    Tutankhamun: Man, Treasure, Curse

    Tutankhamun: Man, Treasure, Curse

    Having been lost to history for 3,000 years, Egyptian Pharaoh Tutankhamun became a household name in 1922 when British Archaeologist Howard Carter excavated his tomb. But who was the man behind the iconic golden mask? What treasures were found in his tomb? and what is the truth behind the curse of Tutankhamun?

    Mussolini's March on Rome (1922)

    Mussolini's March on Rome (1922)

    Some 1500 years after Alaric led the Visigoths in the sacking of Rome, the eternal city was braced for another invasion. There was talk of as many as a million supporters of fascist politician Benito Mussolini, seizing power by force. What followed was simultaneously anti climactic and yet profoundly significant. In this episode I recount the 1922 March on Rome.

    Munich 1972 Olympic Massacre

    Munich 1972 Olympic Massacre

    In September 1972, the Olympic Motto “Faster, Higher, Stronger,” became an irrelevance as the world’s greatest sporting event was ravaged by violence and bloodshed as the Palestinian Black September group massacred 11 members of the Israeli delegation. In this episode, I discuss the Munich Massacre. Why it happened, how it happened, and whether it could have been prevented.

    As the Cold War was winding down, a group of 11 East European teenagers -- barely known to each other -- appeared on the playground at St. Mary's Roman Catholic School in Bishop's Stortford, a quiet town 30 miles from London. How would the town, and their new classmates react to their arrival? And why had they come? In this peculiar three-part story, I recount a tale of daredevil escape, a fake passport, war, the end of communism, and the remarkable story of these 11 people.
