When Scott moves to a new house opposite the mysterious Eel Island, he cannot wait to explore.

But Scott discovers the last inhabitant of Eel Island is no ghost when he comes face to face with eight year old Sapphire, a fiercely free spirit, quite unlike anyone he has ever met. Together, in a world hidden from adults, they will share many adventures as they fight to protect the Secret of Eel Island.

True Stories -
In 2009, in Perugia Italy, in a trial that gripped the world, American student Amanda Knox and her boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito were convicted of the brutal murder of Knox’s flatmate, British student Meredith Kercher.
Knox was sentenced to 26 years in prison; she maintained her innocence from the outset.
This film, exclusive to the True Stories strand, gained intimate access to the Knox
family and their friends for almost two years, beginning just after her arrest in
November 2007. It also includes extracts from letters Amanda wrote while awaiting
trial and offers a unique insight into her life, getting behind the sensational headlines
to answer the crucial question -
Following much controversy over forensic evidence, the police investigation and the role of the media and judiciary, Amanda’s conviction was overturned on appeal and she was released on October 3rd 2011 and returned to the USA.
On the morning of January 19th 1915 two German Zeppelin airships, the L3 and L4 took off from Fuhlsbüttel , near Hamburg in Northern Germany. Both airships carried 30 hours of fuel, 8 bombs and 25 incendiary devices. They had been given permission by the Emperor Wilhelm II to attack military and industrial buildings in the east of England. The Emperor had forbidden an attack on London due to concern for the Royal family to whom he was related.
The two German Zeppelin airships crossed the Norfolk coastline at around 8.30pm. Having crossed the coast the L3 turned north and the L4 south. The incendiary bombs were dropped to enable the pilots to navigate to their chosen locations Great Yarmouth and Kings Lynn where they dropped their bombs.
A total of nine people were killed and some buildings were damaged. But the effect of the raid on a population who were used to battles being fought by soldiers on the battlefield was immense.
This is the untold story of the Zeppelin attacks and how the Royal Flying Corps eventually got the upper hand.
