A fight on Everest? It seemed incredible. But in 2013, news channels around the world reported an ugly brawl at 21,000 feet as European climbers fled a mob of angry Sherpas. In 1953, New Zealander Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay had reached the summit in a spirit of cooperation and brave optimism. Now climbers and Sherpas were trading insults - even blows. What had happened to the happy, smiling Sherpas and their dedication in getting foreigners to the top of the mountain they hold so sacred?

Not so long ago, civilisation learned that it was no match for just a few degrees drop in temperature. Scientists call it the Little Ice Age - but its impact was anything but small. From 1300 to 1850, a period of cataclysmic cold caused havoc. It froze Viking colonists in Greenland, accelerated the Black Death in Europe, decimated the Spanish Armada, and helped trigger the French Revolution. The Little Ice Age reshaped the world in ways that now seem the stuff of fantasy - New York Harbour froze and people walked from Manhattan to Staten Island, Eskimos sailed kayaks as far south as Scotland, and two feet of snow fell on New England in June and July during "the Year Without a Summer". Could another catastrophic cold snap strike in the 21st century? Leading climatologists offer the latest theories, and scholars and historians recreate the history that could be a glimpse of things to come. Face the cold, hard truth of the past - an era that may be a window to our future.

Mt Everest - 29,000 feet - the highest point on Earth - captivating and deadly. In the 1920s to conquer Mt Everest was the greatest challenge remaining in a golden age of adventure. Everest was the edge of heaven, where many believed no human could survive. George Mallory dreamed of being the first man to climb Everest but on June 8, 1924, dressed in gabardine and hobnailed boots, he and his fellow climber, Sandy Irvine, were last seen 800 feet below the summit. Seventy-five years after Mallory and Irvine vanished, mountaineer Conrad Anker, took part in an expedition looking for their bodies high on Everest.

Where did these men and women come from? How did they disappear? From Easter Island to the Marquesas Islands, from Brussels to Los Angeles, three world-renowned archaeologists have investigated for more than 20 years, and what they discovered presents a whole new story.

David Beckham sets himself the challenge of a lifetime: playing a football match on all seven continents of the globe and getting back in time for his own star-studded UNICEF fundraising match at Old Trafford. Playing the beautiful game in some of the most challenging and remote locations of the world, David discovers how important football is to the many different people he meets and plays with and confirms some universal truths about the game itself: it's unique ability to inspire and unite people across the world. The first three games see David play in some of the countries for which he is a UNICEF ambassador: tribes in the jungles of Papua New Guinea; children from an earthquake-damaged school in Nepal and footballers from three African countries at a refugee camp in the middle of the desert near Djibouti. David flies on to Argentina where he plays in urban Buenos Aires with a community youth team from the infamous Boca Juniors then to the surreal icy landscape of Antarctica.
