With a backdrop of tropical fauna and fauna images, a narrator explains how rainforests seed clouds with the aerobacter bacteria to form rain as part of a water and nutrient ecosystem.
The rainforests - beautiful, mysterious and enigmatic - are time capsules from long ago that carry the genetic inheritance of millions of years of evolution. They are home to half the living species on Earth, yet so much of the rainforests' elaborate web of life is waiting to be discovered. In this 3-part series narrated by Jack Thompson, we discover the fascinating rainforest right on our doorstep, in Australia, one of the driest climates on earth.

Global warming and climate change are here and the world is hurtling towards a crisis point. How much more abuse can the Earth take? What would happen to us if our water supplies suddenly dried up?
