In the 1930s and '40s, hundreds of female musicians toured the country in glamorous all-girl bands, while others played side by side with their male counterparts. Yet by the mid-1950s, female jazz musicians had disappeared from the music scene; their names and their contributions to music, completely forgotten. We reveal the poignant, untold stories of female jazz and big band instrumentalists and their fascinating, groundbreaking journeys from the late 1930s to the present day. These incredibly talented women endured sexism, racism, and diminished opportunities for decades, yet continued to persevere, inspire, and elevate their talents in a field that seldom welcomed them.

The interwar period is significant for its tumults of enthusiasm and illusion. Communism is a tempting alternative, and the desire for social, moral, artistic, and political revolution hangs in the air. In 1936, war erupts in Spain. Malraux and Hemingway are covering the Republicans' struggle as journalists, and photos by Capa and Gerda Taro get published in the international press, fostering a broader awareness of the conflict. In April 1937, the Guernica massacre inspires Picasso to create a monumental canvas symbolizing the violence perpetrated by Franco's supporters and by fascism more generally. The Spanish Republic is lost, and one war ends as another begins.

In episode two, The Big Bang, the new liberated sexuality spreads like wildfire to the blossoming counterculture. Slogans emerge, but no catchphrase better expresses the consciousness of the time than Make Love, Not War. At the same time, the sexual revolution is going middle class and mainstream. On Broadway, live shows like Hair revel in nudity. Suddenly topless bars and risque advertisements are commonplace, and the age-old Hollywood production code (where married couples were only shown in separate twin beds) is broken down. By the time Dustin Hoffman figures out that Mrs Robinson is seducing him, American cinema will never be the same.

When John Lennon died in December 1980, the Liverpool-born musician had been living in New York for nine years. He moved to the Big Apple following the breakup of The Beatles and the British media's relentless aversion to his wife, Yoko Ono.

This documentary follows the journey which saw him find his way back to the east coast, to Yoko, fatherhood and music.

Germans are known for their high standards and attention to detail. From early progress in the link between smoking and cancer, to triumphs in aviation - their scientists have been among the greatest in the world. This four-part series examines the effect Hitler's Nazi regime had on the scientific progress in the country - from world leaders to crumbled ruins. Science And The Swastika investigates how biology, medicine, physics and aviation fared during the Thousand Year Reich. An uncomfortable truth emerges - while some scientific work was carried out to morally repugnant ends, many German scientists actually did 'good science', rigorously conducted in a dispassionate and rational way. This troubling legacy demands that we continue to question our understanding of science and the moral responsibilities of scientists.
