In May 2006 in Paris, former French President, Jaques Chirac, opened the world's first museum to acknowledge the inherent artistic value of indigenous art works. Founded on a belief "in the equal dignity of the world's cultures", Chirac said, "France wished to pay rightful homage to peoples to whom, throughout the ages, history has all too often done violence". For the first time what used to be referred to as primitive art, works from Oceania, Asia, Africa and the America's, found mostly until now in dusty natural history museums, have been given an ultra modern home in the Musee du Quai Branly, on the Seine adjacent to the Eiffel Tower. The design of the museum and its ceilings, floors and facades have drawn heavily on the work of contemporary Australian Aboriginal artists.

In 1967, four unknown actors in a kids' TV show became the biggest pop band in the world. In America, they outsold Elvis and The Beatles combined. They were The Monkees. With their anarchic TV show and contagious pop songs they attracted a cult following that survives to this day. The Monkees were no ordinary band: they are credited as being the industry's first manufactured pop group. Behind the sugary smiles and bubblegum pop songs lay a cut-throat business enterprise fuelled by money, ego and the ambition of some of the biggest names in Hollywood. A business enterprise that, ultimately, was to end in tears. This program charts the rise and fall of this unlikely pop group, telling the inside story of four young men who were hand-picked to become overnight superstars, melting the hearts of teenyboppers around the globe and earning their creators huge record sales.

Recorded live from Shakespeare's Globe Theatre. The Tudor Court is locked in a power struggle between its nobles and the Machiavellian Cardinal Wolsey, the King's first minister and the most conspicuous symbol of Catholic power in the land. Wolsey's ambition knows no bounds and when his chief ally, Queen Katherine, interferes in the King's romance with Anne Bullen, he brings gigantic ruin upon himself, the Queen and centuries of English obedience to Rome. Famous in its own day as Shakespeare's most sumptuous and spectacular play, Henry VIII is a gorgeous pageant of masques and royal ceremony; a blaze of fireworks, cannon fire, red satin and cloth of gold. But within the passages of grandeur works the mind of the mature Shakespeare: psychological and political insight, language of great depth and power and, in the figures of Wolsey and Katherine, two of his most vivid and memorable characters.

Time gives rhythm to the world around us. But how do we really know what time it is? Professor Brian Cox goes in search of the answer to a question you wouldn't give a passing thought. From our historical dictator of time - the Sun - to the world's irregular flutters and the physical definition of a second by an atomic clock, Brian discovers telling the time is a tricky business. But why do we need to know what time it is so very accurately? Without correct time signals, aircraft, telecommunications systems, the world's global financial systems, global positioning and many other systems we use and rely on everyday wouldn't work. They all depend on knowing the time. Exactly. In this entertaining film, Brian pushes our understanding of time to the depths of our imagination.

Rob Bell uncovers the pioneering history of the London Underground - with special access to its hidden workings, and meeting the staff who know and love it. He explores the construction of the world's first deep Tube line - known today as the Northern Line. The Northern Line runs for 60km through London, connecting north and south across the Thames and 700,000 passengers rely on it every day. But to build it, its Victorian engineers had to overcome unbelievable obstacles. One man, James Greathead, pioneered a new kind of tunnelling machine, that allowed deep tunnels to be built faster and more safely than ever before. But the new Tube line needed newfangled electric trains, lifts and escalators to make it work too. Rob discovers the remains of the first-ever station on the Northern Line, King William Street, just before it is sealed up forever. He gets down on the tracks with the maintenance team at Camden Junction, who toil on this Spaghetti Junction of the Tube every night to keep it working, and opens the sealed tunnels of an abandoned extension of the line in north London. And he meets the station manager at Balham to hear the story of how one of the worst tragedies on the Tube unfolded during the Blitz. Finally he's allowed into the latest tunnelling work, as the Northern Line is extended to Battersea Power Station - where the oldest deep Tube in the world is becoming the newest.
