London: A Tale of Two Cities with Dan Cruickshank
Dan Cruickshank follows in the footsteps of John Stow and John Strype, two of London's greatest chroniclers, to explore one of the most dramatic centuries in the history of London. The 17th century saw London plunged into a series of devastating disasters. The Civil War, a murderous plague and the destruction that was the great fire should have seen the small medieval city all but destroyed. Yet somehow, London not only survived but emerged as one of the wealthiest and most influential cities in Europe. Using two remarkable surveys written at either end of this momentous century, Cruickshank discovers how a unique combination of innovation, ambition and sheer spirit of enterprise saw Londoners thrive. His journey reveals the twists and turns of a century that laid the foundations of one of the most important cities on the planet.

Britain's Most Fragile Treasure
Historian Dr Janina Ramirez unlocks the secrets of a centuries-old masterpiece in glass, the East Window at York Minster. This is the largest medieval stained-glass window in the country and the creative vision of a master craftsman called John Thornton. Within its 311 panels is the entire history of the world, from the first day to the Last Judgment, and the scale of Thornton's achievement is revealed as Dr Ramirez follows the work of a conservation team at York Glaziers Trust. They have dismantled the window as part of a five-year project to repair centuries of damage and restore it to its original glory. It is a unique opportunity for Dr Ramirez to examine Thornton's greatest work at close quarters, to discover details that would normally be impossible to see and to reveal exactly how medieval artists made images of such delicacy and complexity using the simplest of tools. The window is far more than a work of art, it is a window into the medieval world and the medieval mind.
