    Written with humour and style by Sian Evans, Queen Bees is a book that looks at the lives of six remarkable society hostesses and the powerful impact they made on social history.

    The women covered in the book are Lady Astor, who went on to become the first female MP, Mrs Greville, who cultivated a relationship with Edward VII, and Lady Londonderry, Lady Cunard, Laura Corrigan and Lady Colefax.

    During the aftermath of the First World War, the previously strict hierarchies of the British class system had been weakened and a number of ambitious women had made sure it was their time. Taking their place at the top of society as great hostesses, they ruled over London from their dining tables and salons, entertaining all kinds of powerful people and celebrities.

    This is the story of a form of societal revolution, and the extraordinary women who helped it happen. Extraordinary women whose influence can still be felt today.

    Drawing on declassified documents, private family archives and interviews with retired MI5 officers as well as the families of MI5 agents, Henry Hemming's M reveals not just the shadowy world of espionage but also the brilliant, enigmatic man at its centre - Maxwell Knight.

    A nature enthusiast and jazz obsessive, Knight is seen as one of MI5's greatest spymasters and he's often credited with doing more than anyone to break up British fascism during the Second World War. Known to agents and colleagues simply as M (and rumoured to be the inspiration for the character of the same name in the James Bond series), Knight did not have many qualifications but is credited with transforming the agency e.g. he was the first in MI5 to grasp the potential of training female agents.

    This book sheds light on seven of the men and women Knight recruited and the impact they had on our history as they infiltrated some of the most dangerous political organisations around. These brave men and women's identities have never been revealed before and now it is finally possible to celebrate these courageous, selfless individuals and their world-changing actions.

    Now a major BBC Two drama, Versailles follows the life of Louis XIV as he creates his incredible palace.

    It's 1667 and at the age of just 28 years old, Louis XIV is King of France. Haunted by the memory of the Fronde - an opposition lead by the nobility against his father - Louis knows that he must tame the French aristocracy or risk being toppled by them.

    To do this, he conceives the construction of Versailles. He wants it to not only be the greatest palace the world has ever seen, but also a gilded prison that can keep the nobles out of Paris and under his control. As his enemies circle around him Louis proves himself to be an extraordinary strategist and a manipulative Machiavellian who will stop at nothing to ensure his sovereignty.

    While all this is going on, Louis' queen Theresa of Austria must fight to keep her husband's attentions while he falls for his mistress - the sister of the King of England.

    Covering an era and place laced with passion, death, love and vengeance, this sweeping, dramatic and captivating tale will delight any fans of the hit show and those interested in history
