At the start of the Renaissance, Charles of Habsburg was on the brink of becoming the most powerful man in Europe. Heir to the Kingdom of Spain, he also planned to take to the throne of the Germanic Holy Roman Empire. But Francois I, hero of the Battle of Marignano and new King of France, also had his eye on the imperial throne, and was determined to defend his Italian possessions: wars, treachery and imprisonment. The bitter clash between Charles V and Francois I was watched by all Europe with bated breath. And it was a no-holds-barred struggle. From the Chateau de Blois to the battlefield, the epic historical reconstructions and gripping narratives of this series reveal how the lust for power and personal obsessions of princes redrew the frontiers of France and other European nations.

David Attenborough explores the greatest desert on Earth, the Sahara. This vast wilderness, the size of the United States, is the toughest part of the African continent the sun rules mercilessly here. In this haunting wilderness, dunes sing, sandstorms stretch for a thousand miles and rain may not fall for 50 years. But it wasnt always like this. This is a story of an apocalypse and how, when nature is overrun, some are forced to flee, some endure, but a few seize the opportunity to establish a new order. On the fringes of the Great Desert, Grevys zebras battle over dwindling rivers, and weird naked mole rats avoid the heat by living a bizarre underground existence. Within the desert, camels seek out water with the help of their herders, while tiny barn swallows must go it alone and navigate across thousands of square miles of barren sand to find a solitary life-saving oasis. In the heart of the Sahara very little life can survive the suns onslaught. Just one animal takes on the midday sun, and it needs a spacesuit to do it. The silver ant waits until all other creatures have fled the scorching dunes before finally emerging to feed in peace.

David Attenborough journeys to the heart of Africa, which is covered in dense rainforest, it is a dynamic and pulsating habitat, packed with life. From the competitive centre of the forest to the open edge of the Atlantic Ocean, this is all about carving out space in a crowded world. Chimpanzees steal honey from hard-working sweat bees by engineering a large stick to smash open the nest. The elusive Picathartes symbolizes everything that is secret and ancient about the rainforest their bald heads are like moulded marzipan and their nest of chicks look like bizarre, scraggy dinosaurs. When darkness falls, the atmosphere changes. Using specialist technology we discover a luminescent landscape as the forest glows in the dark. Tiny frogs battle it out using kung-fu moves then hide their precious eggs in folded blades of grass. Great herds of elephants gather at a mystery meeting place to socialise under cover of darkness, and the three tonne titan bulls cause the ground to shake as they meet in furious combat, terrifying the other animals and hurling trees to the ground with their passion. Here in the Congo, no matter how tough the competition, you must stand up and fight for yourself and your patch.

David Attenborough looks at the unique and constantly changing landscape of East Africa. To survive here, creatures must be able to deal with unpredictable twists and turns wet turning to dry, famine to feast, cold to hot no matter how hostile and unpredictable it becomes. From dense forests, to snow capped peaks, steamy swamps to endless savannah, this unique and varied land is also a haven for life it supports a higher density of large mammals than anywhere else on Earth. But away from the forever-travelling herds, there are a huge cast of other characters lizards that steal flies from the faces of lions, vast dinosaur-like birds who stalk catfish through huge wetlands, and elephants who battle for three days for the right to father the next generation. East Africa can be a cruel and unforgiving place, when the stakes are high you must be prepared to take risks and if necessary to gamble with your life.

David Attenborough reveals the vibrant environment of southern Africa. But if it was not for two great ocean currents that sweep around and shape the continents Great Cape it would be a desert. This film celebrates the rejuvenating powers of the ocean. To the east, the warm Agulhas current flows south, generating clouds that roll inland creating the wettest place in southern Africa. Home to a magical fairy-tale butterfly ballet, the area is known as the 'Google rainforest as it was only discovered using satellite images in 2005. In the sea, the warm current sustains shoals of giant kingfish and creates some of the most beautiful seascapes ever seen the Bazaruto Archipelago. To the west is the cold Benguela current. It is home to more great white sharks than any other sea on Earth. Although the current provides little rain, it delivers instead moisture laden fog to the land, and supports an incredible desert garden, where monkey beetles sleep in a bed of petals. But perhaps most impressive is where the two currents meet. The clash of warm and cold water creates one of the worlds most fabulous natural spectacles, South Africas sardine run. This is the greatest gathering of predators on the planet, including Africa's largest, the Brydes Whale.

The ever-genial and disarming Louis Theroux investigates the elite world of well-heeled American hunters who pay top dollar for the ultimate luxury adventure experience: a chance to shoot big game in Africa. Lions, leopards, elephants, buffalo, hippos, even rhinos are up for grabs for those with the right kind of money. Along the way, Louis meets the mum bringing her seven-year-old along so he can bag his own springbok, the CEO intent on bringing home the head of a hippopotamus and the evangelical hunting guide who compiles videos of his most spectacular kills and preaches a macho do-or-die gospel of self-actualisation through hunting.
