Things get off to a shaky start though with the planet left so devastated that the landscape where Sydney now stands was a sandy wasteland. Until recently, nearly everything we've known about the Age of Dinosaurs has come from other continents. (STUDY GUIDE AVAILABLE + WORKSHEETS AVAILABLE)

Buckle up for a rocky ride down the Road of Time with series host Dr Richard Smith. Over four one-hour episodes, we meet titanic dinosaurs and giant kangaroos, sea monsters and prehistoric crustaceans, disappearing mountains and exploding asteroids.

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.

The story of Australia is the story of endless change: life, climate, and location. Seas come and go. Mountains rise and fall. Whole kingdoms of life triumph and disappear. The series final sees us racing down the last 65 million years to the present day. A mere blip in the long geological story of Australia but importantly for us, it is in this episode that we reveal the events that have shaped the more obvious features of the continent we now inhabit. In the wake of the catastrophe that saw off the dinosaurs, Australia set off on a lonely voyage in southern seas. (STUDY GUIDE + WORK SHEETS AVAILABLE)

One of the world's best tennis players has been caught using a banned substance; a US Supermarket chain has been criticised for selling pre-peeled mandarins in plastic containers; Australia's National Day of Action Against Bullying is the 18th of March. And last year, BtN marked the day by launching the #BehindYou campaign; NASA astronaut Scott Kelly is getting used to life on earth again after spending 340 days onboard the International Space Station; we often hear about the plight of animals that are becoming endangered or facing extinction on the news. But have you noticed how most of the featured animals are cute ones? and; he might be years off getting his car licence, but 13-year old Ardie is already a natural behind the wheel.
