Documentary charting the final months of the Second World War on European and Pacific fronts, beginning as tensions mount between the Allies over strategy.

The series’ narrative thread is an examination of the power struggle over who will win the peace. The fight takes place between the big three wartime allies: The Soviet Union, Britain and America. Each country and leader is embedded in each programme as central characters; we become familiar with their approach and their particular cocktail of double-dealing.

The five programmes follow a chronological order which enable us to track the shifting fortunes of the big three as a new world order is established. At the start of 1945 the Allies know that the war will be over – it is a matter of time – so while the actual military victory still has to be won the real intrigue takes place behind the scenes as World rule for the next 50 years is thrashed out.

So while the first two programmes deal with the military campaign in Europe and the Pacific this is set against the political infighting among the big three allies to cast the post war world in their own separate images. The outcome of these negotiations was to define the way we live around the globe for the next half a century.

When Geri and her husband Kevin first saw Barnhill they fell in love. All practical and sensible decision making went out of the window the moment they saw the gothic arches, quirky architectural features and in particular the glass lantern-like cupola sitting on top. Despite living in Kent, they decided to buy their dream home in Devon without even commissioning a survey, but quickly discovered if they had, they might have run a mile.

Barnhill was in a critical condition. As the restoration begins so too does a race against time to prevent it collapsing. Walls believed to be sturdy turn out to be nothing more than waterlogged rotting mud piles – Geri quickly doubles her expected restoration budget. As efforts to save the gothic fantasy grow in intensity so too does its history. Believed to date back to the 18th century, but changed significantly over time, Barnhill was always a subject of mystery and speculation in the village, but finally some hard evidence emerges. The historical investigation could even explain the reason the original build was so poorly executed.

As the financial cost of saving the house overtakes what it could ever be worth, Geri has to take some tough decisions. Her only option is to manage the build herself – but then the true impact of trying to undo two centuries of amateur construction hits home – Barnhill’s defining feature, the glass lantern on top is on the brink of plummeting to the ground. As Geri attempts to rescue the old house she starts to lose control of what the final impact of saving Barnhill will have on her budget, and on her.

Crumbling, ancient houses are brought back to life by passionate owners as they restore and convert them into striking 21st century homes, unravelling the properties’ extraordinary past lives through their architectural and social history.

Grand Designs meets Who Do You Think You Are? Presented by Caroline Quentin, Restoration Home follows private owners of crumbling historic buildings as they save them from ruin and restore them into wonderful 21st century homes. With the help of architectural expert, Kieran Long, and social historian, Dr. Kate Williams, Restoration Home turns detective to unravel the properties’ astonishing lives. As the new owners transform the buildings into their homes, the family trees of these crumbling ruins start to emerge. Tales of Kings and Queens, murder, civil unrest, moments that shocked and shaped Britain are revealed as these buildings are brought back to life.

The staff at Lots Road are preparing for their biggest sale of the year and, with their annual bonuses on the line, hope that a special ‘gift auction’ of jewellery and designer handbags will help them hit the £180,000 target.

The Auction House is a documentary series that provides a unique glimpse into this extraordinary institution and reveals why its a magnet for eccentric home-owners, antiques buffs, and obsessive collectors alike. Upstairs at Lots Road is the antiques section and whereas the prices for Victorian furniture are in freefall, the Modern auction downstairs (considered to be a little less elegant) is decidedly more lucrative.

The Auction House faces a daily struggle to embrace change and exploit new markets whilst trying to turn a profit at the same time. Over the course of the series, cameras will follow dynamic boss Roger and his loyal staff as they strive to meet the sophisticated tastes of the super-rich. Not only will viewers get to see the highly skilled team in action as they deduce what items are worth more than mere sentiment and sort the privileged from the timewasters, but also meet the obsessive collectors in pursuit of the perfect deal.

As the closed doors of Londons most lavish homes are thrown open, the bidding starts now for your front row seat to the ultimate fly on the wall experience.

As Ned Stark in Game of Thrones and the eponymous rifleman of the Sharpe adventures, Sean Bean is no stranger to the battlefield. But that’s just fantasy next to his findings in this lively and sobering two-part history. Visiting the quaggy Belgian fields of the 1815 battle, he discovers the horrific conditions experienced by the soldiers, the shocking effect of musket balls and the factors that swayed the outcome.

Journal entries and expert input bring alive the hour-by-hour events at Ligny and Hougoumont, while one act of mercy shown towards a French drummer boy shines out from the insanity. Tomorrow’s conclusion explores the impact of Wellington’s cavalry.

Part one of two. The actor tells the story of Napoleon’s final defeat, firing original Waterloo weapons and meeting the ancestors of those who fought in the decisive battle.

Hollywood actor Sean Bean tells the story of Waterloo, one of history’s most decisive battles. Sean’s journey of discovery is inspired by his own experiences of playing Napoleonic soldier Richard Sharpe in TV films based on Bernard Cornwell’s best-selling novels. In the programmes he draws on the eye-witness accounts of soldiers who fought at Waterloo to tell the story of the dramatic events of 18 June 1815 as they were experienced by the ordinary soldiers who fought it. He pieces together the chronology of the battle and visits some of the legendary places where the outcome was decided, including the buildings at Hougoumont which witnessed some of the heaviest fighting. He also meets descendants of some of the soldiers who fought at Waterloo, to discover how they remember the achievements of their ancestors. To bring their stories to life he works alongside present-day soldiers from the British army and experts in military history and stages hands-on experiments that bring him closer to the reality of fighting at Waterloo. At the Royal Armouries in Leeds he fires an original Waterloo musket, loaded with live ammunition, and takes part in an experiment to test the damage caused by original Waterloo cavalry swords. He works with re-enactors from the Napoleonic Association to find out more about the infantry and artillery tactics used in the battle. He also witnesses the damage caused by an original Waterloo cannon using live ammunition. In Belgium he meets the archaeologist responsible for the unique discovery of the skeleton of a Waterloo soldier who died during the battle and whose remains lay undiscovered on the battlefield for almost 200 years, in the exact spot where the soldier died.
