Fifteen years ago, German historian Michael Hesemann set out to establish the authenticity of one of the most important Christian relics ever found. Called the 'Titulus Crucis', or 'Title of the Cross', it's claimed that this small piece of wood hung on the cross of Christ announcing his name and crime. It's now displayed in a church in Rome, but is it real or a mediaeval fake?

We lift the lid on some of history's great mysteries by tunnelling deeper, travelling wider, looking more closely, asking harder questions and searching for evidence with more determination than ever before. We are taken to places far and wide and will encounter conspiracy theories, cover-ups, strange phenomena, unexplained happenings and mysterious findings - in short, a whole host of unusual goings on that have had a massive bearing on how we view history today. We know that the Vatican Archives hold the personal documents of past Popes and that they house important historical pieces such as Galileo's trial transcript, King Henry VIII's annulment request - even letters written by Abraham Lincoln. But what else is hidden away in the Vatican Library - a place that is out of bounds even to cardinals? Why is this historical treasure trove so shrouded in secrecy?

He is one of the most important men to have ever walked the earth but between the ages of 12 and 30 the whereabouts of Jesus Christ are unknown. For 2000 years, scholars and believers have debated why two decades of the life of Christ is a blank slate. The answers may be found in a most obvious source, The Bible. Found in the pages of The New Testament are clues that shed light on Christ's life during The Missing Years, what he thought, who he knew and how he lived.

From its origins as a nomadic Turkoman tribe from central Asia, the Ottoman Empire became one of the world's most impressive super powers, dominating swathes of the Middle East, Northern Africa and South Eastern Europe for some 500 years. As a leader of the Islamic world, it's incursions into Europe were often seen as a religious offensive, sparking a titanic power struggle between the forces of Christianity and Islam. The reality, we discover, was much more complex. In this timely series, Presenter Julian Davison, takes us on a swashbuckling journey across Turkey, the Balkans and Russia, charting the Ottoman Empire's extraordinary military campaigns into Europe and witnessing, first hand, many of its legacies. In this first episode we follow the Ottomans rise from obscure beginnings as a nomadic tribe in Anatolia to their game changing conquest of the famed Byzantine capitol of Orthodox Christianity, Constantinople. Julian's journey begins in Bursa, the Ottomans first capitol city and one of Turkey's historical gems, where he explores the wealth of early Ottoman architecture and examines the legends, cultural traditions and unique circumstances that helped give birth to an empire.

From its origins as a nomadic Turkoman tribe from central Asia, the Ottoman Empire became one of the world's most impressive super powers, dominating swathes of the Middle East, Northern Africa and South Eastern Europe for some 500 years. As a leader of the Islamic world, it's incursions into Europe were often seen as a religious offensive, sparking a titanic power struggle between the forces of Christianity and Islam. The reality, we discover, was much more complex. In this timely series, Presenter Julian Davison, takes us on a swashbuckling journey across Turkey, the Balkans and Russia, charting the Ottoman Empire's extraordinary military campaigns into Europe and witnessing, first hand, many of its legacies. Our third and final episode looks at the Ottoman Empire's slow decline in the face of Russian expansion and explores the complex alliances it would forge with European powers in an effort to survive. The map of Europe would be radically redrawn and the Ottoman Empire would come to a humiliating end, giving birth to the modern Turkish Republic.
