With the collapse of Communism, the two major ideologies are western democracy and Islam; yet the modern world sees little other than the terror of fanatical elements. This series attempts to promote understanding through historical exposition and the addressing of areas of confrontation. It deals with the foundations of Islam in the prophet Muhammad, the two branches of Sunni and Shia, the past glories of history such as the Turkish Ottoman Empire and the defeats such as the expulsion of the Moors from the Kingdom of Granada. It also looks at issues such as the rejection of the west-dominated modern world, the struggles with 20th century laws, politics and science, the treatment and equality of women in Islam and the centrality of family. Also covered is the problem of living as a Muslim in a non-Muslim country, and the crusade to renew the faith in the modern world

"This magnificent African cake" is a phrase attributed to King Leopold of Belgium. The 1880s saw the beginning of a 30-year "scramble for Africa" which dramatically changed the face of the continent. This documentary traces the major developments of African history between the 1880s and 1945. It also examines the different ways colonial rule was established by the various European imperialists in such places as Senegal, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, and Mozambique. All of Africa, except for Liberia and Ethiopia, became subject to colonial rule, a condition unchanged until the Italian fascists invaded Abyssinia (Ethiopia) in 1935 and the outbreak of the Second World War in 1945. This documentary includes archival film footage, stills, and personal narratives which document this period
