Comic Alan Davies attempts to answer the proverbial question: how long is a piece of string? But what appears to be a simple task soon turns into a mind-bending voyage of discovery where nothing is as it seems. An encounter with leading mathematician Marcus du Sautoy reveals that Alan's short length of string may in fact be infinitely long. Ultimately, Alan finds that measuring his piece of string could - in theory at least - create a black hole, bringing about the end of the world.

In episode two, the Second World War had far reaching effects on the history of the 'Immigration Nation'.

Not only were there fears that Australia couldn't defend itself, experts also believed the country would not grow economically without more people. So the nation's first ever Immigration Minister, Arthur Calwell, made a momentous decision to bring in non-British European immigrants for the first time.

The Great Barrier Reef is the largest system of coral reefs in the world and supports an amazing variety of marine life. This program takes the viewer underwater to look at the living coral, see how the reefs came into existence, and witness the amazing life the reefs support. We explore some major natural reefs, as well as introduced factors which affect the growth of the reefs and we look at the significance of the Reef being declared a World Heritage area.
