The highest ranking police officer in Australia to be murdered, Assistant federal police commissioner Colin Winchester was shot twice in the head at point-blank range as he was getting out of his car outside his home in the ACT suburb of Deakin at about 9.15pm on January 10, 1989. At the time of his death Winchester was the Chief of Police in ACT Region. He had served in law enforcement for 27 years, firstly with the Australian Capital Territory Police Force and then in the Australian Federal Police after its formation in 1979. Extremely popular, he is described by his former colleagues as being strong and courageous, a man of great integrity and love; a tough, hard-working, honest yet compassionate policeman and a dedicated enemy of crime. The shock of his death and the long investigation which followed left a lasting imprint on his fellow officers as they struggled to bring the killer to justice.

On the night of May 4, 1982, 13-year-old Terry Ryan rushed into his family home in Marsden, a suburb of Brisbane, and told his mother an astonishing story. Terry said that he had been forced by two men to participate in the sexual assault and prolonged torture and murder of his best friend, 13-year-old Peter Aston. He said he had buried Aston in a shallow grave in scrubland about 60km south, over the New South Wales border near the seaside hamlet of Kingscliff. Belita Ryan immediately rang the police, and Terry retold his story to detectives of the Queensland Criminal Investigation branch. At approximately 4:45am, May 5, the detectives drove Terry and his mother over the border into New South Wales. What the police officers found in the bush almost defied their comprehension.

The story of North America's first secret agent training school, the role it played in defeating the Axis during World War II, and in the world of modern espionage - investigated through the first archaeological dig of the site; demonstrations of its training techniques; first person accounts of those who trained; and dramatic recreation of their exploits behind enemy lines. Dubbed the school of "mayhem and murder", Camp X and the schools it spawned, trained over 25,000 secret agents during the war. The investigation uncovers the camp's secret agent training manual and the role it played in forging the world of espionage, including the foundation of the CIA. Ian Fleming claimed to have trained there and the notorious Soviet mole, Kim Philby, wrote its secret training manual.

The worst terrorist attack in American history is also the least understood. It was not the action of one man - Osama bin Laden. It was the creation of a network, spanning decades. It began as a New York story, as home-grown as baseball. And while the first blood was shed in the early 1990s, the roots of the violence stretch back decades and even centuries, making the final horrendous act almost inevitable. This series will redefine our understanding of what happened, focusing primarily on the period between the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and the moment of impact on 9/11 itself. Using a tick-tock of tense cat-and-mouse narratives of terrorists and counter-terrorists, friends and foes, we follow the calamitous intersection of war and faith, natural resources and scientific progress, plane and tower. How did this happen? When did this hate begin, and why?

On a September night in 1986, two police officers climbed through a barbed-wire fence beside the F4 freeway at Minchinbury in Sydney's west. They were accompanied by two teenage boys who guided them to the edge of a shallow dam where the beams from torches outlined the body of a young woman lying in the mud. She was later identified as 19-year-old Sydney bank clerk Janine Balding. She had been abducted, raped, beaten and drowned. The shock was compounded when police arrested the gang responsible and found their youngest member was just 14 years old. The others present were a boy and girl both aged 15, a 16-year-old boy and their leader, 21-year old Stephen 'Shorty' Jamieson, who, despite his physical maturity, had the mental age of a 10-year-old. It appears the gang was seeking to impress each other with their toughness when they set out to rape a woman, selecting Janine at random.

The history of mankind is a never-ending story of change, revolution, evolution - but surely no span of a hundred years can claim to have changed the world so dramatically, so rapidly and so irreversibly as the 20th century. A century where the empires of the past crumbled to make way for new superpowers and a new age. Built on science, exploration, and a desire to express new creative possibilities. A century where the world was drawn into one war after another. But where radio, film, television, cars, planes and finally computers drew us closer together than at any other point in history. It was a century of unprecedented change. Change that was born out of the actions of individuals - what they created, what they discovered, what they destroyed. Who were the 101 people who drove the changes in every aspect of life that made the 20th century and set-up the 21st? A decade and a half since the close of the century we can take a considered look at the people most responsible for the events that changed their world and made ours. In this series we count down - from 101 to No.1 - the names of those who, in the judgement of experts, including those who contribute to the series, most influentially shaped the century and our world. The sixth episode features some major players from war and peace, from east and west. From inventors who have changed the way we live and fight to artists who have given us reasons to do both, we count through 35 to 24 and cover some of the most influential and infamous people who made the twentieth century - a long reigning monarch, a murderous dictator and the "father of the Atom Bomb". Quite a mixture!

This is the definitive story of the Charlie Hebdo massacre in January 2015, and of the three days of horror that followed, leaving 20 dead and a nation traumatised. A true ticking-clock film, the documentary will be structured tightly around the three days of terror. The keyword is immediacy, so that we feel like we're watching a drama, but where real lives are at stake, and every word is true. The film will unfold in the present tense, using UGC and police footage to take us into the heart of the action and, providing the emotional heartbeat of the film, powerful interviews with those who were there.
