In the second episode of his series tracing the story of the most famous trade route in history, Dr Sam Willis travels west to central Asia, to a part of the Silk Road often overlooked and yet the place of major innovations, big historical characters and a people - the Sogdian's - whose role was pivotal to its success. He travels through Tajikistan to meet the last survivors of that race and discovers how they were built by armies of captive craftsmen for one of the greatest conquerors the world has ever seen: Timur. He then goes back to school to learn where modern mathematics and astronomy were born.

In the early hours of March 24, 1989 the Exxon Valdez oil tanker ran aground in Prince William Sound, Alaska, causing the worst environmental disaster in North American history. Millions of gallons of crude oil washed ashore. The oil industry was completely unprepared to respond to the spill. A thick black tide rose and covered the beaches of once-pristine Prince William Sound. For weeks dramatic images of dead seabirds and sea otters covered in oil screened across the world. For 20 years the residents of the little town of Cordova waged the longest legal battle in US history - against the world's most powerful oil company - ExxonMobil.
