    Seconds from Disaster

    On 26 December, 2004, the largest earthquake in 40 years strikes deep beneath the Indian Ocean. Lasting eight minutes and stretching a record 1,600 kilometres in length, the earthquake's massive strength surpasses measurement on the Richter scale. Just after 8:15 AM, billions of tonnes of water speed towards land with a force equivalent to more than 30,000 Hiroshima bombs. Within minutes, the terrifying wall of water makes landfall, engulfing entire towns in its path. Deadly currents and dangerous debris tear buildings apart, as people across South Asia fight for survival. Ultimately claiming the lives of more than 250,000 people, it is the most devastating tsunami in recorded history and scientists are puzzled by the extraordinary size and savagery of the waves. Tsunami experts must analyze the geologic episode, looking for clues behind the tsunami's overwhelming force. Their findings re-define tsunami prediction and reveal that tsunamis may pose a greater threat than previously realized.

    Titanic's Fatal Fire

    She was the largest ship ever built. Believed to be unsinkable, when RMS Titanic went down on her maiden voyage taking 1500 people to their death, it sent shock waves across the world and started a debate that still rages today. Why, when the Titanic received several warnings of icebergs ahead, did the captain steam full speed towards them without changing course? A full two hours after the collision, the Titanic was safely afloat before she inexplicably gave way and took a hundreds of passengers to their deaths. What happened to make her sink so rapidly? For the first time, investigative journalist and Titanic expert, Senan Molony can reveal the real story. In a television exclusive, Titanic's Fatal Fire uses a breathtaking new graphic technique to bring to life, in full moving colour, recently unearthed photographs of the launch and maiden voyage of RMS Titanic. The rare photographs are a remarkable find in themselves - but buried within them is an intriguing clue: a previously unseen mark on the hull that launches Senan Molony into a fresh investigation into the century old mystery of the ship's sinking. Drawing on the latest science, modern experts and overlooked eyewitness testimony, Senan discovers that behind the dark mark, a fire was raging in the ship's boiler rooms - a fire ultimately responsible for the most controversial tragedy in maritime history. Shockingly, the owners of the Titanic knew about the fire before she set sail and deliberately kept the fire secret from their passengers. Modern scientific analysis explains how the fire was ultimately responsible for Captain Smith's decision to charge through the ice-field at top speed. The fire also explains the catastrophic failure that led to the "unsinkable" Titanic unexpectedly giving way, taking one and a half thousand passengers to their death. In a bitter postscript, Senan reveals how in the wake of the disaster, he believes White Star's Chairman, J Bruce Ismay, did everything in his power to keep the real story from getting out.

    Tut's Treasures: Hidden Secrets

    A beautifully crafted ceremonial dagger made of iron found wrapped inside his mummified corpse has perplexed Egyptologists since it was first discovered. At the time of Tut's reign, the use of iron was not only rare - it was a metal the Ancient Egyptians had almost no expertise in. Now using X-ray analysis scientists have confirmed the iron came from a meteorite- suggesting Tutankhamun believed he had the blessings of the gods Now a brand new revelation suggests he also saw himself as a player on the world stage. Howard Carter found 1500 gold fragments underneath the chariots stacked inside the tomb but couldn't reconstruct the objects the fragments came from. Now, after years of painstaking conservation, they can be revealed as golden decorations for the chariots and the horses that would have pulled them. These breath-taking designs, not seen since the tomb doors were shut 3,300 years ago, portray Tutankhamun as an international leader, a king at the centre of the world.. Another treasure, hidden from view for decades, now reveals he was prepared to go to war to establish his superiority. The latest imaging techniques reveal that Tutankhamun's personal leather tunic is actually cutting edge battle armour- light, flexible but able to withstand the impact of an arrow. It was clothing designed to be used in war. As the evidence from the unseen golden artwork, the celestial dagger and the weapons of war come together we uncover the story of a boy who dragged a failing Egypt back from the brink and, in doing so, built an international reputation as a leader in less than a decade- a young King and leader who was powerful enough to re-establish a failing Egypt at the centre of the ancient world.

    Tut's Treasures: Hidden Secrets

    In 1922 Howard Carter made a stunning discovery - King Tutankhamun's tomb. Crammed inside were over 5,000 priceless artefacts of every type - from gold slippers to finely tooled daggers, the remains of chariots and the boy king's show-stopping solid gold death mask. For the first time in 90 years these incredible treasures are being brought back together as the starring attraction in Cairo's brand-new #750 million Grand Egyptian Museum. Now, advances in modern technology are uncovering new secrets about a boy king who died before his twentieth birthday and the ancient land he ruled. King Tut's incredible death mask - 24lbs of pure gold - has always been the subject of debate with many scholars believing its damaged nameplate, known as a cartouche, and different colours of gold meant it was never made specifically for him. It was more likely made for his female ancestor, Nefertiti. And, until now, the evidence seems to back that theory up. New analysis of some of his many burial goods, including 'Shabtis'- miniature effigies that were meant to act as servants in the afterlife- suggest up to a quarter of all the treasures in the tomb were made for someone else. Closer analysis at the Grand Egyptian Museum of the funeral beds also paint a picture of a rushed burial where the funeral planners were caught by surprise at Tutankhamun's sudden, unexpected death and there wasn't enough time to provide the regal burial a pharaoh would expect. So could the death mask- the world's most famous ancient object- also be a reused artefact from another tomb? Now the mask has been subjected to the most forensically intense investigation ever to try and answer that question once and for all. The result flies in the face of much of the other evidence from the tomb. Tutankhamun may have been buried with many second hand goods but the mask wasn't one of them - the pharaoh's death mask was made especially for him and in only 70 days.

    Tut's Treasures: Hidden Secrets

    Of the 5,398 treasures from Tutankhamun's tomb at the Grand Egyptian Museum in Cairo, the ones that paint a picture of Tutankhamun's family are the most unsettling. Particularly intriguing are two tiny mummified babies. Now in the labs of the museum, they give a chilling insight into the bizarre practices that kept the Pharaoh's dynasty in power and ultimately lead to its downfall. DNA analysis reveals the foetuses are Tutankhamun's stillborn children - the offspring of an incestuous relationship between Tutankhamun and his sister. Similarly, DNA evidence suggests Tutankhamun was also the result of incest. Artefacts hidden for years in museum basements hint that he suffered genetic abnormalities and lived in constant pain. Golden slippers, rescued from almost certain disintegration by the Museum's conservators, reveal additional straps to hold the pharaoh's foot inside the shoe. Whilst the wear and tear on beautifully crafted walking sticks suggest he needed support for even simple tasks like walking. Could Tutankhamun's disability and the death of his unborn children be related? A genetics expert thinks so and shows how the royal family's incest magnified genetic weaknesses, which can cause conditions such as Tutankhamun's clubfoot and miscarriage. But Tutankhamun and his royal family weren't just afflicted by inbreeding - he also inherited a broken and failing Egypt from his father Akhenaten's disastrous attempt to change the religion of the country and build a new capital. A generation of children and young people died building Akhenaten's city in the desert and Egypt lost land to its enemies. It was a poisonous legacy that Tutankhamun tried to escape but failed. Tutankhamun died early at the age of 19, possibly at the head of his troops far from home. The evidence suggests his disability may have contributed to a fatal chariot accident. Thanks to the devastating deeds of his father, Tutankhamun was buried in a small tomb and quickly erased from official Egyptian history. But by a twist of fate, his fall from grace in ancient times meant he and his treasure would be reserved for posterity and he would become the most famous ruler of the ancient world.

    In northern Guatemala lies a hidden city devoured by the wild, relentless jungle. Local people discovered strange hills arranged in massive circles. Archaeologists realized this was the religious and cultural center of the Mayan Civilization. Some of these ruins are being brought to life with the aid of satellites and a laser scanning technology called LiDAR. In the past year, LiDAR images unveiled an astonishing but hidden jungle metropolis. Homes? highways? defensive walls? pyramids. In all, more than 60,000 structures, their outlines invisible to the naked eye. Taken together, they point to a far more sprawling and sophisticated civilization than we ever imagined possibleand they raise a provocative question: How could such a great society fail?
