The series deals with the experiences of British, Australian and Dutch women who were captured after the Fall of Singapore in February 1942, after the Japanese invasion, and held in a fictional Japanese internment camp on a Japanese-occupied island between Singapore and Australia. Having been separated from their husbands, herded into makeshift holding camps and largely forgotten by the British War Office, the women had to learn to cope with appalling living conditions, malnutrition, disease, violence and death.

Today we're looking at the Gloster F.5/34, a fighter design that was never given its own proper name owing to its short development life. It was built for specification F.5/34, along with numerous others, though it would lose out to the Hawker Hurricane.

Today we're looking at the beautiful -and often forgotten- Heinkel He 70. Built in answer to the Lockheed Model 9 Orion for Deutsche Lufthansa, it went on to have a prestigious career in Germany's civil aviation sector. It was also used as a military aircraft, albeit to much less glory.

David Bowie - Nature Boy
From "Moulin Rouge" Original Soundtrack
"Nature Boy" is a song first recorded by American jazz singer Nat King Cole. It was released on March 29, 1948, as a single by Capitol Records, and later appeared on the album, The Nat King Cole Story. The song was written in 1947 by eden ahbez and is partly autobiographical. It is a tribute to ahbez's mentor Bill Pester, who had originally introduced him to Naturmensch and Lebensreform philosophies, which ahbez practiced. When Cole was performing in 1947 at the Lincoln Theater, ahbez wanted to present the song to him, but was ignored. He left the copy with Cole's valet, and from him the singer came to know of "Nature Boy". After receiving appreciation for his performance of the song, Cole wanted to record it but needed consent from the writer. Eventually, he tracked down ahbez.

The FW 200 Condor was never originally intended for military use, it started its career as a long-range commercial airliner, one that showed great promise. However, the outbreak of the second world war saw it used by the German Luftwaffe as a long-range reconnaissance and maritime patrol aircraft.
To its credit, it did rather well in this role, sinking enough shipping for Churchill to call it the 'Atlantic Scourge'. Originally the Heinkel He 177 was intended for this role, but its development was so far delayed that the Condor was pressed into service as a stop-gap measure.

It had its problems. It was slow, it wasn't massively well armed, and it had a habit of breaking its back upon landing due to structural problems. But it is what the Luftwaffe had at the time, and it did an alright job despite its many flaws. Eventually the Condor was retired from front-line duties and used only as a transport, in part due to the loss of airfields in Bordeaux, and also due to it being comprehensively outclassed by most allied aircraft by late 1943.

Alexandria is a Mediterranean port city in Egypt. Founded in c. 331 BC by Alexander the Great, Alexandria grew rapidly and became a major centre of Hellenic civilisation, eventually replacing Memphis, in present-day Greater Cairo, as Egypt's capital. During the Hellenistic period, it was home to the Lighthouse of Alexandria that ranked among the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, as well as the storied Library of Alexandria.

The Romans were among one of the most monetized societies of the ancient world. They had coins for everything: From small pocket change to buy your daily bread to gold coins worth months of salary for a skilled labourer. Such a reliance on coins meant a substantial networks of mints were established, producing coins in industrial quantities.
Today, lets explore some of these important mints, and look at some examples from each mint.

Great news for Roman history fans - a new upload by Imperium Romanum!
In this episode we take a close look at Roman helmets, from the early republic to the principate to the dominate; all the most broadly used helmets are discussed. This is done in a clear chronological order, starting with the famous old republican Montefortino type, and passing by the Coolus or Hagenau type helmet, the Weisenau type, the Niedermormter, Niederbieber and finally comb type helmet. Finally, the Attic helmet - popular mostly in Hollywood - is addressed as a stand-alone type. The most commonly used system of classification which refers to helmets of the first century AD by the name 'Imperial helmets' is addressed extensively along the way as well.
