Weighing in at up to 4 million times the mass of the Sun, the biggest super massive black holes have the power to rip planets apart and swallow entire stars. Their gravitational pull is so strong that nothing, not even light, can escape. And that's a problem for astronomers, because it means they're entirely invisible to any telescope. Despite these obvious obstacles, the program meets the astronomers attempting to image a black hole for the very first time and the theoretical physicists getting ever closer to unlocking their mysteries.

The drama of the plant world is impossible to view with the naked eye. But using the latest time-lapse technology, all is revealed: how a Venus flytrap snaps shut and imprisons its prey; how the animal-like grasping hooks of the cat's claw creeper and the sticky pads of the Boston ivy help in their fight for light.

We've all heard of 'six degrees of separation', the idea that everyone in the world can be connected in just a few steps. But what if those steps don't just relate to people but also to viruses, neurons, proteins and even to fashion trends? What if this 'six degrees of separation' allowed us an insight into something at the core of Nature? We used to think the way in which web pages, power grids and people tied together was more or less random. But recently two young physicists independently discovered that fundamental laws govern networks. It's a discovery that may prove as important as Newton's observations of gravity or Darwin's theory of evolution.
