8: The Story of Roald Amundsen and his incredible journey to the South Pole in 1911 Written by IAN RODGER
Introduced and narrated by David Attenborough from the Royal Geographical Society, London Shock and disbelief rebounded through Britain at the news that Scott of the Antarctic had an unexpected rival. At the last moment Roald Amundsen , a tough and moody Norwegian, had decided to race the British expedition to the South Pole. For Scott the competition was to end in tragedy and death. It was Amundsen, single-minded to the point of obsession, who succeeded and lived.

The third in a series of six programmes in which A.J.P. Taylor talks about the great leaders of the Second World War. They were the War Lords - men of incalculable power who dominated both the military and civil affairs of their countries.
"I have only one aim in life,' said Churchill, "that is to defeat Hitler - and that makes things very simple for me."
A.J.P. Taylor tells the story of Winston Churchill, and analyses his character and achievements. He is controversially outspoken about some of Churchill's failings - "I suppose his greatest mistake was his refusal to take the dangers in the Far East seriously. He said 'the little yellow men will never dare to challenge the might of the British Empire'". A.J.P. Taylor is equally frank in his assessments of Churchill's heroic successes - "there have been two great war heroes in our history, Nelson and Wellington, both in their different ways the saviours of their country. Churchill was added unto them."
