The earliest explorers of Australia felt themselves to be in an alien world of bizarre animals and strange plants, a land left behind by time. That sense of strangeness pervades the perception of Australia to the present day.
This digitally remastered and internationally acclaimed documentary traces the making of Australia and the origins of its most extraordinary inhabitants. This series explores the diversity of the landscape, from the seas to the arid interior, the effects of the extremes of flood, drought and bushfire and examines the impact of two hundred years of European settlement on the land, its plants and animals.
Part 1: A Separate Creation
Traces the rise of the marsupials, from their beginnings in the primeval forest of ancient Gondwanaland to their triumph as the dominant animals in Australia, culminating in the kangaroos.
