What's Really in Our Food? – Spreads
We slather on over a hundred million dollars worth of the stuff every year. But how much do we really know about what we're putting on our toast? Is there any nutrition in our favourite spreads or are they simply convenience in a jar laden with salt, fat and sugar?

What's Really in Our Food? – Cheeses
Britain is a nation that's big on cheese, but they also have a very high rate of heart disease. This time we investigate the link. We also discover some good news for soft cheese lovers, and the bad news on mould.

What's Really in Our Food? - Nuts
Are they little more than a fatty snack or a tasty superfood? Where do our nuts come from and are their any health risks? We also investigate the role nuts could play in lowering bad cholesterol, and providing our bodies with essential nutrients.

Planet Dinosaur – New Giants
This episode focuses on the new giants, the heavyweights of the dinosaur world. It is only in recent years that experts have unearthed the biggest dinosaurs that ever lived.

One monster, the immense Argentinosaurus, eclipsed all others, being more than seven times as heavy as the Diplodocus. A single backbone was bigger than a human.

For years, these giants were considered immune to attack from any predator - until the discovery of the Mapusaurus, a new giant killer whose fate appeared to be inextricably linked to the Argentinosaurus.

Planet Dinosaur – Killer Elite
The episode looks at the last generation of killer dinosaurs - carnivores that took killing to a new level. By the end of the Cretaceous period - 75 million years ago - these gigantic and specialised hunter-killers had spread throughout the globe. In the southern continents, it was the powerful and muscular abelisaurids that reigned supreme, but it was the famous tyrannosaurids (or tyrant dinosaurs) that dominated in the north.
