Nowhere else on earth is the power of water to create, shape and sustain life so dazzlingly evident as on the tiny oceanic island of Sri Lanka. Rising from the waves, it is a land where not one, but two monsoons mark time. A world where rains pour down, clouds swell, rivers flow, mists dance across the skies, frosts dust the highlands and thousands of man-made lakes form a curious wonderland filled with a wildlife that is strange, beautiful and utterly unique. In this series we will delve into the land of these breathtaking creatures - from the largest mammal on earth, the blue whale, to the smallest, the etruscan shrew - and discover how, from the moment Sri Lanka fractured from the southern supercontinent of Gondwanaland and was carried by the oceans to its present home - it has been an island which has been ruled by one unstoppable force: water.

"Contrary to popular belief, the war in the Pacific commenced with Japanese air attacks against Hong Kong, Malaya and Singapore. Ninety five minutes before America's Pearl Harbor was infamously bombed by Japanese aircraft on 7 December 1941, Britain's territories in the 'Far East' had already been attacked from the air. Just two months later, on 15 February 1942, the world watched in disbelief as the victorious Imperial Japanese Army marched into Singapore. It was Japan's greatest victory and Britain's worst defeat in World War Two."

"An intimate portrait of Sir James Galway, regarded by many as the finest flautist of his generation. The programme charts his remarkable rise to the top of the classical music world from humble beginnings with a Belfast flute band, and is given unique access to Galway at home and on tour. Galway was born in Belfast at the outbreak of the Second World War and established himself performing with the top London orchestras in the 1960s before becoming first flute with the Berlin Philharmonic. In the mid-70s he took the unusual step of leaving to launch a solo career and became a household name with the release of his instrumental version of John Denver's Annie's Song. He has sold more than 30 million albums and at the age of 75 continues to tour the world performing to packed houses and giving masterclasses to the next generation of world-class flute players. Galway speaks frankly about his life and career and puts his success down to hard work and daily practice. The documentary captures Galway backstage, in rehearsal and performing, and at his home overlooking Lake Lucerne, Switzerland, with his wife and fellow flautist, Jeanne."
