The English language pushed hundreds of local languages aside. In Australia, English was coloured by a few of the local Aboriginal words - kangaroo, koala, boomerang, barramundi, woomera and cooee. Australian-English quickly developed its own character and was shaped not so much by the local native languages but by the regional and criminal backgrounds of the early settlers.

The rainforests - beautiful, mysterious and enigmatic - are time capsules from long ago that carry the genetic inheritance of millions of years of evolution. They are home to half the living species on Earth, yet so much of the rainforests' elaborate web of life is waiting to be discovered. In this 3-part series narrated by Jack Thompson, we discover the fascinating rainforest right on our doorstep, in Australia, one of the driest climates on earth.

In the three-part documentary series, Science and Islam, physicist Jim Al-Khalili travels through Syria, Iran, Tunisia and Spain to tell the story of the great leap in scientific knowledge that took place in the Islamic world between the 8th and 14th centuries. This leap is tangible, with terms like algebra, algorithm and alkali all being Arabic in origin and at the very heart of modern science - there would be no modern mathematics or physics without algebra, no computers without algorithms and no chemistry without alkalis.

You certainly can't tell an Australian by the way they look, but the minute they open their mouths, the guessing is over. The cultural DNA in this country is in the sound of the way Australians speak. But why do we speak the way we do? And what exactly is the Australian accent? These and other issues are brought to the screen in The Sounds of Aus - the national conversation we had to have. (STUDY GUIDE AVAILABLE)

Far out in the Pacific, the islands of Palau hold secrets that could upset our understanding of human evolution. Mysterious bones hidden in an isolated cave eventually reveal that our bodies are able to adapt much faster than anyone thought possible. The teeth and brow formations lead scientists to think they are ancient, but closer examination shows them to be less than 3000 years old.
