Description: This spectacular two-hour special delivers the tipping points of World War II as you’ve never seen them before. The key editorial feature of the program is an all-seeing CGI eye; a satellite, flying above earth, bringing a new visual approach to the biggest conflict of all time. Flying through space and time from above, we’ll see these monumental moments in their global context, bringing new information to the forefront and explaining how a nation ranked 19th in the world’s militaries in 1939, emerged six years later as the planet’s only atomic superpower. Our view from above means we can re-interpret WWII; placing key events in perspective, flying around the world to show the importance of simultaneity, revealing the hidden ripple effects of crucial incidents, and re-creating ground-breaking moments that could never have been captured on camera.
Premieres on: 29 September 2013 (Sunday), 10:00pm (SIN/HK) *MUST SEE*
Description: Vikings transports us to the brutal & mysterious world of Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel), a Viking warrior & farmer who yearns to explore—& raid—the distant shores across the ocean. His ambition puts him at odds with local chieftain Earl Haraldson (Gabriel Byrne), who insists on sending his raiders to the impoverished east rather than the uncharted west. When Ragnar teams up with his boat builder friend Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard) to craft a new generation of intrepid ships capable of conquering the rough northern seas, the stage is set for conflict.
But for all its warfare & bloodshed, Vikings is also a story of family & brotherhood, capturing the love & affection between Ragnar & his wife, Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick), a respected warrior in her own right. It is the tale of Ragnar’s brother Rollo (Clive Standen), a fierce fighter who simmers with jealously; of Earl Haraldson’s wife Siggy (Jessalyn Gilsig), a dutiful beauty who may be less than loyal; and of the monk Athelstan (George Blagden), whose Christian morals clash with the Vikings’ pagan society. As ambition & innovation rattle a civilization, these characters will be put to the test—& their way of life will never be the same again.
