    The Royal Collection is one of the most wide-ranging collections of art and artefacts in the world, and it provides an intriguing insight into the minds of the monarchs who have assembled it. In this series, BBC Arts Editor Will Gompertz examines dozens of these unique objects, in a quest to "use the collection as a prism through which to better understand the art of being a monarch". From intimate portraits to epic tapestries, from the Coronation pen to the Investiture sword, each has an absorbing history.

    'Germany as we understand it, unified and strong, only came into existence a mere 140 years ago. Before then? Well, there was Bavaria and Prussia, Saxony, Baden Wurttemberg, Pomerania, Westfalia, Schleswig Holstein - this list is extremely long. And defining where one bit ended and the next began - well, it was utterly bewildering.' Misha Glenny presents a three-part history of Germany before the world wars.
