'Dutch doll houses of the 17th century' with Anne Harbers
The Poppenhuis or doll houses, and the beautiful silver miniatures made for them, were not toys for children but rather objects for rich ladies, which reflected the strong social history of women in Dutch society in their domestic setting.

'Batavia: the greatest pure story in Australian history' with Peter FitzSimons
When a Dutch ship bearing 333 people hits a reef off the coast of Western Australia in 1629, the story turns into 'Lord of the flies' meets Nightmare on Elm Street.
