In 1931, Harold Lasseter's body was found after perishing in Central Australia's deserts. His diary tantalisingly revealed he'd discovered a fabulous seven mile seam of gold, worth millions, but would 'give it all for a loaf of bread'. Despite hundreds of expeditions since, the gold has never been found. Obsessed with solving the mystery, filmmaker Luke Walker discovers Lasseter's 85-year-old son Bob, still wandering the desert, on a quixotic mission to find the gold that killed his father and destroyed his childhood. But now, 80 years on, is it still possible to piece together the fragments of history Lasseter left behind?

Emperor Hadrian is well known for his eponymous wall. Seventy miles long, it was a prodigious feat and remains one of the greatest physical remnants of the Roman Empire. But in reality, the wall was nothing more than a sideshow to the main event. In this fascinating historical documentary, historian Dan Snow follows in the footsteps of the Emperor, from Northumberland to North Africa, from Jerusalem to Rome and discovers one of the most powerful and enigmatic rulers and characters in world history. Overtly gay, a philosopher, poet and flautist, he was also a brilliant military strategist and ruthless commander of his legions. With his Greek intellect and Roman engineering skills, Hadrian set about physically ring-fencing and consolidating the entire empire. For better, and often for worse, he helped to define the world we know today, and left an unparalleled legacy that is still marvelled at today.
