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.

Since 1945, there have been no less than eight wars being fought somewhere on the planet at any given time. They have rarely been proper wars - with uniformed soldiers confronting each other - more often than not they have been guerrilla wars, and they have employed some of the most terrifying tactics. In this program, we examine the origins of guerrilla warfare and how they have subsequently given birth to the global phenomenon of terrorism. Each new decade brings its own developments in this strategy of war. The 1960s saw revolutionary politics become cool and suddenly every city had its own brand of urban guerrilla. In the 1970s, the increase in cheap air travel meant that terrorists were no longer confined to committing atrocities in their own backyard. Now they were free to send a message anywhere by hijacking and blowing up planes in the full glare of the media spotlight. But nothing could compare with the far reaching potential of the centuries newest type of urban guerrilla - the cyber terrorist, armed with the potential to cripple the world at the touch of a keypad. The world has changed, and a new age begun, and however interpreted or understood, it is an age of terror.

'The Great Strategic Shift' - the name that Mao Zedong gave to the march from Jiangxi to Shaanxi in 1934 - 1935 - begins when 80,000 members of the Red Army and their followers march out of the encirclement trap set by the Nationalist forces. The first episode sets up the political situation that made such a trek necessary, and follows the march through the devastating battle at Xiangjiang River and the vital conference at Zunyi which confirmed the emergence of Mao, to the point where what remains of the marchers confront the crossing of the Dadu River.

In 1941 German armed forces overran vast swathes of Russia, Byelorussia and Ukraine. But it was not long before the local population, encouraged by Nazi brutality, took up arms against the invader. Soviet partisans, operating under the command of a Central Headquarters in Moscow, created huge 'no-go' areas for German troops, and conducted a systematic campaign of sabotage against the enemy rail network.

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.

Throughout history, there have been many viciously cruel dictators, but few as deranged as Muammar Gaddafi - the man President Reagan dubs The Mad Dog of the Middle East. For 42 years, the Libyan despot terrifies, tortures and tricks the world with one horrific act after another. This is the story of Colonel Gaddafi, the Brotherly Leader, and the Middle East's longest serving dictator.

For 30 years Joseph Stalin 'the man of steel' ruthlessly dominated the Soviet Union. Born into poverty on the fringes of the Tsarist Russian Empire, he became a gangster and then a revolutionary. His quest for absolute power transformed his nation, but at a brutal cost. His tools for advancement were famine, slavery and execution. So many millions died to secure his power that he can be accused of genocide. He made himself into a communist God, and condemned his people to live in fear for decades.

This is the story of Saddam Hussein, a man thought to be more sadistic than Hitler, and how he rules Iraq with an utter contempt for humanity for 23 years. This historical documentary looks at how the extreme pleasure he derives from limitless cruelty plays a significant part in his transformation from a violent young street thug to one of the most notorious dictators in the Middle East. How with patience throughout the 1970s he skilfully manoeuvres himself into power and the horrifically violent acts he commits in order to keep his iron grip on the nation - including genocide. And how his megalomania reaches such epic heights he believes he can get away with anything, bringing him into direct conflict with almost the entire world.

His speeches leave Italy bewitched. But behind all Benito Mussolini's bluster and posturing lies a dark heart of violence and brutality. This is the story of Il Duce, the Boss and how a young socialist bully rises and transforms to become an icon of fascism. He beats and rapes women, ruthlessly drops mustard gas on Libya and Ethiopia, becomes enthralled by Adolf Hitler and his ideas and drags his country into a war they are hopelessly unprepared for and becomes complicit in the Holocaust.

This is the story of a man with an insatiable desire for power and fame. A man raised to be a dictator who rules with sadistic cruelty. A man who let his people suffer in one of the world's worst famines while he lives the high life with imported women, booze and the world's finest foods. Its North Korea's Kim Jong-il. Stories from defectors include the rumour that he drowned his younger brother as a child, that he bugged his own father to see if he was considering someone else to take over from him, and that he had rivals shot if he thought they might stand in his way - all fell by the wayside in Kim's ruthless quest for power.

Mao Zedong was Supreme Leader of China for almost three decades. His merciless policies made him one of the most ruthless tyrants of the 20th Century. He was a sadist intoxicated by others' pain; a dictator convinced that politics had to be violent; and a man who presided over the deaths of possibly more people than Hitler and Stalin combined. This is the story of a brutal autocrat, through his reign of cruelty and revenge, to a position of authority so great, his personality cult remains to this day.

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.

This film explores how a privileged young Saudi boy born in the 1950s, becomes the founder and leader of al-Qaeda, an idol and motivator to militant Muslims around the world, and a terrorist mastermind committed to violent global jihad.

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.

As a result, the Republicans, led by Congressman Newt Gingrich gained control of both houses of Congress for the first time in decades. In addition to political problems at home, President Clinton faced military disaster in Somalia, genocide in Rwanda and ethnic cleansing in Bosnia. But as he always seemed to do, Clinton rebounded and was decisively re-elected in 1996. Just as the nation seemed to be settling into a period of genuine peace and prosperity the president was ensnared in a sex scandal with a White House intern leading to impeachment and increased political polarisation.
