This new five-part series looks at man and nature in the south seas. The Polynesians set out to conquer the Pacific 2,000 years ago; like the people, the wildlife was also carried by wind and wave to every speck of land in this vast island world.
The series begins at the heart of Polynesia, the tropical islands of Tahiti. Here lush forests and clear lagoons are habitat to a huge range of exotic animals. But there is also a dark side to paradise, among a people who were ruled by taboo and sacred ritual long before the arrival of Captain Cook. Narrated by Tim Pigott-Smith .

Four episodes of the classic comedy series Steptoe and Son were, for over 20 years, assumed lost. Then a researcher discovered the tapes at the home of one of the writers, Ray Galton , who with Alan Simpson created the characters of the father and son rag-and-bone men fora one-off Comedy Playhouse in 1962. Developed into a series which attracted audiences of 20 million, the Steptoes' adventures continued until
1974, with Wilfrid Brambell as father Albert and Harry H Corbett as his long-suffering son Harold. In this story, first shown in 1970, Harold plans a skl-ing holiday.
