Men Of Wood And Foam tells the story of the birth of the surf boom in Australia, a golden decade when surfing was transformed into a sport and culture with its own music, movies, fashions and heroes. Underpinning this transition was a small group of surfboard artisans who set up their primitive factories in a former market garden at Brookvale, close to the favoured wave spots of Dee Why Point and Fairy Bower. These pioneers became known as 'The Brookvale Six'.

The major attack was called off for lack of troops. But then Wingate persuaded Wavell to do something utterly reckless - to allow his three thousand strong force to go behind enemy lines without any supporting major offensive. It would take time for the Japanese to catch up with his forces - but catch up they undoubtedly would. So on 24th March Wingate abandoned non-essential equipment, and got rid of any mules that his force didn't need. He then split his force into smaller units to find their way through the Japanese lines and he gave each unit a special means of escape. Some were given dinghies to get across the Irrawaddy river, some the means to build an airstrip and get out by air and some were sent to return through the hills of China. It turned into one of the most imaginative and complex escapes of the war. Of the 3,000 officers and men who went into Burma only 2,160 returned. Of those only 600 were passed fit enough to see further service in the war. But Churchill was impressed. He had Wingate meet the Chiefs of Staff at the Quebec Conference. Churchill then began to realise that a man, like Wingate, who kept a raw onion around his neck for sustenance and who was not too concerned about wandering around naked unannounced was probably not fit for high command. However Wingate was sent back the following year as a Major General to establish bases behind enemy lines in Burma to harass the Japanese. However he was killed in an air accident while leading this campaign. After his death the exercise was only repeated once again; by the French in Vietnam.

The Asian tsunami of 2004 took thousands upon thousands of lives. It was a natural disaster of epic proportions. Like all tsunamis, it came with little warning. Most of us believe that a tsunami on this scale couldn't hit Europe - are we wrong? In 1607 Britain experienced one of its greatest natural disasters. An enormous flood engulfed Somerset and Monmouthshire, taking a huge number of lives and reducing thousands more to poverty. Traditionally scientists had regarded this forgotten tragedy as a freak storm surge. But in a 2003 Timewatch Professor Simon Haslett and Professor Ted Bryant challenged this view - gathering evidence to suggest that 1607 was in fact a British Tsunami. But the story doesn't end there: inspired by what they had discovered about 1607, Simon and Ted decided to delve deeper into the archives. They believe they have emerged with evidence for at least four more British Tsunami. Simon and Ted's work remains highly controversial. After the Tsunami of 2004 the British government commissioned a report which concluded that risk of tsunami in Britain is small. To weigh up the evidence, historical cartographer Vanessa Collingridge will be joining Simon and Ted on their journey. Vanessa's quest is to find out for herself whether she believes Simon and Ted are right - and to discover if the risk of Tsunami to Europe is bigger than most of us think. Timewatch will join Simon, Ted and Vanessa as they gather evidence for possible tsunami from 1014 to 1929. While she does this, with the help of Natural Hazard's expert Prof Bill McGuire, Vanessa will also explore how and why tsunami are created - and why they can be such an extraordinarily destructive force.
