THIS documentary is called The Private Life of a Masterpiece.

Although not, strictly speaking, an Easter edition, it does focus on a particularly baffling event which took place during the Crusades.

Writer and historian Thomas Asbridge has been puzzled by what went wrong for a garrison of supposedly elite Knights Templar troops who were massacred at a castle by the River Jordan in northern Israel.

Construction began on the fort in 1179, and quickly its reputation spread, with experts claiming it was impregnable. It wasn't.
