Explore the colourful history of this popular, influential and distinctly American form of entertainment, from the first one-ring show at the end of the 18th century to 1956, when the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey big top was pulled down for the last time. A transformative place for reinvention, where young women could become lion tamers and young men travelled the world as roustabouts, the circus allowed people to be liberated from the roles assigned by society and find an accepting community that had eluded them elsewhere. Drawing upon a vast and richly visual archive, and featuring a host of performers, historians and aficionados, The Circus brings to life an era when Circus Day would shut down a town, its stars were among the most famous people in the country, and multitudes gathered to see the improbable and the impossible, the exotic and the spectacular. Through the intertwined stories of several of the most innovative and influential impresarios of the late 19th century, including PT Barnum, James Bailey and the five Ringling Brothers, the series reveals the circus as a phenomenon created by a rapidly expanding and increasingly industrialised nation. It explores how its 'dangerous' and 'exotic' attractions revealed the country's notions about race and Western dominance, and shows how the circus subverted prevailing standards of 'respectability' with its unconventional, titillating and 'freakish' entertainments.

Arthur Phillip is arguably the most important person in Australia's history. The commander of the First Fleet and the founding Governor of what would grow into Australia, Phillip is - according to prominent historian Jonathan King - this nation's equivalent to George Washington. And yet for such an influential person, so little is widely known about Arthur Phillip. Who was this man, what did he do before the First Fleet, and why did he accept the enormous challenge of sailing half way around the globe to found a new colony largely populated by Britain's cast-offs and criminals?

Traces the long and ferocious rivalry between Coke and Pepsi, centred on the 'New Coke' debacle of 1985. For almost a hundred years, Coke had been the undisputed leader in the multibillion-dollar global soda industry - stodgy, predictable, but indisputably top dog - while Pepsi had been the upstart No.2, forever poking at its big brother with cutting edge advertising. But in 1985, in a stranger-than-fiction twist, Coca-Cola's executives took a step so daring that no-one in either company could believe it: they changed the formula of the most popular beverage on the planet.
