Second of a three-part documentary series.
Red Sea Rift. Thousands of miles of coral wall, atolls, fringing reefs and sheltered lagoons give the Red Sea a spectacular underwater landscape. This is a journey of exploration from the plankton-rich southern waters inhabited by vast schools of barracuda and shark, along the coral canyons of the central Red Sea to the great meadows of sea grasses in the north. Among spectacles filmed for the first time is the synchronised feeding behaviour of groups of 20 or more manta rays. Narrated by Robert Powell.

A personal enquiry into language, with Jonathan Miller.
Doing What Comes Naturally. Most parents remember the moment when their baby produced its first recognisable word. From then on, language growth is astonishingly rapid and, apparently, effortless.
Why is acquiring a first language so easy, when learning a second is so difficult? Jonathan Miller argues that it's almost as if humans are born knowing something about language, long before knowing which particular one will be spoken. A John McGreevy/Primedia production for BBCtv
