A portrait of an island continent in six episodes. 1: A Separate Creation
Australia is a treasure-trove of extraordinary wildlife - the platypus, the marsupial kangeroos and koalas, the unique gum trees and vividly coloured parrots. Nature seems to be turned upside down; some mammals lay eggs, some hop rather than run and swans are black. There is nowhere like it in the world.

Dear Radio Times,
I switched on my TV set at 9 o'clock this Thursday expecting to see another edition of Alexei Sayle's Stuff as advertised - what a disappointment! Due to the whim of those mandarins in programme planning, the series was not cancelled to make way for last-minute coverage of the Embassy Pro-Am Snooker final from the Crucible Theatre, Sheffield. Spare a thought for the poor sporting viewer please!

The Prime Minister of Dominica made world headlines when she invited the US to invade neighbouring Grenada after the left-wing coup there in 1983. For this, and for her economic policies, she became known as the Iron Lady of the Caribbean. But despite the iron image she is an accessible politician - and a champion of women's right to a place in politics.
