Icons: The Greatest Person of the 20th Century Meet the Icons

ICONS asks you to assess the achievements of the 20th century's most important and influential figures – men and women who helped shape our world today. Seven programmes, starting on the 8th of January, will be devoted to seven different categories of human excellence, and each one will introduce you to four extraordinary individuals. At the end of each show you will be able to vote for your favourite. Ultimately you get to decide who is the greatest icon of them all, as the category winners go head to head in a live final with a public vote on the 5th of February.
