A series of films from all over the world about our astonishing planet and the creatures that live on it.

In 1835 a young divinity student called Charles Darwin voyaged round the world, calling at the remote and weirdly beautiful island archipelago of Galapagos. What he saw sparked off a theory of evolution through natural selection which was to shake the foundations of contemporary religion and natural science.
Written and narrated by Lister Sinclair.

Hailed as a world architectural masterpiece, the Opera House in Sydney, Australia, was nevertheless an organisational fiasco and a monstrous political embarrassment that helped destroy one government and now threatens another. It stands as a symbol, like the Tower of Babel, of what ordinary men can't quite achieve, especially in committees.
