Australia was once part of a supercontinent and its deserts were covered in forests. Once joined to Antarctica, it split off and moved northwards into warmer climates, whilst Antarctica became an icy wasteland. Australia's move forced the life forms it supported to adapt and the evidence of this can still be found in its unique wildlife, some of which exist nowhere else on earth.

David Dimbleby investigates the importance of the sea to trade and to the individual livelihoods of coastal communities. He sails along the west coast of Scotland, starting at Craobh Haven and along the Crinan Canal, a waterway designed by East Lothian engineer John Rennie to take 120 miles off the journey from the west coast to Glasgow and safely avoid the turbulent waters around the Mull of Kintyre. He also climbs aboard the last working sea-going Clyde puffer, where he earns his keep shovelling coal in the steam room, and reflects on the role played by the river in both trade and shipbuilding.

David Dimbleby continues his voyage around Britain, sailing his yacht Rocket along coastal regions of the South East, the first point of attack for enemy forces and therefore essential to the nation's defence throughout history. Along the way, he takes a tour of HMS Victory, Nelson's flagship vessel from the Battle of Trafalgar, lovingly preserved in dry dock in Portsmouth. He also meets a carpenter who still makes wooden figureheads, discovers how a chamber pot acted as propaganda in the battle against Napoleon and reveals the way abstract art was used to deceive German submarine pilots.
