    Horror in the East is the BBC documentary series that looks at the actions of the Imperial Japanese Army in the time around World War II, which were often brutal and shocking.

Using archival footage, interviews with Japanese soldiers and Allied POWs, and historical experts, Horror in the East tells the complex story of relations with the eastern world at the time. Japan in the early 20th century had been enthusiastically adopting western values, but their monarchy was doing the opposite. They were taught that their emperor was a living god, and the Army used this to their advantage. The show examines their behavior after this shift in WWII, from their assault on Nanking to the brutal and shocking treatment of POWs in their camps. Join BBC as the tell the story of wartime atrocities in Horror in the East.moreless

Lastly, in Peter Bowker's A Midsummer Night's Dream the whole world turns upside down when an engagement party turns disastrous for Hermia (Zoe Tapper) and James (William Ash) as her true love Xander (Rupert Evans) crashes the party while security guard Nick Bottom (Johnny Vegas) tries to finagle his way into the limelight.moreless
