The story of Pocahontas has been passed down through the centuries. Her relationship with John Smith has been characterised as a romance that united two cultures and created lasting peace. However, the life of this American Indian princess was anything but a fairytale. Pocahontas: Beyond the Myth looks beyond the fiction and reveals the real story of Pocahontas, a tale of kidnapping, conflict, starvation, ocean journeys, and the future of an entire civilisation. Using expert interviews with authors, historians, curators and the current chief of the Pamunkey tribe (Pocahontas’ actual tribe), archival images and historical recreations, this program explores Pocahontas’ long lasting fame.

Adventurer and journalist Simon Reeve heads to East Africa to uncover the stories behind the nation's favourite drink. Whilst we drink millions of cups of the stuff each day, how many of us know where our tea actually comes from? The surprising answer is that most of the leaves that go into our everyday teabags don't come from India or China but are bought from an auction in the coastal city of Mombasa in Kenya. From here Simon follows the tea trail, through the epic landscapes of Kenya and Uganda meeting some of the millions of people who pick, pack and transport our tea. Drinking tea with everyone from Masaai cattle herders to the descendants of the original white tea planters, Simon learns that the industry that supplies our everyday cuppa is not immune to the troubles of the continent - poverty, low wages and child labour.
