The mere mention of Vera Lynn's name evokes images of London skies filled with a barrage of balloons, and Britons riding out the German blitz in shelters and underground stations. England's sweetheart during the trying times of World War II, Lynn was still in her twenties when she took on that role. She was born Vera Margaret Welch in London's East Ham, to Bertram and Annie Welch, one year before the close of the First World War. She began singing as a girl of seven, also studying dance as a child. She later took her maternal grandmother's maiden name as her stage name, and her natural, unaffected vocal style and charm brought Lynn early success on the radio. At age 18, she was singing with Joe Loss' orchestra, and she'd also begun recording for the Crown label.

In 1927, Donald Merrett began a 12 month sentence for forgery. A charge of murder had been found Not Proven. The killing for which he had stood trial, was that of his mother ….and he was just 17. Born in New Zealand in 1908, Merrett moved with his mother Bertha to Edinburgh, in 1926. After she died and on his release from prison, he married 17 year old Vera Bonnar and went on a thirty year spree across Europe. He spent a large inheritance, consorted with countless women - and traded on the black market during WWII. In his 40s, he returned to Britain. When Vera refused to give him cash, he drowned her in the bath and when her mother tried to intervene, Merrett showed no mercy. Donald Merrett was one of the most colourful and daring criminals of his day. From his crimes as a teenager in Edinburgh to his demise, his story is told through drama reconstruction and expert opinion.

Actors including Jim Broadbent, Eddie Marsan, Sally Hawkins, Lesley Manville and James Corden give fascinating insights into the director and his distinctive method of working.

Timeshift tells the story of how Britain's phone network was built. Incredibly, there was once a time when phones weren't pocket-sized wireless devices, but bulky objects wired into our homes and workplaces. Over the course of 100 years, engineers rolled out a communications network that joined up Britain - a web of more than 70 million miles of wire. Telephones were agents of commercial and social change, connecting businesses and creating new jobs for Victorian women. Wires changed the appearance of urban skylines and the public phone box became a ubiquitous sight.
