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.

A powerful story based on one family's survival of the 2004 tsunami. Maria, Henry and their three sons begin their winter vacation in Thailand, looking forward to a few days in tropical paradise, but on the morning of December 26, as the family relaxes around the pool after their Christmas festivities the night before, a terrifying roar rises up from the centre of the Earth. As Maria freezes in fear, a huge wall of black water races across the hotel grounds toward her. Based on a true story, this is the unforgettable account of a family caught, with tens of thousands of strangers, in the mayhem of one of the worst natural catastrophes of our time. However, the true-life terror is tempered by the unexpected displays of compassion, courage and simple kindness that Maria and her family encounter during the darkest hours of their lives.
