The Body Of...
Marilyn Monroe, Adolf Hitler and John F Kennedy are huge personalities
from the 20th century whose life stories seem to have been explored
from every conceivable angle.
But BBC THREE's The Body Of... offers a fresh perspective on the lives
of these figures who towered over the last century through an examination
of their physical bodies.
Using CGI technology and recreating them physically the programmes
will show these familiar figures developing from birth to death and
will use their changing bodies to tell their life stories.
The series will examine their illnesses, wounds, defects, brains, diets,
physical beauty and drug intake in detail to explore what influence
and impact they had on their lives, bodies and minds.
Each programme will be based entirely on medical records and photographs
with experts adding their theories, anecdotes and remembrances.

With house prices continuing to soar across the UK, architectural designer
Charlie Luxton looks at ingenious ways of solving the
nationwide crisis in affordable housing.
Written and presented by Charlie, Guerrilla Homes is a passionate and
provocative look at ways to get cheaper homes.
Accompanied by a converted shipping container that has been adapted
into a stylish home, Charlie travels to various locations around the
country to explore spaces which could potentially be used for new housing
developments - everything from wastelands to rooftops.
Used in cutting edge design and architecture as cheap and flexible
alternatives to conventional housing, shipping containers are just one
example of how low-cost and low-impact building can help first time
buyers get a foot on the property ladder.
Charlie explores the options and finds out if a converted shipping
container can ever really be called home.
Blood On The Turntable
Blood On The Turntable tells three incredible stories of battles in
the music business that would influence the industry for decades to
The series charts the in-fighting, legal wrangles and scandal that
engulfed the short, but hugely influential, musical lives of The Sex
Pistols and The Stone Roses and the turmoil and power struggles behind
the musical movement that brought the biggest selling sound of the Nineties
- hip hop.
John Lydon and Malcolm McLaren in rare interviews give their accounts
of their famous 1986 Sex Pistols court battle.
In Hip Hop Wars we hear the story of sex, violence and censorship:
a hip hop record was outlawed, police officers enraged and the President
of the United States declared himself disgusted.
The War of the Roses recounts The Stone Roses' tale of greed, naivety
and deep-seated personal hatred.
The film revolves around the svengali like character of The Roses'
manager, Gareth Evans - a former hairdresser and gold bullion dealer.
In the music business, artists and managers have two simple objectives.
To create records that people love, and to make as much money as possible.
But this simple rule can often go disastrously wrong. And when it does,
there's Blood On The Turntable.
