Ortis visits Florida to trace the fate of Flight 19, five Naval aircrafts that disappeared without a trace in the Triangle in 1945.

Adventurer and journalist Simon Reeve heads to East Africa to uncover the stories behind the nation's favourite drink. Whilst we drink millions of cups of the stuff each day, how many of us know where our tea actually comes from? The surprising answer is that most of the leaves that go into our everyday teabags don't come from India or China but are bought from an auction in the coastal city of Mombasa in Kenya. From here Simon follows the tea trail, through the epic landscapes of Kenya and Uganda meeting some of the millions of people who pick, pack and transport our tea. Drinking tea with everyone from Masaai cattle herders to the descendants of the original white tea planters, Simon learns that the industry that supplies our everyday cuppa is not immune to the troubles of the continent - poverty, low wages and child labour.
This program looks at disappearances at sea inside the Triangle. Ortis follows the story of the USS Cyclops, an American naval ship that vanished in the Triangle in 1918, while Rick goes in search of a rare and deadly ocean phenomenon, the rogue wave.

The Otago Coast is a formidable place to live. Cold winds and waves roll in from Antarctica battering the wildlife, flora and people - so much so that they are all shaped by their environment, often bending, but seldom broken. On this journey Neil visits the Royal Albatross as they return home from their eternal wanderings and meet their unofficial godfather. Riria Hotere discovers that while New Zealand's human story is brief, every once and a while a secret to its past is unearthed. Geologist Hamish Campbell realises there is nothing too solid about the planet we live on as he finds out erosion is causing our heritage to slip into the ocean. Marine Archaeologist Matt Carter goes diving and finds a unique recycling project dating from the glory days of New Zealand's biggest shipping company. And Neil find out about the tragic history of past seafaring days along the Catlins coast where the wild weather often forced captains to play a game of Russian roulette with their lives and that of their crews.
New Zealand's largest city is also the most coastal city in the country. It has hundreds of kilometres of coastlines and its many bays, inlets and creeks mean that most Aucklander's live within 5km of the sea. But few cities in the world also have a stronger claim to the title 'City of Volcanoes'. Over 50 have erupted within 20km of the central city. On this journey Neil steps onto the site of Auckland's biggest volcanic eruption and finds an archaeologist's dream. Could this be New Zealand's very own Pompeii? Geologist Hamish Campbell is digging in to investigate a project that baffled some of the world's smartest engineers and proves too many cooks, or in this case, experts, spoil the broth. Kamikaze surfers, Big Brother and the mice that roared. We find out how New Zealand's battle to become nuclear-free gripped the nation and rippled around the world. Marine biologist Jacky Guerts discovers a battle blooming under Auckland's Waitemata Harbour after unwanted marine hitchhikers have found their way across the ocean on boat hulls.
