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.

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.

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 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.

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.

Bill Clinton's presidency got off to a rocky start. The most consequential of his initial missteps was his inability to reform America's health care system. As a result, the Republicans, led by Congressman Newt Gingrich gained control of both houses of Congress for the first time in decades.
