Modern man can cure diseases, communicate at light speed, and even fly through space. But no matter how technologically advanced and civilised modern man becomes, he still has a little bit of the brutish and primitive Neanderthal in him. Up to 4 percent of human DNA is pure Neanderthal, yet the Neanderthal Man disappeared from the earth 39,000 years ago, vanishing into the mist of prehistory, never to be seen again. The question is why? This documentary goes on an exploratory journey of investigation and discovery, uncovering truths about their lives in order to illustrate the Neanderthal's traits, his strengths and weaknesses.

Follow a year in the life of the tropical Atlantic. For much of the year, the warm, shallow and sheltered waters of the Caribbean are an ocean paradise. Dolphins and manatees thrive amongst vibrant coral reefs, whilst monstrous whale sharks, bewitching bioluminescent plankton and even sun-bathing jellyfish cash in on this tropical energy. But their fate depends on events far away, off the African coast. As the Saharan heat builds, it spawns terrifying hurricanes, and all hell breaks loose across the Caribbean.

In a ground-breaking experiment, this series brings together the world's foremost experts in genetics, biochemistry, neuroscience, nutrition science and applied behavioural medicine to test the latest weight loss theory. Weight loss is not one size fits all - so the only way to diet successfully is to understand one's own body's individual biology and bespoke needs. This means that struggling with a diet is not all down to a failure of willpower: it may be a biological backlash.
