This week it is the turn of the 18th century, a time when the triumph of commerce led to the emergence of a new 'middle' class: a group of people who craved pleasure and novelty, and developed their own tastes in art. The result was a golden age in painting with Hogarth, Reynolds and Gainsborough re-inventing the British style. The story ends in 1805 with the burial of Horatio Nelson, a commoner, at the heart of St Paul's: the supremacy of the middle class assured.

The Great Fire of Rome was the single most destructive force ever encountered by the Roman Empire, lasting nine days and leaving 10 of Rome's 14 districts burnt beyond recognition. The emperor Nero was widely believed to have started the fire as a means of destroying his aristocratic adversaries and clearing space for his Golden Palace. Unfortunately, he did not live long enough to see his divine vision realised. He bowed under the pressure of public condemnation and probable punishment, and committed suicide. Two thousand years later, vital questions surrounding the fire remain unanswered. Was the fire an act of arson or an accident, and who really started it?

The final chapter in Churchill's career begins with the end of World War II. A financially depleted Britain was left struggling to keep up with two new superpowers, America and Russia. Opinion polls conducted through and after the war showed a gap between the esteem in which Churchill as a war leader was held and the way Churchill as a potential peacetime Prime Minister was viewed. An election was called and Churchill lost; now he had to get on with the humdrum task of leading a shadow cabinet. This did not interest Churchill and much of the ordinary business was left to his Deputy Anthony Eden.

The incredible story of how Scotland became the Roman Empire's toughest military challenge. At the height of its power, Rome boasted the domination of millions of people and vast tracts of lands as far east as Syria, Egypt in the south, Spain in the west and the Germanic wildernesses in the north. In 43 AD Emperor Claudius' forces invaded and conquered Britain, but there was one small part of these barbarian lands that wasn't so easy to crush.
