Invoked against the excesses of royal power in 1215, Magna Carta is perhaps the most famous constitutional document in history. Though very much a product of its time, it has inspired many others, including the American Declaration of Independence and the UN's Universal Declaration of Human Rights. David Starkey explores its deployment, its contribution to making everyone - even the monarch subject to the rule of law, and how this quintessentially English document migrated to the North American colonies and eventually became the foundation of the US constitution.

British presenter and commentator David Dimbleby reveals the seven great ages of British culture, uncovering and exploring over 2000 years of extraordinary artistic achievements. This is the story of British art in the Middle Ages, spanning from the murder of Thomas Becket in 1170 to the death of Richard II in 1400. It was an age defined by worship: whether worship of God, the King, or one's lady love. David Dimbleby looks at the finest creations of the medieval church, like the stained glass of Canterbury Cathedral and the colourful Bury Bible, and is winched 40 feet off the ground to see a rare surviving church Doom close up.
