Elizabeth at 90 - A Family Tribute

A unique celebration of the Queen's ninety years as she reaches her landmark birthday in April. Film-maker John Bridcut has been granted special access to the complete collection of Her Majesty's personal ciné films, shot by the Duke of Edinburgh and the Queen herself, as well as by King George VI and Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother. Much of it has never been seen publicly before.

Various members of the Royal Family are filmed watching this private footage and contributing their own personal insights and their memories of the woman they know both as a member of their own close family and as queen.

Among those taking part are the Prince of Wales, the Duke of Cambridge, Prince Harry, the Princess Royal, the Duke of Kent and his sister Princess Alexandra, who has never before given an interview.

John Bridcut previously produced A Jubilee Tribute to the Queen by the Prince of Wales for BBC One in 2012, as well as The Prince and the Composer (BBC Two and Four, 2011), Charles at 60: The Passionate Prince (BBC One, 2008 ), and Queen and Country, BBC One's four-part series to mark the Golden Jubilee in 2002.

The Man Who Crossed Hitler (2011)

BBC film.

Remarkable factual drama based on a true story, starring Ian Hart, Ed Stoppard and Bill Paterson.

In the summer of 1931, with Germany on the brink of economic collapse, and the city of Berlin turning into a paramilitary war-zone, audacious young prosecutor Hans Litten (Stoppard) chose to summon a star witness to a trial of Nazi thugs. In spite of the risk to his own safety and against the advice of those who love him, Litten forced rising political star Adolf Hitler (Hart) to make a sensational appearance in the witness stand of Berlin's central criminal court.

Litten aimed to expose the true character of Hitler and his politics to the German public, to reveal his hypocrisy and his violent ambitions, and in doing so, halt the electoral success of the Nazi Party.

In a humiliating and hostile cross-examination, Hitler was forced to account for his political beliefs, his contempt for the law and his desire to destroy German democracy. For a brief moment, Hitler's political future was genuinely in the balance.

Hitler survived the ordeal, but it was a close encounter which he never forgave and for which Litten paid a heavy price - Dachau.

I normally don't respond to such negative rubbish as you seem to wollow in. The tinfoil thing is several decades old by now, it's not a war winner. Especially when there's an idiot involved.

Wonders of the Solar System

Order out of Chaos

Acclaimed 2010 BBC series presented by Professor Brian Cox, University of Manchester physicist and former keyboard player in pop rock band D:Ream (famous for their 1993 hit "Things Can Only Get Better").

In this episode, Brian visits some of the most stunning locations on earth to describe how the laws of nature have carved natural wonders across the solar system.

Brian reveals how beauty and order in earth's cosmic backyard was formed from nothing more than a chaotic cloud of gas. Chasing tornados in Oklahoma, he explains how the same physics that creates these spinning storms shaped the young solar system. Out of this celestial maelstrom emerged the jewel in the crown, Brian's second wonder - the magnificent rings of Saturn.

On an ice-choked lagoon in Iceland, he sees the nearest thing on earth to Saturn's rings. Using the latest scientific imagery and breathtaking graphics, he explains how the intricate patterns round Saturn are shaped by the cluster of more than 60 moons surrounding the planet.

One of those moons makes a spectacular contribution to the rings and is the third wonder of the solar system. Brian describes the astonishing discovery of giant fountains of ice erupting from the surface of Enceladus, which soar thousands of miles into space.

In Wonders of the Solar System, Professor Brian Cox visits some of the most stunning locations on earth to describe how the laws of nature have carved natural wonders across the solar system.

In this episode, Brian descends to the bottom of the Pacific in a submarine to witness the extraordinary life forms that survive in the cold, black waters. All life on Earth needs water so the search for aliens in the solar system has followed the search for water.

Soaring above the dramatic Scablands of the United States, Brian discovers how the same landscape has been found on Mars. And it was all carved out in a geological heartbeat by a monumental flood.

Armed with a gas mask, Brian enters a cave in Mexico where bacteria breathe toxic gas and leak concentrated acid. Yet relatives of these creatures could be surviving in newly discovered caves on Mars.

But Brian's sixth wonder isn't a planet at all. Jupiter's moon Europa is a dazzling ball of ice etched with strange cracks. The patterns in the ice reveal that, far below, there is an ocean with more potentially life-giving water than all the oceans on Earth.

Of all the wonders of the solar system forged by the laws of nature, there is one that stands out. In the final episode of this series, Brian reveals the greatest wonder of them all.

Series 23

Episode 1

The world's most-watched factual TV show returns with a new set of presenters. This first episode of the new series got mixed reviews by fans. What do you think of it?

In the first show of the new series, Chris Evans takes the Dodge Viper ACR to the home of Top Gun in Nevada, in a laser gun battle with Sabine Schmitz in a Chevrolet Corvette Z06.

Matt LeBlanc tackles wildest Morocco in Somerset's finest off-roader, the Ariel Nomad.

Back on British soil, Evans and LeBlanc take a rather soggy road trip to Blackpool in a pair of roofless Reliant three-wheelers, whereupon they are tasked with defending the honour of their nations in a series of gruelling UK-versus-USA challenges. Who will emerge victorious?

Back in the studio, this week's celebrity guests are Social Network star Jesse Eisenberg and Gordon Ramsey.

The picture quality isn't that great, but it's the best I could find.

The Lake District

Dave takes Si on a pub tour of his Lake District home patch, following in the footsteps of the poets Wordsworth and Coleridge.

The Great Fire of London

Si and Dave's historic pub tour takes them to London, where they discover inns that witnessed the Great Fire and pubs that watered the workers during the massive 50-year rebuild of the city.
