Adventurer and journalist Simon Reeve heads to East Africa to uncover the stories behind the nation's favourite drink. Whilst we drink millions of cups of the stuff each day, how many of us know where our tea actually comes from? The surprising answer is that most of the leaves that go into our everyday teabags don't come from India or China but are bought from an auction in the coastal city of Mombasa in Kenya. From here Simon follows the tea trail, through the epic landscapes of Kenya and Uganda meeting some of the millions of people who pick, pack and transport our tea. Drinking tea with everyone from Masaai cattle herders to the descendants of the original white tea planters, Simon learns that the industry that supplies our everyday cuppa is not immune to the troubles of the continent - poverty, low wages and child labour.

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.

They start from humble beginnings but bit by bit India's rivers grow into the life force of the country. The people and wildlife of India are at their whim; they give and they take, they build and they demolish, and they feed and then starve the land. Many regard them as sacred, connecting them back to the gods.
