David Attenborough reveals the vibrant environment of southern Africa. But if it was not for two great ocean currents that sweep around and shape the continents Great Cape it would be a desert. This film celebrates the rejuvenating powers of the ocean. To the east, the warm Agulhas current flows south, generating clouds that roll inland creating the wettest place in southern Africa. Home to a magical fairy-tale butterfly ballet, the area is known as the 'Google rainforest as it was only discovered using satellite images in 2005. In the sea, the warm current sustains shoals of giant kingfish and creates some of the most beautiful seascapes ever seen the Bazaruto Archipelago. To the west is the cold Benguela current. It is home to more great white sharks than any other sea on Earth. Although the current provides little rain, it delivers instead moisture laden fog to the land, and supports an incredible desert garden, where monkey beetles sleep in a bed of petals. But perhaps most impressive is where the two currents meet. The clash of warm and cold water creates one of the worlds most fabulous natural spectacles, South Africas sardine run. This is the greatest gathering of predators on the planet, including Africa's largest, the Brydes Whale.

Four artistic adventurers learn the art of survival in a gruelling contest to travel from Athens to Edinburgh using only their creative talents. Two cellists, an opera singer and an award-winning portrait painter are dropped in the Greece capital with no money and no credit cards and a deadline make their way across Europe in time for an appearance at the Edinburgh Festival. By painting, performing and by virtue of bare-faced cheek, the four adventurers have just their art and inspiration to survive on, with the winning team being the pair that has made the most money throughout the trip.
