The Qur'an has become the most ideologically influential text in the world. Muslims believe it to be the word of God, as first revealed to the Prophet Muhammad in a cave in the Arabian Desert, nearly fifteen hundred years ago. Today Islam is a religion of vast dimensions. Well over a billion people from the Americas to China, from India to the southern tip of Africa, are Muslim. Yet within this single universe of belief, there are profound differences. 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?

This series examines milestones from the 1990s, including the rise of the internet and the impeachment of President Bill Clinton. In television the 1990s was a decade of the fantastic and the familiar. The gang at Cheers hoisted their last drink, but the doctors at ER began to save lives. The Simpsons got a show of their own, while Beavis and Butthead lived in a world of their own. Storylines got younger (Freaks and Geeks, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and formats more daring (Northen Exposure, The Daily Show).

The 1990s was a decade of great musical diversity. Genre begat subgenre to appeal to nearly every musical taste. Grunge, alternative and indie rock were dominant. The focus of hip-hop migrated west with gangsta rap. Country music exploded commercially as artists like Garth Brooks and Shania Twain began selling out stadiums and the Nashville Network (TNN) hit the airwaves. Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Oasis and the Foo Fighters were among the most influential rock bands of the era. Alanis Morissette, Sheryl Crow and Lauryn Hill displayed their unique voices in song writing and performance. Tupac Shakur, Snoop Dogg, Dr Dre, Notorious BIG and others elevated hip-hop to perhaps the most influential genre of them all.

Race relations are a perpetual and prominent part of the American political and cultural conversation, and never more so than in the 1990s. Beginning with the unavoidable racial overtone of the Clarence Thomas/Anita Hill hearings, the '90s saw a succession of individuals and events - Al Sharpton and the Crown Height riots, Rodney King and the LA riots, OJ Simpson and his murder trial - that exposed how raw race relations in America remained. New York elected its first black mayor (David Dinkins) and Louisiana nearly elected a former Grand Wizard of the Klu Klux Klan as governor (David Duke). LA street gangs exerted cultural influence over music, movies and fashion. Even two of President Bill Clinton's chief legislative achievements, The Crime Bill of 1994 and the Welfare Reform bill of 1996 were laden with racial politics. Progress was made in America's struggle with racial equality but a price was paid.

Beginning with the stand-offs at Ruby Ridge, Idaho and Waco, Texas, politically inspired violence plagued America throughout the 1990s. CIA headquarters in Virginia and the World Trade Centre in New York were sites of terrorist attacks. The anti-abortion group the Army of God conducted a murderous campaign that included planting a bomb at the 1996 Olympics. The Unabomber, Ted Kaczynski, terrorised the nation with his lethal mailings. In the worst domestic terrorist attack to date, Timothy McVeigh killed 168 fellow Americans, including 19 children, when he bombed a federal office building in Oklahoma City. In a horrific attempt to copycat this tragedy, two Colorado high school students staged a massacre of their own on the anniversary of both Waco and Oklahoma City. And it was in 1998 that most Americans first learned of Osama bin Laden and his newly formed organisation, Al Qaeda.
