Stewart Copeland has spent a life in music - listening, composing and playing. At the age of seven he was captivated by Carl Orff's Carmina Burana. 60 years and 25 bands later, including The Police, the spell is still strong, but why? How does music ignite that excitement? In this three part series, Stewart explores how music brings people together, moves them, binds them, communicates stories like no other art form. Why is it that music has seemingly transcendental powers that enable us to escape and connect with our Gods? Stewart travels the world meeting composers, musicians, filmmakers, DJs and scientists to ask the question, how does music work?

The Dark Ages have been misunderstood. History has identified the period following the fall of the Roman Empire with a descent into barbarism - a terrible time when civilisation stopped. Waldemar Januszczak disagrees. In this four-part series he argues that the Dark Ages were a time of great artistic achievement, with new ideas and religions provoking new artistic adventures. He embarks on a fascinating trip across Europe, Africa and Asia, visits the world's most famous collections and discovers hidden artistic gems, all to prove that the Dark Ages were actually an 'Age of Light'.
