Eight studies in sedition and rebellion.

The first modem terrorists were anarchists in 19th-century Russia.

Now, terrorists operate around the world, using violence to further their aims. But in what ways are they against the State? And how can the State respond?

2: Martyrs

'Hung on a post and exposed as food for wild beasts...' Blandina died a martyr in AD 177. But why did she, and so many other Christians, choose to suffer rather than bow to the Roman gods? And why are there still martyrs in our own century? Brian Redhead explores martyrs' motives down the ages.

'Utopos ha Boccas peu la chama... ' starts a poem from Utopia, Thomas More 's imaginary near-ideal community. But Utopia, which appeared in 1516, was not the first blueprint for a perfect society. And it was certainly not the last. Series producer Christopher Stone Stereo

4: Of Crowned Heads and Tyrants

Branded a 'tyrant, traitor, murderer', King Charles I was beheaded on 30 January 1649. But was his killing justified? Was it more than a rash act of those turbulent times?

Brian Redhead tracks the history of tyrannicide across the centuries.

5: Revolutions

What good are revolutions? Bloodshed and tyranny seem more common results than liberty, equality and fraternity. To answer the question, Brian Redhead takes as his starting point the forces behind two very different revolutions - the English of 1688 and the French of 1789. Producer Christopher Stone Stereo

6: Marx and Freud Marx saw existing states as upholding outdated property structures and class systems. He wanted neither. For Freud, civilisation's rules and customs were a focus for rebellion. Both men have had a profound impact on the 20th century. But did Marx make things worse? And does Freud explain why?

'Feminism exists wherever women think about their position as women in a patriarchal society.' Modem feminism began as a reaction against the ideas of the Enlightenment. But in what ways was feminism against the state - and is it still?
