In Indonesia, the tobacco industry is virtually unregulated. Over two-thirds of all men are smokers and it's commonplace for children as young as six to take up the habit. Investigating this phenomenon in Malang, VICE visits a clinic that promises cures to a plethora of modern ailments through tobacco and smoking. Heroin is the most addictive drug on earth, and some people will do anything to kick the habit. Enter Ibogaine, a drug made out of the African iboga root, whose intense, hallucinogenic properties make it a Type-A felony drug. But many swear it's the most effective way to kick heroin addiction, especially when combined with a ritual that involves face paint and chanting.

In the most famous horror story of all time, young Victor Frankenstein (Kenneth Branagh) leaves Geneva for university, leaving behind his adopted sister (Helena Bonham Carter). Inspired by the sinister Professor Waldman, Victor becomes obsessed and reclusive as he experiments with the possibilities of man-made creation. But one night as his Creature (Robert de Niro) struggles to life, Victor realises too late the full horror of what he's done, and vainly tries to destroy his creation. Believing the Creature has perished of cholera, Victor returns home and makes plans for his marriage. Alone, despised and driven by a rage born of emotional agony, the Creature sets off to find his maker, and so begins the nightmare that will engulf Victor Frankenstein and all those he loves.

In the 1780s France was the richest nation on Earth. It also boasted an exploding national debt and an increasingly restless middle class. On July 14, 1789, a ragtag mob of Parisians stormed the fortress of the Bastille to seize the King's arms and ammunition. This set loose a decade of revolutionary ideals and a murderous cycle of carnage - the French Revolution, that would shake the very foundations of monarchy, destroy the last vestiges of feudalism, plant the seeds for modern politics, diplomacy and nationalism - and plunge an entire continent into endless warfare for a generation to come.

Pompeii: one of the most famous volcanic eruptions in history. We know how its victims died, but this film sets out to answer another question - how did they live? Gleaning evidence from an extraordinary find, Cambridge professor and Pompeii expert Mary Beard provides new insight into the lives of the people who lived in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius before its cataclysmic eruption. Using the latest forensic techniques it is now possible to determine what those who perished in the disaster ate and drank, where they came from, what diseases they suffered, how rich they were and, perhaps even more astonishingly, the details of their sex lives. Mary takes us on journey from the cellar to a small ancient town which nevertheless boasted more than 50 fast food joints, dozens of rowdy bars, a 200-foot-long swimming pool and even its own brothel. The film opens the lid on this most famous of ancient towns to reveal Pompeii as it's never been seen before.
