In November 1945, in the German city of Nuremberg, the victors of the Second World War began the first international war crimes trial. The choice of the city was significant as it was here that the National Socialist Party held its annual rallies. The 21 defendants came from very different background. Some, like Hitler's chosen successor Hermann Goering, were senior politicians - their responsibility clear. Others were there because senior party leaders Heinrich Himmler, head of the feared SS, and Joseph Goebbels, head of propaganda - had killed themselves rather than face capture and trial. Their deputies or juniors stood on trial instead of them. But most of them were regarded by the western public, rightly or wrongly, as key playmakers in a system that had brought war to Europe and cost the lives of 50 million people.

Allowed unprecedented access to Glass's working process, family life, spiritual teachers and long time collaborators, Hicks gives us a unique glimpse behind the curtain into the life of a surprising and complex man.

Though aided by a team of friends and accomplices, Petit was faced with numerous extraordinary challenges along the way: he had to find a way to bypass the World Trade Centre's security, smuggle the heavy steel cable and rigging equipment into the towers, then pass the wire between the two rooftops and anchor the wire at each end.

There are schools that cater for pregnant girls or young mothers, but nowhere that integrates them into the general student population like Plumpton does. The idea, pioneered by principal Glen Sargeant, was to stop pregnant girls being forced out of school and onto welfare.

The very British Tim Mackintosh-Smith, an Oxford University classicist who has called the Middle East his home for 25 years, takes us on a unique 75,000 mile journey through 40 countries in the 700-year-old footsteps of medieval explorer Ibn Battutah. This is the story of one of the greatest journeys of all time. In 1325, shortly after the end of the Crusades, a young Moroccan Muslim called Ibn Battutah set out on a pilgrimage to Mecca. It was to become an odyssey from one end of the known world to the other. In all, he travelled 75,000 miles - more than three times the distance Marco Polo covered.

Every cell is precisely in its place, every link between neurons carefully organised. Nothing is random, nothing arbitrary.

Autumn, 1944: In the late fall of 1944 American soldiers suffer terrible losses when they are ordered into the forbidding and fiercely defended terrain of the Hurtgen Forest and the Vosges Mountains. In the Central Pacific, to the delight of audiences back home, General MacArthur returns to the island of Leyte. But months of bloody fighting lie ahead before the Philippine Islands - and the people imprisoned on them - can be liberated The War, a series directed and produced by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, tells the story of the Second World War through the personal accounts of a handful of men and women from four quintessentially American towns. The series explores the most intimate human dimensions of the greatest cataclysm in history, a worldwide catastrophe that touched the lives of every family on every street in every town in America and demonstrates that in extraordinary times, there are no ordinary lives. Throughout the series, the indelible experience of combat is brought vividly to life as veterans describe what it was like to fight and kill and see men die at places like Monte Cassino and Anzio and Omaha Beach; the Hurtgen Forest and the Vosges Mountains and the Ardennes; and on the other side of the world at Guadalcanal and Tarawa and Saipan; Peleliu and the Philippine Sea and Okinawa. In all of the battle scenes, dramatic historical footage and photographs are combined with extraordinarily realistic sound effects to give the film a terrifying, visceral immediacy. The film honours the bravery, endurance, and sacrifice of the generation of Americans who lived through what will always be known simply as The War.
