The Qur'an has become the most ideologically influential text in the world.

But if Islam is rooted in the Qur'an, and the Qur'an is the ultimate and changeless message of God, how are these differences possible?

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 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.

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.

Lennon's involvement in the anti-Vietnam War movement prompted the US government to investigate deporting the artist, while his traumatic split with Yoko resulted in booze-fuelled exploits in Los Angeles. This documentary follows the journey which saw him find his way back to the east coast, to Yoko, fatherhood and music.

In episode two, The Big Bang, the new liberated sexuality spreads like wildfire to the blossoming counterculture.

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.
