When giants rise and fall. This revelatory series reveals how the behemoth that was the East India Company grew into an imperial power, and became the hotbed of corruption and greed that led to its downfall. Over the past 10 years, India and China have been among the fastest growing economies in the world. But at one time England controlled India, helping to create its major cities, and was heavily invested in China, It was England's economy and trade that dwarfed others. And it was all in the hands of the first and greatest multi-national company: the behemoth that was the East India Company. On the ground in India, Dan Snow sets out to discover the motives of those who set up the company at the beginning of the 17th-century. How did it grow into an Imperial power? What influence and impact did the Company have on the globe? A hotbed of corruption and greed, and responsible for the deaths of over one million people, just how did the Company manage to attain such power and what led to its explosive decline?

In 2004, the board of the public school in Dover, Pennsylvania ordered science teachers to read a statement to high school biology students suggesting that that is an alternative to Darwin's theory of evolution called intelligent design - the idea that life is too complex to have evolved naturally and therefore must have been designed by an intelligent agent. The teachers refused to comply. Later, parents opposed to intelligent design filed a lawsuit in US federal court accusing the school board of violating the constitutional separation of church and state. Judgement Day: Intelligent Design on Trial follows the federal case of Kitzmiller v. Dover School District and features trial re-enactments based on court transcripts and interviews with key participants, including expert scientists and Dover parents, teachers, and town officials.

Once upon a time there was a tiny sugar-producing township called Tully in Far North Queensland, Australia. Tully is renowned for its endless sugar fields and...rain. One day the townsfolk were shocked by the devastating news that Brazil had dumped its sugar on the world market. "What will we do?" they cried, "We will all be ruined." Not being one to knock back a challenge, life-time resident and Rotary Club member Ron Hunt calls a meeting with the town leaders to see what can be done to save Tully from financial rack and ruin. Ron proposes to build The World's Biggest Gumboot in honour of Tully's record rainfall of 7.98 metres in 1950.

This compelling investigative documentary exposes the US sugar industry's systematic hijacking of scientific study to bury evidence that sugar is, in fact, toxic. For 40 years, Big Sugar deflected threats to its multibillion-dollar empire through creative PR and tactics strikingly similar to the way the tobacco industry disguised the fact that its products are addictive and cause fatal illnesses.
