Weighing in at up to 4 million times the mass of the Sun, the biggest super massive black holes have the power to rip planets apart and swallow entire stars. Their gravitational pull is so strong that nothing, not even light, can escape. And that's a problem for astronomers, because it means they're entirely invisible to any telescope. Despite these obvious obstacles, the program meets the astronomers attempting to image a black hole for the very first time and the theoretical physicists getting ever closer to unlocking their mysteries.

March 9, 1953, 5 million people attend Stalin's funeral. A godly event for one of History's biggest criminal. A revolutionary lacking in both charisma and stature, Stalin came to power almost by chance, and his 30-year reign saw him become the most Machiavellian and bloodthirsty of dictators. The man who insisted on being called 'The Father of the People' massacred his own countrymen, and was responsible for the death of some 20 million people. Soon forgetting his former ideological stance, he mercilessly crushed anyone who opposed him, in both word and deed. His camps for reform through hard labor - known as 'gulags' - turned 18 million Russians into slaves. He not only murdered his opponents but his best friends too, and even sometimes members of his own family. His cruelty knew know bounds. Through colorised archive material rich in previously unseen footage, and many accounts from the period including some from Stalin himself, this documentary tells the story of a man who turned a dream into a nightmare.
