Sydney, 2009. At the end of an unusually hot summer three terrifying shark attacks in as many weeks caused a wave of panic to sweep through Australia's biggest city. Not since the summer of 1963, when a thirty-two-year-old actress lost her life to a vicious shark attack in knee-deep water, had Sydney been gripped by such collective fear. Shark Harbour follows a specialist 'Shark Research Team' - commissioned by the NSW government in response to the surge in attacks - as they conduct the most comprehensive and technologically advanced study of sharks that's ever been undertaken in Australia.
An expedition team comprising tiger experts, photographers, adventurers, a naturalist and a scientist, venture high into Bhutan in the Himalayas in search of big cats. They are searching for a secret tiger population which could save the magnificent creatures from extinction.
The South American cane toad's unstoppable journey across the Australian continent has long been the focus of great controversy and bizarre fascination. The cane toad was introduced to Australia in 1935 in an attempt to control the greyback cane beetle. Unfortunately, the toads were disinclined to eat the beetles. Instead, they set about doing what cane toads do best - multiplying, migrating and thriving. 75 years later, in a country equipped with unprecedented scientific capabilities and unabated public will to battle the invasion, it seems nothing will stop the march of the toad.
