderous cycle of carnage - the French Revolution, that would shake the very foundations of monarchy, destroy the last vestiges of feudalism, plant the seeds for modern politics, diplomacy and nationalism - and plunge an entire continent into endless warfare for a generation to come.

Richard Nixon described his career as a journey to the mountaintop and to the despair of life's deepest valley. The triumphs of his presidency were overshadowed by a scandal that forced his resignation. We present the story of a man whose own demons and resentments drove him to criminal excess. Using hours of recorded conversations and the recollections of those who worked closest to Richard Nixon, our story will expose the driven but flawed man who became America's 37th president.

In the last episode of Seven Ages of Britain, David Dimbleby looks at how the 20th century saw ordinary Britons upturning ancient power structures and class hierarchies. The catalyst was the First World War, which embroiled the whole nation and called traditional values into question. The result was an ever-growing 'democratisation' of culture, with art coming off gallery walls, becoming an instrument of self-expression at the service of the individual.

War for Europe meant war for the world. Germany gambled that Britain might risk everything to protect her Empire, even victory on the Western Front. So, to divert British resources, maverick German commanders led the British in a dance across the Pacific, Africa and the Middle East. They became legends in Germany and Britain - men like Admiral Graf von Spee, who inflicted Britain's greatest naval defeat for 250 years. The global war sucked in Africans, Chinese and Indians to serve in France. Meanwhile, the war in Africa exploited its people and left behind a wasteland but also sowed the seeds of self-determination.

Henry Kissinger, more than any other political individual, shaped the US's post-war foreign policy. With Nixon embroiled in Watergate, Kissinger was for a time the world's most powerful man. Even after leaving office he continued to act as counsellor to successive presidents as well as governments around the globe. For many though, Kissinger is implicated in war crimes allegedly committed with his knowledge in countries from Cambodia to Chile. In this program, historian Niall Ferguson interviews the world's most famed political advisor and the arch proponent of realpolitik.
