By 1943, 45 sub-camps are dotted round the Auschwitz region, most providing slave labour for industrial concerns. See how the Nazis capitalised upon a sinister source of income - clothes and valuables taken from Jews. The Nazi leadership naturally intends such wealth to fill the coffers of the Third Reich in Berlin, but much of it actually stays at the camp, as the SS at Auschwitz have their fingers well and truly in the till. And despite it contravening the Nazis strict racial purity laws, sexual liaisons in the camp between the SS and prisoners are also occurring, often forcibly, in exchange for life-saving favours. There are even love affairs.

There's more to Tutankhamun's iconic treasures than meets the eye. New evidence suggests the tomb's stunning contents were meant for someone else. But who is more deserving of such opulence than Egypt's most famous king? Tutankhamun's legendary death mask is arguably the greatest treasure in history, found on the head of the king's mummified remains. Yet the mask betrays more than the king's wealth. Discrepancies between the mask and the head piece have led Egyptologist Nicholas Reeves at the University of Arizona to theorise that the mask wasn't intended for Tutankhamun, but remodelled for him. The presence of earring holes suggests it was originally intended for a woman. Now it's time to put this theory to the test.

This is the first discovery of an entire gladiator school with an adjacent cemetery for dead fighters recently found in Austria. Located in the former Roman imperial residence of Carnuntum, only a small portion of the large area has been explored - an area that was located on the important trade routes that connected east and west, north and south. At the collapse of the Roman Empire, the city was abandoned and no settlements were established, allowing researchers to study the period as it was. The gladiator school may not be the only treasure to be found on the site of the lost city of Carnuntum - there may be many, many more. (From Germany) (Documentary)

When war broke out in Europe in July 1914, people on all sides believed it would be over by Christmas. Little could they know just how wrong they were. By November 1918, ten million people had died and the political map of the world had been re-drawn. Caught up in the middle of the chaos were millions of ordinary men, women and children. Their very lives changed in ways they could never have imagined - this is their story. The centenary of the outbreak of World War I is fast approaching.

The Great War Diary will retell the story of the greatest war mankind had ever seen in a unique way - it will let viewers experience World War I solely through the eyes of those who lived it. From over 1000 very dramatic stories of the war, left behind in diaries, letters, postcards and telegrams, we have chosen the 14 most vivid and emotional from around the globe.

In August 1945 the Red Army launched an overwhelming assault against Japanese-occupied Manchuria. It came on the same day that Japan suffered its second devastating nuclear attack and proved instrumental in forcing the Japanese leadership to recognise that the war was lost. This is the fascinating untold story of the Red Army's last campaign of World War Two, which included the last battle of the war - a bloody amphibious landing on the remote Kurile Islands almost a week after Japan's surrender.

The war is at its most intense. But that intensity, measured in casualties and destruction, does not suggest victory: the western front is a bloody stalemate. In part two, there is growing industrial unrest in Australia. Families like the McGinnesses are changed by the realities of loss and turn against war as a solution. Billy Hughes faces division at home. For so long a war of attrition, movement and manoeuvre suddenly returns to the battlefield in 1918. When it all ends, in November of 1918, the soldiers return home. Their sacrifice, and the experience of those who fought beside them, those who were touched by the war in so many ways, is what changed Australia forever.

The vicious tyrant Francois 'Papa Doc' Duvalier ruthlessly dominated Haiti using violence and Voodoo. Rising from a humble country doctor, he made himself into a figure so terrifying to his people that many believed he had links with the Voodoo deity Baron Samedi, guardian of the graveyard. His private militia, the notorious Ton Ton Macoutes, became a byword for brutality, torturing and killing thousands of Haitians. He looted his country, stealing millions from some of the poorest people on earth.

A signal emitted from Berlin travels in concentric circles and encompasses the world. From the destroyed streets of Berlin a message rose: never again. The world must change. This peace ceremony was twofold. First came May 7, in the small school in Rheims, north-east France, and in the face of Russian anger, the ceremony marking May 8, thus delaying a ceasefire with Germany until May 9 (Soviet time). From May 7 to May 9, a difference is felt as it grows, and two separate blocs are formed.

We meet some of the people whose lives we will follow through the terrible four years of war that are about to change Australian society. As the first sounds of menace are heard, with the shots in far-off Sarajevo that assassinate the heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, the Coles Brothers are opening their first store in Collingwood. In rural Victoria the sons and daughters of the McGinness family support their widowed mother in a life of pastoral comfort on their dairy farm. In London Australia's only true superstar, the opera singer Nellie Melba, performs before the crowned heads of Europe. In less than six weeks the tensions and rivalries of the European powers have dragged that continent to war. And because those powers have global empires, the world is at war. Australia is at war.

An unknown chapter of Anne Frank's life has recently been uncovered. A volunteer was sorting through Holocaust manuscripts in the YIVO archives at the Institute for Jewish Research when she came upon letters written by Anne Frank's father. Otto Frank wrote dozens of letters to various contacts in the US Government desperately trying to save his family from the clutches of the Nazis, letters that were lost until now. Otto's letters and the US State Department's responses paint a picture of the world's failure to respond to the plight of Jewish refugees. In this film, Anne Franks' surviving family, Buddy Elias and Eva Schloss, relate the unknown story of the Frank family's frantic search for sanctuary. And in so doing, the film retells the Anne Frank story, a poignant reminder of the plight of a world-famous refugee who has no where to go.

In 1944 America and Britain in the west and Russia in the east began to close their pincer around Germany. But even now, the outcome was in the balance. The film explores the Allied disaster at Arnhem and the tragedy of the Warsaw uprising, when Polish freedom fighters were abandoned to their fate by Stalin. It tells the shocking story of the liberation of the death camps, when the full extent of the Holocaust became clear for the first time. The film ends with Hitler's last great gamble, as he threw all his last reserves against the oncoming Allied forces in the Ardennes. Conventional wisdom has recently changed as more and more secrets have been revealed particularly in the last five to 10 years, when documents, files and photographs have been released. Code-breaking revelations and newly released government papers on both sides of the Atlantic have added a very insightful new dimension to the understanding of this, the world's greatest ever conflict. With the very latest satellite-delivered terrain mapping and state-of-the-art graphics, this story can now be told with the very latest access to information which was not previously available.
