Europe and Asia; geologically they are part of the same vast landmass, Eurasia. Shaped by a series of collisions, mountain ranges have been pushed up, valleys created and a once great ocean has come and gone. These events created conditions in which great civilisations could flourish and evidence of these events can be found across Eurasia, if you know where to look.

Neil Oliver becomes one of only five people known to have set foot on the isolated island known as Skull Rock, as he joins the first scientific expedition there to discover what life it has sustained over millennia. At Eagle's Nest, Tim Flannery delves into pre-history, revealing his own role in discovering Australia's polar dinosaurs. Neil Oliver heads offshore to explore the incredible engineering feat that keeps Bass Strait oil pumping, even under a hundred-year wave. Alice Garner visits Victoria's notorious Cheviot Beach, reliving the fateful day Australia lost its Prime Minister to these inclement waters. Neil Oliver travels to Phillip Island, and reveals how an entire town was removed to save the penguins. Brendan Moar tackles the tricky sport of Blo-Karting along the flat sands of Waratah Bay. On the Gippsland Lakes, Emma Johnston hunts for a brand new species of dolphin, and finally Neil Oliver takes to the skies with aviatrix Judy Pay, for an unforgettable tour of the Bass Strait Coast in a fully-restored warbird.

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.

The bigger the drought, the bigger the flood. That certainly held true over the past year for the eastern half of Australia, with flooding rains ending the worst drought in history. The signs that the weather was turning began in 2009, when a deluge in the tropical north set the great desert rivers flowing through Central Australia. For the first time in years, the water flowed all the way to Lake Eyre, the huge salt pan in the dead heart of the continent. ABC TV reporter Paul Lockyer covered the drought in 2009, and now returns to Lake Eyre 12 months later to investigate the floods sweeping across much of south west Queensland.

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.
