The last leg of Simon Reeve's journey begins on the northern tip of Sumatra, near the epicentre of the 2004 tsunami, and takes him to the south western corner of Australia. In Banda Aceh, Sharia law is in force and Simon joins the local vice and virtue squad who patrol the streets and beaches to eradicate immoral behaviour. In the Indonesian capital of Jakarta, Simon investigates the shocking trade in exotic pets and encounters the group attempting to save one of the country's most bizarre species, the slow loris. Next stop is Bali, another Island paradise, where Simon joins a family of seaweed farmers, who cultivate great areas of sea to provide a new protein source that some hail as a miracle crop. Australia is the last of 16 countries of this Indian Ocean journey, and site of one of the world's greatest and most unspoilt wildernesses, the Kimberley. On a Barramundi fish farm, Simon meets a real life crocodile hunter, and ends up hauling a three metre crocodile onto the boat.

This program follows more than 10,000 engineers and construction workers as they fight to stop London's streets caving in or snarling up with traffic. They race to complete the brand new railway directly underneath the city, Crossrail, London's new underground, in time for the first trains to start running. Costing £15 billion, it's the biggest engineering project in Europe. Linda Miller is an engineer who is more at home constructing space launch complexes at Cape Canaveral. She must build what will become Britain's busiest station - Farringdon - an underground structure longer than the Shard skyscraper is tall.
