On the morning of 11 November 1918, people poured onto the streets of America to celebrate the end of World War One. But the war would officially end six hours later at 11am (Europe time). Tragically, hundreds of soldiers would die in those last few hours of World War One. In The Last Day of World War One Michael Palin tells the tragic tales of the Commonwealth, French, Canadian and American soldiers who died in unnecessary military actions on that day.

The discovery of an ancient mass-grave at Stonehenge is overturning all of these assumptions and suggesting that this iconic site began as a Neolithic graveyard.

These days, many young people spend little or no time with their elders. In Britain, the fastest growing age range is 85-plus, but the number of multi-generational homes is rapidly declining. Increasingly, elderly people are living in care homes and retirement villages rather than with families and, as a result, a huge number of old people have little or no contact with young people. In this series, four young people volunteer to work as carers in a retirement village. It's the start of an inspirational and emotional journey of discovery for both sides of the generation gap.
