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.

For explorers, the means to go into the mysterious depths of the world beneath the waves had always remained a dream. For military strategists it held a particularly pressing fascination. This programme tells how the submariners' vessel was developed, from the erratic experimentation of the early days up to the triumphant diving and surfacing of the modern submarine.

Their experience begins in 1895. The smell of coal burners wafts down the corridor, and a portrait of Queen Victoria hangs proudly in the school hall. Our class discover what it was like for the lucky 4 percent of children able to attend school in this period, when education was still seen as a preserve for the rich, but a handful of schools offered affordable places to ordinary families for the first time. With the death of Queen Victoria in 1902, the pupils and teachers enter into the Edwardian era. Segregation is common place in schools at this time, so our pupils' are separated for gender-specific learning. In 1904, the class and teachers gather with friends and family to celebrate Empire Day, a pageant common in schools throughout the Edwardian era. As their time-travels draw to a close in 1914, and the pupils reflect on their Victorian experience, the school holds a prize-giving ceremony.

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.

In 1962, JFK declared that an American shall go to the Moon before the end of the decade and the Country is doing its best to make the dream comes true. After the Gemini program, which allowed NASA to catch up with its Soviet rival, the US launches the Apollo program. The program experienced a rough beginning with the drama of Apollo 1 - where three astronauts died during an exercise - but finally led to the triumph of Apollo 11. On July 20, 1969, the American, Neil Armstrong, was the first man to step on the Moon. The success was celebrated all over the world.

When Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin took their first steps on the moon in July 1969, the world was suddenly split into two categories - those who believe in the Apollo 11 landings, and those who do not. We will investigate both sides of this debate - 52 percent of the British public still believe the landings were an elaborate hoax designed to trump Russia in the space race. We will search for a definitive answer by recreating the moon landing for ourselves, testing the various competing theories against each other. Featuring interviews with leading experts, conspiracy theorists, archive material and highly detailed reconstructions of the landing, we put this debate to bed once and for all.

Apollo astronauts and engineers tell the inside story of Apollo 8, the first manned mission to the moon. The US space program suffered a bitter setback when Apollo 1 ended in a deadly fire during a pre-launch run-through. In disarray, and threatened by the prospect of a Soviet Union victory in the space race, NASA decided upon a radical and risky change of plan: turn Apollo 8 from an earth-orbit mission into a daring sprint to the moon while relying on untried new technologies. Fifty years after the historic mission, the Apollo 8 astronauts and engineers recount the feats of engineering that paved the way to the moon.

Leader Profile The election is over and Australia now knows who their prime minister is. We'll take a closer look at who they are, what their policies are, and what we might expect from them over the next three years. Bob Hawke Remembered Australians from all sides of politics have paid tribute to the 23rd prime minister, Bob Hawke, who died on Thursday at the age of 89. We look back at the life and leadership of one of Australia's most colourful and celebrated politicians. Digital Footprint Lots of would-be-politicians were given a lesson during the election about checking their digital footprint! Several lost their jobs when controversial posts were made public. Experts say it's a good lesson for all of us to be aware of what we put online and how it might affect us later in life. Wesak Wesak - also known as Vesak, Buddha Jayanti, Buddha Purnima or Buddha Day, is seen by many Buddhists to mark the birth, enlightenment and death of the Buddha. As part of our series on religious holidays in Australia, we ask a group of Buddhist kids about their religion and what Wesak means to them. Gibb Challenge Kids We meet a group of intrepid young cyclists who are about to take part in the Gibb Challenge. It's a 660km race through the Kimberley which raises money for the Royal Flying Doctor Service. The Gibb Groms tell us why they're aiming to be the youngest team in the history to complete the Challenge.
