llustrious Corpses (Italian: Cadaveri eccellenti) is a 1976 Italian-French thriller film directed by Francesco Rosi and starring Lino Ventura, based on the novel Equal Danger (Italian title: Il contesto) by Leonardo Sciascia (1971). Audio in Italian with English subtitles.

The film starts with the murder of Investigating Judge Vargas in Palermo, amongst a climate of demonstrations, strikes and political tension between the Left and the Christian Democratic government. The subsequent investigation failing, the police assign Inspector Rogas (Lino Ventura), a man with a firm faith in the integrity of the judiciary, to solve the case. While he is starting his investigation, two judges are killed. All victims turn out to have worked together on several cases.

Its title refers to the surrealist game, Cadavre Exquis, invented by André Breton, in which the participants draw consecutive sections of a figure without seeing what the previous person has drawn, leading to unpredictable results, and is meant to describe the meandering nature of the film with its unpredictable foray into the world of political manipulations, as well as the ("illustrous") corpses of the murdered judges.

The film triggered a lot of controversy at its release, especially for the joke pronounced in the last part of the film by the communist party secretary "Truth is not always revolutionary", which is used by Rosi to denote the silence of the opposition to the prevailing and much often unpunished corruption.

The Old and the Young King (German: Der alte und der junge König) is a 1935 German historical drama film directed by Hans Steinhoff and starring Emil Jannings, Werner Hinz and Leopoldine Konstantin. Audio in German with English subtitles.

The film's sets were designed by the art directors Fritz Maurischat and Karl Weber. It was produced by a subsidiary of Tobis Film. Location shooting took place around Potsdam, including at the Garrison Church. Interiors were shot at the Grunewald and Johannisthal Studios. It premiered at the Ufa-Palast am Zoo.

Part of the tradition of Prussian films of the Weimar and Nazi eras, the film ostensibly deals with the intense conflict between Prussian King Friedrich Wilhelm I and his son and heir, Crown Prince Friedrich – the future King Friedrich II "The Great". This is a well-known incident of 18th century German history, which had drawn much public attention in the time itself, and been artistically treated before.

Among the sites included in the UNESCO World Heritage List, historic cities are one of the most represented. In this installment we will take a journey through these historic city centers.

After the fall of the Western Roman Empire, after the barbarian invasions and centuries of famine, epidemics and poverty, a process of rebirth began. Aquileia, Pisa, Modena and Monreale are the four masterpieces of religious art, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, that bear witness to the so-called "rebirth of the year 1000".

In this episode we visit the main prehistoric sites in Italy, which tell the story of human evolution from the Neanderthals to Homo Sapiens. Engravings and cave paintings can be admired at the La Pineta site near Isernia, in the evocative caves of Levanzo in the Egadi Islands, at the Cavallo site in Salento, and at the Romito site in the Calabrian Pollino.

Riprendono i fantastici Viaggi di Ulisse il piacere della Scoperta con una puntata dedicata a Roma.

I telespettatori potranno guardare la capitale da un'altra prospettiva ritrovando Alberto Angela nei luoghi più affascinanti ed emblematici della città. La prima fermata del viaggio è il convento di Trinità dei Monti per scendere poi la scalinata fino a Piazza di Spagna. La seconda meta invece è quella del Vittoriano per poi procedere fino al Campidoglio, al Foro Romano e Piazza Navona.

Successivamente visitiamo Castel Sant’Angelo che tante volte è stato protagonista della storia di Roma per poi proseguire il viaggio virtuale fino al Tevere con i suoi ponti. Per concludere in bellezza Angela ci fa visitare con lui anche Palazzo Colonna e il Palazzo della Civiltà dell’Eur.

La fondazione di Roma, altrimenti detta Natale di Roma, è stata fissata al 21 aprile dell'anno 753 a.C., 1 AUC, dal letterato latino Varrone, sulla base dei calcoli effettuati dall'astrologo Lucio Taruzio. Altre leggende, basate su altri calcoli, indicano date diverse.

La data di fondazione di Roma nell’anno 753 a.C. è quella più comunemente accettata, a prescindere da come fosse denominata o se si trattasse di un nucleo urbano o di un’area occupata da vari villaggi. Che la prima forma di organizzazione politica dell’area fosse di tipo monarchico è confermato dai reperti archeologici e dalle fonti classiche. Negli scavi emersi nella Regia (la casa dove viveva il re) del Foro Romano, fu trovato un vaso di bucchero della fine del VII secolo a.C. con apposta l’iscrizione “Rex”. Inoltre si trova la parola “regei” sulla Lapis Niger, il cippo del Foro Romano con l'iscrizione della legge sacra. Si può inoltre dedurre l’antichità della monarchia da altre iscrizioni rinvenute nel territorio, come quella del rex nemorensis (re del bosco), ovvero il sacerdote che si occupava della cura dei boschi dedicati a Diana (dal VI secolo a.C. all’epoca dell’Impero). La tradizione afferma che il primo re fu Romolo, il figlio di Marte che diede a Roma le sue primitive normative politiche.

Gli antichi Romani hanno elaborato un complesso racconto mitologico sulle origini della città e dello stato; il racconto ci è giunto con le opere storiche di Tito Livio, Dionigi di Alicarnasso, Plutarco e le opere poetiche di Virgilio e Ovidio, quasi tutti vissuti nell'età augustea. In quest'epoca le leggende, riprese da testi più antichi, vengono rimaneggiate e fuse in un racconto unitario, nel quale il passato viene interpretato in funzione delle vicende del presente. I moderni studi archeologici, che si basano su queste e su altre fonti scritte, nonché sugli oggetti e sui resti di costruzioni rinvenuti in vari momenti negli scavi, tentano di ricostruire la realtà storica che sta dietro il racconto mitico, nel quale man mano si sono andati riconoscendo elementi di verità. Secondo la storiografia moderna, Roma non fu fondata con un atto volontario ma, come altri centri coevi dell'Italia centrale, dalla progressiva riunione di villaggi.

L’elenco canonico dei sette re di Roma (otto se si aggiunge Tito Tazio) è il seguente: Romolo, Numa Pompilio, Tullio Ostilio, Anco Marzio, Lucio Tarquinio Prisco, Servio Tullio e Tarquinio il Superbo. Nessuno storico, attualmente, mette in dubbio l’esistenza degli ultimi tre re, grazie alla documentazione archeologica che conferma le informazioni fornite dalle fonti letterarie. D’altra parte, non ci sono documenti che possano negare l’esistenza dei restanti quattro.

Parte della storiografia contemporanea sostiene che l’elenco dei sette re già esisteva quando i primi storici romani, nel III secolo a.C., scrissero i propri testi sull’origine di Roma, confermando la loro reale esistenza.

21 aprile 753 a.C: è nata una Civiltà o una Leggenda destinata a sopravvivere fino ad oggi? Nonostante le testimonianze di Tito Livio, sul mito fondativo di Roma e della lotta fratricida tra i gemelli Romolo e Remo (figli del Dio Marte e della vestale Rea Silvia) il confine tra realtà e finzione è più che mai labile.

Patrick Boucheron introduce le ricerche archeologiche che ci mostrano come l’avvento della più grande città dell’Antichità sia in verità l'esito di un processo molto più lento: d'altra parte, come si dice, "Roma non si è fatta in un giorno".

Louis XI, le pouvoir fracassé (original title) is a 2011 French TV movie directed by Henri Helman. Audio French with English subtitles.

In August 1483, a mysterious messenger arrives at the castle in Touraine, where Louis XI - now old and sick - sits. The messenger reveals a conspiracy: that the King will soon be assassinated by his own lords.

Louis XI (3 July 1423 – 30 August 1483), called "Louis the Prudent", was King of France from 1461 to 1483. When Charles VII died in 1461, Louis left the Burgundian court to take possession of his kingdom. His taste for intrigue and his intense diplomatic activity earned him the nicknames "the Cunning" and "the Universal Spider", as his enemies accused him of spinning webs of plots and conspiracies. Henri Helman, reading the biography of Paul Murray Kendall, Louis XI, the universal spider (1974), discovered a less cruel king than the myth (ugly tyrant, deceitful and cruel with his "girls") of the modern times and tries to give a more positive image in the movie.

A 2020 BBC History Documentary presented by Neil Oliver.

Neil Oliver presents a drama-documentary series telling the tales of Scotland's most epic and bloody conflicts and the characters who made their mark in this memorable era of the country’s history.

Scotland's ancient clans are renowned as some of the most legendary warriors in history - fierce tribes forged by the country's wild mountains and glens. This is their thrilling story of heroism and villainy, featuring Scotland's most iconic characters - from Robert the Bruce to Mary, Queen of Scots. Find out how the united clans defeated Europe's greatest military power to claim Scottish independence, and how they used their influence to topple rulers and change the course of history.

From the fall of the Stuart kings to the rise of Bonnie Prince Charlie, this series journeys through one of the most explosive periods in British history. The clans - still clashing with each other - face brutal civil war, dirty double-dealing from the legendary Rob Roy MacGregor, and a doom-laden challenge from a new king. Blood and betrayal are around every corner.

Episode 1: Neil Oliver recounts the tale of the bloody 17th-century civil war, when clans loyal to Charles I rose up in rebellion against the Scottish Parliament.

Episode 2:

Episode 4: King James II succeeded his brother King Charles II in 1685. He was a Catholic monarch of a Protestant nation and attempts had already been made to prevent him from claiming the throne. The last of the Stuart Kings would reign for only three years and it would be his own daughter, Mary, who would cause his downfall. She, along with her husband William of Orange, would overthrow the House Of Stuart and see King James II sent into exile. It was also the end of the powerful Wynn family of North Wales. Their status would rise and fall with the Stuart Kings that they served.
