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.

Jazz begins in New Orleans, 19th century America's most cosmopolitan city, where the sound of marching bands, Italian opera, Caribbean rhythms, and minstrel shows fill the streets with a richly diverse musical culture. Here, in the 1890s, African-American musicians create a new music out of these ingredients by mixing in ragtime syncopations and the soulful feeling of the blues. Soon after the start of the new century, people are calling it jazz.

When giants rise and fall. This revelatory series reveals how the behemoth that was the East India Company grew into an imperial power, and became the hotbed of corruption and greed that led to its downfall. Over the past 10 years, India and China have been among the fastest growing economies in the world. But at one time England controlled India, helping to create its major cities, and was heavily invested in China, It was England's economy and trade that dwarfed others. And it was all in the hands of the first and greatest multi-national company: the behemoth that was the East India Company. On the ground in India, Dan Snow sets out to discover the motives of those who set up the company at the beginning of the 17th-century. How did it grow into an Imperial power? What influence and impact did the Company have on the globe? A hotbed of corruption and greed, and responsible for the deaths of over one million people, just how did the Company manage to attain such power and what led to its explosive decline?

Rick Steins latest food adventure takes him to one of the biggest cities in the world as he finds out whether Shanghai, having almost doubled in size over the last 20 years, has managed to hang on to its culinary roots. Proving that there's a lot more to Chinese food than our tried and tested familiar takeaway dishes, he shares new recipes for the delicious Shanghainese dishes he discovers during his exploration of the city and its coastal suburbs. From an ordinary family home, through the back streets with their fast food cooks and their flaming woks, to soup dumpling joints and eventually to the most glitzy restaurant, Rick gets a real sense of what food means to the residents of this massive city.
