For most of us Provence conjures up lazy afternoons in the sunshine with a chilled glass of wine, fields of aromatic herbs, lavender, sage and rosemary and the glamorous beaches of Cannes or St.Tropez. But this stunningly beautiful documentary takes us on a journey few tourists have discovered, showing us the real wild heart of Provence. From the rocky, limestone terrain of the north where Chamois graze on plants on perilous cliffs to the wetlands in the south where the river Rhone meets the Mediterranean.

In the magnificently stark landscape of the Bolivian highlands lies Tiwanaku, a 2000-year-old city that was home to one of the most influential civilisations in pre-Inca South America. Scattered throughout this remarkable metropolis are huge temples, pyramids and delicately carved monoliths constructed from colossal slabs of stone. But Tiwanaku's beauty comes with an equally beguiling mystery. The nearest quarry that could have produced the city's rocks lies some 40km on the other side of Lake Titicaca, the second largest lake in South America. How could these multi-ton stones possibly have made their way to Tiwanaku?

Floods are the most predictable of our natural hazards and can occur far from rivers and creeks. For some types of floods, you may have a relatively long warning period and therefore time to prepare. However, flash floods can occur anywhere and with very little warning. This program explains where you should go for information about the possibility of your property being flooded, what to do when floodwaters approach and once they have receded. It also shows how the design of buildings and fences and the location of access roads can reduce the impact of flooding.
