The directorial debut of Mike Myers, aka Austin Powers, is a star-packed look at a legendary showbiz figure. Shep Gordon is the quintessential talent agent, a mover and a shaker who fell into the job when he met Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix on his first day in LA. His first client was Alice Cooper, his second Pink Floyd. From the weird (he once shared custody of a cat with Cary Grant) to the sublime (he once dated Sharon Stone), his stories are endlessly entertaining. His clients have some tales to tell too - Michael Douglas, Teddy Pendergrass, Sylvester Stallone, Blondie to name a few. Gordon stays on good terms with them all - including playing golf with Alice Cooper. Above it all, everyone says he's a nice guy, a person of integrity and honour, and this spirit shines throughout Myers' lively debut.

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.

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.

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.
