"Plants are a silent power that have shaped the Earth, creating our atmosphere and driving the evolution of every single animal in the world - including us. This fascinating three-part series offers a totally new perspective on our planet's history. We might think humans are the most powerful living thing on Earth, but it's plants that time and again have set the agenda for life. All animals rely on plants for their survival. This is not an accident - they are the most powerful evolutionary force on Earth. Plants enabled amphibians to leave the water, they had a hand in the rise and fall of the dinosaurs, and they ensured the ultimate triumph of insects, mammals, birds and even us humans - all for their own benefit. Plants have only ever had one goal, the domination of the planet. In episode one, Professor Stewart takes a look at how plants created the world - creating the oxygen we breathe, the soil we walk on and deciding which animals live and die. In episode two, he delves into the world of flowers and explains how after the dinosaurs were wiped out, it was flowering plants which inherited the Earth. In the final episode, he takes a close look at the most powerful plant in our planet's history; grass"--ABC TV website

Hosted by John Clarke, this entertaining story about the way we sound is told through an array of illuminating interviews with linguists, historians, social and political commentators, comedians, actors, and plenty of opinionated people with genuinely hilarious anecdotes. Those featured include Rachel Griffiths, Bruce Beresford, Bert Newton, Max Gillies, Denise Scott, Mary-Anne Fahey, Santo Cilauro, Simon Palomares and Akmal Saleh.--Edited from the website

He moves from our time scale to theirs, revealing the true nature of plants as creatures that are every bit as dynamic and aggressive as animals. David discovers a microscopic world that's invisible to the naked eye, where insects feed and breed, where flowers fluoresce and where plants communicate with each other and with animals using scent and sound.
