Historian Thomas Penn reveals the secrets of the founder of Britain's great Tudor Dynasty - and his amazing trajectory to power. Two weeks after landing on the shores of Wales in 1485 with a small band of supporters, Henry of Richmond defeats the notorious Richard III at the Battle of Bosworth - the last brutal moment of the Wars of the Roses. He is crowned Henry VII and marries Elizabeth of York to help build his new dynasty - and then begins a career of realpolitik. Rich with incident and drama, this is an unforgettable story of pageantry, treachery, dark politics, the thirst for glory - and the anxious unstable birth of Tudor England. And his legacy? After the death of his eldest son Arthur, who married Katherine of Aragon, the Crown passed to his second son, young Henry VIII.

Uncle Hitler introduces us to the descendants, family members, acquaintances and employees of Adolf Hitler. The documentary focuses on exploring the unknown story of Hitler's family and the dramatic fates of those related to the most hated man in history. It also explores the genetic history of Eva Braun to determine if Hitler and his wife had any Jewish ancestries, and it establishes the claims that Hitler's relatives hold to his remaining assets. The film introduces Hitler's living relatives including cousins in Austria, grand-nephews in Germany and New York and his in-laws, including Eva Braun's close cousin, her two sisters and the fates of their respective families and heritage. Betrayal, murder, conspiracy, physical deformity, incestuous love and robbery are all part of the ongoing tale of the exceptionally dysfunctional Hitler family.

The rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Never before has money been so polarised in Britain: the richest 85 people now own more than half that of the world's population. The country has more billionaires per head than any other country on earth; it is also the most unequal nation in Europe. In this two-part series, told through rigorous investigation, interviews with key participants and fascinating archive footage, Jacques Peretti investigates the seemingly irresistible rise of the super-rich and examines how the super-rich are upending the lives and certainties of everyone else.

This is the story of the greatest war of world history, of men and encounters that cast huge shadows across time. In this 13-part series we examine the events and personalities that drove World War II. In part one of this series we look at the legacy of Versailles and the League of Nations and their impact on events to come. The Versailles Conference and Treaty supposedly ended World War I; the guarantee of peace was the punishment and weakening of Germany. This humiliation would fuel the fire of one man's ambition to exact revenge - Adolf Hitler. When Hitler came to power in 1933 he did so on a wave of anti-Versailles feeling, assuring the German people that he would destroy the slave treaty of Versailles and once again make Germany a great power. With the impotence of the League of Nations further illustrated by their failure to act against Italy's invasion of Ethiopia and Japan's subsequent war on China, Hitler realised there was nothing to stop his plans for German rearmament and expansion. In 1938 he announced his plans to annexe Austria. With this country now in his pocket the way was clear for Hitler to move on to his next target - Czechoslovakia. As 1938 drew to a close Britain's Prime Minister was talking of appeasement, whilst a lone voice in Parliament, Winston Churchill, was warning the world about the coming dangers of Nazism.

This is the story of a world where territories and own frontiers were built by the slave trade. A world where violence, subjugation and profit imposed their routes. The history of slavery did not begin in the cotton fields. It is a much older tragedy that has been going on since the dawn of humanity. From the 7th century on, and for over 1200 years, Africa was the epicentre of a gigantic traffic of human beings traversing the entire globe: Nubian, Fulani, Mandinka, Songhai, Susu, Akan, Yoruba, Igbo, Kongo, Yao and Somali. Over 20 million Africans were deported, sold and enslaved. This criminal system thrived, laying the foundations of empires around the world. Its scale was such that for a long time, it has been impossible to relate it comprehensively. And yet, it raises a fundamental question: how did Africa end up at the heart of the slavery routes?
