Cleopatra, Jeanne D'Arc, Elizabeth I, Katharina the Great, Luise von Preußen and Sophie Scholl -- they are all women from strongly contrasting eras and with different backgrounds - but they have one thing in common: they are among the most influential women in history. Powerful and helpless, popular and despised, determined and desperate. The documentary portrays these remarkable women in unprecedented detail and examines their lives both in the contemporary context, as well as from a historical perspective.

This German format is not a series properly speaking, as it has no permanent cast or script continuity, but presents each time a 45 minutes documentary, usually in part presented as a docudrama (not faction, as close to scientific knowledge as possible, but visually attractive), elaborating a specific historical theme, widely varied, often exotic in the sense of a far time (as far back as prehistoric times) and/or place (around the globe), although some episodes fit together well, chronologically or thematically, but always fit to be watched separately. Usually authentic locations are used, as well as scenes from and/or interviews about the scientific research it is based upon.
This show, created by Günther Klein, Thomas Reiter and Gert Heidenreich, scores 6.9 on IMDb.

This documentary drama series tells the story of the Thirty Years War from the perspective of the people who experienced it: like the soldier Peter Hagendorf, the "Winter Queen" Elisabeth Stuart, the famous artist Peter Paul Rubens and the "Grey Eminence" Father Joseph. Their gripping accounts, letters and diary entries are condensed into a fascinating and emotive portrait of the time. In the 17th century, a generation of painters and illustrators developed the first type of visual mass medium - genre art, the pictorial representation of scenes and events from everyday life. The artists visualized the world they lived in with all its facets: markets, domestic settings, interiors, parties, inns, street scenes, and many more. This visual memory of the 17th century forms the 'archive footage' in the series. Combined with vivid drama and contributions from international experts, the series builds a bridge between "now" and "then" enabling viewers to experience what it was like to live through the Thirty Years' War.
This show, created by Philippe Bérenger, Arianne Borbach and Bo Eriksson, scores 7.3 on IMDb.
