An epic series that deciphers the life of Jesus through six extraordinary objects associated with his life and death. We discover fascinating new insights into the historical Jesus, utilising the latest state-of-the-art scientific techniques and archaeological research. We investigate the value and authenticity of six objects which could shed new light on Jesus - the Shroud of Turin, relics venerated as part of the True Cross, the Gospel of Judas, relics believed to be of John the Baptist, the Gospel of Mary Magdalene and the secret brother of Jesus. We are guided by breathtaking dramatic reconstruction and a first-class panel of on-screen contributors. We hear from representatives of the world's best universities including Yale, Harvard, Princeton and Oxford, as they provide historical and theological insight, while the likes of Fr James Martin SJ, Rev Paul Raushenbush and Erwin MacManus help bring our characters and their emotional journeys to life for our audience.

This series explores the greatest empires in a way that has never been fully investigated. Each episode highlights and exposes the political intrigue, personal vendettas, family mayhem, acts of vengeance and the ever-evolving tension, turmoil and chaos that shaped these civilisations and led to their destruction from within. Egypt reached the pinnacle of its power in the 14th century BCE, when the pyramids of Giza were already 1000 years old. The pharaoh Akhenaten ushered in a brutal period of religious violence by rejecting the old gods and imposing the worship of Aten. The conflict raged for decades as his wives and children fought for control of the Empire, the most famous casualty being the boy king Tutankhamun.

Tony Robinson is going all Indiana Jones, scrabbling around archaeological excavations by the Nile and getting very muddy. We see him wandering around the great ancient Egyptian monuments in Giza and Luxor, but it's far more interesting to follow him as he becomes one of the first laymen to catch sight of new discoveries being made in previously unexplored tombs. Like the dozens of pots containing the detritus of a mummification process - including an accidentally discarded major organ that Tony's pleased as punch to get to hold - or the exquisitely carved but unfinished entrance way to the home for eternity of an ancient local dignitary.

The amazing successes and stunning failures of ancient military engineers have directly affected the weapons and tactics we use today. In fact, an ancient Greek weapon is still used on modern aircraft carriers. How did the Chinese develop a catapult with a firing rate of 10 rounds per second? Did the living horse battlefield torpedoes of the middle ages battlefield actually work? And, how did the great Carthaginian general Hannibal cross the highest mountain range in Europe using equipment still used by today's Special Forces, dissolving solid rocks in his path using an ancient chemical version of dynamite?
