Using cutting-edge science, 3D mapping of the Earth, and CGI reconstruction of past disasters, this captivating documentary unveils tsunamis' complex mechanics in an attempt to predict the future ones. Thanks to exclusive access in Palu, Indonesia - where a violent and very unusual tsunami recently occurred - we follow the UN's hand-picked scientific team of 'tsunami hunters' on restricted areas and into their labs, to determine what exactly caused this tsunami, and why it was so deadly.
For hundreds of years, it was thought dinosaurs ruled the planet as scaly, reptilian beasts. But new findings are proving that theory wrong, and painting an entirely new picture of the dinosaur world.

Follow the journey of a juvenile clownfish from the kingdom of plankton to a coral reef. What predators endanger an anemone fish? What is the ideal habitat for an anemone fish? Is an anemone a plant or animal? How many species of sea anemone are there in the world? Why don't anemone fish get stung by the anemone tentacles?
Naturalist Neil Hewett describes the symbiotic relationship between the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest. Why is DMS (dimethylsulfide) such an important climate gas?
Ancient plants can be found in this patch of the Daintree Rainforest. How is the forest part of the water cycle? How was this ancient patch initially discovered?
How has the cassowary adapted to thrive in the tropical forest? How are they an integral part of the food chain and ecosystem?
Phytoplankton photosynthesise to capture carbon and create oxygen. Are phytoplankton plants or animals? Why are they so important to the food chain? How do they travel? How much of the Earth's oxygen do phytoplankton produce?
What might happen if a strange dark force pulls earth from its orbit and sends us drifting out into the deadly darkness of space?
We begin our ocean odyssey on the Great Barrier Reef, where the East Australian Current first meets the coast and begins its journey south.

In this special, Chris van Tulleken, Hannah Fry and Michael Mosley examine the latest research and explore some of the big questions about this virus and the pandemic it has created. It's been just 133 days since scientists sequenced the genome of coronavirus COVID-19. Thousands of research papers have been published, and sophisticated models built that have changed millions of lives. But some basic facts about the SARs-CoV-2 virus and the pandemic it's caused still seem elusive. Drawing on the world's experts and the latest research, Chris, Hannah and Michael explore what we really know - and what we don't - about this deadly virus.
Anja explores how nature can be rebalanced with human intervention, and why intervention is needed in the first place.
