The South American cane toad's unstoppable journey across the Australian continent has long been the focus of great controversy and bizarre fascination. The cane toad was introduced to Australia in 1935 in an attempt to control the greyback cane beetle. Unfortunately, the toads were disinclined to eat the beetles. Instead, they set about doing what cane toads do best - multiplying, migrating and thriving. 75 years later, in a country equipped with unprecedented scientific capabilities and unabated public will to battle the invasion, it seems nothing will stop the march of the toad.

A machine or filtering system which extracts carbon dioxide from the air and stores it underground could be the holy grail of climate science. Although the idea was first proposed in 1999, scientists have so far failed to demonstrate a scrubber technology that's economic, energy-efficient and that won't cost the Earth. Until now.

In the hidden depths of Australia's wild Southern Ocean a great white shark, 3m long and packed with nearly a tonne of muscle, is savagely attacked 100m below the sea's surface by a far larger and faster mystery predator. An electronic tracking device attached to the great white records a high-speed underwater chase nearly 600m deep before the shark and its tag are savagely devoured. Two weeks later, after being carried in the belly of the unknown killer, the still functioning tag is excreted and washed ashore, withholding clues that could reveal the identity of the shark's super predator.

Matthew has been pressing for a change in the laws on seafood labelling so Australians can know what species they are eating and where it is from. But with wild fish stocks at their limit, methods of providing sustainable seafood to a growing population need to be sourced. Fish farming or aquaculture could be the answer, and this episode poses the question of what are the right species to farm.

Tides govern marine life. Tidal marshes are some of the most productive parts of the world. Numerous plants support numerous animals, yet life is not easy; predators are attracted to these enormous quantities of food, forcing animals to seek constant protection from attack. Relief comes with the crashing waves, as the tides flow once more. Between the tides, when the sands become depleted of food and air, the worms, clams and shrimps just endure the expected pause.
