World in Action was, undoubtedly, ITV's flagship current-affairs series. Over four decades this multiple BAFTA winner was fearless, trailblazing and hard-hitting in its coverage of subjects that other programmes would not dare to touch - earning the ire of ITV regulators and, at times, the Government, with the team often investigating stories at their own personal risk. This volume comprises 23 programmes covering major stories from the '60s to the '90s; these include the 1967 Arab-Is...

Along the way, we'll explore some awesome natural wonders, encounter bizarre ancient life forms, witness eye-popping triumphs of human engineering, savour the reality of humanity's greatest and strangest underground endeavours, and, at the core, find one of the keys to life itself.
At 4.6 billion years old, the Solar System is our solid, secure home in the Universe. But how did it come to be? We trace the system's birth from a thin cloud of dust and gas. Shocked by a nearby supernova, the pull of gravity and natural rotation spun it into a flat disc from which the Sun and planets coalesced. It all happened in the space of 700 million years, during which the planets jockeyed for position, dodging the brutal bombardment of deadly asteroids and setting into the neat, stable system that we now realise might be a rarity in the universe. Explore the history of our planets for the first time in spectacular 3-D!
