Flying coast to coast across the US aboard one of the world's largest airships, a team of scientists undertake a series of exciting experiments shedding light on the causes of wild weather, how life exploits the atmosphere, and the human impact upon the weather. The team begins their voyage with an exploration of clouds. Expedition leader and meteorologist Felicity Aston examines how clouds capture liquid water and tries to weigh a cloud in an ambitious experiment. Andy Torbet, former paratrooper, sets out to measure the forces that keeps clouds afloat by parachuting through the turbulent and hazardous air that surrounds a large cumulus cloud. Microbiologist Dr Chris Van Tulleken examines one of the most radical theories in meteorology today - that some clouds are actually alive, and as a consequence are more likely to form rain than others. Finally, the team examine why there has been an increase in hurricanes along the Gulf Coast in recent years. Their investigation leads to some surprising results.

We live on the largest inner planet, third from the Sun and the first with a moon. Earth is lucky - at just the right distance from the Sun for life to evolve in the oceans, for green plants to produce breathable air and for humankind to develop agriculture and civilisation. But from space there is no sign of the six billion people on Earth. All that is seen are vast oceans, weather systems, daily and seasonal changes and beautiful continents drifting imperceptibly.

Continuing their journey across the US in one of the world's largest airships, the team questions how the atmosphere changes with altitude and how that has an impact on the life found there. Microbiologist Dr Chris van Tulleken and former paratrooper Andy Torbet search for living microorganisms in the 'death zone' of high altitude. Parachuting from 8000m, Andy has to overcome sub-freezing temperatures and fatally low levels of oxygen to undertake the experiment. Aboard the airship, expedition leader Felicity Aston and Dr Jim McQuaid explore the impact of human behaviour upon the atmosphere, questioning whether cities can create their own weather. They unravel a mysterious increase in rainfall over the desert city of Phoenix, Arizona. Dr Sarah Beynon paraglides for a close encounter with a hawk and a unique opportunity to study up close the adaptations that enable these birds to fly so effortlessly. To conclude their expedition the team scuba dive in the giant kelp forest of Monterey Bay, California, to discover how the atmosphere creates habitats below the ocean surface. One of the most fertile and diverse habitats in the seas, it is a vivid demonstration of the power of the atmosphere to reach in to every corner of the planet, and make it a place for life.

The theory of the Big Bang - how the Universe exploded from an infinitesimal speck to create matter, radiation, time and space. Within the first trillion-trillion-trillionth of a second, the cosmos grew a hundred million times to less than the size of an atom. Then, in another instant, the Universe was the size of a galaxy. Now, 14 billion years later and strung along vast filaments, the Universe has some 50 billion galaxies that continue to expand - and where stars are born, live and die.
