This year, the traditional programme of music by the Strauss family is conducted by one of the world's greatest interpreters of the Viennese repertoire, Carlos Kleiber.

Waterfalls: how are they born, how long do they live? How do true waterfall plants fight the flow? How do the flowers around benefit from the continuous 'rain'? How do animals, from fish and frogs through reptiles to birds and mammals, adapt to cascades and take advantage of them? How do migrant fish surmount them? How do we use waterfalls? This programme answers these questions, and in so doing, inspires fascination for one of the great natural wonders of the world.
