Food preservation has been a major challenge throughout Australia's history. In Victoria James Harrison invented a process of refrigeration that could make artificial ice on a commercial scale. In New South Wales, Thomas Mort and Eugene Nicolle, adapted and improved on Harrison's technology to build the world's first freezer works to produce artificially frozen food. In Western Australian Arthur McCormick came up with the Coolgardie food safe that ran on evaporative cooling, and in South Australia Tom Angove invented the wine cask.

The push for smarter farming is at the core of Australia's tough agricultural history. Richard and Clarence Smith quarrelled over who was the true inventor, but their stump-jump plough improved the economic prospects of farmers working difficult terrain. Frederic Wolseley's mechanical shears eventually won over the shearers and transformed the wool industry. Lew Bandt designed the ute for farmers needing a comfortable working vehicle, and Benjamin Dunkerley invented a fur-cutting machine that led to the iconic Akubra.

The Natural History Museum in London is undertaking the biggest challenge in its 130-year history. Dippy, the museum's iconic dinosaur, has taken centre stage for decades - but this venerable beast is not even a real fossil. Now, Dippy has been taken down, to be replaced by a 25m blue whale - a real animal skeleton, the largest animal ever to have lived on Earth. How do you move the biggest skeleton on the planet? This is an engineering challenge on a scale that no one at the museum has faced before: a 21st-century challenge in one of the oldest museums in the world. Narrated by David Attenborough. Alternative title: Dinosaur vs Whale.
