The Ridgeway is the oldest continuously used road in Europe, dating back to the Stone Age. Situated in southern England, travelled by our Neolithic ancestors, it's at least 5000 years old. Over the centuries Celts, Romans, Romano Britons, Saxons and Vikings fought along its heights. The ancient track starts at a lay-by on the busy A4, west of Marlborough, Wiltshire, a nondescript spot to the modern motorist but significant in terms of prehistory.

Presenter Michael Buerk looks at how the Victorians created what is now known as the modern home, exploring the huge rise in house-building during the period. He travels to Fakenham, Norfolk, to visit the last remaining gasworks in England, and discovers how the Victorians mastered the art of producing 'town gas' from coal. He also investigates how the kitchen was transformed with the advent of gas cookers, as more complex meals including the Sunday roast steadily became the norm across the nation.

The 6 million-tonne Great Pyramid of Giza is the last surviving wonder of the ancient world. How did the Egyptians engineer the mighty pharaoh Khufu's tomb so precisely, with none of today's surveying and power tools? Who were the thousands of labourers who raised the stones? Were they slaves or volunteers, and how were they housed, fed, and organised? Decoding the Great Pyramid presents the latest evidence from groundbreaking archaeological research that has transformed our understanding of the ancient world's most ambitious engineering project, revealing a 'lost city' and intimate details of the lives of the labourers and officials who toiled on the vast construction. Amazingly, French archaeologists recently found the logbook of a labour team leader that delivered limestone blocks to build the Great Pyramid, yielding crucial insights into the planning and logistics behind the operation. Beyond these construction secrets, Decoding the Great Pyramid traces how mobilising the colossal labour and resources invested in the monument transformed ancient Egypt, uniting a nation behind the common goal of ensuring eternity for the pharaoh and continuing prosperity for everyone in this life and the next.

The fifth of a series of documentary films that have followed the lives of fourteen British children since 1964, when they were seven years old. The children were selected to represent the range of socio-economic backgrounds in Britain at that time, with the explicit assumption that each child's social class predetermines their future. Director Michael Apted returns twenty-eight years on as the subjects, now aged thirty-five, talk about their lives and their hopes for the future.

The first of a series of documentary films that have followed the lives of 14 British children since 1964, when they were seven years old. Acting upon the venerable Jesuit edict "Give me a child until he is seven, and I will give you the man", director Paul Almond and his team of assistants (including later director Michael Apted) selected a group of children to represent the range of socio-economic backgrounds in Britain at that time, with the explicit assumption that each child's social class predetermines their future.
