Don Wildman takes a look back at the series. Whether it's the ill-fated Apollo 13 space mission, the discovery of a mysterious stone giant, or one of the most perplexing shipwrecks in US history, these are among the most unforgettable stories found in America's museums. Behind each artefact is yet another story to be told and secrets to be revealed - often tales brimming with scandal, mystery, murder, and intrigue. Whether a diary from an arctic exploration, a stone giant thought to be the remnant of a race of enormous people, or a futuristic house that almost changed the world, the iconic items within their walls all have something to tell us about who we are and what we've become. Each hour of this series will take viewers on a captivating, revealing, and at times shocking tour of America's past, revisiting its most crucial events by reexamining what has been left behind. The series tackles some of history's most enduring mysteries - tales that viewers will be intimately familiar with - and little known episodes that have never been told before on television.

The famous Desert Fox of legend, the commander of the German Afrika Korps, a soldier loved by his men and respected by his enemies. Rommel is best remembered for his spectacular successes over the British 8th Army and in particular the capture of Tobruk in 1942, he subsequently drove the British back to El-Alamein. He was withdrawn after the defeat by Montgomery and, his health broken, put in charge of the Channel defences in 1943. Rommel was implicated in the plot to kill Hitler in 1944, and his subsequent suicide did nothing to diminish his reputation as a formidable soldier and leader.

From lowly Corsican army officer to first consul of France, this episode charts the rise of Napoleon to leader of the French nation in the late 1790s. It tells of Napoleon's military triumphs in Italy, Egypt and on the streets of Paris, his marriage to Josephine Beauharnais and leadership of the military coup that swept him into power. It shares in his ambition as an army officer, his highly progressive modernisation of the country during the early years of his dictatorship, but also his acute sensitivity, a personality trait that in later years would prove to be an Achilles heel to his power.

When the passenger liner Lusitania was torpedoed by a German U-boat off the southern coast of Ireland in 1915, the ship sunk in just 18 minutes, taking 1200 people down with it. The needless tragedy arguably altered the course of World War I, as the number of Americans among the dead pulled the previously unaligned US and all its military might into the war. Focusing on eight individual passengers and the German U-boat captain, this enthralling film brings those desperate last 18 minutes onboard the Lusitania vividly to life. From the kitchens deep below deck to the first class cabins, it reveals stories of heroism, sacrifice, luck and misfortune and how these individuals' fight for survival impacted on the lives of millions world-wide.

A signal emitted from Berlin travels in concentric circles and encompasses the world. From the destroyed streets of Berlin a message rose: never again. The world must change. This peace ceremony was twofold. First came May 7, in the small school in Rheims, north-east France, and in the face of Russian anger, the ceremony marking May 8, thus delaying a ceasefire with Germany until May 9 (Soviet time). From May 7 to May 9, a difference is felt as it grows, and two separate blocs are formed.
