Around the world, a food crisis is looming.

Many plant scientists believe genetic modification is the answer. Can GM Food Save the World? introduces Jimmy Doherty, pig farmer, environmentalist and former entomologist, who is on a mission to find out if GM can really save the world.

Cape Farming Grand dreams of farming northern Australia are almost as old as the nation itself, but changes to land-use laws in 2015 brought the prospect closer to reality. Despite environmental opposition, thousands of hectares of land have been cleared to make way for high-value crops, and so far, every commodity they've trialled has been a success. A Cut Above Australian ingenuity is turning the age-old tradition of sawmilling on its head. Radial sawing, which cuts round logs into wedges, means smaller trees can be turned into useful timber. The technology has massive implications for native forests - it means useable timber can be grown in plantations in half the time. Mining Wetlands The abandoned pits of Western Australia's Talison mine are evolving into wetlands. Filled with water from more than a century of winter rains, the dams provide habitat for growing populations of fish and insects and are attracting rare and endangered birdlife.
