    It's the second largest city on earth - and the most important city in Brazil. More than 10 million people live in Sao Paulo. But fitting people isn't a problem. The challenge is the city's trash. Every day, Sao Paulo generates 14,000 tons of garbage -- the weight of the leaning Tower of Pisa. Sao Paulo has embarked on a green revolution by harnessing hectares of trash to produce energy. Aluminum cans are the most recycled object on earth, and Brazil leads the way when it comes not only to recycling them, but the speed at which it's done. This episode follows one aluminum can from the time it is picked by one of the catadores - the trash-pickers of São Paulo who make their living from collecting recyclables - through pressing, melting, and re-melting, to the moment it is ready to become a new can. State of the art technology combined with typical Brazilian ingenuity contributes not only to a clean environment, but to help poor citizens earn their living.

    It's the world's biggest city. It sprawls across more than 1,400 square kilometers. But for the 18 million people who live here, it's not just another metropolis. Mexico City is ground zero. This Mega-city violates the first rule of real estate: location. On one side: one of the world's most earthquake-prone hotspots. On the other: one of the world's most active volcanoes. And beneath their feet - a shaky foundation of landfill. To Mother Nature, Mexico City is one big target. And any moment, the Big One could hit. But against the most destructive force of nature, the city is tapping the power of science. From subways to freeways, Mexico City is harnessing cutting-edge technology to build in safety. Towering over the city is Latin America's tallest skyscraper - built to ride out an earthquake on giant shock absorbers. Most of all, the city is now armed with a slender line of defense: an earthquake detection system, built to give the city a one-minute warning before a quake arrives. Because today, the question isn't if another earthquake will hit - but when.

It's a journey that will see expert engineers Ralph and Ranen test the vehicle in the most extreme environment imaginable, fabricate and fit a totally unique suspension kit to raise the vehicles ground clearance, install powerful roof mounted lighting and put the Evoque through an aggressive Dakar rally inspired styling programme. Only if the prototype is shown to be a capable off-roader in the sand dunes of the Sahara, will Mr Kahn decide whether to offer it to his most adventurous clients…

    Asian Tsunami, Season 3 | Episode 6

    On 26 December, 2004, the largest earthquake in 40 years strikes deep beneath the Indian Ocean. Lasting eight minutes and stretching a record 1,600 kilometres in length, the earthquake's massive strength surpasses measurement on the Richter scale. Just after 8:15 AM, billions of tonnes of water speed towards land with a force equivalent to more than 30,000 Hiroshima bombs. Within minutes, the terrifying wall of water makes landfall, engulfing entire towns in its path. Deadly currents and dangerous debris tear buildings apart, as people across South Asia fight for survival. Ultimately claiming the lives of more than 250,000 people, it is the most devastating tsunami in recorded history and scientists are puzzled by the extraordinary size and savagery of the waves. Tsunami experts must analyze the geologic episode, looking for clues behind the tsunami's overwhelming force. Their findings re-define tsunami prediction and reveal that tsunamis may pose a greater threat than previously realized.
