Everything's a superfood these days, isn't it? Broccoli, blueberries, dark chocolate, coconut oil… But, of course, you can't believe everything you read. Longevity-boosting claims make tasty clickbait, but how many of these stories are backed by solid evidence? Sadly, it's hard to tell; in our information-saturated age, it often feels like science knows more about the Higgs boson than about the health benefits of the goji berry. Food Unwrapped's Kate Quilton hopes to find some grains of truth (wholegrains, presumably), as she grills nutrition experts both conventional and complementary.

In this authored historical investigation, historian Tom Holland traces the origins of Isis's extreme violence, which it claims is justified by the tenets and scriptures of Islam. Travelling from Paris to Istanbul and from Sinjar to Cairo, he examines the roots of Isis's interpretation of notions such as jihad and caliphate, and examines the origins of the group's beliefs. Holland also questions whether the group's ideology is in part a reaction to a westernisation of Islam that ultimately dates back to the time of Napoleon.

This six-part series presents the definitive history of archaeology, a 250-year worldwide odyssey that began with the unearthing of the ruins of Pompeii buried beneath the ash of Mt. Vesuvius. In a short time, archaeologists started pursuing very different objectives: some were treasure-seekers hoping to plunder antiquities of the ancient world; others sought to prove theories about the origins of civilization or the historical accuracy of Homer or the Bible; still others focused on humans themselves, trying to determine the age of the species.
