Alan Yentob introduces Imagine – Lennon: The New York Years, which uncovers John Lennon and Yoko Ono's move to New York City as Lennon sought to escape the mayhem of the Beatles era and focus on his family and private life. It was in New York that Lennon created some of his most famous work, writing most of his songs in his apartment at The Dakota on Manhattan's Upper West Side.

Revealing the tumultuous life of one of the world's most famous couples as they adjusted to life in the Big Apple, the film charts the ups and downs of their creative and personal lives – including their battle against the immigration services, and Lennon's infamous "lost weekend".

Michael Epstein's documentary also features never-before-heard studio recordings from the Double Fantasy sessions and never-before-seen outtakes from Lennon in concert and his home movies.

The film includes exclusive interviews with Yoko Ono and with artists who worked closely with Lennon during this period, including Elton John and photographer Bob Gruen.

Caroline Quentin follows the progress of another house as it's restored to its former glory

Caroline Quentin follows owners of crumbling historic buildings as they save them from ruin by restoring them into 21st-century dream houses, with the help of architectural expert Kieran Long and social historian Dr Kate Williams.

Nutbourne's pumping station is a wreck. It closed in the Seventies and is now an industrial-size bunker, full of rusting, redundant, heavy-duty machinery, having played a huge part in making drinking water safe for our grandparents' generation.

When it was built in the Thirties it was slap bang in the heyday of architectural design and, even more than that, it played a crucial role in the dark, dismal years of the Thirties Depression.

For new owners Nick and Brigitte, this rotting bunker offered the ideal space for them and their five-year-old twins. When they first bought it they had no sentimental attachment to its former life. However, as they learn more about its past, they start to feel a connection which influences their conversion plans.

New economies are the future, but what people like in a smell changes and perfumers have a lot of homework to do. The fastest growing market of all is Brazil, where citizens are obsessed with everything fragranced.

This episode follows perfumers as they peer into bathroom cabinets to monitor minute shifts in taste, and an American scent guru who has to get up the noses of Latin adolescents in order to define the smell of the next version of a mass-market bodyspray.
