It’s the first narrative documentary effort from The New York Times – and boy have they started brightly! Investigative journalist Rukmini Callimachi takes a deep dive into the murky world of ISIS, asking who they really are; the result is a show that is gripping, enlightening and frightening in equal measure. It’s wonderfully paced, too, unfolding with each episode – just don’t listen to them all at once!

You won’t be able to swoon over Hugh Jackman, but everything else is up to par!
