The Food that Built the World

For generations, these industries have literally been household names.

In ways almost unimaginable, they have been the lifeblood of the economy. But who are they? And how did they revolutionize and transform the world?

You don't know them, but you know their names: Milton Hershey, Will Kellogg, Henry Heinz and the McDonald's brothers. They are the people behind the food that built the world.

Behind the brand names were larger than life characters who built empires that defined far more than the world's eating habits.

They used brains, muscle, blood, sweat and tears to get to the hearts of millions around the world through their stomach, and along the way they built cities, invented new technologies, and helped win World Wars.

They were ruthless, they were thieving and they were visionaries who changed the landscape of the world forever.

The Greatest Dancer 2

The dance talent show returns, with dancers of any age and dance style competing to win £50,000 and a chance to perform on Strictly Come Dancing.

Hoping to discover the greatest dancer are the superstar dance captains: multi-platinum-selling singer Cheryl, Broadway and Glee star Matthew Morrison and Strictly Come Dancing professional Oti Mabuse.

They are now joined by a brand new dance captain - pop star, dancer and choreographer to stars such as Beyonce and Taylor Swift, Todrick Hall.

The series is hosted by singer, rapper and former Strictly champion Alesha Dixon and Jordan Banjo, member of award-winning dance troupe Diversity.

Love Island star and professional dancer Curtis Pritchard joins the show as the new 'receptionist', looking after all the acts backstage as they nervously await the biggest audition of their lives.

At the auditions the audience holds the power, and only they will decide if the mirror opens for the acts or not.

The dancers need to impress at least 75% of the audience for the mirror to open and progress in the competition.

And there is a brand new twist at the end of each episode, where one dance captain will get to pick one act and take them straight through to the live shows.

Get ready to see talent from across the world of dance, from ballet to jazz, street to ballroom, contemporary to krump, as they give the performances of their lives in the hope of opening the mirror.

Expect dramatic auditions, outstanding talent and jaw-dropping surprises.

But who will become The Greatest Dancer?
