Peter and Tom set to work straight away, learning the skills of the medieval stonemasons to construct a beautiful spiral staircase. After digging stone out of the quarry, they take it to the tracing floor, where every stone is marked out using the most closely guarded knowledge of the medieval castle builders: geometry. Then each step is hand-carved, a three-day task, before being winched into place using the treadmill-powered crane. Content licensed from Lion Tv. Any queries, please contact us at: [email protected]

Sean Bean On Waterloo: Part 1 (Battle of Waterloo Documentary) | Timeline
 
43:38
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.

The Pendle Witch Child (Witchcraft Documentary) | Timeline
 
59:35
Check out our new website for more incredible history documentaries: HD and ad-free. http://bit.ly/2O6zUsK This is an extraordinary story of the most disturbing witch trial in British history and the key role played in it by one nine-year-old girl. Jennet Device, a beggar-girl from Pendle in Lancashire, was the star witness in 1612 in the trial of her own mother, her brother, her sister and many of her neighbours; thanks to her chilling testimony, they were all hanged. Although the events in this film may date back four hundred years, its issues resonate today as much as ever – when to believe our children, and how, in times of crisis, fear of evil can easily lead us to behave in ways which may corrode the very values that we most wish to protect. Presented by Simon Armitage - poet, playwright and novelist - this film is peppered with his revealing insights into the characters’ emotional turmoil and cutting-edge use of animation, bringing this courtroom drama to life. Four hundred years on, the trial’s issues resonate as much as ever – when should we believe our children, and just how powerful can the fear of evil be? Content licensed from TVF.

48:37
Check out our new website for more incredible history documentaries: HD and ad-free. http://bit.ly/2O6zUsK This week plucky Tony Robinson continues his look at The Worst Jobs in History with a rundown on the worst royal jobs. As Tony takes on the work traditionally done at court we learn of the miserable lot of food tasters, whipping boys, falconers, and laundry women who beat Elizabethan laundry with paddles similar to cricket bats. Tony has a go at knitting chain mail; marvelling at the intricacies and tedium of fashioning one link, let alone a suit which used 200,000. Then there was the lance-makers' task of carving hundreds of lances for jousting tournaments or the shining of shoes for Edwardian hunting parties. Armourers, fire-workers, grooms of the chamber, hall boys and royal messengers all had their moments of misery. But the most unpleasant job of all fell to the unfortunate lackeys who were responsible for the rich purple dye for the monarch's coronation robes. The purple maker created the royal colour by stomping up and down on rotting shellfish which had been soaking in human urine. Content licensed from Spire.

Hidden Killers of the Tudor Home (Tudor Documentary) | Timeline
 
58:46
Check out our new website for more incredible history documentaries: HD and ad-free. http://bit.ly/2O6zUsK Dr Suzannah Lipscomb takes us back to Tudor times in search of the household killers of the era. It was a great age of exploration and science where adventurers returned from the New World with exotic goods previously unknown in Europe. An era in which the newly emergent middle classes had, for the first time, money for luxuries and early consumer goods, many of which contained hidden dangers. The period also saw a radical evolution in the very idea of 'home'. For the likes of Tudor merchants, their houses became multi-room structures instead of the single-room habitations that had been the norm (aristocracy excepted). This forced the homebuilders of the day to engineer radical new design solutions and technologies, some of which were lethal. Suzannah discovers that in Tudor houses the threat of a grisly, unpleasant death was never far away in a world (and a home) still mired in the grime and filth of the medieval period - and she shows how we still live with the legacy of some of these killers today.

Check out our new website for more incredible history documentaries: HD and ad-free. http://bit.ly/2O6zUsK The Hunt to Find Britain's Greatest Battleship She was a mighty symbol of Britain's greatness, yet she was destroyed in just three-and-a-half minutes. Experts go in search of the huge warship that sank in 1941, taking over 1400 men to the ocean floor with her. HMS Hood was thought by the British people to be the greatest warship afloat – so why did she sink so quickly? There's certainly no shortage of theories. Is the conventional explanation – a magazine explosion – the right one? If so, why did none of the three survivors hear such an explosion? Could Hood's own torpedoes have destroyed her? Was she overloaded under a grinding extra weight of special combat equipment? Had the ship been fatally weakened by her twenty long years of all-but-continuous operations on the high seas? Or was the ship's steel – from the same iron works as Titanic's – too brittle? Hopefully, resurrecting this magnificent warship will provide the answers to the questions that have baffled a generation. Content licensed from Digital Rights Group (DRG).

Check out our new website for more incredible history documentaries: HD and ad-free. http://bit.ly/2O6zUsK Check out our new website for more incredible history documentaries: HD and ad-free. http://bit.ly/2O6zUsK We all know about the late Queen Mum – one of Britain’s most instantly recognisable figures. But few have even heard of the Queen’s mother-in-law, Princess Alice. And yet, the life story of Prince Philip’s mother almost defies belief. A great granddaughter of Queen Victoria, Prince Philip’s mother married into the Greek royal family – only to see the Greek monarchy overthrown by revolution. Fleeing into exile, she suffered a severe nervous breakdown. She was locked away in mental hospitals and subjected to experimental treatments by psychiatrists – including Sigmund Freud himself. The trauma had a shattering effect on Princess Alice’s marriage and led to a fractured childhood for her only son Prince Philip. Philip’s mother eventually fought her way back from mental illness, and became an unlikely hero of World War Two – risking her life to hide a Jewish family from the Nazis. When her son married the future Queen Elizabeth in 1948, Alice turned down the option of a cosy royal life. Instead she chose to dedicate herself to working with the poor in Greece, gave away all her possessions and even founded her own religious order. Featuring exclusive interviews with family members and previously unseen archive footage, this film sheds new light on one of the royal family’s most remarkable but little known personalities.

In fact, proportionatly, an even more lethal war was taking place in the skies over Europe. The world's first flying 'aces' were regarded as the cosseted 'glamour boys' of The Great War. But by 1917, the life expectancy of a new pilot was just two weeks. In a few years, the amateur enhusiasts and young adventurers who made up the embryonic Royal Flying Corps and German Air Force had been turned, by bloody circumstance and rapidly advancing technology, into ruthless assassins. Using CGI re-enactment and real time flying footage, Dogfight will enable the viewer to get behind the controls of the first true 'dogfighters' - the Fokker DR1 Triplane favoured by the notorious Richthofen Squadron (Jagdeshwader 1) and the Sopwith Camel of the Royal Flying Corps - and reveal in a unique way how the 'dance of death' in the skies evolved. The film will open and build to its climax with the air war's greatest aerial duel and most enduring mystery - the Red Baron's last Dogfight. Want to watch more full-length Documentaries?

The Black Death (The Plague Documentary) | Timeline
 
48:22
Check out our new website for more incredible history documentaries: HD and ad-free. http://bit.ly/2O6zUsK The Black Death was an unprecedented human disaster of appalling magnitude. In three dreadful years over one third of Europe's population was wiped out. Everyone believed it heralded the end of the world. To the chroniclers of Padua the plague was devastation deemed more final than Noah's flood. The plague shook the wealthy, relatively well-populated, confident society of mid-14th-century Western Europe to its foundations. This film follows the spread of the plague and its implications for the Europe of the Middle Ages. Looking at issues such as medicine, religion, superstition and society, and employing expert analysis from top historians, this is a fascinating look at one of the most chilling and terrible periods in all of human existence. Most of all, this is history told through contemporary voices of some of the key chroniclers of the time. Real people who contracted the disease and died from it, but who left amazing, vivid accounts of what it feels like to live in a world that is falling apart.
